- "I never really used it [her superpower] to harm people, except for all those girls I made the guys break up with cause I wanted to date them. Kinda freaky, actually."
- —Psycwave on her NSA file
Psycwave is a character in The Incredibles.
Psycwave discovered her psychic abilities in high school, and utilised these newfound powers for personal gain—namely, to manipulate the star quarterback into asking her to homecoming and break up with his girlfriend.
Her secret identity was that of a psychologist who worked with Everseer, though she became frustrated with the work and quit due to her annoyance at clients failing to solve their own problems.
Her NSA file lists her superpowers as mental force wave generation, temporary mental paralysis (for up to 30 seconds) and the ability to possess the bodies of others. Her file on the Operation Kronos database adds more, listing psychic foresight, thought control, and telekinesis. A weakness to her ability was that her body was left defenseless while she possessed another person. The Operation Kronos database assigned her a threat rating of 1.6, the lowest rating of the Supers displayed.
Psycwave was noted for occasional paranoid tendencies, and a propensity for psychology. It is implied that she frequently used her powers for selfish gain, primarily by manipulating men into breaking up with their girlfriends so she could date them.
