Powerless - Wayne Dream Team

After successfully stopping Wayne Security from being shutdown, Emily's (Vanessa Hudgens) latest struggle is to try and be both a boss and friend to her team while getting them to take the deadline of their next product release more seriously. To do this she plays a little fast-and-loose with the truth, using the head of HR (Michael D. Cohen) to fight her battles for her, which of course eventually blows up in her face. While Emily's choices initially backfire, standing up to take one for the team does buy her some credibility going forward as well build some trust between the team and their new leader.

A pretty straightforward office sitcom episode, "Wayne Dream Team" does feature a couple of pieces unique to Charm City and its super-hero residents. First, the product launch itself involves an umbrella to keep citizens safe from falling debris caused by regular super-villain attacks. Pretty clever when you think about it. The second is the office's fantasy super-hero league (why bet on football when you super-hero activities effect everyone's lives every single day?). Both of these turn out to be clever ideas for an office set in a city with super-heroes.
