If this is the impression that you're getting, then I must be wording things horribly. It is most definitely not my intent to say 'look at what they discuss'. What I have been saying is that the characters themselves view the law as justification for their actions.
As was I. I would make the case for Conceiving, though I can see Being as a possibility. (Though, that I can see Being as a possibility is, I think, a remnant of the family story having the upper-right concerns.)
For both @Greg and @Lakis:
The story that I most immediately pick up on is this: The PR for supers is down the toilet, and thus, it leads to the argument between what supers should or should not be doing. Trying to fix the PR is what leads to Winston calling the supers. It leads to Helen working to save trains, capture Screenslaver, or rescue ambassadors. It leads to Winston throwing parties and trying to get signatures. The attempted change in this PR, which is very much a manipulation, leads to Evelyn's attempts at crashing the train, attacking the ambassador, and destroying the ship. In other words, manipulation leads to the problems in the movie.
Immediately, your response to this argument is always, but what is the source of the PR problems? In the story that I suspect most everyone is seeing, the law is not shown as a source of the PR problems. It is, instead, shown as character justification for their manipulations. In this story, you could remove the law, and you would still have the PR problems leading to similar activities.
However, you can, as you have done, just as easily flip it on it's head and say that the law is the reason for the manipulations. That, if it weren't for that law, then the machinations of Winston or Evelyn wouldn't exist, and Helen wouldn't be out their trying to prove that supers are able to save people and cities without damages. I think, though, that most people would say that sounds like one of the characters of the movie talking. (In other words, a subjective view.)
And honestly, it seems like a chicken-egg scenario:
- Is it the illegal activities that lead to the machinations? (Physics)
- Is it the machinations that lead to the illegal activities? (Psychology)
There are scenes throughout the movie that claim the answer is "Yes" for (1).
There are scenes throughout the movie that claim the answer is "Yes" for (2).
When you add in the family story (and I am convinced that the family story is complete), where the OS is in Physics, most would get this feel that the full movie RS would be in Physics. From this, the story most people are likely to pick up on is a Psychology story.
Well, thank you for reading my thoughts, dude!
For all those who do wish to continue an analysis:
There are shades of a relationship there. I briefly thought of trying this, but never did. Another thing that might be possible is that Elastigirl is an Influence Character, while Helen is a Main Character, (one player, two characters), which I haven't tried, yet.
I think, though, that if I weren't trying to make a case for one way or the other, than all I would remember from this movie is that the message comes out to saying something like "Be yourself, and let others deal with their own problems," which is not a Narrative First style argument, but a plain old blurb.
