Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s Quest to Become America’s Favorite Superheroes

Unpacking Kimye’s obsession, pre- and post-divorce, with Disney, “The Incredibles,” the nuclear family, and lycra.

n 2019, after years of strategically avoiding “Keeping Up with the Kardashians”—the E! reality series starring his wife, Kim Kardashian—Kanye West appeared in one of the show’s confessionals.

“Part of the reason why I even considered doing this is because of the movie ‘The Incredibles,’ ” West tells the camera, referring to the 2004 Pixar film about a family of superheroes.

 he continues. “The superheroes are giving interviews.  The wife got a big butt, and I just see our life becoming more and more and more like ‘The Incredibles’ until we can finally fly.”

In the past few weeks, West and Kardashian have also shed their romantic rebounds.

Kardashian, with less than a month to go before the première of her show’s second season, recently posted a photo of herself, alone at the beach, wearing a T-shirt that says “The Incredibles.” ♦
