One iconic Marvel comics supervillain who is yet to make it into the MCU is the one and only MODOK. It feels like the Mental/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing’s time in the light is about to happen, though. Probably all it needs is for Marvel to find the right actor to bring such a weird character to life. And this new fan art offers a, slightly tongue-in-cheek, suggestion.
BossLogic’s latest piece of artwork imagines Parks & Recreation star Nick Offerman as MODOK in the MCU. Hilariously, the artist has taken Offerman in character as grumpy Parks department head (literally, in this case) Ron Swanson and stuck him inside MODOK’s suit.
Take a look at the result in the gallery below:

Funnily enough, another Parks & Rec star actually is about to play MODOK. Patton Oswalt – who guest-starred in an episode of the NBC sitcom – is voicing the villain in a Robot Chicken-style stop-motion animated sitcom based around the villain’s home life with his wife and kids (including his son Lou, played by another Parks alum, Ben Schwartz!). MODOK is coming to Hulu in early 2021. The official MODOK account even replied to BL’s artwork.

This incoming series shows how MODOK is often treated as a bit of a joke nowadays due to his bizarre appearance. This means he might feasibly be portrayed as a a comedic character if he ever appeared in the MCU. So Offerman could be a great choice for the role. Back in the day, he was a popular pick for the MCU’s J. Jonah Jameson. In the comments to BL’s post, some fans suggest that he might also be a great Hank McCoy AKA Beast.
According to what We Got This Covered is hearing, MODOK could be making his MCU debut very soon. But who would you like to see play him? Leave your personal pick in the comments.
