|Appeared in:||The Incredibles|
Simon J. Paladino alias, Gazerbeam is a superhero from The Incredibles whose powers allow him to generate energy blasts from his eyes, assuming that he concentrates on the target; the helmet he wears allows him to control his blasts (like Cyclops from X-Men). Gazerbeam was originally a member of the superhero team the Phantasmics, but rivalry with Everseer led to Gazerbeam's dismissal. After Dynaguy's death, Gazerbeam replaced him as leader of the Thrilling Three. He is visible as one of the guests at Mr. Incredible and Elastigirl's wedding.
After being forced into hiding, Gazerbeam used his civilian identity to campaign to get the ban on Supers repealed. Frozone commented that he "had trouble adjusting to civilian life." He was one of several supers who were recruited to battle an Omnidroid on Nomanisan Island as part of the droid's battle education. He destroyed the Omnidroid 04, then was bested by the Omnidroid 05.
He was killed by the 05, but not before learning about Operation Kronos. Though the film does not show how, he learned the password for Syndrome's database, "Kronos," and used his powers to write it on the wall of a cave before he died. Mr. Incredible later found both Gazerbeam's skeleton and the message, and was able to avoid being detected and killed by hiding behind Gazerbeam's bones. Although he lost his life, Gazerbeam played an important part in helping the Incredible family foil Syndrome for good.
