True, it wasn't necessary at all to give her powers. It's already "new" enough that they made the first teen April for a show. The alien hybrid is an odd choice, but she was partly an experiment, so it's more or less reasonably explained. They could have just left it at that though. Not having powers could have pushed the characters into more interesting solutions rather than...April can just levitate someone/something, etc.

Though I'm wondering what they think makes girls with powers OP vs boys with powers... One on a Mary Sue level, sure, though there is also a male equivalent they aren't complaining about?
