What if some of the most popular characters in the history of cinema suddenly went super-villainous?
In "Despicable Me" (2010), the superbad superdad known as Gru (Steve Carell) conjured a nefarious plan to shrink and steal the moon. In this week's "Despicable Me 2," the former evil-doer is enlisted by the Anti-Villain League to go undercover and track down a new supervillain. Through all of his adventures, Gru is assisted, of course, by his army of minions ... an army that's always looking for a few new good recruits.
Here's an idea of what might happen if the minions went from being "infamous" to just plain "famous."
