Western Animation / Megamind

Who says villains can't rock out?
"What's the point of being bad when there's no good to try and stop you?"

What happens when you take the Superman mythos and give the point of view (and ultimate victory) to Lex Luthor/Brainiac instead? That question can finally be put to rest.

In the Genre Savvy world of spoof superheroes, Megamind, the greatest villain in the world, is locked in an eternal battle against the seemingly invincible and perfect Metro Man. However, in their last confrontation over Megamind's go-to Damsel in Distress, Roxanne, he finally (and surprisingly) manages to kill his Arch-Nemesis.

After initially gloating over his victory, Megamind soon realizes that his greatest wish has in reality become his worst nightmare: he had no real plans for what to do after he had gotten rid of Metro Man. It was the battle he found ultimately fulfilling, not the reward. Besides, as it turns out, being completely free to wreak ultimate havoc quickly gets really, really boring.

To snap himself out of his funk and get his super-villain career back on track, he creates a new superhero, Titan, to be his replacement nemesis. But things don't turn out as planned - to put it mildly - and before long, it's up to the bad guy to stop his heroic creation before it is too late.

Not to be confused with Mega Man (despite the protagonist's blue-ness as well as the fact that the villain's name is "Mega Mind" and the hero's name is "Metro Man").
