Villain Overview

The Screenslaver interrupts this program for an important announcement. Don't bother watching the rest. Elastigirl doesn't save the day; she only postpones her defeat. And while she postpones her defeat, you eat chips and watch her invert problems that you are too lazy to deal with. Superheroes are part of your brainless desire to replace true experience with simulation. You don't talk, you watch talk shows. You don't play games, you watch game shows. Travel, relationships, risk; every meaningful experience must be packaged and delivered to you to watch at a distance so that you can remain ever-sheltered, ever-passive, ever-ravenous consumers who can't free themselves to rise from their couches, break a sweat, and participate in life. You want superheroes to protect you, and make yourselves ever more powerless in the process. While you tell yourselves you're being "looked after". That your interests are being served and your rights are being upheld. So that the system can keep stealing from you, smiling at you all the while. Go ahead, send your supers to stop me. Grab your snacks, watch your screens, and see what happens. You are no longer in control. I am.
~ The Screenslaver's most famous speech.
You are good.
~ Evelyn revealing that she is the real Screenslaver.

Evelyn Deavor, also better known by her supervillain name the Screenslaver, is the main antagonist of Pixar's 20th full-length animated feature film Incredibles 2.

She is the sister of Winston Deavor, the former co-CEO of DevTech, and Elastigirl's former friend-turned-arch-nemesis, who is bent on destroying the reputation of supers and preventing them from becoming legal again.

Evelyn herself was voiced by Catherine Keener, who also played Missy Armitage in Get Out, whereas the brainwashed pizza man under the false alias Screenslaver was voiced by Bill Wise, who also voiced Richard Guyot in Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor.


Ah shucks, I'm just the genius behind the genius.
~ A quote said by Evelyn Deavor hinting at her being the villain.

Evelyn appears to be loyal, kindhearted and caring and is eager to help others. She is also shown to be a brilliant and intelligent character. However, she is often laid-back, as she seems unworried of anything. She encourages her brother to keep on making heroes protect the world at whatever cost. However, despite being helpful, she also seems to be really strict and always takes things really seriously.

It would later turn out to be all a fabric of her true nature: a vengeful, cunning, hateful, deceitful, mean-spirited, cold-hearted and ruthless person who would do anything to rid the world of all things super (and to avenge the deaths of her parents) as she sees them as making people weak and unable to save themselves from other threats.

What sets her apart from Syndrome, the main antagonist of the first Incredibles film, is her secretive nature, as she manages to hide her true intentions for the majority of the movie. She's also a lot less evil than Syndrome, as she only wants to ban supers rather than just kill them off. Out of the two villains, it's Evelyn who comes closer to succeeding. She also speaks in a very sarcastic tone most of the time. She's also a very skilled manipulator and actor, able to pull off this innocent act for a good majority of the movie and trick others very easily. Like Syndrome, she has above average intelligence and is able to invent a lot of advanced technologies, such as the Hypno-goggles, which are a pair of goggles with hypnotic screens built into them, which Evelyn uses to brainwash citizens and superheroes. Both Syndrome and Evelyn developed a hatred towards superheroes due to a traumatic experience and both turned into supervillains who will go to great lengths to achieve their goals. Evelyn also seems to be a bit of an introvert and is much more quiet and reserved than her brother, Winston, who is social and outgoing. Evelyn is also shown to be cruel and sadistic, as shown when she showed little concern and maybe even amusement when Elastigirl collapsed from hypoxia, as well as pettiness as she remorselessly framed an innocent pizza delivery guy to be her decoy because he was surly and for presumably delivering cold pizza. Evelyn's hatred for superheroes turned her into a destructive supervillain who shows no limits in who she's willing to put in danger.

Despite this, Evelyn does have redeeming qualities, such as her caring about her parents and brother, but crosses the line into becoming a villain by using extreme methods to turn the public against supers by putting innocent people in danger, framing a pizza delivery guy as a patsy and displaying a callous disregard for the lives she endangered.



Evelyn and her brother Winston were born the children of Mr. Deavor, the CEO of a small media company named DevTech, and an avid fan and supporter of superheroes, who even possessed two direct lines to the heroes Gazerbeam and Fironic. One night, burglars broke into the Deavor home. Instead of hiding in the safe room with his wife, Mr. Deavor attempted to call Gazerbeam and Fironic for help.

Unfortunately, this was after the Super Relocation Act was passed, and therefore, there was no response, resulting in the burglars shooting and killing him. Not long afterwards, Evelyn and Winston's mother would die of heartbreak as a result.

Becoming a Villain

With both of their parents deceased, Winston and Evelyn inherited DevTech, in Chicago and both using their unique skills to build the company into the biggest electronics and media firm in the world — the tech-savvy Evelyn invented and created innovative products, while Winston would use his natural charisma and people skills to sell them to the masses. Winston also inherited his father's firm love of superheroes as well, believing his father could have been saved had they not been abolished and dreamed of one day of abolishing the Relocation Act.

Evelyn, on the other hand, saw her father's murder from a different perspective; instead of believing her parents could've been saved had supers been around, she saw that her father only died because of him being too dependent on them to save the day, instead of taking the initiative to save himself by hiding in the safe room.

Perceiving supers to be a danger to society by prompting people to be lazy and expect others to solve their problems, she developed a secret hatred of them, which went unknown to her hero-loving brother.

Incredibles 2

Three months after the defeat of Syndrome and the Omnidroids, Winston sees his chance to bring back the supers while observing Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl and Frozone's attempt to stop The Underminer. Evelyn is drawn into his plan, and arrives to join her brother and greet the three heroes when they are summoned to DevTech. When Winston explains the story and death of his father, still blaming the Relocation Act, Evelyn notably suggests that their father could've saved himself by hiding away in the safe room, but Winston strongly disagrees. Winston then reveals his plan to use Elastigirl as an advocate for superheroes, presenting the three heroes with Evelyn's analysis of how much damage particular heroes have caused over the years, proving Elastigirl to be the least destructive and therefore their best chance at proving why heroes are good for society. With prompting from Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl accepts the offer, and is sent to fight crime in New Urbem with a new suit and bike called the Elasticycle (the latter provided by Evelyn), while Mr. Incredible is left to watch over Dash, Violet and Jack-Jack in their new home.

Brainwashing Citizens

In New Urbem, Elastigirl successfully saves the passengers of a new monorail, which had been hijacked and sent in reverse. Upon confronting the driver of the monorail, Elastigirl finds that he has no memory of what had happened, and a message to her written by someone called "The Screenslaver". Because of her successful rescue attempt, the public begins to respect Elastigirl, who is invited to a televised interview. However, Screenslaver hijacks the interview by brainwashing everyone near a screen, revealing his intentions to assassinate the ambassador Elastigirl had met with earlier. Fortunately, Elastigirl succeeds in rescuing the ambassador from destruction, foiling Screenslaver's plan. The next day, after being introduced to a group of new superheroes inspired by her actions (Voyd, He-Lectrix, Reflux, Screech, Krushauer and Brick), Elastigirl and Evelyn begin to bond, where they both realize how to find the (false) Screenslaver, that being to trace his signal while he is broadcasting.

Determined to catch Screenslaver, Elastigirl sets up another interview in which she does not physically appear, and, as predicted, Screenslaver broadcasts again and takes control of all who are viewing. Screenslaver rants about how superheroes like Elastigirl are all part of humanity's growing need to replace everything meaningful and important in their lives with simulations, while never rising to anything challenging or to do anything themselves. All the while, Elastigirl tracks Screenslaver down to an apartment complex, where she discovers a large amount of research and devices related to hypnosis. Screenslaver then traps the two of them in a box with distorting lights and attacks Elastigirl using a weapon that neutralizes her elasticity. However, Screenslaver finds himself still overpowered by Elastigirl and sets a bomb to destroy his apartment while he escapes. After chasing Screenslaver down, Elastigirl unmasks him to find a young man who does not remember what had happened to him. Ignoring the man's claims of being just a normal pizza deliverer, Elastigirl has him arrested for his crimes.

True Nature


During a celebration at the Deavor estate, Helen walks into the editing suite. Evelyn later joins her and offers her a drink and starts a small conversation with her. Helen brings up the Screenslaver and said that defeating him was "too easy", Evelyn tries to change her mind and convince her that she won but Helen ignores her. While reviewing evidence together, Helen discovers a pair of Hypno-goggles in the Screenslaver's mask, implying that he was being brainwashed as well and that he's not the true villain. As Elastigirl slowly puts all the pieces together, Evelyn forces the goggles onto Helen to prevent her from taking action, brainwashing Helen in the process. Evelyn reveals herself to be the actual Screenslaver, stating that she despises superheroes and sees her brother's mission as a threat to humankind's independence. Evelyn then calls Bob to trick him into "rescuing" Helen before the hypnotized heroine forces another pair of hypno-goggles onto Bob, putting him under Evelyn's control as well. Evelyn then sends a group of hypnotized supers, which she probably lied to in order to get them to wear the goggles, to the Parr residence to capture Frozone, Violet, Dash, and Jack-Jack. Later, Lucius also ends up captured and put under Evelyn's control, although the Parr children escape in a tricked out car.

Dash, Violet, and Jack-Jack, whom Edna had fitted with a super suit, sneak aboard the Deavor's ship to rescue their parents. Jack-Jack removes the hypno-goggles on Helen, who then frees Bob and Lucius and reveals Evelyn's plan to the assembled leaders. A battle on the boat ensues threatening to crash the ship into New Urbem. However, the supers manage to stop it and Helen apprehends Evelyn when she tries to make an escape in her jet.

Defeat and Arrest

After Helen manages to get on the jet with the help of a superhero named Voyd, Evelyn makes a final attempt at killing her by lowering the oxygen. However, Helen manages to outsmart her by shooting her oxygen tank with a flare gun, which launches her out of the jet. She then saves her life with the help of Voyd, by falling after her, catching her, and bringing her down slowly to the deck of the DevTech ship.

Evelyn is later arrested for her crimes, and as she is hauled off to the police car, she ungratefully tells Helen that even though she saved her, that does not make her right. Helen simply replies that she is just glad that Evelyn is still alive. Evelyn is then driven off to jail, though Violet fears that, due to her wealth, she might be back out on the street in no time rather than face a lengthy prison sentence. Whether or not this turns out to be true is unrevealed.

In the end, the heroes get the last laugh when the government officially legalizes supers after all, meaning that they can come out of hiding at last and Evelyn's plans were ultimately for naught.

Evelyn Deavor

Evelyn: I would resist the temptation to stretch. The temperature around you is well below freezing. Try to stretch and you'll break.
Elastigirl: So, you're the Screenslaver.
Evelyn: Yes… and no. Let's say that I created the character and pre-recorded the messages.
Elastigirl: Does Winston know?
Evelyn: [laughs] That I'm the Screenslaver? Of course not. Can you imagine what Mr. Free Enterprise would do with my hypnosis technology?
Elastigirl: Worse than what you're doing?
Evelyn: Hey, I'm using the technology to destroy people's trust in it. Like I'm using superheroes.
Elastigirl: Who did I put in jail?
Evelyn: Pizza delivery guy. Seemed the right height and build. He gave you a pretty good fight. I should say, I gave you a good fight through him.
Elastigirl: But it doesn't bother you that an innocent man's in jail?
Evelyn: Eh, he was surly. And the pizza was cold.
Elastigirl: I counted on you.
Evelyn: [chuckles] That's why you failed.
Elastigirl: What?
Evelyn: Why would you count on me? Because I built you a bike? Because my brother knows the words of your theme song? We don't know each other!
Elastigirl: But you can count on me anyway.
Evelyn: I'm supposed to, aren't I? Because you have some strange abilities and a shiny costume, the rest of us are supposed to put our lives into your gloved hands. That's what my father believed. When our home was broken into, my mother wanted to hide. Begged my father to use the safe room. But Father insisted they call his superhero friends. He died, pointlessly, stupidly, waiting for heroes to save the day.
Elastigirl: But why would you… But your brother—
Evelyn: Is a child! He remembers the time when we had parents and superheroes! So, like a child, Winston conflates the two. Mommy and Daddy went away because supers went away. Our sweet parents were fools to put their lives in anybody else's hands! SUPERHEROES KEEP US
Elastigirl: Are you gonna kill me?
Evelyn: Nah. Using you is better. You're going to help me make supers illegal... forever.
~ Evelyn explaining her true colors to Elastigirl before placing her under her control.
Elastigirl's in trouble. (Bob: What? What happened to her?) Sorry to tell you on the phone. Meet me on our ship at DEVTECH. The ship at DEVTECH. I'll be there in 15 minutes.
~ Evelyn tricking Bob into "rescuing" Helen.
This is for your own good!
~ Evelyn trying to justify her actions to her horrified brother Winston, who instead leaps out of the plane to help the supers.
Welcome aboard, Elastigirl. Although we haven't yet reached our cruising altitude. Feel free to roam about the cabin, or just relax and let the cabin roam about you.
~ Evelyn trying to make Helen sick
You know what's sad? If it weren't for your core beliefs, I think we could have been good friends.
~ Evelyn explains why she betrayed Helen
The reputations of superheroes are ruined and you will never become legal. Ever!.(Elastigirl: Never?) [Laughs] No. (Elastigirl: Ever?) NO!. (Elastigirl: Not even a little smidgy-widgy?). Oh Hypoxia, when you don't have enough oxygen, things seems really silly.
Things get sillier and sillier and then you die. (Elastigirl: [laughs] I don't wanna die). Ah nobody does.
The fact that you saved me doesn't make you right.
~ Evelyn's last words before she is arrested.


  • "Screenslaver" is a pun on the word "screensaver". She shares her villain name with Screenslaver, her puppet, and is only referred by her villain name once in the film by Elastigirl.
  • Evelyn is the first female main antagonist in a Pixar film, followed by Gabby Gabby and Terry.
  • To prevent spoilers, Screenslaver's voice was deeper in the trailers and promos for the movie.
  • Evelyn is the ninth Pixar villain who does not appear to be evil at first, after Stinky Pete, Waternoose, Syndrome (from the previous film), AUTO, Charles Muntz, Lotso, Axlerod and Ernesto de la Cruz.
  • There are several hints about Evelyn's true nature before it is in fact revealed, including:
    • If one pronounces Evelyn's full name slightly differently, it sounds like "evil endeavor".
    • While Winston states their father would still be alive had supers been legal, Evelyn briefly says their father could have gotten to the safe room. It is implied they have argued on this repeatedly.
    • A few moments before her true nature is revealed, after Helen says that defeating the Screenslaver was easy, she replies "That was easy? Wow!", with the "wow" being said inside her wine glass, producing an echoing effect similar to the Screenslaver's computer voice.
    • Yet another interesting foreshadowing that she is the villain is her quote "Ah shucks, I'm just the genius behind the genius.".
    • In scenes where they are together, Winston is in the light, and Evelyn is in the shadow.
  • The Pizza Planet truck was parked in an alley near the fake Screenslaver's hideout, indicating that the Pizza Man Evelyn abducted worked there. It was shown when Helen escaped and he landed on the ground, but before he was himself again.
    • In addition to the truck almost appearing in every Pixar film, even Evelyn commented "Eh, he was surly. And the pizza was cold.".
  • The scenes where Evelyn used flashing blue lights as her method of propaganda were controversial due to them causing seizures for viewers sensitive to epilepsy. Those scenes were toned down in the SD & HD prints of the film, while the 4K prints have the flashing lights unchanged.
  • Evelyn was originally meant to have another brother named Nelson, who was intended to be the main villain, but the character was cut because the creators preferred to have a female villain.
    • Despite this, Nelson's design was kept and later reused for the superhero He-Lectrix.
  • Early into production, Evelyn was originally going to be an electric based supervillain named Shelectric. This idea was scrapped and instead turned into Evelyn. This allowed Nelson to be turned into He-Lectrix.
  • Evelyn has some similarities with the prequel's main antagonist, Syndrome. They initially like supers but eventually hate them due to a traumatic experience involving supers; Evelyn's father was killed by burglars when the supers failed to arrive due to the new law and Syndrome is rudely turned down by Mr. Incredible. They possess no superpowers, therefore making them ordinary humans; however, their great intelligence compensates for their lack of powers. Their goals involve getting revenge against supers; Evelyn wants to ban supers forever and Syndrome wants to kill all supers and render them obsolete with his technology. Ironically, their defeat is the same as their goal since Evelyn is most likely imprisoned for life and Syndrome is killed at the end.
    • Evelyn does have some redeeming qualities since she cares for her family unlike Syndrome who enjoys killing others, including children, despite their disregard of people's lives in danger.
  • A very interesting subject worth noting is that in various LEGO sets, the Screenslaver is actually Winston instead of Evelyn. The reason appears to be unknown, but it was most likely a red herring for those who purchased it.
  • Evelyn is the first Pixar villain to survive a film in which the protagonist is human.
  • Evelyn is the first Pixar character ever to use profanity. The second one is Purl, the titular main protagonist of the 2019 short Purl.
  • Evelyn being associated with hypnosis could be an allusion to her actor, Catherine Keener's role in Get Out Missy Armitage in which said character was a hypnotist.
    • It's also worth noting that Get Out came out a year prior to Incredibles 2.
