Re: HEROES 3x08 "Villains" - missed a point about Sylar My vote goes with either Ando, or Noah. I'm inclined to believe that Arthur isn't taking Hiro's ability, but somehow influencing/brainwashing Hiro into working for him. This could be one explanation as to why Ando is trying to take Hiro down in the future. Maybe what Psion said is correct; that Hiro's powers can't be taken, so Arthur has to resort to brainwashing him instead. That could also explain why Arthur's plan seems to have prevailed in the future that Hiro visited - the man would be pretty much unstoppable with someone who can manipulate time and space at his disposal, on top of the range of powers and resources he already has.
