My Hero Academia is back in action this year, and the manga is keeping fans on edge with its final phase. Creator Kohei Horikoshi promised to uncover a lot of info in the manga’s home stretch, and while we are not there quite yet, the artist is teasing fans with all sorts of new info. And now, the creator has turn his gaze to Dabi thanks to a new info dump.
The update came this week when Shonen Jump released the latest chapter of My Hero Academia. It was there fans watched as our heroes prepared for war to knock on the door. In the wake of Aoyama’s arrest, Aizawa came to level with his student while All Might put his brain to the test with a war strategy. It was during the latter bit that fans were shown Dabi and noticed there was something different.

As you can see above, Dabi is shown in a close-up this week, and his face is looking worse for wear. It seems the burns under his eyes have expanded and are now taking up much of his face. In the past, Dabi had defined burns under his eyes and then a pair of scars that run up his cheeks. A strip of healthy skin kept the patches separate, but that is no longer the case. It seems Dabi has taken his powers too far and burned away the flesh that fans are used to seeing.
Of course, this comes as little surprise. Dabi has been using his powers quite a lot, and he even admitted to going overboard against Endeavor. Now, fans are curious to see Dabi as a whole since he could have additional scarring. And if All Might’s strategy to win the war works, well – Dabi will show up for a one-on-one battle before long!
What do you think of Dabi’s little change here? Are you ready to check in with the villain soon…? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB.
