In the 2010 animated movie Megamind, after seemingly killing his arch-nemesis Metro Man, Megamind finds himself without a purpose and decides to create a new superhero by infusing someone with Metro Man's DNA. After accidentally shooting and infusing Hal Stewart, the following discussion takes place between Megamind and Minion:
Megamind: Who is this man we've infused with godlike power?
Minion (using a laptop to obtain information): Well, sir, his name's Hal Stewart. He's 28 years old. No criminal record. Actually, no records at all. Apparently, this man hasn't accomplished anything.
Megamind: Not yet, Minion. Not...yet.
Minion: So I will just go ahead and defuse him, since this is clearly a mistake.
- Why did Minion think someone with a bad record should be infused with Metro Man's DNA while Megamind himself had cleared it that someone good should be shot and trained to become a new hero so that Megamind can fight in a battle of good vs evil?
- Why did Megamind reply to Minion with "not yet" when Minion said Hal Stewart hadn't committed any crimes in his life yet? Again, didn't Megamind himself tell Minion there should be a good person to fight him? Does fighting a bad person make a good person bad? Even if it makes a good person bad, that was never part of Megamind's plan. He just wanted to have a nemesis in order to not be without a purpose.
