While researching for my forthcoming blog on the Pixar film, The Incredibles, I was reminded of this particular sequence with the scene-stealing Edna Mode.
Though hilarious, this scene also highlights the importance of the super-suit in regard to both image and safety. A commanding and powerful looking suit that highlights the musculature of the hero may be important, but, as Edna Mode points out, safety first. This scene is satirical in nature, as it is clearly poking fun at the old style and impracticality of superhero garb.
Stay tuned for more “Incredible” filled blogs soon.
