This post is why I think Dave over at Dave’s Longbox should write comics, or, even better, should write for Days of Our Lives, my wife’s favorite soap opera. His casting of Days character John Black as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent is pure genius:
John Black (into phone): “MODOK, you scumbag. You better pray Marlena isn’t hurt or no force on Earth will save you from me. You read me, freak?”
MODOK: “Brave words, Agent John Black, but soon the city of Salem will belong to MODOK! If only Marlena had loved me when I was human, when I was a fragile psychiatric patient with no memory. Now it is too late for you both. Ha ha ha ha ha!”
John Black (trembling with rage): “MO-DAAAWK!”
When he slicks his hair back and puts on a black shirt, he is unstoppable.
