Scheduled to premiere in the US on Hulu on May 21, the show centres on the titular megalomaniac, who – after years of failed attempts to defeat Earth's Mightiest Heroes and take over the world – has run his evil organization A.I.M. into the ground.

Things go from bad to worse for him when he's sacked as A.I.M's leader in the midst of trying to save his marriage. Will the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing overcome his greatest challenge yet?

M.O.D.O.K premieres in the US on Hulu on Friday, May 21. It is yet to find a UK broadcaster.
