Psycwave's NSA file

"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.

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. 

Psycwave was a founding member of the Phantasmics alongside Everseer, Macroburst, Plasmabolt and, at one point, Gazerbeam.

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. 

She was one of the Supers targeted by Syndrome for Operation Kronos. She was killed by the Omnidroid v.X1 during its training sessions. 


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.
