Deku is still hospitalized after his fierce battle. As the current host of the Quirk known as One For All (OFA), Deku belongs to a long line of users who possessed this Quirk before him. He meets his predecessors within a subconscious realm and one by one they speak to him, starting with the Quirk’s first host. In addition to the power and speed it grants its user, One for All also assimilates whatever other Quirk its previous users had, and Deku is now discovering those secrets.
