An animated yawn

By Michael Phillips
Trying to get the old adversarial magic back, he trains a new rival ( Jonah Hill voicing Hal, a TV cameraman moony over the on-air reporter voiced by Tina Fey). Megaminds new rival acquires superpowers but uses them for uncon trollable evil, rather than controllable evil.
