Metrocity is Mine!

This storyboard sequence featured an alternative scene with Megamind and Minion in the Mayor's officer. In this version, the film original had another group of super villains, The Doom Syndicate who decide to team up with Megamind after he supposedly killed Metro Man.

Doom Syndicate

The final scene is very similar just minus the Doom syndicate. The ill fated doom syndicate provided added pressure and motivation to scenes.

Megamind: The Button of DoomEdit

The Button of Doom sequence is very similar to the final product, except the dailogue has been altered so that's Megamind's banter with the Mega-Megamind, mirrors that of the banter he and Metro Man used to share in the film.
