THE EVOLUTION OF MODOK PART 17: MODOK in 2007

IMG_8807

Up to 2007, MODOK would appear in one or two stories a year at most. But in the late aughties, we experienced a renaissance of MODOK. For one thing, he got his own book: Super-Villain Team-Up: MODOK’s 11, by Fred Van Lente and Francis Portella, in which he led a team consisting of, among others, The Armadillo, Deadly Nightshade, Chameleon, Puma, and Rocket Racer, in a campaign to get revenge on his ex-girlfriend. In addition to getting his own book, he was the main villain in the 2007 attempt to revive Howard the Duck. Howard got a four-issue miniseries at the end of 2007 by Ty Templeton and Juan Bobillo. It didn’t suck, but it wasn’t great, either.

Wow! What a great year!
