|“||The symbol that was on my spaceship represents everything my parents wanted me to carry for them: hope. Hope that I can live my life to the fullest, even if they're not around to see me do it. More than anything else in the world, I want to honor that wish. They sent Kal-El off to do whatever he wants, and Izuku Midoriya is going to do that by showing everyone, including himself, that he deserves to be a Hero!||„|
|~ Izuku's resolution after learning about his origins|
The Kal-El of Earth-2014.00 was born on Krypton to Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van. Sent away from the doomed planet of Krypton in an experimental rocket by his birth parents, Kal-El landed in the forests below Mt. Fuji in the year 20XX and found by Inko and Hisashi Midoriya, a human couple who had recently discovered that they were infertile. Inko soon convinces her husband to take the child as their own, hiding him from the anti-alien paranoia that plagued Earth in the 21st Century.
The newly christened Izuku Midoriya spent the first four years of his life oblivious to his true nature. Although he was diagnosed as Quirkless by Dr. Tsubasa, Izuku soon discovered that he had incredible superhuman strength and durability. His excitement at having his "Quirk" turned into horror when an impromptu brawl with his best friend Katsuki Bakugou ended with Bakugou being thrown through a concrete wall. He then discovered his alien origins when his Super-Hearing allowed him to overhear the police's interrogation of his parents. Guilt-ridden and disgusted with himself, Izuku swore off his dreams of becoming a Hero in hopes of keeping himself from hurting anyone else.
But a chance encounter with his lifelong idol, All Might, gets the young Kryptonian to reconsider his chosen path, placing him back on the road to becoming the world's greatest Hero.
Izuku is a young, scrawny teenager who is 5'5''. He has a face described as plain-looking, with four freckles on each cheek under his eyes. His hair is black and curly, messily splaying outward. A spitcurl that he's had since birth hangs in front of his forehead at all times. He has dark irises that glow red when he's furious or when his heat vision is about to go off.
His costume consists of a two-piece green jumpsuit. The top half is a zippered hoodie with bunny ear-like protrusions designed to resemble All Might's signature hairstyle. White stripes run down the sleeves and the sides with rectangular designs near his abdomen. The stripes continue down the sides of his leggings, which end at the striped green-and-white boots. The crest of the House of El is emblazoned on the chest in white and black. An angular silver belt wraps about his waist with a triangle protrusion pointing downward near his navel.
Izuku is timid and easily startled. He's frequently spooked by people far less powerful than him and he sweats profusely when he's nervous. Prior to discovering his spaceship, he was rather secretive and lonely, purposefully distancing himself from others out of fear of hurting them like he did Bakugou. Despite this, he has a biting wit that he isn't afraid to show, responding to Bakugou's aggression with sarcasm and snarking at the Ultra-Humanite's attempts to engage in conversation while the Villain held Izuku hostage.
His parents raised him to always be kind and humble, considering himself a "normal guy" despite his overwhelming speed and strength. He insists that anyone else with his powers would be just as heroic as he is. He's also open-minded, befriending the monstrous kaiju spawn living in the course of their mother off the shore of Nagoya after realizing that they were like him: scared children living in a world that would destroy them if their true natures were ever revealed.
One of his most prominent traits is his fanboyish admiration for Earth's Heroes, having been inspired by them even after the fateful accident. He listens to Present Mic's radio show every week and is constantly filling out notebooks on the abilities and history of specific Heroes, giving him a nearly encyclopedic knowledge of all of the world's most prominent Heroes. He is particularly fond of All Might, the world's greatest Hero, and Izuku's bedroom is plastered with All Might's merchandise. This same admiration has given Izuku an insatiable desire to help others despite his personal fears, rushing in to save Bakugou from the Sludge Villain when no one else would.
Even after learning about his heritage and the wonders of Krypton, Izuku feels a much stronger connection to Earth. He refers to Inko and Hisashi Midoriya as his real parents for raising him and introduces himself by his Japanese name while being interrogated by Alexis Luthor. At the same time, he's proud to wear the crest of the House of El on his costume and wants to honor his birth parents' memory by living his life on Earth as best he can.
He has a habit of nervously or excitedly mumbling his thoughts aloud when deep in thought, which disturbs the people around him until they manage to catch his attention again.

But he has only just started his Hero training and lacks combat experience, easily being beaten back the physically inferior but far more experienced Ultra-Humanite for most of their battle.
