Top 3 Things to Remember Before Seeing Incredibles 2


After almost 14 years, you might need a brief recap. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the Top 3 Things to Remember Before Seeing Incredibles 2.

For this list, we’re taking a look at major plot details from the first “Incredibles”

#3: The First Movie’s Premise


Largely drawing inspiration from the Golden and Silver Ages of Comics, the first film created a world overrun with superheroes like Frozone, super-villains like Bomb Voyage, and even super-costume-designers like Edna Mode. (xref) In the midst of all the crime-fighting is a love story between the super strong Mr. Incredible, aka Bob Parr, and the super stretchy Elastigirl, aka Helen Parr. After superheroes are outlawed due to countless lawsuits, the Parrs start a family, having an invisible daughter named Violet, a speedy son named Dash, and a baby named Jack-Jack. While Helen is content with settling down, Bob longs for the Glory Days and leaps at the opportunity to get back into the superhero game.

#2: Jack-Jack’s Powers


Throughout most of the original film, Jack-Jack appears to be the only “normal” member of the Parr family. When Helen, Violet, and Dash set out to rescue Bob, Jack-Jack is left at home with babysitter Kari McKeen. Kari has her work cut out for her, however, when the toddler’s powers finally emerge, a subplot that’s elaborated on in the short, “Jack-Jack Attack.” The villainous Syndrome tricks Kari into handing Jack-Jack over, intending to raise him as a sidekick. This of course backfires as Jack-Jack shows his kidnapper what he’s capable of. We’ve seen Jack-Jack demonstrate everything from molecular self-manipulation to laser vision, meaning he could grow up to be the most incredible superhero of all.

#1: The Underminer


If Syndrome’s defeat at the end of the first movie proved anything, it’s that capes are even deadlier than kryptonite. While the Incredibles save the day, the world can only remain safe for so long. About three months after their victory, the Parr family encounters a new villain who calls himself the Underminer. Drilling his way to the surface, the foe wages war on peace and happiness, prompting the fantastic five to put on their masks. “Incredibles 2” is set to pick up where the original left us, meaning we can expect a long-awaited showdown with the Underminer, paving the way for superheroes to make a comeback.
