These days it seems that film and TV can’t get enough of turning literature into live-action. Hit series like Outlander, Game of Thrones, True Blood and Orange is the New Black all came from the pages of a book, while movie versions of novels are so common that I couldn’t even begin to list them all.

Fans of the television show Heroes can rejoice, as their one time favorite is making its way back to television with a new series Heroes Reborn. When it was first launched, the television show was a huge success, but its second season foundered in the midst of the writer’s strikes of 2007-2008. The show was forced to wrap up loose ends in a haphazard manner; and though it managed to hang on for two more seasons, it never regained its stride. Now, after a few years cooling its heels, the show has been reworked. This isn’t the first time that a bunch of heroes have gone back to the drawing board. Many comic book characters have needed to be broken down and built back up again due to a variety of reasons. So in honor of the new season of Heroes, here is a look at some of the characters who have been changed for the better.

She taught Sunday school at her local church and was a member of the Woman’s Christian Temperance League. Then on August 4th 1892, Lizzie allegedly picked up an axe and murdered her father and step-mother in a most brutal fashion. The general belief is that Borden did commit the murders, but she was acquitted of the crime. We can never definitively say if Borden ever wielded that axe, but as a tribute to her, here is a look at some of the best axe wielders in pop culture and literature.
