Rich vein of humour – Megamind
actually enhances the shiny, primary-hued images.
Most interestingly, Megamind does actually appear to have something to say. In the second half, with Metro Man apparently deceased, the bored Megamind makes a superhero of a relatively ordinary, no more than usually frustrated slacker.
Now named Tighten (another good verbal gag), the resulting caped crusader goes on to demonstrate that everyday human pettiness is more frightening than the grandiose supernatural evils imagined by comics writers.
Heck, maybe there is still some mileage in the super-satire.
