Incredibles: Why Edna Mode's No Capes Rule Is Sadder Than You Realize

Reading now: 979

An iconic part of Pixar’s The Incredibles was Edna Mode’s explanation that she does not design super suits with capes, but a theory from Tumblr has suggested that her reason may have been much sadder than it first appeared.

Voiced by The Incredibles director, Brad Bird, Edna swiftly became a fan favorite thanks to her delightfully eccentric manner and genius eye for fashion design.

More than this, she was magnificently quotable. Her mantras of, “Luck favors the prepared,” “I never look back, darling! It distracts from the now,” and, of course, “No capes!” became hugely popular despite her relatively limited screen time.

The last of these quotes came during a discussion with Robert «Bob» Parr/Mr. Incredible (voiced by Craig T. Nelson), about the possibility of her designing him a new suit.
