One of the greatest villains out of the Marvel Universe is hands down M.O.D.O.K. That’s exactly why the latest trailer for the upcoming Hulu series is very exciting. While, Marvel could have made this a straight up serious supervillain story that played it straight, they have gone a very interesting route.
From the stop motion animation to the shows town and its vocal cast of Patton Oswalt as the lead M.O.D.O.K, this series is going to rule and make us laugh our guts out while being great. I mean, Jon Hamm as Iron Man in itself is a gift!
The synopsis for M.O.D.O.K goes like this:
The megalomaniacal villain (voiced by Patton Oswalt) has long pursued his dream of one day conquering the world. But after years of setbacks and failures fighting the Earth’s mightiest heroes, M.O.D.O.K has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground. Ousted as A.I.M.’s leader, while also dealing with his crumbling marriage and family life, the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing is set to confront his greatest challenge yet! Can he rebuild A.I.M., fix his crumbling marriage, appease his teenage daughter, and help his son prepare for his upcoming bar mitzvah? Those are just some of the many challenges M.O.D.O.K must conquer!
I mean, even the setup sounds amazing. I know that a lot of you guys are going to wish that the series has gone the serious bad guy route and showed the real evil nature of M.O.D.O.K, but I think that this is refreshing and a nice direction to take things. The trailer won me over hands down.
