Citizens of Metrocity,

long have I waited

to give you your just desserts.

Prepare to face

the unbridled wrath of... fantastic bargains!

Welcome, welcome,

citizens of Metrocity,

to the Evil Lair Yard Sale.

As you know, this is my first day

as defender of Metrocity,

and now that I'm no longer evil ,

I no longer need things that do evil .

- A Terror Teddy, awesome.

- Excellent choice.

Now, let the browsing com mence.

Minion , we're going

to need more petty cash .

- What's behind there, Minion?

- Nothing .

- I knew it.

- Please, please, please.

Can't we just keep the spider-bot?

Minion , heroes don't drive around

in creepy spee-ider-bots.

See? Now you've hurt its feelings.

Spider-bot, come here.

Damien, we do not play with laser guns.

- Come on , Mom .

- Put it back this instant.

Madame, he's merely expressing himself.

Besides, it's not a laser gun .

lt's a dehydration . . .

. . .gun .

Just soak her in some water,

not the toilet. She'll be fine.

- That is so cool .

- Yes.

Free doughnuts with every

billion-dollar purchase.

Piece of junk? This satellite death ray

goes up to 900 m illion volts,

and has its own GPS.

Let me handle this, Minion .

For insurance purposes,

l have to tell you to only use it

for barbecuing , not for evil .

- I don't like barbecues.

- " I don't like barbecues."

Shall we start the bidding?

Bootwheel of death .

Sold to the soccer mom !

Can I get seven for the flamethrower?

Sold to the chef.

Excellent for creme brulee.

Do I hear ten bucks

for the disguise generator?

Sold to the woman

with the beautiful m ustache.

Sold to you , sir. Sold .

Sold . Sold .

Sold .


The place is already looking less evil .

Sir, now that we've gotten rid

of all your "evil things,"

how are we going to protect Metro City?

Way ahead of you , Minion .

What are you wearing?

My new super-secret,

superhero super-suit.

l designed it myself,

to copy all of Metro Man's powers:

super-boots, super-strength ,

and super-X-ray-slash-laser vision .

Yeah , I'm not sure

if it's really. . . you .

Au contraire, filet Minion .

This is perfect for when we go

on our first patrol of the city.

- What's that?

- It's the only thing I couldn't sell ,

other than the death ray.

Just a box with a button on it.

- I don't even remem ber what it does.

- But it m ust do something .

Maybe it opens the ja-rage door.

Oh , dear.

Greetings, hero.

You've just unleashed

an unspeakabIe eviI upon Metrocity,

and you're reaIIy,

reaIIy not going to Iike it.

- Where did it go?

- I don't know.

Unspeakable evil, activated.

Sir, what was the unspeakable evil?

l've had a lot of evil plans

over the years.

- You forgot.

- You should've catalogued them

- so I wouldn't have to remem ber.

- What?!

- This is actually your fault.

- My fault? How is this my fault?

l'm thinking . It could be anything .

- Remem ber the Forget-Me Bom b?

- Yes! No.

What about

the Encyclopedia A-bom b-ica?

Rock 'Em , Sock 'Em Kittens.

They were as cute as they were deadly.

- The Destructosaur.

- Wait.

lt's something beginning with M.

M, that really narrows it down .

Don't move.

l think I remem bered what it is.

lt's my favorite!

- It's the Mega-Megam ind .

- Ollo!

l transferred my evil personality

into a giant ra-bot.

- Man , I do good work.

- Really terrific stuff,

but we should probably turn it off.

White suit, white cape,

if it isn't my oId friend, Metro Man.

- He thinks you're Metro Man .

- Well , I am defender of Metrocity now.

This is the perfect time for me

to debut my super-suit.
