- The President resembles Stephen Colbert.
- Heck, the movie could actually be our universe in the future. Where the man runs again and WINS. And people have just adjusted to aliens and mayhem and madness more with him running the show.
- Better - it's the show's universe. After all, in the world of character!Stephen, aliens and mayhem and madness is just Tuesday.
- It would make sense, considering the President is voiced by him. Only problem is that he wouldn't be that stupid if he ever won an election as a politician.
- Stephen Colbert the political satirist wouldn't be. His character, on the other hand, probably would.
- How about this: Mirage was hit by the same as Susan, and mutated the same eyes and hair. Notice, Susan looked just like a regular dark-haired, doe-eyed woman before the meteor.
- Mirage might had be a far family member that also happened to be walking around near the meteorite crash site with Susan, but it took longer to recover and no one notices her after all the wedding interruption.
- "All of this has happened before and will happen again."
- This is because, believe it or not, macrophiles get really turned on at the prospect of the destruction of humanity. And if it features bloody corpses, better.
- The Iron Giant came out of nowhere to save the day. Suuuuuppppeeerrrrmaaaaaannnn!
- He has been Roland, Beowulf, Achilles, Gilgamesh. He has been called a hundred names and will be called a thousand more before the world goes dim and cold. He is hero.
- Maybe he himself is a longevity empowered monster of some kind.
- He might be a WW2 veteran, for that matter - assuming that it takes place roughly in the present day, he would have been about twenty years old in 1940.
- He is General George S. Patton's most recent reincarnation.
- Insectosaurus is male.
- He's his world's counterpart of Nick Fury.
- Fridge Logic says he would've had to have seen her naked if he changed her into that unitard while she was unconscious.
- Maybe he had a robot do it.
- But then, the Mirelurks and especially the mirelurks kings must be the irradiated descendants of the Missing Link, same for the radroachs and the Doc.Irradiated Bob is the Master and Susan is Frank Horrigan (really nasty radiation).
- Jossed by the Halloween special.
- Considering the TV series is set after the movie and the Earth is not a post-apocalyptic wasteland in said series, it's pretty obvious the nukes weren't launched or were somehow stopped.
- She can support her weight without crushing all her bones, indicating some kind of mass or gravity power.
- Well, she did punch through a supposedly impentrable energy field with relative ease, and through alien metal like they were wet paper. Even without the Square-Cube Law, that's pretty strong.
- I was actually rather impressed with the writers for how they handled this. Yes, they gave Susan nothing but size and standard non-flying brick package for powers, but they then let her use them. There was literally no point at which she attempted to use brute strength for anything and it failed, except when she took a little too long to break the jar/cage her powers were drained in (and it was about to shatter if she'd had a few seconds longer). And once she gained her confidence (aka by the time she was abducted), she realized and accepted this fact and started throwing brute strength around as a solution even when standard movie/videogame logic tells her she should be helpless.
- Sort of personal cannon, but I consider high durability as one of her powers after that scene.
- General Monger describes her by saying "her entire body radiates with pure energy, giving her enormous strength and size." I interpreted that as, the Quantonium gives you godlike strength and endurance, and becoming giant is just a side effect.
- Alternatively, he gave his computer a voice to resemble his wife and personality.
- The weird thing is that this explanation makes MORE sense than the one given in the film. If he really is the missing evolutionary link between humanity and sea creatures, his body and brain shouldnt be at the point where he can fully grasp the English language, let alone pronounce all of the sounds in it. He would simply be too far behind the point where humanitys ancestors evolved for those capabilities.
Furthermore, she's unknowingly already done it once already; when Dr. Cockroach was experimenting on her and thought that she'd grown a couple of inches taller it wasn't actually his machine that did it, it was her body unconsciously deciding that the fastest way to get away from the pain was to shoot up a little more so the electrodes would either be yanked off her face or their wires torn out of the machine by her head suddenly being further away than the cords could reach.
- Makes sense. Her first growth spurt takes long enough for her to get from the field to the church, cleaned up, and to reach the altar. Her subconcious knew what she hadn't yet admitted (that her fiancé is a Jerkass), so her body decided that she needed a way out of this wedding. Cue glowing and massive growth.
- In the first episode of the series Susan absorbs a massive explosion of an element called Hyperium that allows her to shrink back to normal size for a brief time.
- I totally thought this too, maybe Gallaxhar wasn't treated nicely on Megamind's planet, so he destroyed it and left to take over the earth.
- Actually, it seemed to be a black hole that destroyed Megamind's planet.
- But maybe triggering a black hole was how Gallaxhar destroyed the planet, his backstory is blanked out by the cloning machine and ends up as a load of rubbish but what if he said 'I made the sun turn into a black hole and destroyed the planet' but didn't say he was seventy lightyears away and made the hole safe afterwards.
- Although in MVA they do a bit of Lampshade Hanging on that aliens always land in America - and don't mention anything about them landing in South Africa before.
With a lot of Moth, Butterfly, and insect species in general, they can spend a majority of their life cycle in the pupa stage, while the mature, adult stage is a relatively short period of a day to a week breeding like mad before they die. Poor Insecto, being one of a kind, probably missed out on going Out with a Bang.
- That tomato/ranch dressing experiment just opened a portal to the Elemental Plane of Water, and allowed one to slip in.
In case of Sqweep, well... he was going to make an essay on Earth's dominant species, right? He actually thought that the dominant species were squirrels, even though there is a lot of human-made structures near. His species, who obviously hail from a Mary Suetopia, were aiming for the weakest sentient species possible. It was close enough.
Basically, they are all in an Anti-Human Alliance, and they want humans as slaves and cattle.
- One problem with that theory, none of the others except for Coverton seemed to purposefully do anything to harm the aliens or the Earth.
Also, Coverlord is not the leader of his people; he's just the colonization commander to the real leader Emperor Zing, and Coverton just really admires him. However, Coverlord is also one of the saner people on Roger's planet, and his troops might be even incompetent, thus Emperor Zing offs him. Simultaneously, President Hathaway is no longer president, and, since he's the only reason Coverton is still on Earth, Coverton is captured and dissected. Since Emperor Zing is a sex-obsessed dick, he doesn't care about Coverton at all.
