I actually like the art style. I'm am curious why the went with stop motion. I guess the figured Robot Chicken is popular adult animated show so go with that studio. Better than being a Family Guy clone I guess

Yeah, some quick observations that the SYFY Wire interview sort of glossed over:


  • Wonder-Man ◊, The Melter ◊, and possibly Valkyire ◊ making appearances. The Super Apatiod will also appear, longing for freedom from M.O.D.O.K.'s family so he can make art.
  • M.O.D.O.K.'s bi-racial Latinx family is original and living in suburban New Jersey:
    • Lou, M.O.D.O.K and Jodie's test tube son, really sounds and acts like a "Ben Schwartz" character. He's an optimistic oddball.
    • Melissa is M.O.D.O.K's first child, and a Queen Bee Gender Flip take on her father with daddy issues and supervillainess aspirations. The cast teases a messed up, yet heartwarming bonding moment with her dad in an episode.
    • Jodie, as M.O.D.O.K.'s wife, is touted as having a progressive arc when realizing that M.O.D.O.K.'s stubbornness is affecting the family (compared to other sitcom mothers), going from "housewife to supervillain" without realizing. She's an entrepreneur and hosts a Mommy blog.
  • Monica Rappaccini, who you may remember from the Marvel's Avengers video game, will be the workplace nemesis and have a "science-off" in Episode 5.
  • Patton was surprised about Marvel's hands-off nature, even allowing them to pull elements from the X-Men side of Marvel (which they teased twice throughout). They compare their hodgepodge idea pull being similar to The LEGO Batman Movie or Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
  • Ben Schwartz really wants to voice Slapstick.

Clips were funny. What stood out to me was Oswalt saying they were allowed to use characters from the X-Men corner of Marvel, something that even surprised him.

This is the first Marvel cartoon actually using X-Men characters since what...the first season of Avengers Assemble back in 2013? Or whenever was Wolverine's last guest spot in Ultimate Spider-Man?

I'm hyped to see Simon again as a hero in a cartoon again :D.

I thought we were getting classic Valkyrie but unsurprisingly it's MCU Valkyrie. I hope she's not stunt-casted again...

I'm 90% certain it was Wolverine's guest appearance in season 2 of Ultimate Spider-Man with Captain America and Arcade.

Did anyone from Super Mansion work on this? The look of the show definitely reminded me a lot of what I've seen from that one. I do think it looks better than I initially expected. Though it's not what I've wanted, my fingers are crossed that we can at least get a decent looking show.

It's nice to see the Fox characters getting used more and more in animation again. Please no more character embargoes ever.
