In the Incredibles films, it seems that the villains all rely entirely on technology, while the heroes (while they can use it) have innate powers.
We don't have as many examples as Marvel, but I think there's enough at this point to see a pattern.
Screenslaver. Uses brainwashing transmissions and glasses that she created.
The Underminer. Uses a drill machine and bionic limb enhancements.
Mirage. Uses her technological and computer skills.
Syndrome. Uses various kinds of technology; technology is heavily related to his reason for villainy.
Bomb Voyage. Uses bombs. It's not totally clear that he lacks powers.
By contrast, all the heroes that I recall seem to have innate powers, i.e. tied to their physical or metaphysical person, and probably heritable. Certainly this is true of Frozone, the Parr family, and seemingly all the heroes in the new film...
..who only act villainous because of Screenslaver.
This is particularly interesting because in the Marvel and DC inspiration, the top villains who fight powered people usually have their own powers: Doomsday, Darkseid, Hela, Zod, Loki, Magneto, and so forth. (Though there are exceptions: Lex Luthor, say). The Fantastic Four, the most direct inspiration, are known for fighting Dr. Doom, a powered individual.
But the Incredibles is different.
Why is this? Has there been any comment on it?
