Forced into hiding because of a legal lawsuit (sued for damages while saving a life), the superheroes around the world
have been put under the witness protection program and given strict orders to never use their powers again. Living in the
land of suburbia, Mr. Incredible and his wife Elastigirl raise their family quietly, attempting to forget the old days and
keep a check on their children’s powers. When Mr. Incredible finds a chance to get back in the game, however, he finds

see that there is even more honor in raising a family for God. And that is "the greatest adventure ever".
