6 Thoughts on the First Season of M.O.D.O.K.

As has been the case for some time now, we are living in a golden age of superhero entertainment. So much so that geeky fans like me can pick and choose which superhero stuff they watch and still enjoy a lot of it. And so much so that there now exists an animated cartoon comedy about M.O.D.O.K. This show exists. It’s real. And I watched it all in a weekend and loved it!

TV Rating: 9/10 – Great.

Announced only two years ago as part of some insane lineup of Marvel cartoons, M.O.D.O.K. is the only one that made it to air. No one will ever known exactly what the Tigra/Dazzler show was going to be like, but we can now safely say that M.O.D.O.K. is awesome! Driven by the wit and voice talents of comedian Patton Oswalt, M.O.D.O.K. is a darn fun show and can easily hold its giant head high in today’s wild TV landscape. This is a quality show.

Join me after the jump for my review and thoughts on the M.O.D.O.K. TV show, now available for streaming on Hulu. Expect FULL SPOILERS for the show. And feel free to share your own thoughts in the comments.

The 6 Funkiest Knock-Off M.O.D.O.K.s

Against all odds, the M.O.D.O.K. TV show arrives on Hulu this week! The only survivor of that wave of wacky Hulu shows Marvel TV announced a couple years ago, M.O.D.O.K. looks to be a fun and super-weird family comedy starring Patton Oswalt. It all sounds great to me! And to celebrate, we’re gonna look at some funky M.O.D.O.K.s!

Looks just like Patton Oswalt!

M.O.D.O.K. stands for “Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing”. He’s been around since the late 1960s, a creation of Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. And as you can see, he’s this giant head dude in a mechanized chair! Heck, he was the big bad villain in that recent failed Avengers video game. The dude has chops. He’s put in the work over the decades. And a new TV show starring him as a suburban dad sounds like the apex of his career!

Over the years, there have been a ton of knock-off M.O.D.O.K.s in comics. With an acronym for a name, it’s easy to come up with knock-offs. And we’re going to take a look at the best ones! Join me after the jump for some M.O.D.O.K. madness!

Prepare for M.O.D.O.K. TV!

Against all odds, the MODOK cartoon show is coming to Hulu very soon! Patton Oswalt’s take on the big-headed villain is the only show to survive that weird lineup of announced Marvel cartoons from a couple years ago. Could any of them have been good? Who knows! But MODOK does look legitimately funny.

I’m a big Patton Oswalt fan, as I assume most people are. And yeah, this looks good. Some funny jokes. Some cool guest appearances. A solid concept. I’ve seen a clip or two here or there and it looks great! Here’s hoping its even a fraction as hilarious as the Harley Quinn cartoon.

MODOK arrives on Hulu on Ma 21!

The MODOK TV Show is Coming in May!

Once upon a time, Marvel announced a whole lineup of weird and eclectic shows for Hulu. Remember the Dazzler/Tigra show? Or Hit Monkey? What a time to be alive. Anyway, the only one that’s still standing is a Patton Oswalt-driven MODOK show! And here’s a new trailer!

This could be good. This could be funny. I’m a huge Patton Oswalt fan, so that’s a plus. The animation looks really fun, and I like some of the humor. Cartoons are brilliant these days. If this show is a fraction as fun as Harley Quinn, it would be special. So I’m going to get my hopes up and hope this MODOK show is worthwhile.

MODOK comes to Hulu on May 21.

There’s Going to be a New LEGO Helicarrier for Me to Purchase!

I have been fairly good this quarantine in that I haven’t splurged on a bunch of expensive LEGO just to pass the time. I did buy a couple of sets, but I waited at least a month! Well it looks like the horizon has plenty in store for an old sap like me.

There’s going to be a new, smaller LEGO Avengers helicarrier!

LEGO Helicarrier New 01

Why yes, that is a mini, buildable MODOK!

It looks a little awkward, having to shrink down to a more manageable size. But it still looks like a beauty worthy of building.

The set isn’t available yet, but you can set a bookmark and check out some more pictures on its LEGO webpage. The $119 price tag isn’t too bad. Between this set and the upcoming Razor Crest from The Mandalorian, I’m going to be down about $250 in the near future.

More excitedly, this new helicarrier is far more manageable than the previous LEGO helicarrier, which was a monstrous beast for $350. I never did splurge on that one.
