When you watch the end of this clip from The Incredibles, you’re probably going to be laughing at the ridiculousness of this scene. However, this scene has more relevance to our class than you might think. For those who have not seen the film (but really, who hasn’t by now?), superheroes are ordered by law to retire and blend in with the rest of society, leading bland, ordinary lives. Bob Parr aka Mr. Incredible and his family are now normal citizens who have jobs and go to school. Essentially, Bob is part of the system, playing the game that society has told us to play: start a family and have a 9-5 job which then supports the family. However, Bob is frustrated playing this game, and in this clip, he breaks the rules and leaves the system. Just as Meursault refuses to play the game, Bob quits his job (in a dramatically violent fashion) and decides to don his super suit again. In accordance with existentialism, he is finding his “will to power” (in this case, super power) and saving the world, even if society tells him not to. Instead of living a mundane and passive life as an insurance agent, Bob breaks free from society’s rules and lives a truly “super” life.
