Being a superhero definitely has its perks. While the job comes with its own set of pressure (let's be honest here, which job doesn't?) it also has its fair share of glory, glitz and glamour. But in a world obsessed with superheroes, the question has to be asked — what about the bad guys?

For a look into the real-life of villainy, get ready to check out 'Marvel's M.O.D.O.K.'
