Behind the scenes: The Incredibles!

Some of City's football this season has led to suggestions that the team are actually blessed with super powers - and now we have evidence to back those claims up.

Super heroes have been forced to live among mere mortrals - just like the Pixar movie The Incredibles. Who'd have guessed they were part of the City squad? Secret filming has revealed the following...

Micah Richards is one of The Incredibles. Here he demonstrates his power to make the ball hover for several seconds by touching a button on his chest.

Samir Nasri is another Incredible. He has the power to make defenders go the wrong way just by mind control...

Samir and His ESP

Samir sends Vincent Kompany into a trance with one glance. "Yes, master..." says VK as he approaches his new team-mate.

Meanwhile, Incredible Mario Balotelli uses a special barcode, cunningly cut into a haircut, to turn opposition into 1970s sitcom actors, just by sheer will. Here he glances at Joleon Lescott and Vinny (who was a target for the the super heroes)...

..and they turn into Steptoe and Son.

Joleon: "Save me, Harold! It's all gone dark!"

Vinny: "Have you been on the cooking sherry again, Pater?"

Lescott and Kompany

After witnessing The Incredibles in action, Adam Johnson takes cover to protect himself. "If they can't see me, they can't harm me," he says.

At least, that's what he thinks... (cue evil laugh)...
