Megamind smashes record

  I heard about this event a couple of weeks ago that Paramount/DreamWorks Animation were trying to set a Guinness Book of World Record for the "largest gathering of superheroes". They managed it with 1,580 superheroes of all ages in attendance. This broke the current record, of 1500, also held by DreamWorks Animation.  All this happened on Saturday, October 2, in L.A.

  I think that this event was discriminatory against super villains that are the the reason why most of these, so called, superheroes are in a second job in the first place.

The brilliant and diabolical super-villain Megamind has been attempting to conquer Earth for over 20 years but, each time, he’s been thwarted by his arch nemesis, the caped superhero Metro Man. But all that changes one day when Megamind accidentally kills Metro Man in the throes of one of his evil plans. Suddenly finding himself without a foe to overcome, the despondent evil genius decides that the only way out of his rut is to create a new super rival. He’s a bigger, better and stronger opponent than Metro Man ever was. But when the former good guy begins to wage his own war aimed at destroying the world, Megamind must decide: Can he defeat his own (now) diabolical creation? Can the world’s smartest man make the smart decision for once? Can the Evil Genius switch sides and become the Hero of his own story?
The film hits UK screens December 3.
