Pos­si­bly Pixar’s great­est tri­umph, The

In­cred­i­bles, was an orig­i­nal story and far smarter than many high-pro­file comic adap­ta­tions, in­clud­ing Watch­men and

Fan­tas­tic 4. It told the story of a dys­func­tional fam­ily of su­per­heroes: the par­ents were re­turn­ing to crime­fight­ing work while the chil­dren were com­ing to terms with their pow­ers. The In­cred­i­bles ended with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new vil­lain, The

Un­der­miner, and the spin-off video game ex­panded on the film’s plot. The ru­moured In­cred­i­bles se­quel seems for­ever in limbo, but if The Pu­n­isher war­ranted three films,

surely The In­cred­i­bles de­serves at least two?
