Welcome to HRO Research

batman hero

After much thought and research, we’ve decided to change our name to HRO Research, which stands for Heroic Respectable Objectives Research. This will reflect our shift toward focusing on heroes rather than villain/antagonists. Heroes exhibit virtues that are noble and admirable.
