Mohinder Suresh or Mohinder the Lizard

I've noticed, that if you type Mohinder into the search box it comes up as Mohinder Suresh. But what if you want Mohinder the lizard, should there not be a message or something so we can go there as well, like a disclaimer or something. Just a thought. --Mc hammark 11:40, 4 May 2009 (EDT)

  • Isn't there a disambig link at the end of the page? Mohinder redirects here cause that's what people will be looking for 99.99% of the times they search Mohinder. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 12:17, 4 May 2009 (EDT)

A season 1 question?

Did anyone actually notice that his accent went from having an indian accent in Genesis and over a couple of episodes (about 4 days in the heroes universe) his voice completely changed? --mc_hammark 12:22, 20 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Maybe it was hard for Sendhil Ramamurthy to keep up the accent. --Catalyst · Talk · HL 12:38, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
    • Yeah I suppose so. Just watching homecoming as well, in the dreams with sanjog he doesn't have the accent. --mc_hammark 12:49, 20 August 2009 (EDT)
      • I believe he only had a "heavy Indian" accent in Genesis. After the pilot was shot, I recall a commentary or an interview that said something along the lines of the idea that the creators were pushing for Mohinder to be a bit more of an accessible character by toning his foreign accent down a bit, and making him have more of a British accent. The rationalization, whether solid or flawed, is that after spending a little time out of India that he would begin losing his Indian accent a bit. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 15:36, 20 August 2009 (EDT)

Is there a...

...good image of Mohinder with scales on his face that are easily/clearly visible?--Catalyst · Talk · HL 22:08, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

  • Like one of him from the future, or one of him before he turns fully into a bug man? -Vampirate68 | Talk | Contribs
    • No not from the future, when ever he was in Pinehearst, like from the Eclipse episodes up to Dual. Some episode like that.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 22:20, 28 August 2009 (EDT)

not enhanced strength

so has it been confirmed? mohinder now has a corrected version of Mohinder's original power. its obvious; peter mentioned great strength and agility. --Tsmarg

  • I personally think enhanced strength can come with enhanced agility. But I guess it is possible it may be a corrected version of Mohinder's old one, since that was his "original" power.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:23, 22 September 2009 (EDT)
    • Yeah, you're super strong all over, no reason for him not to be strong on his feet. Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 14:06, 23 September 2009 (EDT)
      • However, we've not seen anyone else with super strength display that, right? Knox wasn't particularly agile, Niki/Jessica certainly wasn't, Scott wasn't...whereas Mohinder's original ability obviously incorporated agility and the jumping as well. Unless we're saying Mohinder's ended up with a different type of advanced strength, it looks like he basically has a normal version of his old ability. Maybe he's getting bits back piece by piece? In Volume 4 he was just strong. If now he's both strong and agile, maybe the rest of the bug powers could slowly return over the course of the show? Swm 09:02, 24 September 2009 (EDT)
        • It can also be ability development. Green.gif AltesUTC CH
        • I'm pretty sure they meant to imply that he still has his old ability. The climbing walls was part of the sticky goop, IIRC, but the rest of it seems to be a little more than just strength. Besides, Peter didn't mention strength, he didn't attribute his mad skills to strength, he explicity said 'agility'. As any athlete can tell you, those two are not necessarily connected, albeit neither are they exclusive. Being super strong does not make you agile. --Yamawhata? 19:31, 24 September 2009 (EDT)
          • Okay then, let's also rename Matt, Tracy, Sylar, Edward and Ando's abilities. Matt can read minds and paint the future, Tracy can freeze things and become water, Sylar can understand how everything works and absorb abilities, Edward can see outcomes of events and charge electricity, Ando can amplify abilities and charge electricity too. Would that be okay? I don't think so. Why are you so eager to change Mohinder's ability? Green.gif AltesUTC CH
            • There's a difference. All of those abilities started out as something else and then evolved. Mohinder's ability worked in reverse- he started with all the bug stuff, then it was reverted back to what it is now. What Mohinder can do is distinct from what all other users of enhanced strength can do, as Peter showed. None of them were any fitter or faster then a regular human could be. This is not like Knox in terms of just gaining his strength differently, but rather what he can actually do is different.Swm 06:18, 26 September 2009 (EDT)
              • The formula was uncatalyzed, this is where the difference started. It shouldn't have worked like the perfect formula, and it didn't. Uncatalyzed abilities aren't abilities really, they are just mutations with both benefits and side effects. Green.gif AltesUTC CH
              • Isn't a normal ability just a mutation with only beneficial effects? It would appear the only difference between Mohinder's ability and any other is that his came with negative effects. That's not unheard of with regular powers as well- Sylar's is the obvious one. The lack of catalyst doesn't seem relevent to me. I would at least suggest a note under his ability section regarding what Peter said, until we actually see Suresh again and can see exactly what's changed.Swm 07:41, 27 September 2009 (EDT)
    • His ability is definitely different. He has strength, agility, and enhanced senses.
  • Gonna jump in down here, but perhaps it would be preferable to list Mohinder's ability (both before and after) as "enhanced physiology", but note his mutation (via the synthetic formula) as "Mohinder's mutation" or "Insect mimicry". --Ricard Desi (t,c) 20:54, 24 October 2009 (EDT)

Season 4

Is he even going to appear in this season, he has been absent for 4 episodes. Homersimpson 22:07, 5 October 2009 (EDT)

  • Yes, I hear episodes 9 and 10 will have him, and more after those, as a main charactor.--Ratclaws 22:14, 5 October 2009 (EDT)

I thought he was written out. Too bad. --Jmfdr 23:53, 7 October 2009 (EDT)

    • Not untill episodes 9 or 10? Dang, isn't the season only like 18 episodes? That kinda sucks for Sedhil... --Skullman1392 23:58, 7 October 2009 (EDT)
      • Never mind, now it's episode 7 for him to show up first.--Ratclaws 09:43, 8 October 2009 (EDT)
  • Hmm. I wonder why Mohinder didn't answer Matt's phone call. Hmm. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 00:59, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
    • Why would you tease us like that?! Aaahhhh! Now I'm paranoid, thanks lol --Skullman1392 01:04, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
      • Tease? I'm just asking the question we're all asking in our minds. :) -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:08, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
        • Yes but you lead on to know more than you reveal... darn smiley faces haha --Skullman1392 01:12, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
          • Would you prefer an evil smiley face? >:ȷ -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 01:23, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
            • Point taken, smiley are for sure ok lol :D see? --Skullman1392 01:27, 27 October 2009 (EDT)
              • Mohinder is dead. After the episode Once Upon a Time in Texas, they show Samuel standing over Mohinder's dead body, which would explain why he did not answer Matt's phone calls.
                • Yes. But Samuel intends to undo his wrong-doing, which is "at least seemingly" killing Mohinder. This is Heroes, so who knows? Probably Sam will ask Hiro to save Mohinder and bring him back to present. --Janrodrigo 21:47, 2 November 2009 (EST)
                  • He may not be dead. He could be on the verge of dying, and wants to try to save him.--Catalyst · Talk · HL 21:51, 2 November 2009 (EST)
  • I'm pretty sure Mohinder was shown to be dead there. He wasn't bleeding (though I bet Edgar did the dirty work, as those wounds don't look inflicted by terrakinesis. With Samuel looking as shocked as he was in that scene, it's likely he was beyond all help. Swm 05:29, 3 November 2009 (EST)

Written Off?

He only appeared in maybe 4 episodes this season. He didn't appear for the last three episodes (first time for him). Is he coming back?--Boycool42 15:59, 27 February 2010 (EST)

  • He's been working on another show. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 22:19, 27 February 2010 (EST)
    • Oh. Is he a main character on the other show?--Boycool42 17:32, 1 March 2010 (EST)

Super Stength and Agaility

Since Peter super stength was replicated from Mohinder, I reckon the word agaility should be in there since it said he performed great leaps. I DON't THINK that Milo or Peter are parkour/freerunners or gymnastics. Just my opinion.--50000JH 12:34, 18 March 2010 (EDT)

  • No, but enhancing the strength in their leg muscles explains how they can jump. --mc_hammark 19:04, 18 March 2010 (EDT)

Sorry my fault for not being clear and not putting it in, when he resurced the woman from the car, I was thinking him being quick and nimble.--50000JH 12:34, 18 March 2010 (EDT)

Dead the first time around?

Since Mohinder's ability was suppressed by the device on his chest, is anyone else wondering whether Mohinder died the first time around in the summit explosion since Hiro was not there to save him?--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:49, 30 October 2015 (EDT)

  • My suspicion is that, yes, he died and then Renautas kept blaming him and his "terrorist organization" for all the bad things that happened. Hard for Mohinder to try to clear his name if he was dead. :) That's just my personal view, though. (Admin (talk) 11:28, 30 October 2015 (EDT))
    • See, I see it differently because I think that Hiro and "Future" Noah were there the entire time. Everything that happened the "first time" happened because Hiro and Noah were there anyways. If they weren't, then Tommy and Malina would never have been sent back. When Noah went to the hospital in Under the Mask (i think), the security footage showed discrepancies from Hiro, so that leads me to believe Hiro was there the entire time. ~~IHHTalk 11:33, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
      • You're right and the funniest part (to me) is that I just got done explaining the same thing about on the space-time manipulation talk page. Didn't think it all the way through when I posted about him being dead. heh. (Admin (talk) 11:44, 30 October 2015 (EDT))
    • I'm leaning towards Admin's first view based on Angela's prediction of Mohinder being shot dead. I'm hoping he makes it out of the explosion this time. As for Future Noah being there the entire time, I think Iheartheroes has a good point that the past and present/future selves appear to be shown coexisting at the same time both times this volume and for the majority of times we have seen Hiro's ability used in the episodes. However, that doesn't mean there wasn't a timeline that played out offscreen similar to Angela's dream before being altered by space-time manipulation (she claims her dreams always come true), which I think is what happened in order to maintain a chain of cause and effect.--MiamiVolts (talk) 11:56, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
      • Well, she always says her dreams are very hard to interpret. So she might have seen him be shot and thought it was at the summit, but he was actually shot two years later or something. ~~IHHTalk 12:01, 30 October 2015 (EDT)
        • I agree that's a possibility, though hopefully Mohinder will be able to dodge the bullet (figuratively, if not literally...)--MiamiVolts (talk) 02:33, 9 November 2015 (EST)
  • No, he didn't die because in Dark Matters, Part 5, Quentin's board included news snippets reading "Hunt for Suresh Continues" and "Suresh Finally Arrested in Chennai". This was before Miko rescued Hiro and he went back in time. -Kon (talk) 02:12, 1 November 2015 (EST)
    • Thanks, Kon. I think it's possible the article refers to a different Suresh getting caught in India, such as Mohinder's mother, considering Angela's prediction of Mohinder getting shot and assuming she was telling the truth to Mohinder.--MiamiVolts (talk) 08:18, 1 November 2015 (EST)
      • And thinking more about it, it could also be a planted false article--I think that's the line of thought Admin originally had. Either way, it should be interesting to see how Renautas handles things this time around.--MiamiVolts (talk) 10:47, 1 November 2015 (EST)
    • It also seems to me that there was evidence of time travel already occurring in the episodes of Volume One of Heroes Reborn, such as the hospital video, so it's possible the article in this webisode wasn't before Miko rescued Hiro and Hiro went back in time with Noah. In addition, as the webisodes are only near-canon and cannot change like the websites, I think it's likely that the producers are also trying to present the latest timeline there.--MiamiVolts (talk) 09:01, 1 November 2015 (EST)

Mohinder's Middle Name

In Episode:June 13th, Part Two I am pretty sure one of the reporter's referred to Mohinder by his first, middle, & last name. I didn't quite catch what the reporter said. Did anyone else? --Snow Leapord (talk) 11:26, 9 November 2015 (EST)

  • I believe it was Mohinder Kumar Suresh, it has been added to the infobox, but nowhere else yet. -Lөvөl 14:53, 9 November 2015 (EST)
