My Hero Academia Challenges a Common Comic Book Trope

The latest chapter of My Hero Academia pushed back against the idea of a mentor sacrificing themselves for their student.

All Might

My Hero Academia's manga is in the middle of an exciting part where the final battles against All For One and Tomura Shigaraki are happening. In a surprising turn of events, Katsuki Bakugo has returned to help Izuku Midoriya just when he needed it most. This teamwork made a big difference, especially because they managed to save All Might from what looked like a certain death.

A while back, Sir Nighteye had predicted All Might's death, but Bakugo and Deku somehow changed the future by saving him at the right moment. In the latest chapter, All Might has a vision of Sir Nighteye, and he realizes that, even though it's a common trope in comic books for mentors to pass on the torch and die, their world is different. It's not time for All Might to die just yet.

My Hero Academia Stands Up Against Fatal Outcomes

My Hero Academia fans have been waiting for All Might to have a big moment in the final battle between Deku and Shigaraki. It seemed like All Might might sacrifice himself in the fight against All For One. But things have taken a turn. Bakugo has joined the battle to face All For One, and it looks like All Might doesn't have to die to motivate Deku.

In many comics, heroes often sacrifice themselves for the greater good, but My Hero Academia is showing that it's not that kind of story. Just like how All For One didn't really pass on the torch to Shigaraki, All Might is sticking around. This means the heroes will have an extra morale boost when they need it most. With the future changing and the death trope avoided, anything could happen in the story.
