About

Megamind is a 2010 computer-animated film about a super-villain Megamind, who after killing his good-guy nemesis, Metro Man, becomes bored since there is no one left to fight. He creates a new foe, Tighten, 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…

History

On November 5th, 2010, Megamind was released in theaters in the United States. In the film, When a planet is about to be destroyed, two alien offspring are saved by their parents that launch them into space in pods. Their fate on Earth is opposite: one who is a beautiful baby with superpowers crashes in the lawn of a mansion, while the other who is ugly and blue with a big head crashes in a prison yard with his companion Minion. They are raised in different environments of Metro City but study in the same school for gifted children. While one becomes popular but selfish, the other is absolutely outcast by the other students. They become enemies and when they grow up, the population knows them as the superhero Metro Man and the villain Megamind. In their fights, Megamind always loses and ends up in prison; however, Megamind develops a ray that kills Metro Man, reducing him to a skeleton. After a short period, Megamind feels bored without the battles against Metro Man. Meanwhile he dates field reporter Roxanne Ritchie, who works with cameraman Hal Stewart, using the identity of curator Bernard and sooner they fall in love with each other. When Megamind decides to create another superhero to become his opponent, he accidentally transforms Hal Stewart into the super-powered Tighten, expecting that he would use his powers for good. However, Tighten becomes greedy and evil and destroys Metro City. Now Megamind is the only hope to save the world from the mean Tighten.



Online Presence

On November 30th, 2010, an official Facebook[1] page for the film was created, which gathered upwards of 9.7 million likes over the next 8 years. On December 1, 2010, the Megamind Wiki[2] was launched, gathering upwards of 230 pages over the next 8 years. On December 10, 2010 the /r/megamind[3]subreddit was created for discussions about the films.


Megamind

Megamind is an alien refugee from the Glaupunk Quadrant, a reformed super-villain, and the current Defender of Metro City. He is the main protagonist of Megamind. He is also the last known member of his race. Eight days after his birth, his home planet was destroyed by a black hole. Before the planet was absorbed, Megamind's parents sent him off the planet in an escape pod with his caretaker, Minion, to Earth.[4]

Metro Man

Metro Man, another alien refugee from the Glaupunk Quadrant, is the adopted son of Lord and Lady Scott, a retired superhero and Megamind's initial arch-nemesis of good (later to be 'replaced' by Tighten). He, like Megamind and Minion is the last member of his species. When he was still an infant, his home planet was destroyed by a black hole. Before the planet was absorbed, his parents sent him off the planet in a escape pod to Earth, where he 'landed' (after knocking Megamind's pod off-course) under the Christmas tree of the Scotts' home. Growing up, he constantly craved attention and praise, which caused him to (unwittingly) ruin Megamind's chance of having a better life.[5]
