                  The new protector of Metro City faces the one foe that could cut his heroic reign short in this companion adventure to the hit animated feature Megamind. The diabolical items cluttering their evil lair no longer of use, Megamind (Will Ferrell) and Minion (David Cross) decide that everything must go -- everything except the Death Ray, of course. Meanwhile, Megamind reveals to the people of Metro City that he's created a special suit that gives him all of Metro Man's powers, and that he will use it to keep the city safe and secure. Later, while sifting through the items that didn't sell, Megamind stumbles across a mysterious red button, and pushes it. Suddenly, a forgotten robot named Mega-Megamind appears. Mistaking Megamind for Metro Man, it launches an all out attack on the wisecracking hero and his terrified sidekick. When Mega-Megamind proves to be an exceptional opponent, the only hope for ending the massive robot's rampage of destruction is to unleash another, much smaller robot that Minion had secretly stored for safe keeping. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
