"My final thought on the completion of my single longest comic run to date? It was all just so much FUN. It always felt like there was so much possibility in these characters, and I tried to live up to that. If you read this run from start to finish, you'll get one huge, interconnected story, with a wonderful main character in Medusa. This book was always about the queen - her struggles to hold her nation together, and her ultimate success even at great personal cost. Inhumanity is about change, and we see that happen in spades, to the extent that the future of these characters could contain anything at all (as it should be!). The books contained Game of Thrones-style intrigue, super hero action, romance, meditations on grief and humanity, weird humor, you name it." - Charles Soule

-"this book contained Game of Thrones-style intrigue [...] you name it."-

But it did not include a were-bear.
Major failing there.

-"No-one could've known what would happen."-
"I mean, okay, yes, the last humans who were exposed to terrigen before you let the Death Cloud loose all died horribly, but... details. And I never liked those Mutants, anyway. Teach them to be more marketable."

I feel like I could read about Maximus being a complete maniac for an entire series.
No Medusa, no Karnak, no Gorgon, just Maximus getting into hijinks via MAD SCIENCE!

But there's this inexplicable feeling that such a thing might become... uninteresting somehow...
Which just doesn't make sense.

This is Marvel. When it comes to comic events, they have a WWE-like ability to turn gold into lead.

You can't blame Charles Soule for whatever position on the mutants Marvel as a company may or may not have had. Plus he's writing the X-Men starting next month.

Yea. I like Soule, I followed his earlier Inhuman works, and due to the company's position I was really turned off on continuing to follow them.

Would depends on his opponents I think. How about Maximus and Kludge versus Forge and the X-Club on a madcap, Wacky Races style chase around the world for.

Maximus is great when he appears because he is generally used sparingly.

Also Hickman, tbf

Give me a Maximus/Loki team-up for all the shenanigans!

I'll go ahead and admit that Maximus was a lot of fun in this.

Problem isn't they knew it would happen, it's that they hemmed and hawed when mutants were dying because the cloud was 'sacred' and then had the audacity to act shocked when the mutants retaliated.
