Mini Bio: M.O.D.O.K. started out life as a normal human named George Tarleton. As an adult, he worked at A.I.M. (Advanced Ideas Mechanics, if that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the company Killian works with in Iron Man 3), and ended up being a test subject for medical experimentation.

The experiments left him with an oversized head and stunted body, meaning that he needed a hover chair to get around. After the experiments, he killed his superiors and took over A.I.M. and became the enemy of Captain America.

Over the years, M.O.D.O.K. has fought the Avengers, Namor, and various other heroes, he’s been killed and resurrected, cloned, imprisoned, and has generally caused havoc for a lot of people. He doesn’t appear in too many comics, but he’s always a fan favourite when he does!
