Superheroes, or “supers” as they are often referred to, were at one time much valued. One of the best known superheroes is Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson). There was even some interviews with him, Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), and Frozone (Samuel L. Jackson).

On the night of his wedding, Mr. Incredible had to foil a suicide attempt by a bank president while Bomb Voyage (Dominique Lewis) tries to rob his bank. Interference at the bank by Mr. Incredible’s number one fan Buddy Pine (Jason Lee) wanting to become his ward “IncrediBoy” results in damage to train tracks which force Mr. Incredible to stop the train. Mr. Incredible, in his civilian identity of Bob Parr, finally meets with Lucius Best (Frozone) at the church and is officially wed to Elastigirl.

The man saved from his suicide attempt by Mr. Incredible sues him for injuring him. Soon, injuries and other incidents suffered by civilians make superheroes unpopular with the public. This prompts a government-sponsored law to conceal them. Fifteen years later, Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl have settled into a suburban lifestyle near the city of Metroville, under their civilian names. Their older children Dash (Spencer Fox) and Violet (Sarah Vowell) have also inherited superhuman powers — the hot-headed Dash obtains the ability of super-speed and the shy and timid older Violet has the ability to create forcefields and make herself invisible; but their infant Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile and Maeve Andrews) has no visible powers. Bob finds his job at an insurance agency boring and tedious, and often yearns for his former life and secretly goes at night with his best friend Lucius Best (Frozone) to find and stop crime. One such night ends in total disaster – although they save the tenants of a burning building, Bob and Lucius have to flee the police after they accidentally break into the jewellery store next door. When Helen finds out what happened after Bob gets home (very late), they only just avoid having an argument in front of the kids.

The Parrs arrive in Metroville as the Omnidroid rampages through the city, as, using its ability to learn and cope with opponents, it had separated Syndrome from his remote control over it. Assisted by Frozone, they seize the remote control and take advantage of its design to destroy the Omnidroid. They then return home, but find that Syndrome, having discovered the Parrs’ identity, is attempting to kidnap Jack-Jack and make him his sidekick. As Syndrome flies to his waiting jet, Jack-Jack’s innate superhuman power manifests itself as the ability to shapeshift into a number of difficult-to-handle forms, the last being a devilish being, causing Syndrome to drop him. Bob throws Helen into the air to safely catch Jack-Jack. The he throws his new car at Syndrome’s jet, which causes, as set up earlier by Edna’s list of cape-caused accidents, Syndrome’s cape to get caught in one of his jet engines, dragging him to his apparent death. The Parrs resume their normal life, albeit more contentedly with their status quo than before. But when the city is threatened by a new villain called the Underminer (John Ratzenberger), the family of supers prepare to fight anew together.
