* Were Metroman's adopted parents aware of his [[spoiler: fake death]]? It seems pretty cruel not to let them know he is [[spoiler: alive and well]]. I can understand fooling the citizens, but his parents, the 2 people who raised him?

** If it was just about change and ignoring who Megamind was, Roxanne would not of [[spoiler: twisted the watch after Megamind scared Titan off as Metro Man]] - also prior to being rumbled, Megamind does start to consider genuinely improving the city as a result of actual positive social interaction which he's never really had before. In some respects his "make-a-hero" scheme is just a way to try and return to a dynamic he knows out of fear of things changing. Plus he'd already wrecked the town and found that the satisfaction of destruction is quite short lived.

** Megamind didn't really intend to murder Metro Man; he expected Metro Man to escape and send him back to prison as usual. His state of mind is more like recklessness, playing a deadly game with Metro Man that he should know could result in lethal consequences. He is clearly guilty of numerous crimes, but it isn't really a product of evil intent, more like a screwed up and very immature way of thinking.

Once he has killed Metro Man, he is still too immature to really appreciate the depth of his wrongdoing, he is just running off a script of what a supervillain is supposed to do when he wins.

** ure, normal!Hal wasn't a villain per se, but the fact that he turned into one when given the chance is pretty telling. Roxanne has the right to choose whomever she's dating, regardless of whether that particular someone is nice to her or not. Metro Man was saving her on a regular basis, all the while being helpful and polite, and the movie emphatically made a point of that this has nothing to do with romantic affection. Hal should have learned long ago to take no for an answer and leave Roxanne alone with his advances - the movie suggests that this was roughly the billionth time he asked her out, and she always put him down. Hal is the only one to blame here as he behaved like a small child who throws a tantrum when he's denied something. Except that this particular tantrum ended in manslaughter and severe property damage.

Roxanne has the right to choose whomever she's dating, regardless of whether that particular someone is nice to her or not. Metro Man was saving her on a regular basis, all the while (presumably) being helpful and polite, and the movie emphatically made a point of that this has nothing ''nothing'' to do with romantic affection. Hal should have learned long ago to take no for an answer and leave Roxanne alone with his advances - the movie suggests that this was roughly the billionth time he asked her out, and she always put him down. While not doing anything ''evil'' per se, Hal suspiciously resembles a stalker (remember the [[StalkerShrine creepy poster in his room, complete with a love note]]). Hal is the only one to blame here as he behaved like a small child who throws a tantrum when he's denied something.

damage. As for treating him like dirt, that's pretty obviously Hal's [[UnreliableNarrator own twisted interpretation of the previous events]], as when we actually see them together onscreen, Roxanne shows incredible patience and sympathy towards him.

*Just how did Megamind's HeelFaceTurn affect his foster family? By becoming a superhero, he basically betrayed them in favor of getting the affection of the people who ostracized him and made him want to be a villain in the first place! As a child, the inmates were the only people who genuinely cared for him and accepted him for who he was, and now he's making a living out of pursuing bay guys like them? I'd imagine Megamind's next few visits in the Metro City Prison were incredibly awkward.
