Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K., or simply M.O.D.O.K., is an upcoming American adult animated stop motion streaming television series created for Hulu by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt, based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name. The series was produced by Marvel Studios through Marvel Television and Marvel Animation, with Blum serving as showrunner.
Patton Oswalt stars as M.O.D.O.K., a supervillain struggling to handle his company and family. Aimee Garcia, Ben Schwartz, Melissa Fumero, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Beck Bennett, Jon Daly, and Sam Richardson also star. M.O.D.O.K. was officially announced with a series order at Hulu in February 2019, as part of a group of series based on Marvel characters that were intended to lead to a crossover special titled The Offenders, with it being produced by Marvel Television and Marvel Animation. Oversight of the series was moved to Marvel Studios in December 2019 when Marvel Television was folded into that company. The cast was announced in January 2020, with writing and recording completed later. Stop-motion animation for the series is provided by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.
After spending years failing to gain control of the world and battling superheroes along the way, M.O.D.O.K., having been removed from his company A.I.M. after it falls into bankruptcy and is sold to the rivaling GRUMBL, begins to deal with his tainting family while facing a mid-life crisis.
MODOK first appeared in Tales of Suspense #93–94 (September–October 1967), and became a recurring foe for the superhero Captain America, where he was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Writer Mike Conroy stated “Inevitably, he (MODOK) returned to plague Captain America, whose physical perfection he so resented.”
