Ancillary Superheroes in The Incredibles

There's a scene in The Incredibles where Mr. Incredible gains access to the secret computer files of arch-villian Syndrome. One of the things he sees is a list of super-heroes - those killed by Syndrome and his Omnidroid (™ Lucasfilm).

I feel it's always helpful to have quick access to a list of super-heroes and -powers ... so here are those from that scene:

  • Universal Man: atomic density manipulation
  • Psycwave: pyschic foresight, thought control, telekinesis
  • Everseer: telepathy, clairvoyance, magni-vision
  • Macroburst: high density force projection
  • Phylange: sonic field projection
  • Blazestone: pyrotechnic discharge, fire control
  • Downburst: flight, gaseous expulsion
  • Hyper Shock: seismic wave generation
  • Apogee: gravity control, levitation
  • Tradewind: elemental control
  • Gazerbeam: laser vision
  • Stormicide: electrical discharge, gale bursts
  • Gamma Jack: controlled radiation burst

I can't decide if I would rather have 'gaseous expulsion' as my power or be name Phylange.

Here's a twinbill of fun facts.

First, a small (and not particularly good) post I wrote about Kangaroo Jack is still the Feeling Lucky result for rodent death after more than 2 years.

Second, the DVD for Kangaroo Jack features not one, but two commentary tracks - one of which is performed by the freakin' Kangaroo himself.
