We've been waiting for The Incredibles 2 for what seems like forever, though we can't complain because Pixar has been known to take quite some time to create sequels (and rightfully so). Toy Story had a wait of four years, Cars had a wait of five years, Monsters Inc. had a wait of 12 years, and Finding Nemo had a wait of 13 years. Now, after a wait of 14 years, The Incredibles 2 release date is almost here and we couldn't be more excited to see the Parr family hit the silver screen again. If you're looking to get more hyped up, here's a clip from the upcoming film! To celebrate the release of The Incredibles 2, we thought it'd be fun to take characters from the upcoming film and re-imagine them in the different ages of comics. If you're unfamiliar with these "ages", don't worry, we'll help you out as we go on. So if you're ready to go on an adventure through the past, keep scrolling!
