Heroism: honestly tho that scene in the incredibles where mr. incredible sees the names of all the old super heroes that used to be his friends /that he knew from Back in the Day and how every one of them has been killed by syndrome is such a chilling scene for so many reasons like for one, everyone he knew is dead at this point and has been killed on the same island he's at now and two, its heartbreaking be that means that almost every hero wanted to try out being a hero again despite the laws against it and wanted to try and help someone out and relive their glory days, only to be straight up murdered like fuck that scene is just so fuckin intense allthesebees Klds, could you lighten upa litt Let speak I think the core of that scene for me is, when you're insane like me and you go through it frame by främe, you can work out that Gazerbeam defeated the omnidroid twice the only super we have enough information to confirm did so. I always wondered about his body in the cave, how and why he got the password... But it makes sense. This thing goes haywire, and goes haywire again? He must have been hella suspicious! So he does what any good superhero would do tries to get to the bottom of what's really happening on Nomanisan Island. During the process he's clearly caught and wounded but has just enough time to get himself somewhere he can leave a final message, just praying that the next super to come along will find it and break the cycle. Gazerbeam is my hero. doom-exe Incredibles 2 has a lot to live up to All of this and.. I'm just realizing that the name is No Man Is An Island???? As in, everyone needs someone to depend on and connect with, no one is ever completely alone or should act all on their own Also Gazerbeam probably has X-ray vision-so he not only survived long enough to defeat the Omnidroid, he had the ability to see Syndrome entering the password. animagix101 Holy guacamole! I should pay more attention, I don't think got any of that stuff! does anyone think about the fact that now mr. incredibles has to live wi the fact that all his friends getting killed by syndrome could have been avoided if he had just been nicer to syndrome from the beginning breefolk-hates-staff I was thinking that from the beginning reading this and was shocked it went through so many comments before anyone pointed that out. Syndrome waited until his machine was almost ready to go before asking Bob to come to Nomanisan. He also was surprised to find out that he was married to "Elastigirl, which means he likely built his list and went through everyone else before finally deciding it was time to kill Bob. Also, Syndrome literally didn't find Bob until the start of the movie. He found Frozone and was stalking him. If Lucius hadn't hung out with Bob, then Frozone was going to be the next one lured. There's literally a scene of Mirage realizing that the guy in the car with her target is Mr. Incredible. He wasn't going through the list, he was stalking and finding every former Super he could, luring them to the island, and then killing them, for the sake of improving his robot. Finding Bob was just a happy accident, and Syndromes obsession with him meant that upon finding a bot that could beat Bob, he figured he'd hit perfection and was ready. and like, let's be real here in the intro Buddy was crossing the line the second he showed up, Mr. Incredible mentioned he'd been very nice to Buddy, via signing a ridiculous amount of autographs and doing pictures and stuff, and that he was not going to risk a childs life as a sidekick (albeit in less words). Buddy literally showed up by breaking into his car, and then stalked him all evening until he was arrested. That's disturbingly obsessive behavior, there's no amount of niceness that would stop Syndrome, it was an impossible situation. No amount of nice was going to appease Syndrome, the second he faced any sort of rejection from Mr Incredible he was going to lose it and go supervillain. After his arrest he should have gotten put into therapy, but yknow, set in like. the 50's. so it makes sense he fell through the cracks when the cracks were a goddamn canyon. Don't victim blame Mr. Incredible. Source: silwerhawk 108,322 notes Heroism

elastigirl discourse: relishboi hey gave elastigirl the main role in incredibles 2 to make up for the fucked up shit they made her do in the first one airfierce kay first of all she is their MOTHER and she did NOTHING less than keeping her family SAFE airfierce okay first of all she is their MOTHER and she did NOTHING less than keeping her family SAFE lookin4something Yo what? She was a liscenced pilot who had enough connects and respect to get a fuckin in less than 24 hours, then saved her family nd humanity. Being thic is a biproduct of her kicking ass all day every day tell me I'm wrong midnight-revelation Helen Par was, undoubtedly, The Hero of The Incredibles. She single-handedly saved her two children from a plane explosion fter piloting the HELL out of a government jet. She then all but single-handedly saved her husband (Mirage beat her to it by milliseconds). And to top it off, she let herself be thrown at least 40 meters into the air to save her baby that was in free fall. Bob may have been out there kicking ass and looking good Incredible throughout that entire movie. It's like she said in the beginning of the movie doing it, but ElastiGirl was Mrs. Fucking at the top of my game! I'm right up there with the big dogs! Girls, come on! Leave the saving of the world to the men? I don't think so! I don't think so." midnight-revelation ALL WHILE her husband, Mr. Incredible, was running around, out for days at a time, being too In family (to be fair, he was getting paid serious credible to help his wife raise their ney for it and he just lost his job, so it was win-win for him). But, while he was trying to e a superhero again, she was at home, being a supermother to her chaotic superpowered children and a superwife to her suspicious a ing husband, even as evidence started piling up that painted Bob's recent actions in an un- flattering light. ElastiGirl had the main role in ct he Incredibles lII because it was exactly what she deserved. It was her time to run around and be Incredible while Bob raised the kids Source: relishboi elastigirl discourse

Heck, I’m kind of mad at Helen in this scene for not acknowledging it.
