M.O.D.O.K. and Genocide = M.O.D.O.G.?
Marvel.com, which recently cleaned up in the Eagle Awards as "Favorite Comics Related Website," has posted some new art today featuring one of my favorite characters in the Marvel Universe: M.O.D.O.K.
Or, more accurately, M.O.D.O.G.
Yes, everyone’s favorite Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing seems to have found himself a new hobby, as well as a new home, in Invincible Iron Man. The new version of the big-headed bugger has taken a shine to genocide instead of just garden-variety killing, according to information released about the villain’s upcoming appearance in the second issue of the Matt Fraction/Salvador Larroca series.
Marvel.com has posted samples of Larroca’s new M.O.D.O.G. art, including this great image of Iron Man dragging the ever-creepy creature around by his hair.
The thing is, I’m not sure if the decision to shift his focus from "Killing" to "Genocide" makes him more or less dangerous. With a M.O.D.O.G., at least you have a good idea of who’s on his hit list, right? But a M.O.D.O.K. – that’s a different story. He wants to kill everybody.
Unless, of course, he’s discovered the sweet serenity of regular meditation.
