The Incredibles

The Incredibles is a 2004 Pixar animated feature film.


Public opinion turns against superheroes due to the collateral damage caused by their crime-fighting. After several lawsuits, the government initiates the Superhero Relocation Program, which forces "supers" to permanently adhere to their secret identities and abandon their exploits.

Fifteen years later, Bob and Helen Parr—formerly known as Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl—and their children, Violet, Dash, and baby Jack-Jack, are a suburban family living in Metroville. Although he loves his family, Bob resents the mundanity of his suburban lifestyle and white-collar job as an insurance adjuster. Together with his best friend, Lucius Best, formerly known as Frozone, Bob occasionally relives "the glory days" by moonlighting as a vigilante.

One day, after his supervisor, Gilbert Huph, prevents him from stopping a mugging, Bob loses his temper and injures him, resulting in Bob's dismissal. Returning home, Bob receives a message from a woman called Mirage, who gives him a paying mission to destroy a savage, indestructible, tripod-like robot, the Omnidroid, on the remote island of Nomanisan. Bob battles and disables it by tricking it into ripping out its own power source.

Bob finds the action and higher pay rejuvenating. He improves his relationship with his family and begins rigorous physical training to get back in shape while awaiting another assignment from Mirage over the next two months. Finding a tear in his super suit, he visits superhero costume designer Edna Mode to have it mended. Assuming that Helen knows what Bob is doing, Edna also makes new suits for Bob and the rest of his family.

Setting out for Nomanisan once again, Bob discovers Mirage is working for Buddy Pine, a disaffected former fan whom he had rejected to help work with him as a hero better known as Incrediboy. Buddy has now become a ruthless inventor and wealthy arms dealer. Having adopted the alias Syndrome, he has been perfecting the Omnidroid by hiring different superheroes to fight it, killing them in the process. Syndrome intends to send the perfected Omnidroid to Metroville, where he will secretly manipulate its controls to defeat it in public, becoming a "hero" himself. He then plans to sell his inventions, intent on having countless individuals with technology-based superpowers.

Helen visits Edna and learns what Bob has been up to. She activates a beacon Edna built into the suits to find Bob, inadvertently causing him to be captured while infiltrating Syndrome's base. Helen borrows a private plane to travel to Nomanisan. She finds out that Violet and Dash have stowed away, leaving Jack-Jack with babysitter Kari. Helen's radio transmissions are picked up by Syndrome, who sends anti-aircraft missiles to shoot her down. The plane is destroyed, but Helen and the kids survive and use their powers to reach the island. Helen infiltrates the base and discovers Syndrome's plan. Discontented with Syndrome's indifference when her life was threatened, Mirage releases Bob and informs him of his family's survival. Helen arrives and races off with Bob to find their children. Syndrome's guards chase Dash and Violet, who fend them off with their powers before reuniting with their parents. Syndrome captures the family, leaving them imprisoned while he follows the rocket transporting the Omnidroid to Metroville.

The Parrs escape to Metroville in another rocket with Mirage's help. Due to its advanced artificial intelligence, the Omnidroid recognizes Syndrome as a threat to itself and shoots off the remote control on Syndrome's wrist, making him incapable of controlling it and knocking him unconscious. The Parrs and Lucius fight the Omnidroid together. Helen acquires the remote control, allowing Bob to use one of the robot's claws to destroy its power source. Returning home, the Parrs find Syndrome, who abducts Jack-Jack with the intention of raising him as his own sidekick out of revenge. As Syndrome flies up toward his jet, Jack-Jack's own shapeshifting superpowers manifest and he escapes Syndrome in midair. Helen catches Jack-Jack, and Bob throws his car at Syndrome's plane as he boards it. Syndrome is sucked into the jet's turbine by his own cape, killing him and causing the plane to explode, the wreckage destroying the Parrs house.

Three months later, the Parrs witness the arrival of supervillain the Underminer. They don their superhero masks, ready to face the new threat together as a family.

Notes on the Setting[]

Determining when the film takes place is slightly tricky. The year 1962 is printed on the Metroville Tribune with the article on Simon J. Paladino(Gazerbeam)'s disappearance. The article notes that he was a long time advocate of Superhero Rights which lead many to speculate that he himself was a super. The NSA files indicate that a Pro-Bono Lawyer was his secret identity so he was a lawyer while doing Hero work. The various 'cape related' deaths mentioned by Edna (and shown in clips) all take place in the 1950s (with specific dates of 1957 and 58 being mentioned) which shows that supers where still active in the 50s. A fact further supported by the NSA files (found in the bonus disk) which state that following Dynaguy's death the Thrilling Three's leader, Gazerbeam, replaced him. Dynaguy was one the various super heroes sued during the 'sued' montage. Being sued could have only happened before his death. Next to consider is Syndrome's age. He is 25 in the film which is set 15 years after the prologue (as stated by Syndrome). Making him 10 as Incrediboy. Gazerbeam was the 15th Super to be killed by Syndrome's robot, and this would have happened in the year 1962. Only two other heroes where killed before Mr. Incredible was lured to the island. We don't know how much time passed between Gazerbeam's death and Mr. Incredible's arrival to the island. We do know that it was enough for Gazerbeam to be reduced to bone in a cave. He obviously didn't arrive as bones and had enough time to carve the name Kronos into the cave wall with his laser vision- which also indicates that he found out about the project. Since Violet and Dash remain the same age over the course of the film we can assume that it takes place in the same year which puts the Incrediboy sequence and the wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Parr in the year 1947 with Violet being born the following year as she is 14 at the time of the film which is set 15 years after the Incrediboy sequence.
