Fictional character biographyEdit
At the beginning of the movie, the other characters believe that he doesn't have any powers. It is only at the ending of the movie when they're displayed: distraught at being forcibly taken away from his mother, an infant Jack-Jack lashes out at a surprised Syndrome, who had kidnapped him, first by setting himself on fire, then becoming a lead weight, and finally a small devilish creature. Pixar also created the short film, Jack-Jack Attack that shows Jack-Jack discovering his powers while unleashing horror on his babysitter, Kari McKeen.
Jack-Jack normally communicates with subtle gestures and facial expressions. He usually speaks baby gibberish and can barely speak in human form—he only did so three times in the movie: first, when Lucius Best (Frozone) rang the doorbell to the Parrs' home (he says "Hello?"), the second, during his confrontation with Syndrome; he threatened in his many transformations (most notably his monster form) to kill the villain, all while throwing a tantrum he cries "Jack-Jack down!" the infant fought and scrambled down Syndrome's leg. And third, at the end when Helen rescued Jack-Jack after being dropped by Syndrome (he coos, "Mama!").
Jack-Jack has auburn hair (that stands out in a line and does not need hair gel) and blue eyes. He stands 2ft 6in (0.76 m) tall, and weighs 25lbs (11kg).
- Shape-shifting (Jack-Jack can change his form into fire, metal, or a monstrous demon-like, impish form. These are the three powers he uses in the film.)
- Silent teleportation (Jack-Jack instantly shifts from place to place.)
- Optic blasts
- Superhuman strength and agility
- Superhumanly acute senses
- Acidic saliva
- High intelligence/omnilingualism
His powers awakened during his time with the babysitter when she started playing Mozart music.
Rise of The UnderminerEdit
Helen, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack are told to evacuate Metroville after they are surrounded by The Underminer's robots, but the four return just in time to watch as Mr. Incredible and Frozone presumably kill The Underminer by crashing his machine onto a bigger machine, which creates an explosion.
In the short comic, The Incredibles in Holiday Heroes, Jack-Jack is briefly seen sleeping on Helen (acting as a hammock) when Mount Tiki Toki (where the family is vacationing) violently erupts. Violet is told to shield Jack-Jack from lava bombs while Bob, Helen, and Dash collect water to re-hydrate Lucius, who is being cooked by the extreme heat caused by the eruption. The episode forces the family to vacation someplace else.

Jack-Jack appears in the Disney on Ice production of A Magic Kingdom Adventure.
