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.
