From sometime in the year 2012. Who knows how many abilities he's picked up in that time. He definitely has displayed time travel.

His goal in 2008 appears to be discovering what went wrong to cause the future he comes from, and to fix it. All of which seems to center around Pinehearst, and the troubles there. So far, he seems more interested in warning and pushing the people of this time to fight against it, than taking action on his own.

It is known that a lot of what went wrong centered around Pinehearst's quest to complete the formula that would give people abilities. How this destroyed the future and turned it into something terrible, he has yet to reveal. It appears he retains close ties to many people in this future of his, but he has certainly become darker and walled off. This may have something to do with his imprisonment in Level 5, or the fact that he obtained Sylar's ability and has lived with the side effects for the last four years.


  • "I'll be around. There's a lot that I need to do. I don't know which move will change the way things are yet. When I stop coming back, you'll know I fixed it."
