The M.O.D.O.K. Mug
Available From: ThinkGeek
Fun fact about Jack Kirby's greatest creation: When the super-scientists of Advanced Idea Mechanics turned George Tarleton into a giant head with itty bitty arms and legs in a rocket chair, he was originally known as MODOC! It was only after a design flaw that he deviated from his original purpose and reinvented himself as a being that was Only for Killing. That original purpose?
Why, he was a Mental Organism Designed Only for Coffee, naturally.
This, at least, is the premise that those bacon-loving merchandisers over at ThinkGeek have used to bring us one of the best gifts for those Marvel Maniacs on your list: A coffee mug shaped like MODOK.
There's really nothing I can add to that description to make it sound better, but it's worth noting that in addition to being a pretty great likeness that's also in scale with any Marvel Legends figures, M.U.G.D.O.K. holds up to 20 ounces of your preferred beverage (over twice the usual capacity of the average coffee cup), or you can use it as a decoration to hold pencils, pens and plans for ridding the world of Captain America and Iron Man.
And if you're reading this today (Cyber Monday!!
), ThinkGeek's got free shipping with no minimums! It's the perfect time to stock up on drinkware shaped like fictional genocidal maniacs!
