In a world where most humans on the planet develop superpowers soon after they're born, a boy named Izuku Midoriya was one of the few who never developed any powers. As a child, Izuku wished to become a superhero like his idol, All Might, once he developed his power, or "Quirk". As such, he was devastated once he learned that he'd never get any powers. His lack of a Quirk made him a prime target for bullying, but Izuku decided he still wanted to be a hero, and wished to go to the prestigious U.A. hero academy. Ten months before the entrance exams for U.A. started, and Izuku came face to face with All Might after being saved from a villain by him. Izuku asked All Might if it was possible for someone without powers to be a hero. However, the same villain from before ended up breaking free and attacking one of Izuku's classmates. Despite not having powers, Izuku still tried to attack the villain. While he didn't stop the villain, he did give All Might enough time to defeat them himself. After this, All Might decided that Izuku could become a hero, with his help. He decided that he would grant Izuku his own Quirk to help him achieve his dreams. After ten months of training, All Might passed his Quirk, One For All, down to Izuku. Izuku then managed to pass the entrance exam, and officially enrolled in U.A, taking on the Hero name "Deku".
