Chapter 1

All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy. That's how far the world is from where I am, just one bad day. ~ The Joker/The Killing Joke

Izuku Midoriya is what you called a pure child. He is helpful, kind, thoughtful, selfless, and dreams of becoming a hero. While other kids his age dream of becoming heroes themselves, they only wanted it for the fame and money that came with it. Izuku however, only wanted to become a hero to save people, just like All Might. He also loves to watch other heroes as well. In fact he created detailed notebooks about their Quirks with their strengths and weaknesses and how to improve their Quirks. Though even with all these qualities, he knew that everyone was born equal, for you see …

He's Quirkless.

It all started to the trip to the doctors, he was very excited to know if he had manifested a Quirk. But when he got the results, the doctor told him to give up. The doctor didn't help sugarcoat it and explained how he couldn't manifest a Quirk. The news was very devastating to the four-year old. When got home he went to the computer to watch his favorite video clip. It was All Might's debut video where he saved a hundred people with a smile on his face. Izuku always wanted to be just like him. He always wanted to save people with a smile. To him All Might was the perfect hero that he wanted to be.

"Mom, I want to be just like him!" said Izuku as he continued to watch the video, "It's possible right?"

His mother didn't say anything, which worried the four year old.

"Mom," He asked as tears began to trickle down his face, "I can be a hero right?"

His mother started to cry and hug him repeating the word I'm sorry over and over again. On that day, his mind was starting to crack and could possibly change the tides of heroes and villains alike.

Ten Years Later

"All right students, I'm going to pass out career forms…though you all want to join the hero section don't you," exclaimed a teacher as he threw up a stack of paper into the air. As he did this, the class started to show off their Quirks. Only two people didn't do this, one was a sandy ash blonde hair male with his feet up on the desk and the other one was none other that Izuku Midoriya himself. He was thinking quietly to himself about how he was going to get into UA. While he was thinking, a voice cut threw the air like a knife. The voice belonged to none other than Katsuki Bakugo, Izuku's once childhood friend turned bully.

"Oi, don't group me with these fucking extras," Katsuki exclaimed as he put one foot on his desk to show his dominance. "You can't compare me these losers with their weak-ass Quirks!"

"Hey! Who are you calling extras asshole!" a student with long fingers yelled.

"Yeah! What makes you think you're better than us?!" another student with gravel like hair yelled.

"Ah yes I'd almost forgot, Bakugo applied to go to UA," explained the teacher Making the class go silent.

"You mean the top hero school in Japan! Isn't its Entrance Exam's difficulty rating almost impossible to get into?!" asked a student with a long neck.

"Yeah, and I got an A on my mock-test!" exclaimed Katsuki as he showed of his Quirk by shooting explosion off of his palms. "I'm going to be the greatest hero and surpass All Might as the number one hero!"

As everyone was cheering him on, only one person didn't. Izuku was thinking the opposite of what Katsuki was. "You're no hero Kacchan," He thought with malice, "You pick on the weak and defenseless. You're no hero, but a villain."

"Now that I mention it, Midoriya also wants to go to AU as well?" asked the teacher causing every one to freeze and look at Izuku. They than began to laugh at him and mock him. He hated how everyone laughed at him, treating him as an outcast.

He loathed it with passion.


The bell rung, signaling that class was over. As everyone was leaving to go home, the only person in the room was Izuku. He was taking his time to pack up and leave peacefully, but life had other plans. Katsuki walked into the room with his goons. He walked over to him and snatched his Hero Analyze notebook. Izuku yelped as Katsuki held the notebook in his hand.

"What's this shit," he yelled as he read threw the contents. "Hero Analysis for the Future, you think you're better than me Deku!"

"No, I – I don't think you're better than – than me Kacchan," Izuku pleaded as he tried to get the notebook back. "I – I just think with – with that I – I could try, but please give me – me that back!"

As Izuku was about to grab it, Katsuki slapped his hands together. A small explosion burnt and scorched the outer pages of the notebook. He then proceeded to throw it out the window. Izuku yelped as he tried to catch it, but it was no use for it had already went outside and into a pond. He was about go when suddenly Katsuki's hand fell on his shoulder. Smoke was escaping between his fingers. He was burning him. Izuku tried to put on a brave face, but the pain was making it hard to do.

"I'll give you some advice to get a Quirk," Katsuki said as he smiled sinisterly at him. "Take a swan dive off the roof and hope you'll get reborn with a Quirk in next life." He then left laughing with his two goons, leaving Izuku to ponder what is a real hero.

Scene Change: Tunnel

Izuku was heading back home through a new route to avoid his childhood bully. As he was walking, he heard a dripping noise coming from behind. As he was about to turn around his feet was engulfed in a greenish liquid.

"Perfect, a human meat shield," said the liquid. Now Izuku began to panic because he knew that this was a villain. He began to struggle, but it was no use for he wasn't strong enough. As he was almost engulfed, he was also starting to lose consciousness.

"It'll all be over soon," cackled the slime villain. Right before he slipped into dreamland, he heard someone shout…


Izuku's POV

I felt I was adrift – floating even.

I felt like someone pulled the stopper on my reality and I'm sucked down the drain into something new.

It was somehow really exciting to me.

Then I hear a voice call out to me.

"Excuse me young LAD!"

When I opened my eyes, I couldn't believe it.

It was him.

My hero, my idol.

It was All Might!

"I HOPE YOU ARE ALRIGHT YOUNG LAD," he said with his confident smile plastered on his face. "I WAS TRACKING DOWN THIS VILLIAN WHEN I LOST HIM IN THESE TUNNELS!"

He proceeded to show me the trapped villain in a bottle. I was speechless. I couldn't think of anything to say to him. Luckily for me he said something first.


I could only nod dumbly at to what he said to me. He then pulled out a pencil and opened it to a random page. He shocked me by writing his signature in it. He then handed me back my notebook.


He was about to leave when I got my mind together. I could ask him, my idol, if a Quirkless person like me could become a hero. Without thinking I grabbed on to his leg to get his attention, but instead he didn't noticed me.

What am I doing?

This is crazy?

Is he even going to notice me?

"HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING DOWN THERE," he said as he looked down at me holding his leg.

He finally noticed now!?

"Could we please land somewhere," I asked him. "I need to ask you something!"

"ALRIGHT, HANG ON!" he said as he landed near a roof of a building.

Oh my GOD! This cannot be happening right now.

"ALRIGHT YOUNG LAD, WHAT WAS SO IMPORTAIN THAT YOU DECIDED TO DO THAT LITTLE STUNT," he asked as I let go and walked to face him. I needed to know if I too could become a hero.

"Is it possible to become a hero even without a Quirk," I asked him

"WAIT YOUR QURI…" just as he was about to ask me a cloud of smoke covered the whole area. I coughed as smoke when into my lungs.

What the hell was that?!

When the smoke cleared, I soon regained my vision. What I was shocked me and filled me with disbelief. In front of me was not All Might, but instead a very unhealthy skinny looking man with blood dripping from his mouth.


"What! Where did — did All Might go," I asked the skinny man.

"I'm All Might," he said as he wiped the blood from his mouth. "I had an accident with a villain a while back." He lifts up his shirt to show me a scar so terrible it is hard to describe.

"The villain got me good, but I survived at a terrible cost though," he said calmly. "As for your question…" he paused trying to find the right words. I thought that he was going to say yes.

What he said next destroyed my world

"No, I don't think you can become a hero," he said to me. "It's nice to dream, but you need to dream realistically kid."





You were supposed to say 'Yes you can, you can become a hero'.

Not crush my dreams like every one else.

Not look down at me like every on else.

Not LAUGH at me like every one else.

You, you…

"HYPOCRITE" I shouted at him. By his startled look, I guess he didn't expect to hear that.

"I'm sor…" I cut him off before he could say any more lies to me.


After I was finished, I ran. I ran as fast as I could to get away from that hypocrite and judging from his face, he didn't plan on stopping me. I ran while thinking one thing in mind…

What did I do I deserve this torment.

AN: I had this in my mind ever since I read VillainDeku stories. I would sometimes image him as the Joker for what he went threw. DekuJoker does not belong to me, but the story does belong to me. Anyone wants to take a crack at this, then by all means please be my guest.
