Welcome to [[http://specialschool.spiderforest.com/ Special School]].

This is the tale of a government-sanctioned class for super-powered humans, offered as part of the curriculum in a small-town university in upstate New York. The university gets extra funding, the students get course credit and special powers training, the government gets a well-trained, civic-minded generation of super-powered humans with some measure of debt and/or gratitude toward them; everybody's happy. At least, in theory. Ended Christmas 2012.

'''This series has examples of:'''

* AGodAmI: Nefarius. He's more or less right.
* AnythingThatMoves: Manny. Bisexual and not picky, although he's currently kind of dating the bouncer of a local nightclub for supers.
* BadassTeacher: Coach Julian. He ''is'' a superhero, after all.
* TheCasanova: Manny.
* CodeName: They're not supposed to have them.
* CoolTeacher: Again, Coach Julian.
* {{Cyborg}}: Karne, Manny's kind-of boyfriend.
* DopeSlap: Ruby to Iain.
* ExtranormalInstitute: Obviously, although it's more of a "course" than an "institute."
* {{Fanservice}}: The shower scene.
* KindaBusyHere: Something of a RunningGag.
* MistakenForGay: Iain.
* MundaneUtility: Ruby uses her power to start the stove because the ignitions broken.
* NighInvulnerable: Iain. It's not his skin that's invulnerable, though - whenever he's hit with something, purple armour appears on the area of impact before he can be hurt.
* PowerTrio: Iain, Ruby, and Manny.
* PsychicPowers: Manny, although not in the typical sense. He knows subconsciously exactly what to say/do to get what he wants. This makes him very good at talking people into bed. He's also used it to talk a veritable god out of leaving Earth, at least temporarily. He is, according to his bio on the cast page, "potentially the most powerful telepath on the planet."
* SecretIdentity: It was Iain's secret identity being penetrated that set off the plot.
* ShockandAwe: Ruby.
* ShoutOut: The Apartment that they live in is called Christopher Reeves Residential. Also Iain wears shirts referencing other superheros.
* SuperRegistrationAct: ARMS.
* AndThenWhat
