The Incredibles....

Anyone notice their strong resemblance to Marvel Comics' "The Fantastic Four"?
Oh the powers are jumbled up and replaced here and there...but the mother's elasticity powers, the daughter's invisibility/force field abilities and dad's cartoonish strength all say FF to this ex-true believer.
of course no member of the family is a mishappened monster a'la boychick Ben Grimm...(although the father "Mr. Incredible" is bloated to the point of hilarity) nonetheless the template is vivid right down to the capeless tights.
I wonder if Stan Lee will sue?
And then maybe we can get him on the stand to explain just how much of the Fantastic Four was really the creation of the late Jack Kirby???
