Elastigirl, also known as Helen Parr, is a superheroine, the wife of Mr. Incredible and mother of their three children VioletDash, and Jack-Jack. She is the deuteragonist of the Pixar film, "The Incredibles".

On merchandising she was renamed as Mrs. Incredible. This was due to the fact that the name Elasti-Girl was actually owned by DC Comics, where Elastigirl was the name of a member of The Doom Patrol, Rita Farr, the adoptive mother of Beast Boy.

Elastigirl is voiced by Holly Hunter.


Where Elastigirl got her powers and why she chose to fight crime remains a mystery.


The early years of Helen Parr or how she received her powers is largely unknown save that she had a successful career as the superheroine Elastigirl. At somepoint, she met the superhero Mr. Incredible and the two fell in love. They married and though it looked like the two were going to spend their marriage fighting crime, a law was passed that dissuaded most superheroes from crime-fighting. The young couple decided to live as normal people, parenting two children who also had superpowers, which they forbade them from using in public.  However, she also became aware that her husband was still crime fighting occasional, which caused some tension between the two, due to the risk to their family's lifestyle.

When Helen noticed that Bob was suddenly very happy about a new job, she was happy for him. However, Bob's repeated disappearances and busy schedule made her worry that something else was going on.


Elastigirl is a very competent, caring, and serious-minded woman. She is a good parent, but has irritable tendencies (though usually for good reason). She is usually the one who keeps her rowdy family together, and is very loyal to her loved ones.


Able to extend her body to any length
