Hana Gitelman: Heroes New SuperHero

Heroes is set to unveil the newest superhero: the unlikely Hana Gitelman, shown in the publicity photo. Hana was a superhero, even before she developed any superpower - a first. She was a member of the Israeli Mossad, Israel's equivalent of the CIA. As a secret agent Hana hunted down terrorists from Gaza to Iran, all without superpowers. Now Hana has the power to receive and send e-mails, but without a Blackberry. She also can receive other types of electronic communications and control computers all with her mind. Pretty neat.

There are some spoilers in Hana's backstory, not yet broadcast. Hana was captured by H.R.G. like the other heroes, and she is determined to figure out his plans. She has already tracked down Ted Sprague, the Heroes radioactive guy. He received her email even though his Nevada desert hideout has no electricity. Hana has a dark side that she needs to learn to live with. There is a sneak peak of Hana and Ted here.

Heroes' Hana Gitelman is played by Stana Katic, who last appeared as Collette Stenger in Season 5 of 24 on Fox.
