* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': Being an AffectionateParody to superhero movies in general it shouldn't be a surprise that it has a whole lot of superhero expies.
** The family is very nearly the ComicBook/FantasticFour. Even their costumes and name (Fantastic/Incredible) are similar: Mr. Incredible is The Thing; Elastigirl is Mr. Fantastic, Violet is the Invisible Woman; and Dash's HotBlooded personality recalls the Human Torch, and his powers are based on Franchise/TheFlash. Jack-Jack, who is shown to have highly variable superpowers at the end of the movie, is based on Franklin Richards, the young son of Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Woman who has ill-defined but incredibly vast powers.
** Syndrome, is a somewhat more rotund Doctor Doom, a villain whose primary superpowers are simply being so good at super-technology that his super-suit is more powerful than the family combined.
** Frozone is basically Iceman from the ''ComicBook/XMen'' comics as played by Creator/SamuelLJackson. They even have the same way of getting from place to place: creating ramps of ice to skate everywhere.
** In a more extreme example, Gazerbeam and The Underminer basically are Comicbook/{{Cyclops}} and the [[MoleMen Mole Man]], an enemy of the ComicBook/FantasticFour, in all but name. The DVD special features on the minor heroes in the movie even parodies Cyclops's infamously bland personality by having Gazerbeam be an incredibly dull person.
