Heat Vision breakdown
Plot details are scarce, but Super Day Care is set in a world in which there are superheroes and supervillains but only one super day care for all the super children.
The idea was originated by Douglas Britton and developed alongside Glassgold and Einsohn
Aimee Rivera is overseeing for Skydance.
Schoolcraft and Simons flexed their superhero know-how with Megamind, which took on comic book tropes and asked what happens after the villain finally defeats his arch-nemesis.
