Character Stats: Mr Incredible

"You know, I was right to idolise you. You truly are Mr Incredible!” – Syndrome


Bob Parr (a.k.a. Mr Incredible) is the superhero of superheroes. One of the iconic supers of the “old days”, Mr Incredible was admired by many around the world, and reknowned for his acts of heroism and bravery. At the time of the film (The Incredibles, Disney/Pixar), he spends his days helping customers navigate the murky world of insurance claims until he is fired for attacking his boss.

 Gifted with super-strength and constitution, Mr Incredible is capable of lifting anything from cars to trains, leaping from building to building, and taking blows that could disable or kill another man.

Costume (with homing device)


I love The Incredibles. It’s kind of what got me into the superhero groove I’m in. Since I started reading about M&M, I figured I could practice creating a few characters and get used to the system by statting out some of the characters from The Incredibles.

This interpretation of Mr Incredible was helped a lot by reading the Powerhouse archetype, but also has some of my own take on it.

I figure Mr Incredible has to have very high Str and Con (hence, 30 in each, some natural, some power-based). He also has super-strength, allowing him to lift those cars, trains, massive head statues, and so on (is there anything he can’t lift?).

I gave him a toughnes/defense trade-off, because while he’s not that hard to hit, he’s very tough to take down and damage.

I gave him ranks in Bluff, and the Distract (bluff) feat to represent his ability to get villains “monologuing”.

Mr Incredible is very hard hitting, with a high strength, attack focus, power attack, stunning attack, and 3 ranks in improved critical.


Total PP = 149 (I think/hope)


Look forward to more Incredibles characters, when I get time.

P.S. The Incredibles, Mr Incredible, pictures, logos, symbols, colours, concepts, ideas, and so on, are the exclusive rights of Disney/Pixar/Dark Horse comics, and noone else.
