So you didn’t enjoy the movie. That’s fine. But you don’t need to go to such an extent to rationalize your preferences.
The reason Mr. Incredible becomes a so-called “normal” person is because the government prevents him from doing what he’s able and wants to do. You’re a scientist. Imagine the government says, “No, you can’t be a scientist, you have to do something you’re totally unsuited for.” It’s unlikely you’ll do well.
He works for a company that, to say the least, does not value customer service. You could say that Mr. Incredible is working in his company’s best interests by showing some warmth and compassion to their customers. But warmth and compassion is quite distinct from “selfless altruism.” I actually think Mr. Incredible’s company is exploitative and deserves to fail. But portraying a company in that light does not make The Incredibles “anti-capitalistic.” As I’ve said, sometimes businessmen and scientists are the bad guys.
Okay, so you have a problem with the idea of innate superpowers. The Incredibles is a work of fiction. As such we are often called to take, as metaphysically given, aspects of fiction that are not consistent with reality for the purposes of the presentation. In The Incredibles, super-power is one such aspect. So supers can survive and flourish through the instinctual use of their powers. Even the baby. Fine. With a little imagination, we can accept that, knowing that super powers don’t exist in the Real World. And it’s not hard to connect the dots between super-powers and natural ability, like being naturally athletic, naturally intelligent or naturally charismatic. People are born with varying degrees of natural ability. (David’s right on with the Tiger Woods analogy.)
It’s interesting that you leap so quickly to judge Mr. Incredible’s kind-heartedness as “altruism”, but you excuse Syndrome’s wish to “make every normal person into a superhero.” As I’ve said, it’s clear that Syndrome’s goal isn’t to create value or make money, but to destroy value. (“Everyone will be super, which means no-one will be.”) He’s a twisted little bastard, resentful that he wasn’t born with superpowers, so decides that no-one should have superpowers. He’s the ultimate egalitarian - he wants to make everyone equal, not out of good-intentioned altruism, but out of spite.
Kelley’s wrong, there’s no implication that invention is equated with “envy-driven hatred.” As viewers, we have insight into Syndrome’s motivations, and we know that he is an envious, hateful character, who merely uses invention as a tool. Because Ellsworth Toohey uses a newspaper as his tool, do we say The Fountainhead is anti-print media? The film, properly, makes no statement on the intrinsic value of invention. Indeed, the sympathetic Edna Mode (also an inventor) is the perfect counterpoint. Invention and technology can be used for either good or evil, as we see in Atlas Shrugged and as we see throughout history.
The Incredibles is probably not an “Objectivist film.” But, besides The Fountainhead, I struggle to think of one that is. But there is a continuum of points between an “Objectivist film” and an “anti-Objectivist film,” and I would suggest that The Incredibles sits somewhere near “Objectivist-friendly.” (But it is really unnecessary to go through such an evaluation.)
Your Green Party/marijuana policy equivocation is false, because Objectivists would disagree with 95% of the Green Party’s policies. The Incredibles is not 95% disagreeable, your hang-up that the villain happens to be wealthy and an inventor notwithstanding.
You ask, “So how does this film endorse that view?” [The view that the philosophy of objectivism does not judge us by our innate abilities, but to the extent to which we can apply and develop what we are given.] As I’ve said before, if one does nothing with their natural abilities, they cannot be considered a success. But despite instruction by the authorities not to use their natural abilities, the Incredibles go ahead anyway and do great things, like preventing disasters and thwarting evil. We’re not judging the supers on the basis of their great powers, but by their application of them. They’re heroic because they’re able and they do.
