M.O.D.O.K. is an upcoming series from Marvel Animation. The series will be the first to focus on the character, though he was a main character for much of Iron Man.

Story

The titular villain has run A.I.M. into the ground as leader. He sells the organization to a Silicon Valley tech giant where he must balance his new work environment along with his crumbling family life.

Background

The series was announced on February 11th, 2019 at the Television Critics Association press tour. It will released along with Hit Monkey, leading up to the crossover series The Offenders. This will be similar to Marvel Studios's Netflix series. It would have included Howard the Duck and Tigra & Dazzler before their cancellation.

The series will be written by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt. Blum, Oswalt, and Jeph Loeb will be executive producers.

The series will follow M.O.D.O.K. as he struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family.[1]

Oswalt will also voiced the character. "I could not be more excited for you guys to see what we do with M.O.D.O.K. He's the character I was, sadly, born to play."

Blum said of the series, "Who is M.O.D.O.K. to me? Well, you have to start at his creation. I find M.O.D.O.K. to be just as iconic as all the other classic Jack Kirby-Stan Lee collaborations. Kirby’s design is the stuff of nightmares yet he's also somehow... slightly adorable? Stan Lee wrote him as this amazing flawed character, always being undone by his inflated ego and thin skin. Over the years he's been portrayed as both a menace and a joke and I think our show is much more interested in exploring him as a human being. A human being who's also a Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing. At the end of the day M.O.D.O.K. is a giant-headed, petulant, insecure, egomaniac with zero social skills. And I for one find that incredibly relatable."[2]
