If Avengers: Infinity War's Christopher Markus had his way, M.O.D.O.K would be in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by now. According to the screenwriter, who co-write the film with Stephen McFeely, he would love to include the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing; he just hasn't found the right place yet.
"I've wanted to put M.O.D.O.K. in, and it's very hard to go 'here's the supporting character the giant head,'" Markus explained on Kevin Smith and Marc Bernadin's Fat Man on Batman podcast. "And then we're going to get on with the story. We just came to him for information. Like you kind of have to design the whole movie around the guy with the giant head."
"I have love for M.O.D.O.K. and I still think properly done he'd be terrifying. Like you look all the way down the hall and like this huge head comes around the corner and starts coming and... oh, it would be awesome," he added.
One of Marvel's stranger villains, M.O.D.O.K. was introduced in Stan Lee and Jack Kirby's Tales of Suspense #93 back in 1967. M.O.D.O.K. was created when A.I.M.'s Scientist Supreme used technician George Tarleton as a test subject, transforming him into a living computer. The experiments mutated him into a massive head with tiny arms; he also gained psionic powers and superhuman calculating ability. He often faced off against Captain America and S.H.I.E.L.D.
