Helen Parr, aka Elastigirl, can stretch any part of her body up to 100’ (30 m) and can be 1 mm thin. She can also reshape her body in a variety of ways. In the movie she becomes a parachute and a rubber boat, and has used her arms for swings and a slingshot. The Operations Kronos Database assigned her a threat rating of 6.2. She is a dedicated spouse and mother, and is frustrated with her husband's continuing dreams of glory. Helen is also an experienced jet pilot (coming from having a close friend who flew her around the world when she was a Super). Her sharp wit and superb espionage skills, as well as her experience as a superhero, make her an excellent tactician and leader.
Her powers are similar to those of Mister Fantastic and Plastic Man. Her Edna Mode-designed super suit is designed to stretch as far as she can (without injuring herself) and still retain its shape. It is virtually indestructible and can stand up to extreme heat or cold, yet it breathes like Egyptian cotton.
The name "Elasti-Girl" also belongs to a DC Comics superhero, prompting outside media (such as merchandise and comics) to refer to Helen as Mrs. Incredible.
