"The Inhumans don’t serve as an analogue for minority and oppressed groups the way that mutants often did. But to me — that’s not a bug in the system, that’s a feature. That territory is already well handled by the mutants. While All-New Inhumans is a team book, by the end of the first arc, you should see that the cast are on different paths as individuals. And we will see the ways they aim for very different things. It’s an opportunity to compare, contrast, and explore the way individuals around the world step up in a globalized era.

"Increasingly, the real world is filled with unique people embracing the power to change the world in all manner of ways. I see our book as exploring parallels to the opportunities, challenges, and risks that come with the spread of digital tools. People are embracing digital tools, platforms, and connections for good, bad, and the complicated space in between.

"So as new Inhumans become empowered around the world — will it turn them into the next Malala Yousafzai? Donald Trump? Edward Snowden? We live in a time when regular individuals can suddenly seize and leverage influence and power. It can pit them against their own society with massive and public results. To me, Inhumans provide an opportunity to explore more complex stories of identity — personal, cultural, national, and ideological — and the tension and friction between those." - James Asmus

"With a little extra insight under our belts we discovered that what started out as an amusingly non-pompous, non-thoughtful, non-sensible foil to the Doctor's more machiavellian excesses was recast as a surprisingly complicated and weirdly relatable character. Sure, he's a psycho-killer with a sword, but he's also an eternal victim who's turned his loss and pain into rocket-fuel to keep him going." -- Si Spurrier

"In my work for The Atlantic I have, for some time, been asking a particular question: Can a society part with, and triumph over, the very plunder that made it possible? In Black Panther there is a simpler question: Can a good man be a king, and would an advanced society tolerate a monarch?" - Ta-Nehisi Coates
