During one of his many attempts to defeat Metro Man, Megamind kidnaps news reporter Roxanne Ritchi and uses her as bait to lure Metro Man into the city observatory where Megamind intends to kill him with a death ray.
When Metro Man is then seemingly killed by the death-ray, Megamind is initially thrilled that he has defeated his archenemy, and he proceeds to live the criminal dream life, taking over town hall and plundering the city.
At some point in his childhood he was allowed to go to a normal school, were he became a neglected outcast due to his destructive intellect, with his piranha-like sidekick Minion as his only friend.
Realizing that he is only gifted in causing trouble, and jealous of all of the attention and praise young Metro Man received, Megamind became a supervillain to rival Metro Man, though he was thwarted on a regular basis.
Megamind (his birth name remains unknown) was born to an unnamed couple in his home planet.
