Normal? What do you know about normal? What does anyone in this family know about normal? … The only normal one is Jack-Jack and he isn’t even toilet trained!
WHY DOESN’T THIS HAVE MORE NOTES?
I HVAE BEEN WITING FOR THIS GIF SET FOR NINE YEARS
I think people really underestimate what this means to Edna, though. She designed /all/ those costumes, and is painfully aware that those heroes died because of it. When she says ‘I never look back, darling’, she means it: if she focuses on the people who her designs killed, it would cripple her ability to move on.
DID YOU REALLY JUST GIVE ME FEELS FOR EDNA MODE
I love that at first she thinks it’s misogynistic, and isn’t afraid to call him on it, but then we see him do what we almost never see a male superhero do : He admits he’s scared.
He’s not trying to belittle her, he’s not trying to tell her or even the kids that they’re not strong,
He’s trying to protect what he loves most because he’s terrified of losing them. The big, giant robot ripping apart BUILDINGS doesn’t scare him at all compared to losing what he loves.
I love this movie for so many reasons, but this scene is one of the bigger ones. A hero movie where the males are allowed to be emotional without appearing weak? A hero movie where females are allowed to be strong without being callous or woefully 2D? A hero movie where children are allowed to explore their potential instead of being shitty sidekicks?
And here is the smoking gun. Elastigirl went into retirement November 13th, 1955. Between that and the cape accidents in ‘57 and ‘58 as mentioned in the No Capes montage, that puts the Super Ban around there. The “present day” action of the Incredibles film, which is 15 years later, is around 1970.
The Incredibles is a period superhero story like Watchmen or The New Frontier.
thank god I finally know the year.
I always knew it wasn’t present day but I wasn’t sure if it was the mid 60s or early 70s
I shoulda known it was the 70’s because of their furniture.
Wait a minute, I was watching this for the millionth time the other day and I was just commenting on the fact that all the cars look really old, and NOW I KNOW WHY, OH MY GOD?
YES I KNEW IT
