We have plenty of gritty superhero shows full of blood, and gore, and realism — maybe it’s time for a comedy that shows what a supervillain does on his days off. That’s the premise of Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., an adult stop-motion animated comedy on Hulu that stars Patton Oswalt as the titular villainous floating head as he deals with his demanding family and corporate red tape. And Hulu has just released the first look photos for M.O.D.O.K., which look as hilariously mundane as you would expect.

M.O.D.O.K., the Marvel Comics character whose name is an acronym for the Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing, has never appeared in any officially-produced live-action projects. But the bizarre-looking character actually came close: he almost showed up as a villain on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but Marvel ended up revoking the show’s permission to use him before they could work him into the series.

While DC has taken aim at adult audiences with its animated Harley Quinn series, Marvel has yet to attempt to attract the attention of that same demographic. But that’s about to change with Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., an animated Hulu series that was announced about a year ago.

In the wake of this development, production has been paused and a major creative overhaul is in the works. Read More »
