** Yeah, it seems kind of dumb that Hal is taken in by 'Space Stepmom', but it seems he's never met Minion. Apart from everything else, how's Hal meant to know that his alien space-father ''wouldn't'' marry some kind of hyper-intelligent fish in a robot gorilla suit and wig? Why wouldn't their alien customs seem rather... alien? It's not a high-tech disguise like Mega-Mind's, but it didn't ''need'' to be. When it DID need to be a great disguise, he DID use the watch.

** Or the idea ''did'' come to him - fleatingly - then he realized he'd be fighting a ''woman''; and that's most likely not his style.

*** At that point in the movie, Megamind is working to restore the status quo, because VictoryIsBoring. Yes, Roxanne fits the superhero mentality perfectly--but if he makes ''Roxanne'' the hero, he has to stop kidnapping her to lure the hero into his traps! He's trying to make things the way they were before, so she's already designated the damsel in distress in his mind.

* When Megamind points out to Roxanne that ice is what happens when water gets cold, he may not be trying to be deliberately sarcastic or snide, or even be oblivious. The issue is that he's so intelligent in relation to most people that her pointing out how to make ice sounds just as simple a statement to him as the full explanation of how he made a Metro Man infusion gun. Megamind liked her at that point so he was just being polite about it and explaining something to her.

** Plus, it's almost certainly an ''office'' building. There's not much chance that the tenant companies would be open for normal business hours when there's a villainous super rampaging around the city.

*** Megamind refers to them as "menacing little cyborgs" in their introductory scene. Though that doesn't specify what organic parts they have, you can infer a lot with that information.

* The film subtly deconstructs why superheroes ''need'' a secret identity. If Superman had no Clark Kent, then he might have burned out just as Metro Man did.

** Since Megamind didn't know about it, chances are Metro Man never discovered it as a kid, when he would've flaunted it. Besides, he never really needed it, what with the other powers at his disposal. Advertising it by using it to escape when he had so many other options open to him just doesn't make any sense, especially when it's so useful to escape the everyday grind.

* At first, Metro Man's skeleton flying directly to Megamind and Roxanne in the beginning can be easily chalked up to RuleOfFunny, but when we learn that [[spoiler:Metro Man faked his death]], it becomes obvious that [[spoiler:Metro Man ''threw'' the skeleton to them in order to give incontrovertible "proof" that he was dead]].
** This was explicitly shown in the film...

** For all we know, [[spoiler: Metro Man ''was'' saving people during Titan's rampage. Using SuperSpeed makes him undetectable, remember? MM could've been zipping around in the background, deflecting rubble from bystanders or moving them out of danger, without giving away the fact he was still alive. If the driver of that tossed gas truck suddenly finds himself lying in the road near the blazing wreck of his vehicle, with no memory of how he got out, he's going to assume he was "miraculously flung clear" and knocked out, not rescued by a dead superhero. Metro Man wouldn't want civilians to ''die'' so he could retire; he just didn't want the pressure of being the city's ''only'' recourse in times of trouble, anymore.]]
