* I know JJ's teacher is a JerkAss, but why didn't he test JJ's abilities by doing something like giving him an alternate test, or do the GoodWillHunting thing by writing problems on the chalkboard and seeing if JJ could solve them? I mean, there's being a dick, and then there's being stupid.

What bugs me is everyone comparing this to ''[[{{Series/Heroes}} Heroes]]''. I liked Heroes (well the first season anyway) Just because there are superpowers doesn't make them anything like each other. Now it is very similar to {{The Incredibles}} though.

** FridgeHorror: If the Powells are ever cured JJ will go back to being stupid just like Dr. King went back to cancerous...

** The fact is, the reason they didn't mention what disability he had is because the writers properly didn't want hate mail from it being portrayed wrong. And since it was cancelled out by his powers, they would have got more hate mail due to the UnfortunateImplications of him suddenly being cured of it despite there being nothing wrong with him.

* It just bugs me why this show only lasted for one season while similar themed but inferior quality shows like Heroes and Smallville lasted for much longer

** Why would [[spoiler:Joshua Call the paramedics to deliver what he suspects is a super-baby?]], oh, I don't know, maybe because [[spoiler: it is his own child?]] Seriously, would The Masquerade be that important for a guy if he has to choose between keeping it and [[spoiler: the life of his son?]] If The Masquerade was the reason, instead of bad writting, then the whole redemption thing Joshua seems to have going on would be ruined.

Added DiffLines:

** Yeah, that was probably it. It was just jarring how sudden it all was, and how convenient it seemed, but it kinda makes sense with the theme of getting the powers according to your shortcomings.


Added DiffLines:

** That is very likely. How is it called when one is responsible for the death off a newborn because of failing to procure appropriate medical care? Seriously, I don't remember how that is called, or if it even has a name. Criminal negligence just kinda sounded right to me at the moment.

Added DiffLines:

** Also, it was the JerkAss teacher who basically said JJ was "stupid". Nobody else said that his pre-super self was "stupid". Of course, he probably felt like he was, which is why he kept his SuperIntelligence a secret from his parents at first.


[[WMG:JJ's Learning Disability]]
* In the first episode it is stated that J.J doesn't do well in school because of his learning disability. Having a learning disability doesn't make you stupid. I should know I have A.D.D. and I get straight As. They never specify which disability J.J. had and after he gets his powers its NEVER MENTIONED AGAIN!
** 1: Your own experience with a learning disability is not everyone else's.\\
2: Do we really ''need'' to know what the learning disability is? Whatever the disability was, it got removed by the Trillsettum, and it's never mentioned again because he ''doesn't have it anymore''.

** Why ''would'' [[spoiler:Joshua Call the paramedics to deliver what he suspects is a super-baby?]] It would totally break the Masquerade right open if that suspicion came true.
*** How would it break the Masquerade? We've already seen doctors work with supers already. If they haven't noticed anything by now, it's doubtful the baby would help. Besides we know by the end of the episode that [[spoiler: the government has finally figured it out]].
**** I don't know, it depends on [[spoiler: what the baby's powers are, and what control (i.e. NONE) the baby has over them. For all he knew, the baby would cry and blow something up, or telekinetically throw something or someone across a room.]] Better safe than sorry.
** [[spoiler:Dr. King getting all of the family's powers]] actually makes sense, because he wants, more than anything, [[spoiler:to be with Stephanie and be a part of her family]]. Just like Stephanie wanted more time to spend with her family, Jim wanted to protect and fight for his family, JJ wanted to be able to learn, and Daphne wanted to know when people lied to her. Or maybe just because otherwise the whole fight scene would be "let's hit [[spoiler:Dr. King]] with stuff, but nothing will happen to him because he's ''friggin' immortal''" until Stephanie runs in with the antidote. His immortality never went away until he got injected with the Antidote.
** Your last point? The guard had ''every right'' to [[spoiler:assume George was a prisoner]]. Because he was ''sneaking around, as if trying to get away from something''.
** I actually agree with you about the [[OffScreenTeleportation Off Screen Teleportations]] and [[spoiler: Dr. King getting everyone's powers]]. I also hate how [[spoiler: They're making George a super. I liked that he was one of the normal characters]].
