The My Hero Academia manga recently revealed a significant power-up for Shiragaki’s plan as he defeated Re-Destro’s Meta Liberation Army and pooled their forces to create the Paranormal Liberation Front.
Chapter 259, titled “A Quiet Beginning”, showed Endeavor leading a team of heroes to take down Maruta Shiga. During the events that followed, another weakness to Eraserhead’s quirk was revealed – he cannot undo clones formed with the Double quirk.
The chapter starts with Endeavor apprehending Maruta Shiga. After his quirk is wiped out by Eraserhead, Maruta ages very fast, which makes the heroes wonder if this is the same quirk used for Nomu’s Hyper-Regeneration.
Unaware of his crimes, the hospital staff try to defend Maruta but are quickly moved aside by Endeavor.
During the evacuation of the hospital, a Nomu with drill bits attached to it comes out of the ground, impaling Maruta. It turns out, by using Twice’s quirk, Maruta had been making a clone do his bidding.
At the same time, he focused on his master project – Tomura Shigaraki. Eraserhead’s quirk’s limits are hinted at here as it turns out he cannot erase the Double quirk.
Mirko quickly tracks down Maruta’s lab, where he experiments and stores quirks…and bursts through the wall destroying his life’s work. The chapter ends the same way as chapter 259, with Maruta being shocked about the heroes approaching him.
