This just may be the most disappointing news of the week. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of giant-headed genetically-modified killing machines as the next person, but although the reveal of Marvel's new villain MODOG - his name is an acronym for Mobile Organism Designed Only for Genocide - may look very impressive, it's nonetheless a sad day to see that he is still (relatively) human and incredibly un-dog-like. More pictures of the 'Dog under the jump.
The villain, who'll appear in the new Invincible Iron Man series, is an update of old Captain America badguy MODOK (Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing) courtesy of Matt Fraction and Salvador Larocca. Apparently, I wasn't the only one disappointed by the lack of bark action, either, if the last line of the official PR is anything to go by:
And for those of you who expected M.O.D.O.G. to be some sort of big-headed, killer canine monstrosity...well, that's just preposterous. All hail M.O.D.O.G.!
