Hero Overview

I've finally free to get in touch of my true power... weaving lyrical magic.
~ Metro Man to Megamand and Roxanne when they discover his secret lair and he's still alive.

Metro Man is the overarching protagonist of DreamWorks’s 21st animated film Megamind. He is the archenemy-turned-predecessor of Megamind, formerly serving as the protector of Metro City as its local superhero. Like Megamind, he hailed from the same dying galaxy as him and also arrived on Earth, going on to achieve great success and recognition amongst its people while Megamind was shunned by them, leading him to become a supervillain. However, he eventually realizes that being a superhero isn't all it seems, beginning to grow depressed and bored about his life, so he faked his death, retired from crime fighting, and took up music. Later on, at the end of the movie, he wears a disguise and congratulates Megamind for saving the city from Tighten.

He is voiced by Brad Pitt, who also voiced Sinbad in Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas and played David Mills in Seven and Benjamin Button in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Brad Pitt also played Frank Harris in the 1992 film Cool World.



After his home planet was pulled into a black hole, Metro Man was the only survivor. He and Megamind (an alien who lost his parents and home planet like him) were both launched off-planet in rockets, and collided, and Megamind told that was the day his rivalry with "Mr. Goodie-Two-Shoes" began. Metro Man landed in a house, in which the couple who living there adopted him and raising him as their own son. Megamind crashed in the Metro City Prison and was raised by some prisoners.

As children, he and Megamind met again in a small school "for 'lil gifted kids". There Metro Man and the other children mistreated Megamind and Minion, and Metro Man gained more and more acceptance. Megamind decided that he was destined to be the bad guy and smoke-bombed the school, and Metro Man pulled it out of the ground and flew off with the building as Megamind was brought back to the prison. After a few years and battles with Megamind, Metro Man became the defender of Metro City.

In the unveiling of Metro Man Museum, Megamind kidnapped Roxanne Ritchie. Roxanne, not fearful because she had been captured by the villain so many times and knew all his tricks, claimed that they were at the city's abandoned observatory. Metro Man flew to the observatory, only to be trapped, as Megamind built an imitation of the observatory in his hideout. He traps the megahero in the real observatory, made of copper, which supposedly drains Metro Man's power, and after a delay, destroys the observatory with a death ray. He is presumed killed as his cape flies into Megamind's hideout with a skeleton wearing it. He is again seen in the middle of the film, which he reveals to Megamind and Roxanne what really happened:

During the night of his supposed death, Metro Man had been using his super-speed to re-evaluate his life. He realized that he had grown incredibly tired of being a hero, and decided to fake his death so that he could retire. He faked his weakness against copper, secretly smirking to himself. When Megamind's death ray hit, Metro Man flew to a nursing school, took a skeleton, placed his cape on it, and threw it to Megamind's lair to give the impression of him dying. Metro Man then went into hiding in an unfamiliar area of town in the old school he and Megamind both attended. Taking on the new identity of Music Man, he decided to become a music artist.

After hearing this, Roxanne angrily throws all sorts of things at Metro Man, which break on impact and barely faze him. Megamind tries to convince Metro Man to stop Tighten, but he refuses, but tells Megamind that good will always rise up against evil. In the end, during the inauguration of Museum Megamind, Metro Man is among the audience in disguise, silently congratulating his former nemesis.

Metro Man at first appears to be the ideal man. Charismatic, friendly, noble, witty, mature, even-tempered, tough, respectful, optimistic, mild-mannered, altruistic, nice, modest, extroverted, thoughtful, rational, observant, merciful, affectionate, and no-nonsense and has a strong sense of justice. However, as shown during his childhood that he and the other children treated Megamind badly, Metro Man's actions at this time are what caused Megamind to think all he could be was a villain.

During his adulthood, he eventually came to the realization of what he had done. Of the pointlessness and doldrums of constantly fighting Megamind who developed a Sisyphus-like enjoyment of committing crimes, then being arrested, then repeating the whole process again, Metro Man became bored with his superpowers and decided to stop using them in order to start focusing more on composing music.


  • Metro Man is a spoof of Superman.
  • Mark Wahlberg, Josh Brolin, Kyle Chandler, and Matt Damon were both considered for the role of Metro Man before Brad Pitt was cast.
  • Him faking his death is likely a reference to the urban myth that Elvis Presley faked his death. Much like Elvis he dresses in white, has stylish hair and plays guitar.
