That was the first movie I TRIED to take my then 3 year old son to. It didn't work out so well.

We'll see the sequel this summer and he'll probably be driving us there.

Long time comin'

It's on topic since many have said it's the best film version of the Fantastic Four. I saw the Black Panther movie last night. That's the way I want a Fantastic Four movie be be. Maybe we'll get it one day. You can have the silly cartoon version but I want something much better than that.

Is OT short for on topic or off topic? I've always used it to mean off topic but you're using it as on topic.

You're right. I got it mixed up. It's fine to discuss the Incredibles here when you use it for comparison.

There's a lot to like about The Incredibles from an FF fan perspective. It owes the FF a huge debt, but I have to admit, that everything from the soundtrack to the teamwork in these clips shows that the idea of a Superhero family - when done correctly - can absolutely work.

Yes and I think that the Incredibles also managed to include the Silver Age good vibes that are needed to appreciate the FF characters.

The FF are heroes of the Space Age, positive people who believe that the future will get better. Even when John Byrne was their writer & penciller in the 1980s, the book was a clear homage to the period of Lee & Kirby.

The first Incredibles movie was a love letter dedicated to the Golden & Silver Ages of comics. In the film, the superheroes were created during the Golden Age and, thanks to the Incredibles family, were reactivated at the beginning of the Silver Age, after the superheroes had been outlawed as criminal vigilantes during the 1950s.
