In an era of over-hype, where there are teaser trailers for the release of teaser trailers, the Doctor Strange trailer kinda snuck up on us. After the break, get your first glimpse of Marvel’s next star in the making.
If you had told me six months ago that a story about a killer organism that was essentially a giant head with arms and legs would be one of the best Secret Wars books, I would have laughed at you. Especially after I read and hated the first M.O.D.O.K. short story in Secret Wars Battleworld #1. (Though, in fairness, that was a different M.O.D.O.K..)
But here we are, and M.O.D.O.K. Assassin has really risen near the top of the heap. Especially impressive given my low expectations. I currently have it ranked 18th on the Secret Wars Power Rankings. M.O.D.O.K. Assassin got better with every issue and is one of the few books that successfully landed the ending.
After the cut I’ll take a CliffsNotes (Coles Notes for my Canadian brethren) style look at M.O.D.O.K. Assassin #1, M.O.D.O.K. Assassin #2, M.O.D.O.K. Assassin #3, M.O.D.O.K. Assassin #4 and you guessed it M.O.D.O.K. Assassin #5.
