At face price, Aimee Garcia sees her “Lucifer” and “MODOK” characters as polar opposites. “Ella is so filled with gentle and a large love computer virus — an enormous hugger and a Pollyanna,” she mentioned of her “Lucifer” personality. “She’s nonjudgmental and curious, and sees the best in other folks, and everyone seems to be her possible best buddy till confirmed differently. In the meantime, Jodie begins out the primary season of ‘MODOK’ because the voice of reason why, the loving spouse, the mother, and abruptly she turns into, personally, a worse supervillain than MODOK. So I do not in reality see similarities…”
That mentioned, upon digging deeper, Garcia unearths a singular connection between the 2 characters, one this is slowly serving to alternate the face of tv. “In their very own manner, they’re each trailblazers,” says Garcia. “With Jodie being an originated Latina personality within the Surprise Universe and an impartial girl who unearths her occupation later in existence after she’s turn into a mother. In animation, I don’t believe we see that regularly. And then Ella is without doubt one of the few girls of colour in STEM on TV, and I am simply so proud to constitute a Latina scientist. And at one level she used to be, I believe, the one Latina scientist personality out of the 200-plus presentations at the air on the time, which boggles my thoughts. So I believe they are each, in their very own manner, trailblazers … excluding in several instructions.”
The first season of “Surprise’s MODOK” is recently streaming on Hulu.
