Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool: M.O.D.O.K.
This November sees the newest release for WizKids‘ Dice Masters, Marvel Dice Masters: Deadpool. The set is focused on Deadpool’s world including the X-Men and Weapon X, but the set also includes some other familiar characters and the first appearance of the Inhumans team affiliation. I’ll be reviewing a card a day until the set’s release in a few weeks. But, beyond discussing the cards and how they fit into the Dice Masters game, I’ll also focus on the characters themselves and if the card reflects their comic history.
Next up is M.O.D.O.K.: Twisted Mind, the uncommon version of the card.
Art: Joe Bennett, Captain America and the Falcon #8
Comic origin: M.O.D.O.K., an acronym for Mental/Mobile/Mechanized Organism Designed Only for Killing, first appeared in Tales of Suspense #93 in 1967 and the first full appearance was Tales of Suspense #94. The character was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
The character was originally George Tarleton a technician for A.I.M., the Advanced Idea Mechanics. He was changed with mutagenics to change him into M.O.D.O.C., the “C” for Computing.
The character has died and be revived a few times and has superhuman intelligence and a precognition like ability to predict outcomes. He has also shown psionic powers and generated force fields. Finally, his chair has tons of weapons.
Live action version: None that I know of.
Card playability: A 5 SHIELD the character is an interesting one that spins dice around. You spin M.O.D.O.K. to an opposing character’s level and that character to M.O.D.O.K.’s level. This could be interesting to get the character stronger and enters an aspect of actually wanting to roll low for M.O.D.O.K. at first. It’s something new and I can see the character being used in a draft maybe, but in a general, so far I’m not seeing it being a game change.
Final Thoughts: It’s an interesting card but one I don’t expect to see a lot of. Still, I want to see what the other two versions are like.
