Years ago, two alien beings landed on Earth. The one with the superpowers turned into a bona fide superhero named Metro Man. The hyper-intelligent one evolved into a supervillain named Megamind. When Megamind finally defeats his archenemy for good, his existence seems oddly pointless. Tom McGrath, who co-directed the Madagascar trilogy, pokes fun at the superhero franchises in this enjoyable animation. However, the movie suffers from following in the footsteps of the superior Despicable Me, another story of a bad guy who may be not be that bad after all. To make matters worse, Megamind's sidekick's name is Minion.
