The Incredibles in The Gladiator Edit

Eduardo Caruso carried The Incredibles on his minicomputer. While in an alternate in which the Soviet Union won the Cold War, he showed it to Annarita Crosetti, who'd never seen anything like it. Caruso assured her that the film was rather primitive, having been made over 90 years prior.

The film gave Annarita some insight into the middle-class existence of Caruso's home timeline. It also helped spark a debate between the two about which world had more to offer.[1]
