A mysterious vehicle using a giant magnet steals a highly potent mutagen known as PX-41 from a secret laboratory in the Arctic Circle. The Anti-Villain League (AVL), led by Silas Ramsbottom, sends one of its agents, Lucy Wilde to collect Gru, who was a former super-villain. Meanwhile, at Gru’s house, it is one of his daughters, Agnes’s birthday and he hosts a party for her. Later, Lucy Wilde uses her lipstick taser to get Gru to the AVL headquarters, as two minions witness the kidnapping and try to save Gru only to end up tagging along.
When they make it at the AVL Silas Ramsbottom introduces himself (much to Gru’s and the minion’s amusement) and tells him he was taken there to track down the culprit of the person who stole the lab and recovers the mutagen. However, Gru refuses, claiming that he is now a legitimate father and cheap jelly businessman. Longing to resume his criminal life, Dr. Nefario, Gru’s friend and assistant, leaves Gru for new employment. This convinces a reluctant Gru to investigate the theft and work with undercover AVL agent Lucy Wilde.
The pair begin their search in the Paradise Shopping Mall, disguised as bakery employees. God immediately suspects the Mexican restaurant owner, Eduardo Pérez, of being the infamous “El Macho”, a legendary super-villain who supposedly died by riding a shark into the mouth of an active volcano with 250 pounds of dynamite strapped to his chest. Gru and Lucy break into Eduardo’s restaurant at night but find no proof. Meanwhile, Agnes, who dreams of having a mother one day, believes that Gru will fall in love with Lucy. God denies it, saying his relationship with Lucy is only professional. Please See More Information….
