It follows Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, who lives in a world where everyone has a Quirk (or superpower) and some people make a career out of it as superheroes.

One day, he meets his hero All Might, who is the greatest superhero in the world, and All Might bestows upon Midoriya his One For All Quirk. With his new power, Midoriya starts attending U.A. High School in hopes of becoming a superhero.

The My Hero Academia live-action movie is in development and will appear on Netflix.
