M.O.D.O.K. was once George Tarleton, a man of unspectacular intelligence who was used by terrorist organization A.I.M. (Advanced Idea Mechanics) in experiments to enhance mental powers.
The procedure initially transformed him into M.O.D.O.C., the Mental Organism Designed Only for Computing. However, he quickly realized that computing is totally lame and seized leadership of A.I.M. by force, renaming himself M.O.D.O.K. -- the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing.
Alongside his incredible intelligence, M.O.D.O.K. possesses powerful psychic abilities, as well as an arsenal of weaponry concealed in his hoverchair. His sole weakness: his tiny, Tyrannosaurus-esque limbs.
M.O.D.O.K.'s inherently ridiculous nature makes him perfect for comedic takes on the character, as seen in Marvel's What The--?!
shorts, the Marvel Adventures
comic book line (in which, to tone him down for younger audiences, he becomes the Mental Organism Designed Only for Conquest
), and the Super Hero Squad
cartoon and video game series. Meanwhile, his intelligence and aforementioned love of killing make him highly usable in serious stories, such as his recent alliance with the evil genius team The Intelligencia in a Hulk
storyline. Truly, M.O.D.O.K. is a character with no limits. Except for the reach of his arms.
