The highly-anticipated Marvel’s Avengers game has recently released MODOK’s official design. The announcement came from the voice actor, Usman Ally, who portrays MODOK’s character.
Developed by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix, the game aims to defeat the primary antagonist, MODOK. Marvel’s Avengers will soon be accessible on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Google Stadia, and PC. In the meantime, the beta versions of the game are now available. The first beta launched on August 7, and the succeeding ones launched on August 14 and August 21.
MODOK’s visual design unveiled
In a Twitter post, Usman Ally finally revealed what MODOK would look like, and it does not disappoint. The visual design is pretty impressive because of its traditional and modern vibes. MODOK represent a classic villain, but powerful enough to take on the avengers. Moreover, looking at his character in the comics, a lot of similarities have been adapted into the game.
Yes. So pleased to announce that I joined the @PlayAvengers and Marvel Universe voicing #MODOK and George Tarleton. I’ve played a lot of villains in my life. But this one was EPIC! pic.twitter.com/0KsvclPwJP

In the comics, MODOK is well-remembered because of his swollen head, tiny limbs, and purple-colored body. Also, MODOK relies on his hoverchair to move around. His new design, however, is far more advanced. He is more threatening because of his giant robot hands that can crush down enemies.
Talking to ComicBook, Usman Ally shared his thoughts about his character in the game. He said:
“When Shaun first talked to me about the character, I had no familiarity with M.O.D.O.K and so I was like sure, yeah. He was like, you’re going to be the villain… and Shaun and I worked together in a capacity where I played a villain for him before, so I understand the language, and so I said great, so who is it and what do they look like, that kind of stuff. He was like, you’re going to be this really big head at some point, and I was like oh… so it was definitely a bit of a shock, but really I think it’s the journey of the character that is the coolest part of the whole thing.”
MODOK might appear in Marvel Cinematic Universe
Although MODOK is a prominent character in the comics, he has little representation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. However, there were rumors that the classic character will finally appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister in the popular Game of Thrones will take on the role. Unfortunately, the plan never worked out, and it might take years before MODOK lands in movies.
