Behold…The Inhumans

Marvel's InhumansA young woman is on the run in the forests of Oahu, Hawaii, when she encounters a man with green skin. His name is Triton, and he is obviously not human. But then, he explains, neither is she. She is one of the humans to have inhaled terrigen mists, and has gained new abilities as a result. But she’ll never be accepted by human society once she reveals her powers.

In the city of Atillan, hidden from human view on the surface of the moon, Black Bolt, the king of the Inhumans, is under scrutiny for dispatching Triton to Earth for what now looks like it may have been a suicide mission. Black Bolt’s brother, Maximus, is especially angry with the decision, and tries to sow dissent among the ruling council, and even between the king and queen themselves. Gorgon, the head of the royal guard, is sent to Earth to find out what happened to Triton, but in his absence, Maximum sets a plan into motion: a coup to seize the throne for himself. Crystal, younger sister of Black Bolt’s wife, Medusa, orders her pet, Lockjaw, to use his teleportational powers to spirit the royal family and their closest allies and advisors to safety on Earth, but Crystal herself is captured by Maximum, as is Lockjaw, when he returns to save her.

Though Black Bolt and the others try to fit in on Earth, it’s hard to disguise their powers. This makes them far too easy to find, both for the authorities on Earth and Maximus’ new regime on the moon, especially when Maximus dispatches his personal guard, Auran, to round up Medusa, Gorgon, and Karnak…but her orders are to kill Black Bolt on sight.

Those Who Would Destroy Us

Marvel's InhumansThough Black Bolt and the others try to fit in on Earth, it’s hard to disguise their powers. Lockjaw has deposited them, somewhat haphazardly, in various locales near Oahu, Triton and Gorgon’s last known location. Lockjaw drops Black Bolt into the middle of a busy intersection in Oahu, where he immediately attracts the attention of the police after causing an accident. Even a change of wardrobe into something a little more earthly proves problematic, as the King of Atillan is unaccustomed to having to pay for anything, and even less accustomed to anyone trying to arrest him for having failed to pay for something. He is left with a choice – utter even a single sound with his voice, which could wreak untold destruction on the people and city around him, or submit to arrest and play by human rules.

Maximus dispatches his personal guard, Auran, to round up Medusa, Gorgon, and Karnak, but Auran’s attempt to apprehend Medusa ends with the spilling of her own blood. Karnak and Gorgon each begin making their way toward civilization, aware that their presence could disrupt the lives of those around them. Auran recovers from the fight with Medusa and calls for backup in bringing the royal fugitives back to the moon. Her orders are different, however, if she should see Black Bolt: he is to be killed on sight.

Divide And Conquer

Marvel's InhumansThen: King Agon lectures his two sons, Black Bolt and Maximus, on the importance of the duties involved in taking the throne of Atillan. It’s obvious that Maximus relishes the power of the throne more than Black Bolt, even going so far as to ask if he becomes the heir-apparent should Black Bolt die. The brothers’ powers gradually make themselves known to the Genetic Council: Black Bolt’s voice could destroy Atillan, killing friends or enemies alike. And what makes Maximus unique? He’s not even Inhuman at all.

Now: Black Bolt, deposed King of Atillan, sits quietly in solitary confinement in Oahu. Gorgon continues his effort to lure Maximus’ security chief, Auran, into attacking before she’s ready. Gorgon has accumulated a small band of local former soldiers who say they’re up for a fight, but he’s worried that he may soon have human blood on his hands as a result, and Auran brings with her the incredibly powerful Mordis, leaving one of Gorgon’s recruits seriously wounded as they make their escape. Karnak thinks he’s found sanctuary at a farm, only to be held at knifepoint because he’s actually stumbled into the middle of a hidden marijuana growing operation. Medusa finds a better way to blend in, but becomes more obsessed with finding Black Bolt, who has befriended a fellow inmate with Inhuman powers. Black Bolt and his new ally break out of prison, but are whisked away by the enigmatic Dr. Declan before Medusa can intervene. Crystal, held prisoner in Atillan, is given one last chance to live…by endorsing “King Maximus” in public.
