Frozone and Iceman

The Incredibles is the latest Pixar film slated to have a sequel.  The first film is such a gem, I hope that great care is taken with the second installment, so as to enhance the franchise, rather than tarnish it.  I have faith in the studio, though - their sequels for Toy Story and Monsters Inc. were a lot of fun for me.  The only one that I did not care for was Cars 2. I hope that the new film will have allowed the family to grow, so that we can see where they are a few years after the events of the first movie.  A larger role for Frozone would be welcome as well, he was cool to watch but didn't have much screen time the first time around.

Random anecdote: At Rose City Comic Con 2013 there was a cosplayer dressed up as Frozone. He looked just like the character had stepped off the screen and into the Portland Convention Center -- almost literally, I kid you not. He even had the voice down.

And, just as NBC finally let us glimpse Mrs. Columbo (a pre-STAR TREK: VOYAGER Kate Mulgrew), maybe we'll finally see Frozone's wife.

Actually just about everyone -- including Ms. Mulgrew, as well as Columbo creators Levinson & Link -- have disavowed "Mrs. Columbo" as a misguided attempt. L&L would have preferred Maureen Stapleton in the role; and, really, the show wasn't that good, other than Kate's performance.

We did get a look at Mrs. Columbo's picture in one of the latter-day Columbo movies, though.

As for Frozone's wife, I'd just as soon she stayed an off-camera entity. Not that I'm not curious or interested, but it's a great running gag to have her always off-screen, like Carlton the Doorman.

Is it my imagination? Or, does your Iceman resemble Norrin Radd from FF: RISE OF THE SILVER SURFER?

He's definitely striking a similar pose.
