I like to think of it more as their powers represent their personality/role…
All of the incredibles represent a disorder:
Violet - anxiety
Dash - ADHD
Mr Incredible - too strong
Mother Incredible - ???
Baby - exploding child
-Mr. Incredible is the head of the household, so he needs to be strong to support everyone. (Even if that means working a lousy job)
-Elastigirl is Mom, and needs to be flexible in every aspect of the word. She’s a Mom, superhero, pilot, and even has a wedding to plan before the movie is over.
-Violet just wants to be invisible. (Classic teenager stereotype). Her dark clothing and hair complement this personality, until we see her stronger side come out when she gets the red suit, and her hair gets brushed back behind her ear.
-Dash still has all of his childhood energy, so he’s unstoppable. Like most kids, he often rushes head first into trouble more often than anything else, but chances are good he’ll learn from his mistakes.
-Jack Jack…his power is unpredictable. Which is weird because babies are usually on a very concise schedule, right? Ha! Excited to see more of him in the sequel…
bonus: Frozone - while he’s not a member of the Incredibles family, when he’s out of his suit, he has a very “chill” demeanor to him. An ideal night is just bowling or dinner with his wife…when she’s not hiding things from him if course.
