M.O.D.O.K Has His Eye On The Prize!

MODOK's getting his own book?  Here we go.

This summer, the biggest, most exciting criminal heist is happening right here in the pages of Marvel Comics’ Super-Villain Team-Up/M.O.D.O.K’s 11 #1. As the “head” of Marvel’s most unusual and most-wanted group of villains ever assembled, M.O.D.O.K. has tasked his comrades with acquiring such power that the big M will never have to worry ever again. Of course, the best laid plans of mice, men and M.O.D.O.K.’s rarely go as hoped, and the villain finds himself in a race with the rest of the Marvel Universe villains to gain this ultimate prize! Writer Fred Van Lente and artist Francis Portela, along with cover artist Eric Powell, bring you a comic in the Mighty Marvel tradition of fun, fun and more fun!

“Super-Villain Team Up/M.O.D.O.K’s 11 is something I don't think the Marvel Universe has ever had: a heist caper,” Van Lente explained. “But of course, since this is the Marvel Universe, our band of B- and Z-list villains aren’t knocking over a bank or a casino-- but the impenetrable fortress of an incredibly powerful cabal of temporal cartographers from the end of time to steal a weapon that has the power to destroy all life on Earth as we know it ... and which all the other villains in the Marvel U can't wait to get their hands on.

“It's almost its own unique genre: ‘supercrime.’

“Plus, of course, I love to give some really underutilized characters like Puma, The Spot, and yes, even M.O.D.O.K., their time to shine, so it's been a lot of fun for me in that sense as well.”

This July, getting in is the easy part…but getting out alive with the prize intact? That’s what’s gonna make Super-Villain Team-Up/M.O.D.O.K’s 11 the can’t-miss super-villain team-up of the year!
