Metroville is a fictional city in the United States, although its exact location is the Disney Pixar Map. It is home to the Parr family and other characters of the Disney/Pixar The Incredibles franchise.
Metroville is a suburban town, where the Parr family lives, and Dash and Violet attend school. It also has a central downtown area where Bob works, Lucius and Honey live, and the final battle of the film occurs. Metroville was home to many superheroes before they were forced into retirement by the government to pretect their identities; now the town is mostly a quiet suburb. Metroville is also home to two of the world's supervillains. It's location is evidenced to be in the state of Illinois given Edna Mode's homing device zoomed in on the Map.
