Mojo, Marvel's disgusting alien villain who programs addictive TV fare throughout the universe, shows up on this weekend's episode of Disney XD's Marvel's Avengers Assemble.
Voiced by actor and radio star Ralph Garman (Joe Schmo, Family Guy), this version of Mojo is an intergalactic broadcasting master whose reality competition show pits characters against each other in a death match. The more viewers who watch, the more powerful and richer Mojo becomes. (Actually, that does sound like a few TV executives we know.)
Ultimately, Hulk and Hawkeye find themselves stuck in a match at the hands of Mojo. Other Marvel characters that make cameos in the episode include The Watchers, Rigellian Recorders, Kree, Skrulls, The Brood and Impossible Man.
Cort Lane, Marvel's vice president of animation development and supervising producer, says he's been a fan of Garman's work on Los Angeles' KROQ. Garman is a key member of the top-rated Kevin and Bean Show, where he does voices, contributes segments and anchors an hourly entertainment report. "He can do a million voices, and many of them really obnoxious, but in the best and most entertaining way," Lane says.
Garman also hosts the comedy show and podcast Hollywood Babble-On with Kevin Smith and appeared in the feature Ted.
The "Mojo World" episode of Marvel's Avengers Assemble, airs this Sunday, March 9, at 8 a.m./7c.
