Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

  • Fridge Logic: If Zodon uses his mechanical arms to manipulate everything (as we have seen him do every time on screen), then how does a DNA scan work to keep him out of the school's systems?
    • No DNA, no worky. Duh.
    • *points at Doctor Positron*
      • He gets a special dispensation, as the system was designed with him in mind. And maybe that helps explain how Zodon was able to use a calculator and a Speak-N-Spell to overcome the locks that first time...
  • The kid who can turn stuff into food. The ground under a criminal is stuff. Soup is food. It would be a perfectly effective power for fighting crime. It's certainly better used for things other than crime-fighting, but what isn't? So why is he in the rainmaker program?
    • Because while yes, in theory you could use your power to sort-of fight off normal criminals, imagine what happens when you're up against a super-powered criminal. 'Oh look you made the ground beneath me soup, woe is me-oh, wait, I HAVE EYE BEAMS! *ZAP*'
      • Also, he specifically says that he can't change what it looks like, just how edible it is and how it tastes and suchlike. He can make a brick taste like chicken soup, but he can't quite make it look like it just yet.
    • So far, it appears he has to touch the thing to make it work. There may be some limitation in how his powers work that keep him from being able to do this productively.
    • The whole Rainmaker arc demonstrates that all of the Rainmaker kids have powers that could be used for crime-fighting. Presumably they get put in the program if they have abilities that are clearly much better suited for something else, or if they or their parents simply prefer a non-violent career path.
  • Is Mister Extraordinary counted on the F.I.S.S. list? He never used his flight powers in front of anyone other than his family, resulting in them being pretty much unknown. If he's not on the list, then the entire list needs to be rewritten, as he was the first documented meta-human, making him the first F.I.S.S.
    • Or he's number zero.
  • If Principal Cranston used to be President, where's his Secret Service detail?
    • For that matter, where is any acknowledgment of his former presidency anywhere outside of flashbacks? Was the knowledge magically/psychically retconned from everyone's memory?
      • No, it was hinted at quite early on, far before it was revealed. Issue #6, I think, the first with American Eagle and Patriot Act.
