‘Heroes’ Star Gets Powers From His Mama

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Before Heroes actor Masi Oka discovered his superpowers on the tube, he was busy looking up to his real life hero – his mom.

That’s the scoop from Oka, who says despite his amazing on-screen abilities to teleport, his mother is the one with the real superpowers.

As a single mother who emmigrated with Oka from Japan to America when he was a tyke, Oka says she always did everything she could to give him a great life.

Says Oka: “It sounds cheesy, but my mom is my hero. She gave up a lot just to make a better life for me and that’s very heroic. It’s going to take my whole lifetime to repay my mom for what she’s done.”

Oka will try to model his hero ways after his mama when season two of Heroes premieres Monday (Sept. 24) on NBC.
