Ultimate MODOK?

I couldn't help but notice this in Marvel's December solicits:

ULTIMATE VISION #1 (of 5)
Written by MIKE CAREY
Pencils & Cover by BRANDON PETERSON
Picking up directly from the events in the smash hit limited series Ultimate Extinction! The Earth was saved from the Ultimate threat—Gah Lak Tus. But scientist George Tarleton has captured a piece of that awesome entity and plans to reactivate it for his own evil purposes. The only hope for mankind against this mad scheme—the strange alien being called The Vision!
32 PGS./Rated T+ ...$2.99


I wasn't going to pick this up, but in the regular Marvel Universe, George tarleton is better known as...

MODOK, baby!!
The only thing holding me back from ordering this is the knowledge that this is ULTIMATE Marvel, and if this book has any MODOK at all, he probably won't show up until the last few pages of the last issue. And after they get done running him through the Ultimate Kirbykoolness Extractatron 3000, he might very well suck. Like Ultimate Arnim Zola sucked. He'll probably just end up being an ugly disfigured guy in a wheelchair, but we'll see. After all, even a watered-down MODOK is better than no MODOK at all!

Well, as you probably know by now, your prediction was spookily correct, except for the wheelchair bit. it's spider legs instead.
