"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?

In the 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 go-to Damsel in Distress Roxanne, Megamind finally (and surprisingly) manages to kill his Arch-Nemesis.

After initially gloating over his victory, Megamind soon realizes that his greatest wish was not all it's been cracked up to be...

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").
