Speaking of intriguing superpower combinations, it’s impossible to discuss Incredibles 2 without bringing up Jack-Jack. The baby’s unpredictable array of out-of-control abilities provides many of the movie’s most memorable scenes, from his fight with a trash-thieving raccoon to his integral role in the final battle. When Bob Parr brings his infant son to Edna Mode in search of a solution to his overactive tendencies, E reminds him that many supers manifest multiple powers early in life before growing into their defining characteristics.
Jack-Jack, however, has many more powers than usual for his age, and shows no sign of settling into any one of them by the story’s end. He remains blessed with laser vision, flammability, multiplicity, dimension-hopping, and a rage-triggered beast mode. His development will surely serve as one of the Parr family’s greatest challenges going forward, and might even serve as fodder for potential future Incredibles sequels – writer/director Brad Bird has hinted that the “unexploded bomb” represented by Jack-Jack remains the greatest source of untapped potential for his super universe.
