Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy are holding up the line at the Krusty Krab, trying to decide what to order. So SpongeBob suggests for them to try the Krabby Patty. Finally, Mermaid Man orders a Krabby Patty and a Pipsqueak Patty for Barnacle Boy. However, Barnacle Boy wants a full sized Krabby Patty but Mermaid Man says that Barnacle Boy will never finish it so he finally becomes tired of being treated like a kid and a sidekick, because he's almost as old as Mermaid Man. So, he changes his name to Barnacle Man, and turns over to a life of crime and joins Man Ray and the Dirty Bubble to form EVIL (Every Villain Is Lemons). In a secret lair, the Chief of the Superheroes appears on a screen and gives Mermaid Man, SpongeBob, Patrick, Sandy, and Squidward their mission: to bring Barnacle Boy back over to the side of justice. But soon they mess up, and Mermaid Man surrenders and prepares to obey every rule Barnacle Boy commands. The first command: to be treated as a superhero not a sidekick. The second command: to be referred to as Barnacle Man, and the last command: to get adult sized Krabby Patties. The other members of EVIL are disappointed by these demands. Barnacle Boy feels sorry for what he has done and goes back to the side of justice again. In a satire of hokey endings, the episode ends with everyone laughing, including the (live-action) Chief of the Superheroes. Image File history File links Ijlsa. ...
