Robert "Bob" Parr (superhero name Mr. Incredible), is a FAT fictional superhero with great strength and durability introduced in the animated Disney/Pixar motion picture "The Incredibles". His strength is of such dimensions that he can single-handedly lift a semi-truck with little difficulty. His best friend is fellow "super" Lucius Best a.k.a. Frozone. Mr. Incredible is married to Elastigirl (Helen Parr), who have three children together, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack.

"True to his incredible strengths, all Bob wants to do is save the world - even if he has to do it undercover. It takes almost losing everything, however, for him to see that the real source of his power is his extraordinary family."- Official Pixar Website

The Incredibles

After being forced into retirement fifteen years prior to the film due to "Supers" being outlawed, Mr. Incredible worked at an insurance company (Insuricare) under his real name, Bob. He found it boring and repeatedly told his honest customers how to get around the system to get the money they deserved. His boss, Gilbert Huph, finally fired him for it as well as a particularly nasty incident in which Parr threw Huph through four office walls.

At home later that night he found a package waiting for him. It was a proposal from a mysterious woman named Mirage to work for her and resume his life as a Super. Eager to relive his glory days and support his family, he agrees. While not in the shape that he was in his prime (he even popped his back in the process), he was still able to defeat a robot, the Omnidroid 8000, sent to stop him as his first mission. He soon worked himself back into shape over the several missions Mirage set up for him.

However, he slowly found out things are not as they seem. He finds a computer file showing the names of several Supers and their confirmed deaths by the Omnidroid. He is then captured by his true employer, Syndrome, who then plots to eliminate all the Supers so he can replace them using a fake attack, the Omnidroid, and its remote destruction, making Syndrome seem like a hero.

With help from Mirage and backup from Frozone, he and his family destroy the Omnidroid and manage to save Jack-Jack from Syndrome.


Mr. Incredible's primary superpower is super strength. He is seen bench-pressing locomotives and throwing boulders at speed, even in middle age. This gives him a leaping ability of a few stories, with corresponding agility. He also has good swimming ability, though not as a separate power, though his lung capacity does not appear to be substantially greater than a normal human's. His strength also gives him superhuman speed, as he can run significantly faster than a normal human—though neither his speed nor agility approach that of his son Dash. He's also very agile for a man of his size.

Mr. Incredible also has a high degree of invulnerability. He can withstand tremendous amounts of physical trauma, including multistory falls, the direct impact of a train, and breaking through brick walls. He can be cut, though, with very hard metals and a suitable amount of force.

He also has very sharp senses. This power is seen when Bomb Voyage is about to blow open the vault of a skyrise building; Mr. Incredible is able to hear the faint beeping of the bomb from the other side of a thick wall.

Mr. Incredible does not exhibit superhuman intelligence, but his years of super-heroic experience allow him to rapidly formulate effective strategies to deal with opponents who cannot be bested by his strength alone.

Mr. Incredible does not appear to have any superhuman weaknesses, but is as vulnerable as anyone to hubris from the veneration of his "glory days" and in middle age he has a bad back.

In the Operation Kronos database, Mr. Incredible was given a threat rating of 9.1, the highest rating of any of the Supers.


Bob is exceptionally tall, with massive shoulders, chest, and arms, as befits his superhuman strength. He stands 6ft 6in (2 m) tall and weighs 350lbs (159 kg). But by the time his daughter Violet was in Junior high school, he had developed a bit of a beer belly, and was forced to undergo a strenuous diet and exercise regimen, after which he lost enough weight to resume his superheroics. He has blond hair, which has receded in his middle-age, and blue eyes.

Events after the movie

"Rise of The Underminer"

In this video game, Mr. Incredible tells the family to evacuate the city (along with the rest of the citizens of Metroville) after they are surrounded by The Underminer's robots. After destroying the robots, Mr. Incredible and Frozone follow The Underminer underground and fight more robots along the way. When they access The Underminer's main computer, they learn that he plans to use a machine called the Magnomizer to make the surface world feel like his home. In order to stop the Magnomizer, they have to go through the Sludge Station. After fighting more robots and hard obstacles, they destroy a machine blocking their path and apparently do the same thing to a wall which reveals a snowy underground part. They go through it and enter a room where they encounter the Magnomizer Guardian and her robot minions. Mr. Incredible throws enough objects to make the Guardian go into overdrive and destroy the room. He and Frozone escape in time, and take an elevator into the Magnomizer basement. They fight more robots and work their way up, but have to avoid falling from a trap staircase that they cross, and finally reach the top of the building, where the Magnomizer is. Mr. Incredible uses his strength to unscrew the bolts that hold the machine down while Frozone fends off the guard robots. After Mr. Incredible unscrews the last bolt, the building starts to self-destruct. Luckily, the heroes escape with a tank-like machine which falls all the way into a deep, dark pit. There, they fight more robots, whom the Crustodian, head of the Giant Robot Factory, had alerted of the heroes' presence in the Factory. Finally, the two reach the apparent main office, where the Crustodian is, and eventually defeat the Crustodian in battle, causing the Factory to begin crumbling apart. The Crustodian starts to leave, and Frozone tells Mr. Incredible that there is no time to destroy it (which Incredible is obsessed with doing). They leave once the Crustodian disappears and take an elevator that leads to an underwater tower. They figure out that they are in a power plant run by a robot named Dug, and that the water is breaking through the crumbling plant! The two reach Dug (after battling difficult robots), who tells them that he did not intend to have the robots attack them, and he agrees to help them save some non-human scientists who are stranded somewhere else in the plant. Along the way, the heroes protect Dug from rouge robots over which Dug has no command and also from lasers, lethal obstacles, and gaps. After all this, Dug opens the door to another elevator to allow Mr. Incredible and Frozone to rescue the scientists, but refuses to travel any further, leaving the heroes on their own. The heroes find the scientists and save them from being exterminated by rouge robots and lasers. After the heroes take these threats down, the scientists help them return to the surface and confront The Underminer, who shows off a giant machine. But first, the heroes must fight more robots that The Underminer has for them, and after the duo defeats the robots, The Underminer returns with another machine. The heroes damage the machine but The Underminer returns to the bigger machine while the rest of the robots fall at the hands of the heroic duo. The Underminer returns to attack the heroes, but they manage to best him. When The Underminer returns to the smaller machine, he has run out of reinforcements and the rest of the Incredible Family returns to watch as the duo defeats him, the small machine goes haywire, takes off into the air, and crashes onto the big machine, creating a large explosion which presumably kills The Underminer, and the heroes escape the blast.

"Holiday Heroes"

In the short comic, "The Incredibles in Holiday Heroes", he picks Mount Tiki Toki for a family vacation, but when the volcano on the island erupts, he, Helen (transformed into a water bowl), and Dash (who kicks at high speed) pick up some water from the ocean to save Lucius (who is desperately trying to freeze the lava) from being dehydrated by the extreme heat from the eruption. The episode forces the family to vacation somewhere else.

"A Magic Kingdom Adventure"

They choose Walt Disney World instead and are made Grand Marshalls for the Main Street Parade (much to the chagrin of both parents, as they wanted the family to maintain a low profile). While on a jungle cruise, Bob wrangles a crocodile to stop it from eating the boat, but Helen has to tell Bob that it was an animatronic, and later in the cruise, Bob spins the boat around to keep the local rain god from pouring down on the family. Later, in a runaway mine train ride, Bob grinds the train to a halt after hearing of a mine car full of volatile dynamite and body-slams the car to pieces, but Helen reminds him that the dynamite was part of the ride. Unfortunately, the ride is taken out of commission indefinitely. Bob is shocked when he learns that a robot copy of Syndrome (as Mr. Incredible, he had sacrificed his "very" expensive sports car in order to ensure that Syndrome learned the hard way that a cape is a ticket to death) has taken Mickey and Minnie Mouse hostage. It is he who warns the others that the "real" Syndrome has grown in power. After he contacts Frozone and they get their super-suits from E, they search half of the resort and Bob is forced to tamper with another attraction—a windmill in the "it's a small world" attraction—when Jack-Jack gets stuck on it, and "over-corrects it 'a little'" (Helen, Vi, and Dash: "A "little?") upon recovering him, making it (and the singing pitch) go too fast. In the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction, Bob frees some animatronic pirates from their prison by prying the cell door loose ("Bob, you've done it again!"), but the robot Syndrome later reprograms all of the pirates to attack the family. After the robot Syndrome is congealed, and Mickey and Minnie are liberated, the family heads for the Enchanted Tiki Room (Helen wanted to go there first, but this area is unpopular with the others)نه بابا.
