In the past years, the world's superheroes have been forced to hide their superpowers and blend in as normal civilians. These include the Parr Family, Bob and Helen, both former supers and their kids, Violet and Dashiel(Dash), and toddler Jack-Jack. After losing his job, Bob gets a call to destroy a secret robot discovered by a research group. He later discovers that this is a plan by Syndrome, a supervillan and former fan of his that is mad for having shunned him and wants to kill the family before taking over the world.
