When I last left the subject of “March MODOK Madness”, I had just finished the 2011 edition of the month-long oddityodyssey, in which I had used my modest photoshop ability (what I prefer to call ‘photoslop’) to contribute a bunch of meme mashups. In 2012, my own March was Mad in other ways and I missed the MODOK-a-thon, leaving others to put up some higher quality stuff…

Genevieve Tsai calls this a ‘MODOK Helmet’ she made for her boyfriend, I call it an ‘almost complete Halloween costume’ (with a black or greenscreen-green bodysuit)…

Simon Wilches captured the look of MODOK as drawn by Ronald Searle…

Lance Pigeon made this excellent 3D rendering of MODOK and the Hulk. Somebody show this to Joss Whedon so he can put ol’ MO in the next Avengers movie!
modok12-4

Paul Melancon did a Charlie Brown MODOK with the warning “This is what happens when you pull the football away one too many times!” Honestly, I thought he’d be more likely to ‘Hulk Out’.

From Henning Larson, what do you get when you cross MODOK with a unicorn? Well, it’s not my worst nightmare, but definitely in my Top 10. Just don’t let the unicorn webcomickers see this. (“Heavenly Mindblasts”? No no no.)

Adam Koford, Laugh-Out-Loud-Cat-Herder and designer of several of the funny t-shirts I have to explain to people, made a “Manic MODOK”…

Kelly Hamilton wandered a little too close to the cute zone with MODOG…
modok12-8

Brady Russell came up with a new (and very topical) purpose for our MO… “Mobile Organism Designed Only for Kickstarter”…

Chad A. Huskey used software designed only for drafting to make up MODOK Potato Head…

And then some really serious comics artists got in on the act, as two groups doing weekly theme challenges dedicated a week during March to MODOK.
The appropriately named “Challengers Assemble”…

And “The Line It Is Drawn”, whose work I have already noted, went MODOK mashup mad!
liid-modok

Yes one of the LIID artists did Charlie Sheen and did him much better than I had the year before. So with “the line drawn” and “the bar raised”, would I dare make my own contributions in 2013? Well, first I had some unfinished business to deal with… two contributions from 2011 that had been lost in the email…

First, a now-dated reference to a certain movie that was quite prominent in 2011…
modok2013-1
(If you remember the scene I was referencing, you’ll know that’s some good $#!+)

And the MODOK mashup that I was AMAZED nobody else had done…
modok2013-2
(When you think about it, Elmer Fudd has nearly as large a hat size as MODOK…)

For new 2013 content, while the site credited me alliteratively as “meme master”, I was more “predominantly punning”…
modok2013-3

Do you remember the British youth fad of the 1960s called “The Mods”? (If you do, you’re as old as I am, and I’m sorry) Anyway, one of The Mods’ trademarks were tricked-out motor scooters, so here’s a “MOD MODOK” on a scooter.
modok2013-4

And then there’s that other Web phenomenon with similar initials: “Machine Of Death, OK?” (well, in the illustration I filched for this book cover, MODOK looks not OK – less fierce and more upset – remember, if you’re not part of the machine, you’re its target…)

And then I saw the promotional video for the upcoming Disney Channel ‘TV Event’ (their words) “Phineas & Ferb: MISSION MARVEL” in which the characters from that cartoon meet up with some Marvel superheroes AND supervillains. And guess which Marvel Baddie showed up in TWO promo stills… yep, our March Madman, MODOK. Which got my brain working. (Always a bad thing) If you didn’t know, a major character on Phineas & Ferb is Perry the Platypus, a seemingly quiet pet who sneaks away on secret missions as “Agent P” in most of the episodes’ ‘B-story’. In Agent P mode, Perry is seriously badass… so he HAD to be the one P&F character I’d put into my old reliable MODOK cutout (from the Mark Palm remake of the Jack Kirby original). And yes, I HAD to make it look like a piece of leaked art from the production (with a big overlaid “NOT”)… BTW, it’s not easy to make a portmanteau name for this character: PHODOC? Platypus Hybrid Organism Designed for One Cartoon?

But enough about me… the “Line It Is Drawn” crew committed to another batch of impressive MODOKontributions…
liid-modok2

and set the standard for quality… and crossovers.

Hey, remember the ’80s musical reference in my first post about March MODOK Madness? Well, Ryan Kavanaugh has unwittingly illustrated it..
modok2013-10

There have been several submissions (including one from me) of “MODOKtor Who” (and yet none of MODOKtor House?) but nobody has been as complete as James Stowe in giving us all 11 MODOKtors…
modok2013-15

Stowe also brought us the MODOKTOPUS…
mofok2013-14

But the ultimate Who crossover (at least for Whovians who know their Time Lord backstory) has to be this one mashing up MODOK with Davros, original creator of those recurring robotic baddies, the Daleks… complete with an especially odd mashup of the 11th Doctor with Captain America. (Yes, I KNOW he’s sci-fi’s most British alien… explain it to artist John Hazard)
modok2013-11

Because as grotesque and frightening as the character MODOK is SUPPOSED to be, for me, the standout contributions to the MMM are the wacky ones, like the one from seriously silly webcomic artist and Master Of Mashups Lar Desouza, making a monkey out of MODOK…
modok2014-12

…or “On the Grind” webcomicker George Gant’s MODOKool-Aid Man!
modok2013-9

…or Keith Vincent (kinda) saluting the 15th anniversary of the Powerpuff Girls cartoons with MojoJODOK…
modok2013-13

…or Kelly Hamilton’s bouncing (baby?) animated-gif-MODOK…
modok2013-16

…or Monty Michaelis’ reversible MODOK…
modok2013-17

…or Joseph V. Barrile’s 8-bit pixel MODOK (original size 31×36)…
modok2013-20

…or Gavin DeLint flashing back to one of the craziest non-superhero comics of the past… Is that “Milk and Cheese”? No, it’s…
modok2013-18

…or Brandon L Dawley’s MODOK mug getting some interference from a Luke Cage action figure…
modok2013-19

…or a Child’s Garden of MODOKs, from Max Borges and “Kevin’s Kids”, who will probably grow up to be great cartoonists… or killing machines…
