Mojo

(pop culture)
Rivaling the Blob in obesity, Mojo is unsurpassed in sheer craziness by any other major X-Men villain. Created by writer Ann Nocenti and artist Arthur Adams in Marvel Comics' Longshot #3 (1986), Mojo rules Mojoworld, a planet in another dimension. He is one of the Spineless Ones, grotesque beings that are incapable of standing erect; instead, Mojo rides a mechanical platform that can float in the air. Mojo can fire bolts of mystical force from his hands and magically control the minds of others. Mojo compelled a scientist named Arize to genetically engineer a race of humanoid slaves. One of them, Longshot, led a slave rebellion but was forced to flee to Earth. Mojo pursued him there and began plotting to conquer the planet, only to be defeated by Longshot. Utilizing Mojo in various X-Men–related comics, writer Chris Claremont emphasized that Mojo heads his world's entertainment industry, pacifying the masses through movies and television. Claremont depicted Mojo as a mad producer, continually seeking to ensnare the X-Men into acting in his shows. (Appropriately, Mojo has also appeared in X-Men: The Animated Series, 1992–1997.) Aided by the X-Men, Longshot overthrew and seemingly slew Mojo, who was succeeded by a character known as Mojo II, the Sequel. The first Mojo has a look-alike, Mojo V, who lives one hundred years in the future and is the enemy of the 1990s X-Force's Shatterstar. But somehow the original Mojo survived and returned to power, continuing to make trouble for the X-Men. The Ultimate X-Men comic (2001–present), which presents an alternate version of X-Men continuity, has featured a human villain named Mojo Adams, a reality television show host who hates mutants.
