Despite the existence of Disney+, Disney still allows other streaming platforms to make adaptations of Marvel Content. Now Hulu’s YouTube channel just launched the trailer of the comedy stop motion animated series M.O.D.O.K.
Usually, Modok got portrayed as a scary murderous villain. His name means Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing. Sometimes the M in the acronym is replaced by Mental or Mobile. Modok is a supervillain, and the leader of the corporate group called A.I.M. ( short for Advanced Idea Mechanics.)
Modok got created to be a weapon for A.I.M, but he ends up taking over instead. He used to be the head researcher for A.I.M. He got mutated into a grotesque giant floating head after all those experiments, which gave him mental powers. He also emits hyper psionic attacks and has the ability of flight.
This new animated serial has similarities with Robot Chicken from the Adult swim. This comedy series might be Marvel’s answer to HBO Max’s Harley Quinn Animated series. Harley Quinn is such a big hit that it is going to have a third season. There used to be a plan to make an adult-oriented Deadpool series, but it never gets to fruition due to conflicts with Fox.
The Modok series will not only tackle Modok’s life as a supervillain but also his life as a family man. On this show, he has a wife and two children. His wife is a career woman and Blogger named Jodie, and she wanted to have a typical family life. He has a son named Lou, who is a normal boy, and he seemed to be a disappointment for Modok. His Younger daughter Mellisa looks exactly like Modok, and she aspires to be her dad. She is also the most popular girl in her school.
The show will have cameos and guests from Popular heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe. Modok will premiere early next year in 2021 at Hulu.
