And here is the smoking gun. Elastigirl went into retirement November 13th, 1955. Between that and the cape accidents in ‘57 and ‘58 as mentioned in the No Capes montage, that puts the Super Ban around there. The “present day” action of the Incredibles film, which is 15 years later, is around 1970.
The Incredibles is a period superhero story like Watchmen or The New Frontier.
thank god I finally know the year.
I always knew it wasn’t present day but I wasn’t sure if it was the mid 60s or early 70s
I shoulda known it was the 70’s because of their furniture.

STORY TIME KIDS. Lucas Grabeel who played Ryan Evans was 100% for making Ryan canonically gay, and spoke to Kenny Ortega at length to get Ryan to at least hold hands with a male student in the final scene. Grabeel is straight but thought it was so important for Disney viewers to see gay characters on TV, knowing that the HSM3 viewership was age 11+, when kids may start thinking about who they’re attracted to a bit more. basically Disney gave Lucas a flat out no and as a response wrote in Ryan’s relationship with Kelsi last minute (as speculation was already flying around about Kelsi being a lesbian). so even though disney screwed them over ortega told grabeel that he could do whatever he liked in the blooper reel and they’d include it in the DVD. hence above.
I reblog this every time its on my dashboard and I’m not even approaching embarrassed.
