"Imagine if you had the most important job in the world and it consumed every moment of your life and your thoughts, and on top of that you have to remain completely under control at all times for fear of making even the tiniest sound and destroying everything around you. And then, suddenly, you don't have to do that job anymore. You still can't talk, but you can do whatever you want." - Charles Soule

I think I gave up on this series too quickly. Dammit, Soule. You almost make the Inhumans interesting with this.

I agree. The Inhuman's I could care less about, but the Quite Room? I would buy this book.

Pretty much the one good thing that came out of Wolverines.

Unless you count Laura becoming the All-New Wolverine in that tally.

Who could have envisaged this idea of Black Bolt's could go so wrong so quickly.

Apart from, well, y'know.... EVERYONE

Still, I suspect/hope Soule is going somewhere unexpected with this.

On the other hand, interest in the Inhumans as world power players still at rock bottom. Though I suspect that now Marvel now has the "Reverse gear" they need to undo any Imhuman-isation further down the line.

They are pushing the Inhumans So. Hard. and it really doesn't seem like folks are biting all that much. I mean, this is a much more interesting premise than a lot of the Inhuman stuff I've seen (and I think they toyed with this during Secret Wars, didn't they?), but it still doesn't really show me why the Inhumans should be interesting. Even Soule can only do so much with the hand Marvel is trying so hard to deal, here.

It's not that the Inhumans can't be interesting, but they have such an ugly, tangled history that mutants generally do not. AFAIC, the only really interesting thing from the Inhumans in the last twenty years is Kamala Khan, tbh.

That is completely false. The mutants have a far more convoluted history than the Inhumans. Seriously, have you forget the Summers family tree already?

Inhumans have a long way to go to have a tangled history like the X-Men's.

Anyway, Soule's Inhumans have been pretty good. I'm especially enjoying All New Inhumans. But then i'very always liked Crystal.

Frankly both subspecies of humanity have ridiculessly convoluted story elements. Look up the history of Ahura some time as an example or rather or not Lockjaw is a former human inhuman or just some wierd dog thing. Not to mention both depend on tampering by extrateriestial forces. But then again that's just comics I mean the summers family tree isn't even the wierdest one in existence any more. That's taken by Billy and Tommy's family history that potentially involves an eight year old, Thor and the living embodiment of Earth itself.

The biggest problem with the inhumans and thier history is frankly how loathesome they are. Which works fine for secret alien society cut off from the world having developed in secret but as the next big source of heroes and as mutant stand ins for the mcu it gets really skeevy. I mean this is a group that only just out lawed state scantioned slavery in the last decade. Practices eugenics, classism and believes anyone with a blood connection to them belongs to their culture and should acknowledge their royal family as their rulers.

True, but a lot of the new Inhumans aren't guilty of the old Inhuman's crimes. Many of them aren't affiliated with them.

Speaking of Billy and Tommy, would Vision's new kids count for their family tree?

Yeah but the titles aren't taking the track of the newer inhumans rebelling against the corrupt culture and making a stand instead many of them are shown assimilating and taking part in the same kind of morrally dubious crap the inhumans have pulled for years.

There have been some that have refused to join the Inhumans in Attilan though.

Yes there have but the royals still look at them as potential future subjects. They also aren't the stars of most books.

Their entire existence is a mess of retcons and even more twisted things. Their entire existence is dependant on the time Franklin Richards blew Mephisto up and Wanda used two pieces of his soul to create the original recipe twins. Then those got reclaimed by Mephisto and wanda used the essence of life itself with Doctor doom's help to reincarnate them in two new families in the past before Franklin ever blew up Mephisto. (Which is how they are now older than him)

And it gets even wierder if the Demiurge Billy is supposed to become is the same one that already existed cause then you get Thor and several other gods as his kids/grandkids (both in Atum's case)

No arguments about that. I just thought we were talking about convoluted continuity.

I should be more clear: when I say 'ugly, tangled history' I didn't mean convoluted. The X-Men and Mutants beat them by light-years in that regard. No, I was referring to their imperious social stratification and eugenics issues which have carried through most of their existence, which the modern versions bear on their back. There's a whole aspect to them with regards to the fact that they had effective slavery as a core part of their social system in the very recent history. Not generations ago: under the reign of the current royal family. That's a lot of baggage for them to carry around, IMHO.

Ah, ok. Then yeah, i agree with you on that.

Though it would make for interesting stories if they had the Nuhumans confronting Medusa about it.

Oh, I agree. I think there are interesting stories to be told here. My main dissatisfaction is that a lot of the Inhumans jerkiness is still very much in evidence and I don't really feel like they're recognizing it. Stuff like throwing mutants under the bus for their own PR and some of their very cynical manipulation colors a lot of my perceptions of them. That doesn't mean Marvel has to change them, only that I have no interest in them and I think their deliberate attempt to make them such major players in the MU feels very forced.

On the other hand, Black Bolt running a crazy casino in the MU? Yeah, that's actually kind of fun. And I like Medusa being the kick-ass queen...when she's not playing PR statecraft, at least.

When you have that much body hair below the waist a brazillian must be quite a challenge.
