What Is ‘The Incredibles’ About?
Set in a time when the government bans all “supers” from using their powers in public and forces them into hiding, the movie follows Bob, a retired superhero possessing superhuman strength and endurance who loves his family but also yearns for some superhero action in this new world. Things change when Bob is assigned a new mission that he needs to keep a secret from everyone, including his wife Helen, who possesses the ability to shapeshift her body like rubber. Together they have three superpowered children and when things go south and Bob is captured, his family bands together to defeat the evil Syndrome, who at one point was a super fan but turned to supervillainy when he was rejected as Mr. Incredible’s sidekick.
