Syndrome, a.k.a. Buddy Pine, is another example of the darker side to Pixar’s stories of whimsy and wonder. Not exactly a gritty reboot or retelling of the events of The Incredibles, I, Syndrome would be focused on Buddy’s uphill battle through his younger years. Struggling through being an outsider with a very intelligent mindset, this side story could show Mr. Pine’s attempts to fit in and change the world, with the slow creeping dread of his villainous turn hanging over every frame. Leading up to his purge of the Supers in the world of The Incredibles series, I, Syndrome would play like a Star Wars prequel, only with much more planning and deeper ties to The Omen.
