    So basically everything before 9:40 is useless yup good ol film theory for you

    • SegaMaster172 says:

      No, the first half was to state what would happened if you tried to sue a superhero by today’s rules. You’d have an impossible time trying to sue a superhero.

      However, because the hero lawsuits happened in 1947 of the Incredibles, it could’ve realistically happened because of the different laws back then.

      Overall, successfully suing a superhero:
      Could it have happened? Yes, in the past.

      Could it happen nowadays? No, virtually impossible.

    • TheRezro says:

      For clarity “Supers” as they are in the movie, not in general.

    • RoughShadow says:

      Well, you learned about the Good-Smaritan-Law, why it’s good, what it means, the Sovereign-Law, the Federal Tort Claims Act, that it’s almost impossible to sue an American government, with real-life examples for all of these cases…
      It may have been useless for the theory itself, but at the very least the Good-Samaritan-Law is a good thing to keep in mind. And it’s nice trivia.

  11. Mr Pinchers says:

    10:55 The Incredibles takes place in the 60’s so they where still illegal in the movie since none of the 3 laws you mentioned existed. In the first movie it’s more about reliving the glory days and less about becoming legal again. The second movie is more about how they can become legal again and their journey to it.(The second movie continues right where the first ends so still the 60’s)

    • Jason Costa says:

      Mr Pinchers well he’s talking about when the supers were sued which took place before the events of the movie so what you said it completely unrelated
