What enables the Incredible family to succeed is not that they are superhuman but that they are humane; that they love, support, and protect one another. Tic wiped his hand on his leg, as he did every time he cleared his poker of trash. In support of this, I point to the many fantasy works in which undistinguished protagonists turn out to have special and valuable powers, and to the many more in which the boundary between good and evil is so sharp you can cut yourself on it (and, still more surprisingly, there are no disputes about where it lies).
