My Hero Academia Creator puts Bakugo in the shoes of another hero
Time and time again, the explosive young hero Bakugo has been voted by fans as one of the most popular crime fighters in the Class 1-A young hero stable at UA Academy. Keeping that in mind, it looks like the creator of my hero academiaKohei Horikoshi, has given Deku’s old rival a makeover, giving him a brand new costume to use when he goes into battle which is none other than the costume of Sugar Man, his fellow student who has a Quirk in which sugar makes him stronger and a better hero.
Rikido Sato might not get as much screen time as Bakugo and Izuku, the sugar strongman with the ability to increase his strength based on his consumption of sweets, but he’s definitely been a worthy ally. of his friends from class 1. -A. Like so many other Quirks that have been introduced throughout the Shonen series, Sato’s “Sugar Rush” has a downside, in which the stronger he becomes, the more likely he is to be affected by his sugar intake and that he falls asleep accordingly. By training with his comrades, Sugarman has increased his strength over time but has yet to experience a breakthrough moment in the vein of Bakugo, Froppy, Uravity, and Deku.
Twitter user Atsushi101X shared the new look at Bakugo drawn by none other than the creator of my hero academiaKohei Horikoshi, putting the fiery young hero in the Sugarman outfit for the next publication of My Hero Academia: Team Missions Volume 3:

Sugarman had a slight role to play during the fifth season’s Joint Training Exercise Arc, during which he was fortunately placed on Bakugo’s team. The quartet of Class 1-A heroes were able to defeat their opponents in mere moments, proving how far Bakugo has come in not only mastering his Quirk, but also his ability to work with his comrades. Needless to say, Bakugo and Sugarman will have major moments in season six this fall, which is expected to adapt the story arc of the war arc and the battle against the Paranormal Liberation Front.
