MY HERO ACADEMY SPOILERS: WORLD HEROES ‘MISSION BELOW
Flect Turn is the antagonist of this film, a cold, calculating extremist focused on destroying all the Quirks, which he sees as a disease for humanity. This hatred he feels for gifts and the society of heroes has developed from his childhood. Due to his uniqueness, all the people he touched got hurt, thus preventing him from achieving any kind of emotional bond.
Flect Turn sees himself as a savior, no matter that the methods or the simple idea of disappearing the Quirks are a brutal thing against the very humanity that he tries to save. Flect projects his personal pain against the world, especially after an isolation that increased his resentment not only towards his own gift, but also against the powers of the rest of humanity.
What is the gift of Flect Turn and how it works?
In My Hero Academia: World Heroes’ Mission, Flect Turn possesses the gift of Refflect, this allows you to reflect any type of attack and effect to your opponentPlus you can save it for later use and not reflect it right away. However, like any singularity, it always has a weakness, it cannot withstand several powerful attacks, and the longer the battles, the power wears off.
During the duel with Deku, part of his abilities and what he is capable of can be observed, despite the fact that he never wanted to become a fighter. In order to have better control of its uniqueness, Flect Turn has a high-tech suit, which goes hand in hand with a belt that goes up its column, at the same time that 4 pointed mirrors protrude at the ends to use its gift . These mirrors serve to channel the absorbed energy and thus float in the air.
Flect Turn is one of more villains struggling to have been rejected as human beings with quirks, so he will do anything to create a new world where he can fit in, no matter what the price some innocent have to pay. Do you think that the gift of Flect Turn could be used to do good?
