    I’m guessing people are calling The X’s a rip-off of The Incredibles because The X’s some what resembles the Incredibles. But neither show has any original characters. An over-weight middle age man, a protective mother, a Goth/Punk teenager, and a loud kid aren’t original characters to begin with.

    The plots aren’t anything alike. In The Incredibles the father can’t stop helping people who need it, the mother just wants to have a normal life, the daughter has problems fitting in at school and it’s bothering her, and the son wants to try out for sports but can’t because his mother thinks it will be too tempting for him to use his powers to cheat.

    In the X’s the kids don’t want to fit in at school, the son has never cared about sports, and the parents enjoy their work.

    The characters in the two shows don’t even have the same abilities; the Incredibles are super-heroes, while the X’s are spies.

    It's kinda like it but it's not a rip-off. You can tell that it's not Rip-off cause where is the Jak-Jak nor Frozon copy? None. If it was a rip of they would have been superheros and Nick would have called it The Supers.

    They're not copying any other superhero just because they have simliar powers.
