+ The design of the new villain ...

It also paused to answer questions that should have been answered in the show itself. "Why doesn't Sky High fly to solve all their problems? If flying is his power, why does he have a jetpack?" (His power is just floating.) "When did Barnaby train to become a hero if nobody had ever ...
