And here is the smoking gun. Elastigirl went into retirement November 13th, 1955. Between that and the cape accidents in ‘57 and ‘58 as mentioned in the No Capes montage, that puts the Super Ban around there. The “present day” action of the Incredibles film, which is 15 years later, is around 1970.
The Incredibles is a period superhero story like Watchmen or The New Frontier.
thank god I finally know the year.
I always knew it wasn’t present day but I wasn’t sure if it was the mid 60s or early 70s
I shoulda known it was the 70’s because of their furniture.
Wait a minute, I was watching this for the millionth time the other day and I was just commenting on the fact that all the cars look really old, and NOW I KNOW WHY, OH MY GOD?
YES I KNEW IT
In one of the scenes you can see Frozone has a bottle of “Karate” cologne in his apartment, which was a popular macho scent from the 70s.
