The Brood are one of many deadlier threats within the Marvel comics, and undoubtedly among the many ickiest. A sadistic horde of red-eyed, sharp-toothed, nasty-looking alien beasts which are vaguely harking back to the Xenomorphs of the Alien franchise, this hive-minded race has conquered quite a few worlds and is a continuing risk to whichever group is unlucky sufficient to cross their path. They reproduce by implanting their younger in residing creatures, and the host finally (and painfully) transforms into a brand new member of the Brood. As such, they’re the final alien race that you just’d need invite to a celebration, even one which takes place in “Marvel’s MODOK” — which, in fact, is type of the purpose.
By the way, the Brood is mostly related to the X-Males, so in case you have an affinity for fan theories, this may very well be seen as one in every of Marvel Studios’ reveals’ latest, lighthearted allusions to the mutants. Provided that the occasions of “MODOK” are unlikely to be canon within the MCU correct, nonetheless, this nearly actually is not a affirmation that Wolverine and his teammates are on their method to meet the opposite Marvel heroes. Nonetheless, together with different X-Males Easter eggs in “MODOK,” it is a enjoyable nod that reveals Marvel Studios is keenly conscious of the X-themed nook of its huge IP world.
