Think about it: when we first go to school, it’s like we’re manifesting superpowers every single day. We’re constantly learning how to do new things, both physically and mentally, that we had no idea we could do yesterday. It doesn’t help that we might fall asleep in the car only to wake up in our bed. We have teleportation powers, too!? School is about learning to hone those powers, find their limits, and train yourself to use them for good.

Just like the students of U.A. High School in My Hero Academia. Only their training involves a lot more fighting and a lot less sitting through algebra. Take Shoto, for example. This vinyl figure captures a battle moment from the U.A. Sports Festival arc, when he’s fighting our protagonist, Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, and realizes he’s going to have to use the fire half of his powers. Remind this POP! figure that he’s important on his own, more than just a tool to surpass All Might. He might need to hear it.
