The creater of "Heroes" ,Tim Kring, has approached Damon Lindelof (creator of "Lost") about the series idea. And I quote from "Entertainment Weekly":

    However, Lindelof suggested that Kring might want to check out the similarly themed comic book Rising Stars by J. Michael Straczynski, who also created Babylon 5. So Kring picked up a copy, read the jacket summary, and put it right back down: "I was like, "This is the same idea! I'm not reading this!" For his part, Straczynski says he's not ruffled: "Everybody in comics...looks to what came before and builds upon it," says the writer, who's now-in a circuitous turn of events-shopping a Rising Stars series with Sam Raimi. And what if the networks say,"Sounds too much like "Heroes"? "Well, there's always seppuku," jokes Straczynski.

    Yup. I saw that on the newsgroup. I honestly don't think heroes is that close to rising stars, but I'm glad JMS is so tactful about it at the same time. It's really easy to go out and point fingers and say "they stole my idea!!!"
