This is made clear through the design of the building and the use of other elements and accessories. The high-school is an impressive structure over three levels. It is an attractive design for girls of this age, with the large amethyst fragment on the roof, and there are plenty of places to enjoy creative play. The swiveling classrooms are ideal for these students to learn more about their world and their roles. Downstairs there is a café where they can chat on their breaks. Accessories for the set include a phone for Supergirl, a flower and a pet plant for Poison Ivy and some sushi. The comparisons to the LEGO Friends set continue with the design of the figures. They have the same doll like shapes and proportions with more detailed expressions and costumes. This set comes with Supergirl, Poison Ivy and Lena Luthor.
As this is a Superhero set there needs to be some sort of threat or challenge to overcome, and this set delivers.
Here Supergirl and Poison ivy are teaming up to take on Lena Luthor and stop the hypnotised Kryptomites from destroying the school. Supergirl and Poison ivy both have disc shooters and while Supergirl flies above the school with her cape, Poison Ivy can patrol the ground on her motorbike. Lena, meanwhile, has an impressive jet with thrusters and a gripping claw.
