Marvel and Hulu have announced a new partnership. The streaming service will launch four shows starring lesser known Marvel characters, culminating in a special known as The Offenders. The first series will be Howard the Duck, followed by MODOK, Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler. All four shows will be animated adventures.
From writers Kevin Smith and Dave Willis, Howard the Duck will see Marvel's favorite fowl get trapped in a new world and try to find his way back home with the help of his girlfriend Beverly before Dr. Bong can turn him into a tasty treat.
MODOK will see the character try to take back control of his villainous organization while also trying to handle the demands of his family; the series will be penned by Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt.
Tigra & Dazzler will be written by Chelsea Handler and Erica Rivinoja and will star the two "woke" superheroes. Living in LA, the pair decide to fight for name recognition among other superpowered people, while also trying to make it in a city filled with people trying to make a name for themselves.
Josh Gordon and Will Speck's Hit-Monkey follows a Japanese snow monkey trained by the ghost of an American assassin, who hopes to get vengeance on the Tokyo criminal underworld.
Once all four shows finish their first seasons, all their stars will unite to save the Universe in The Offenders.
