Prepare for the weird side of Marvel

On Monday Hulu announced that it is launching four animated Marvel series. Not only that, but it’s diving deep into the Marvel archives and pulling out some real weirdness.

M.O.D.O.K. as a family man? Seriously?

Of course, the one everyone is focusing on is Howard the Duck. I’ve already seen people lamenting this because they only know him from the disaster of a film, but believe me, there is a lot you can do with Howard.

When he first appeared in the comics, he was very much an anti-establishment commentary with political and societal undercurrents running throughout. As he was from another world it allowed the creators to run wild with him, and they quite often did.

It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out on screen, but I’m personally hoping they go wild here. This is a great opportunity to redeem Howard.
