The shame about Hiro was the loss of potential. He had an amazing power. He could stop and twist time, but did he use his power wisely? Hell no. He jumped back and forth in time, stomping butterflies into paste, and never bothered to worry about the damage that he was causing. Every time he went back in time he splintered reality. But did he care? Nope. It was OK as long as he got what he wanted - AND HE NEVER GOT WHAT HE WANTED!!!
What’s even worse is that he saw one of those alternate futures in Five Years Gone, and he pretty much found out that his reality was messed up because Future Hiro kept changing things. But did Hiro learn from Future Hiro’s mistakes? Nope. All he learned from meeting Future Hiro was that he had forgotten how to have fun because he was a bad ass. WTF?
And thus began Hiro becoming the comedy (in someone’s mind) relief of the show. Sure there were infrequent moments where there was a flicker of the season 1 character, but mostly he was stupid and spent more time on his own agenda than helping anyone else.30 Days of Heroes
