Heroes Evolutions

Brave New World

In the eBook Brave New World, a monarch butterfly makes its way through the Arctic, "into the incongruously warm air..., borne on a glorious thermal." The clouds swirl in "vibrant hues, curling and building into an aurora borealis that rose from the horizon". As Malina moves her hands, the swirls swirls of "spectacular color" create a powerful response from the clouds. The air becomes red and pink, swirling the clouds into new shapes.


  • With the start of Heroes Reborn, promotional posters included auroras that are either blueish-green, or the more uncommon red.
  • The logo for Heroes Reborn was changed to include an aurora.
  • When Emma Coolidge sees colors as part of her ability, the effect often resembles a small aurora.
