They're deconstructing IJustWantToBeSpecial. Not only are they experimenting with giving people powers, they're studying the psychological effects -- seeing which students decide "IJustWantToBeNormal" ''and mean it'', which ones turn into {{Smug Super}}s, which ones [[DyingLikeAnimals blindly accept what they're told]] or try to ferret out the truth or escape... The 'disease' in "Election" is simply testing their ability to depower anyone they eventually judge unfit of [[ComesGreatResponsiblity the role they're attempting to groom them for]].

** I know Dini had nothing to do with it, I'm trying to say that maybe they're superheroes in training. But not on a superman level, more like.. {{Batman}} with a useful, yet not crazy powerful ability.. So, being prepared to be a team of superheroes i'd suppose..

* Confirmed, [[spoler: escaping is a test to see if they are good enough to work for headmaster, also the disease seems to be right as the girl who makes the new improved disease is recruited by Nurse and headmaster to show them how to make it.]]

[[WMG: This show takes place in ''Series/{{Revolution}}'' and the school is a secret haven.]]
The first thing people might say is "Wait, how could it function in a world without power?" Well, if the government can come up with a Tower that is blackout-proof, then it could just as easily have created a school that is not affected by the blackout. In fact, the blackout could work to the school's advantage, because it would be isolated, hidden, and the staff could use horror stories of the outside world to scare people into staying in school.

* What about Ray's strength or that super fast kid from episode 2? What powers could their parents have had to make them? In fact,a lot of the kids' powers seem like they must come from interesting combinations. Ian's preflex is basically precognition + enhanced reflexes = SpiderSense. Ray must have inherited enhanced endurance and something else to get super strong.

* What does this mean? What wild mass guess are you making here? Is this about the TeenTitans cartoon that Paul Dini had nothing to do with?

The goal being to force people with complementary powers to hook up. Ian and CJ, preflex with great attention to detail would be a closer-quarters combat powerhouse. Suki+Gabe, ability to change your voice to mimic anyone, and the ability to compel people to do what you want. Every generation coming closer to real supers.
