Chapter 407 Recap
Centuries before the beginning of the series, a young and homeless young woman was diagnosed with an incurable disease. This sickness ended up being a Quirk, which manifested as a small spike on her arm. The young woman was pregnant and died moments after giving birth to twins. The young babies were taken from their mother’s corpse by a wave.
As this was the Dawn of Quirks, the majority of the world’s population lived in fear of Quirked individuals. They would hunt and kill them claiming that they were monsters. One of the twins, who is revealed to be a young All for One, is about to be killed by members of the Anti-Meta Army. He swiftly kills them by using his mother’s Quirk.
Since a young age, All for One saw himself as the rightful ruler of the world, despite his brother Yoichi trying to lead him down the path of good. He went as far as to kill the glowing baby who was believed to be the first human born with a Quirk, solely because he was more popular. All For One wanted to become a villain who would rule through fear.
His brother continuously tried to make All for One see reason, but he never listened, as he only saw Yoichi as property. Kudo, the second user, tried to rescue Yoichi from his unhinged brother, which caused All for One to lose control and seemingly kill Yoichi.
