Marvel’s oddest villain gets his stop-animation TV series.

M.O.D.O.K., Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing, is in charge of the villainous group A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics). M.O.D.O.K. is intent on taking over the world, there’s only one problem: He’s cash short. He has no choice but to broker a deal with the large tech company GRUMBL. Now GRUMBL has completely taken over and M.O.D.O.K. might be finding himself out of job! At the same time, he’s trying to find time to balance his family. He’s facing one of his biggest challenges: A mid-life crisis.

M.O.D.O.K. is created for TV by Patton Oswalt and Jordon Blum, and the stop-motion animation for the series is provided by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. The creative team behind Robot Chicken. This is a hilarious, adult-oriented series. There are also a lot of Easter Eggs in it for any Marvel fan!

Stoopid Buddy Stoodios does an incredible job with the stop-animation. It really just flows and keeps at a nice pace. 

Patton voices M.O.D.O.K. and he’s just perfect for it. Just this over-the-top taking over the world stuff is hilarious. He’s so on point with this character and his neurosis.

Rounding out the casts is Aimee Garcia voices M.O.D.O.K.’s wife Jodie Tarleton. She’s trying to be an independent woman and a good mother. Well acted in this series. Wendi McLendon-Covey as Monica Rappaccini, M.O.D.O.K.’s workplace arch-nemesis. Beck Bennett as Austin Van Der Sleet, who is M.O.D.O.K.’s new boss in his twenties who is from GRUMBL.

This is really a fun and silly show, but it’s definitely geared towards a more mature audience. Nevertheless, quite enjoyable. You seriously don’t want to miss this show. This show is a hit!

“Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K” premieres all episodes May 21, only on Hulu.
