Backward time travel seems like the best thing since (and perhaps even before) sliced bread. It makes Hiro Nakamura seen nearly unstoppable (at least when he has his powers). Think about it: Rather than goin toe-to-toe with Sylar, Hiro can simply travel back in time and defeat him while he's still in diapers. Rather than endlessly worrying about whether Ando wil become a "bad guy," Hiro can just wait to see whether he does and, if he does, go back in time and prevent whatever does and, if he does, go back in time and prevent whatever event pushed Ando over the edge. Any time Hiro doesn't quite manage to save the day, he can just travel back and try again. What superpower could be more useful to a hero?
