Let's be honest; M.O.D.O.K. is nobody's favourite supervillain. His colossal cranium makes him look like a cross between Mr. Potato Head and Humpty Dumpty.
So why the heck is Square Enix making him the central antagonist of their upcoming game, Marvel's The Avengers? Why are they scrapping the bottom of the barrel when there are so many fantastic villains in Marvel lore? I mean, M.O.D.O.K. a B-list baddie at best, right?
But as the old saying goes; never judge an encephalitic-headed man by his appearance. For nearly 60 years, M.O.D.O.K. has been one of the most consistent threats to the superhero community.
His intelligence is on the same level as a supercomputer and his psychic powers are almost on par with Professor X. He has an array of armies (living and robotic), a seemingly endless supply of weapons, and secret lairs all over the planet. He usually battles Captain America but he's fought pretty much everyone; Iron Man, Hulk, Deadpool, Thor, Captain Marvel; he's faced them all. (I mean, he lost but still.)
Here are ten things everyone needs to know about M.O.D.O.K.
