WHAT’S GOING ON HERE?

I’m Ekko. I’ve been blogging since 2001. I started with music, then added some humor and miscellany, and now also write extensively about comic books. These are my lifelong loves.

If you want to submit your music or art for consideration, please e-mail me ekalett@yahoo.com. I read and listen to all submissions, but only review the ones that I really like. I do not review music released on a label that is part of the RIAA. This is an independent site.

This is the “home page” of my site. If you’re only interested in specific topics, please click on the topic from the menu bar at the top of this page.

AND SO IT BEGINS: THE EVOLUTION OF MODOK PART ONE

The evolution of my favorite character, M.O.D.O.K. (or MODOK to his friends). And what an evolution it is! I don’t think there have been any Marvel villains who have inspired more completely insane spin-off variants than ol’ MODOK.

And I’m starting with his first appearance in 1967, all the way through to the end of that decade. I’m pretty sure I’ve found every single canon appearance of MODOK, but if you see I’m missing one, please let me know.
AIM hates MODOKSo, MODOK started in the pages of Tales of Suspense issue #94, in which the evil A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) steal Captain America’s shield and try to break it apart to analyze it. The AIM scientists keep griping about their boss, some dude named MODOK.
FIRST APPEARANCE MODOK
The big reveal is that MODOK is a victim of AIM who rose up and took over the organization. He’s an encephalitic who shoots laser beams out of his forehead. Remember: This was 1967, when creativity wasn’t corporate or common. You have to love Jack Kirby.
MODOK DIES
And in the end, he lay dying. But he was too cool to die.

He’d be back, and back, and back.

And this series will follow him.
