MODOK is one of those characters that has always freaked me the F**K out.  A giant head, with tiny arms, and a rocket strapped to his ass, are the makings of nightmares that plagued me for years when I was in my early teens.  Now Marvel has cranked the creep factor up to 11 with the reveal that MODOK got a set of spider legs for Christmas thanks to Gabriel Hardman with input from Jeff Parker.

Looking at Hardman’s designs, the most striking addition is easily M.O.D.O.K.’s creepy spider-like legs. “There will be a modular aspect to his armor that we haven’t seen before,” Hardman teased.

“It’s a new age, and we need a new M.O.D.O.K. who works in new ways,” added Parker. “This one will get out and interact in a way the previous model didn’t. And he’s a bit of a charmer.”

I now know why I need to down a handle before I go to be every night…

    He looks like a “mini me” version of Mojo.

    What ever happened to M.O.D.O.G.? I remember them making a big deal about the redesign and the name change. Personally, I like the old M.O.D.O.K.

    Is he now going to be the big bad at the end of a Superman movie written by Kevin Smith?

    the love child of doc ock and mojo. i agree with MaximusRift and Xybec Katta. i like the old M.o.d.o.k. if it’s not broke don’t mess with it. now if this is the old M.o.d.o.k with an enhanced mobile chair that still flies but can also move via the legs, i might be interested but if new character, not for me, no thanks.
