Frozone Shrugged

I'm listening to Atlas Shrugged right now (well, for the past few weeks, really. its a *really* long unabridged work. we're talking dozens of hours).
So this article was pretty interesting to me. I'm finding AS pretty intriguing (if repetetive) and I happen to really like (and own a copy of) The Incredibles.

Far more intriguing, however, are the movie's points of view. Balking at attending his son's 'graduation' (from fourth to fifth grade), the mothballed Bob lets it all hang out: 'They're constantly finding ways to celebrate mediocrity, while someone who's truly exceptional....' When he later balances a globe-shaped robot on his shoulders, should we be thinking Atlas Shrugged?
