Mojoworld exists in a dimension where everything evolves around entertainment, whether that involves putting people in real danger or not. So, it’s just like our world but far less fun. Nevertheless, the ruler of Mojoworld, a globulous being named Mojo, and his dimension-hopping servant Spiral have made it to our world thanks to Sideshow Collectibles and Iron Studios.
Mojo is part of a humanoid race called the Spineless Ones (beings without a spine), derived from a planet later named after him, known as the Mojoworld. Located in a compact dimension called the Mojoverse, his species can mentally receive waves of TV program broadcasts sent from Earth, which has made these creatures go crazy, having humans as demons or myths. Once a primitive society, because of one of their scientific geniuses, the Spineless Ones evolved very fast, technologically speaking, becoming dependent and driven by television entertainment. Taking advantage of this, megalomaniac Mojo started creating and producing his shows using slaves as actors in dangerous situations, conquering power among his audience, and becoming the ruler and absolute leader. A constant threat to the X-Men, as they were often abducted by Mojo just for pleasure. With that, he magnified his power.
Rita “Ricochet” Wayword, a professional stuntman in the past, is a temporal paradox. Attacked by a mutated version of herself from the future called Spiral, she was captured by Mojo, the lord of another dimension, ruled by the entertainment of its inhabitants. In this dimension, Rita underwent physical and mental changes, gaining six arms, some of which are robotic, and an intense enhancement of her mind, allowing her to see and travel through other dimensions and teleport through time. Besides these new abilities, she also acquired mystical knowledge, and under Mojo’s command, traveled back in time and created the events that made her what she is today. With gestures or dance moves, Spiral can teleport herself and countless people across great distances.
Mojo’s dimensions are as follows:
- Height: 10.2″ (25.9 cm)
- Width: 10.6″ (26.9 cm)
- Depth: 10.6″ (26.9 cm)
- Weight: 7 lbs (3.2 kg)
Spiral will take up this much space on your shelf:
- Height: 12.6″ (32 cm)
- Width: 5″ (12.7 cm)
- Depth: 6.3″ (16 cm)
These two inhabitants of Mojoworld will be arriving late next year, between October and December 2022. In addition, we got a small cameo of a Mojoworld citizen in Deadpool 2 with Shatterstar’s concise appearance. Mojo is priced at $315, while Spiral is set at $180.
Mojo also had his own episode on the original X-MEN animated series. It’s a pretty funny episode, and Wolverine does get to cut up some characters who’d rarely appear outside of the comics.
If Disney wanted to bring in a whole bunch of off-the-wall Mutants and aliens into the MCU, Mojoworld would be the way to do it. Plus, if we could get a huge CGI Mojo voiced by Gilbert Gottfried, that would be perfection.
