Looks like our favorite giant headed villain is getting his own mini-series for the Secret Wars saga. M.O.D.O.K. (wow that’s annoying to continuously type out) runs a world called Killville, and it’s where he gets his thrills. Christ Yost had the following to say:
“The fun here is showing how M.O.D.O.K. stands out against some of the worst that the Marvel Universe has to offer, “It’s good to be bad’ is kind of the mission statement here. Can M.O.D.O.K. grow past his design? Would anyone want him to? Those are some big lofty theme-y questions, but let’s be clear…you’re going to see M.O.D.O.K. kill a bunch of people.”
Marvel came out with the Women of Marvel covers and comics not too long ago (which you can find here) and they’ve one upped themselves with an all-female team. Writing dynamo G. Willow Wilson had the following to say.
“We’ve purposefully assembled a team composed of different charactersfrom disparate parts of the Marvel U, with very different power sets, identities and ideologies.”
She-Hulk, Dazzler, Medusa, Nico Minoru among others will be appearing and be members. G. Willow Wilson is one of my favorite writers and her run at Ms. Marvel has been nothing short of groundbreaking. It also returned me to my younger days and reminded me of what I first loved about comics, especially Peter Parker and teen anxiety.
Read on for more details and great images. I can’t wait to know more about this title. And, I’ll admit, with Silk, Deadpool Secret Secret Wars, and this, Marvel is doing some cool things outside of Moonknight, Magneto and Punisher.
Ol’ Wade Wilson is known for being off of his rocker, but he’s been correct about a few things. Like, remember that time he tracked down Carnage and drove him mad? Ah those were the times. So, Deadpool decides that the new Secret Wars isn’t cool or quirky enough for him, so coming up, he’ll be returning to the original series. Let’s hope he gives the Beyonder a wedgie. Read on for more information and some sweet sweet images of our red and black killer for hire in Secret Secret Wars.
“Way back when, right after I had finished Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe, we were looking for something out of the ordinary as a follow up,” Bunn tells Marvel.com. “One of my first suggestions was to have Deadpool thrown back in time into the middle of the original Secret Wars limited series. At the time, we decided to go in a different direction, but the idea of having Wade playing a big, in-continuity role in the events of that series stuck with me.”
Marvel.com’s interview with Bunn expands on his excitement of inserting Deadpool into all of these classic scenes from Secret Wars, especially when he meets and interacts with the Marvel heroes from the 80’s.
“When Deadpool introduces himself to the other heroes, most of them have no idea who he is,” Bunn notes. “At least, most of them are unwilling to admit that they know him! As the battle between good and evil commences, Deadpool gets plenty of opportunities to annoy the hell out of every major hero and villain in the Marvel Universe before the festivities are done!”
This May, DEADPOOL’S SECRET SECRET WARS rudely places itself into Marvel continuity andinto comic book retailers everywhere.
