The supervillain Megamind finally conquers his nemesis, the hero Metro Man… but finds his life pointless without a hero to fight.
Plot: After super-villain Megamind (Ferrell) kills his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man (Pitt), he becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Titan (Hill), who, instead of using his powers for good, sets out to destroy the world, positioning Megamind to save the day for the first time in his life.
Megamind: I had a fairly standard childhood. My parents couldn't wait to get me out of the house…
[Just before a planet is pulled into a black hole, a couple places their child in a rocket ship and prophesize greatness in his future]
Megamind: It was a high expectation to place on an eight-day old…
[Just as the rocket ship leaves, another planet that gets pulled into the hole sends off their own rocket ship, and the two collide with each other and race to Earth]
Megamind: It turned out a family in the Proxima quadrant had the same idea. That was when I met Mr Goody-Two-Shoes, and our glorious rivalry was born!
Trivia: There are 16 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- The film was originally titled "Master Mind." However, the name had already been trademarked by the makers of the 1970s board game and TV show, so it could not be used.
- The film was going to be titled "Oobermind", which was a misspelling of the term "über-mind." The word "über" refers to something that is large or great; in this case, the title character's over-swollen skull/brain. But it didn't sound right, so it was revised to become "Megamind".
- The film's plot was based on the premise: "What if Lex Luthor defeated Superman?"
