SF and Fantasy's 20 Most Irritating Characters 7

7 Maya and Alejandro Herrera

Role: A Mexican girl with the superpower to make people bleed marmite, and her brother - the only person who can stop her.

The painful truth: Wet and wetter. Terminally drippy duo who spent the whole second season on an interminable road journey from Mexico to New York, weeping and hugging. Maya also had annoying habit enunciating each and every syllable of her brother’s name like she was casting a spell out of Harry Potter. Sylar, who was trapped with them on the ride, at least put us of half our misery by eventually killing Alejandro.
