I wondered: could it be that Pixar had found the Holy Grail that Marvel and DC and the comics industry have (half-heartedly and ineffectively) been seeking for years: creating superheroes that would bring in a new audience of little kids?
Filmforce columnist Peter Sanderson looks at Pixar’s The Incredibles from the point of view of a comicbook Fanboy.
Peter spends a lot of time comparing the family of The Incredibles to the Fantastic Four. Which Brad Bird has said is a false comparison as the powers shared by the Incredibles were meant to represent stereotypes for the characters. Strength for the Dad, Flexibility for the wife, shyness for the daughter, and high energy for the son. The powers came naturally after figuring that out.
