Earlier this month it was announced that Hulu is expanding its Marvel output beyond Runaways with four new adult animated series – Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey and Tigra and Dazzler Show – building to a limited series team-up entitled The Offenders. Check out the official synopses for the five shows here:
Marvel’s Howard the Duck is trapped in a world he never made, but America’s favorite fighting fowl hopes to return home with the help of his unstoppable gal pal Beverly before the evil Dr. Bong can turn him into the crispiest dish on the menu. Writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis will also Executive Produce alongside Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s Hit-Monkey tells a tale of a wronged Japanese snow monkey, mentored by the ghost of an American Assassin as he cuts a wide swath through the Tokyo Underworld in this darkly cinematic and brutally funny revenge saga. Writers Josh Gordon and Will Speck will Executive Produce alongside Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K. centers around an egomaniacal supervillain with a really big head and a really little body who struggles to maintain control of his evil organization and his demanding family. Writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt will also Executive Produce alongside Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s Tigra and Dazzler Show is a story about two woke superheroes and best friends, Tigra and Dazzler, as they fight for recognition among powered people who make up the eight million stories in Los Angeles. Writers Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler will also Executive Produce alongside Jeph Loeb.
Marvel’s The Offenders is a story in which nobody asked them to, and we’d be better off if they didn’t, but M.O.D.O.K., Dazzler, Tigra, Hit-Monkey, and Howard the Duck are all forced to team up in order to save the world and certain parts of the universe. Jeph Loeb will Executive Produce.
