Buddy Pine/"Syndrome" was a hero.:
Respect the Red Right HandThe entire plot of The Incredibles in the present day was a Xanatos Gambit by Syndrome to show the world that superheroes were still needed, by creating a super-threat and calling the Incredibles into action. The "dead" heroes were paid off by Syndrome to fake their deaths. Hey, it's not more convoluted than the Joker's plan in The Dark Knight. Discuss.
Reverse the CurseHeroes don't blow up planes with children on board. Unless the children are seriously fucking evil.
Shop OwnerWhich Kind of Hero? Byronic Heroes do that for lunch.
We Do Not SowWell, isn't the plot of The Incredibles a family-friendly version of Watchmen?
"Wait, it's IV. Of course they are. They'd make IV for Dreamcast." - Enlong, on yet another FFIV remake
Reverse the CurseRephrasing that: heroes don't blow up planes specifically to kill children.
Respect the Red Right Hand^ He didn't. He planned for them to stow away, and he planned for the family to escape. It was all according to plan. Again, no more complex nor reliant on complete coincidence than The Joker's plan in The Dark Knight. And hero doesn't necessarily mean sane.

Reverse the CurseSo he invented a mind-control ray? 'Cause he's clearly not well-versed enough in human interractions to know Mirage'd be pissed he was going to let her get crushed (don't tell me he planned for that, he had the 'what the hell did I just miss' expression on his face when she snapped at him, and she'd already walked away by that point, so it wasn't for her benefit). And if he planned for them all to leave, wouldn't he have had one of his henchmen snatch Jack-Jack earlier? And where did Gazerbeam's skeleton come from?

Bibliophile.But heroes never die in Disney films! Either Syndrome was a villain, or he didn't die.
I design worlds. Or, I hope to.Stratogale died the same way... although, they never said she died... And I have seen a video where a guy meets the same fate and survives.
Don't fear the Reaper. Make him fear you.
Bibliophile.Maybe the "Heroes never die in Disney Films" only applies to main characters? Or maybe I was really, really stupid when I was younger.

Feels Good, ManAlso Pixar.
A Yoshi. Y'know, on fireNah, they die in Pixar. Remember Coral? Or Ellie? Not to mention, the way half the old Toy Story cast was sold in 3 wasn't much better.
... Which is when I was banned from Arkham Asylum. Any questions?
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
