The show follows Izuku Midoriya, who is born in a world where everyone has super abilities, except for him. He still believes in his heart that he can get a quirk (superpower) and he dreams of one day becoming a hero like his idol All Might, who is the most powerful superhero. All Might takes Izuku under his wing and allocates some of his power into Izuku after recognizing his remarkable value, and All Might enrolls him in U.A. High School--a school for heroes in training.
