They don't fit into the boxes. They're not heroes - they've done some awful things - and at the same time, they're not villains. They're not aliens, but they're not part of human society either - although thanks to the NuHumans, any part of human society can be part of them. They're their own complicated thing, unique and weird, a little piece of pure sci-fi with a toe-hold in standard superheroics. -- Al Ewing

You know, people would probably hate the Inhumans slightly less if the given reason that they didn't want to destroy the cloud was that it might kill them all in return.

But whatever, I'm pretty sure there's an "portray the current generation of Inhumans in the best possible light" editorial edict going on.

(Though the most recent issue shows that Black Bolt/Maximus' parents as assholes intentionally, so that edict doesn't go to the past.)

Yeah there's no other explanation for the all the apologia going around during the IVX storyline with the absurd defenses like the Terrigen Mists wiping out mutants being comparable to peanut butter allergies or Cyclops being compared to Hitler for trying to stop mutants from being gassed to death.

Their parents were always total assholes, that's nothing new.
And I also think even if such an edict exists it's failing and it has been failing for years :D

Considering recent stuff, I would have expected them to sweep their behavior under the rug.

And note that I never said it was a successful edict ;).

Yeah, they tend to do that with Inhumans and I honestly don't know WHY.
(Maybe there's undiscovered pheromone enchantment thing which influence every other race to think "nay, Inhumans are okay" no matter what they do, so it seems strange only to the readers :D)

It's like they try and have them be heroes while still doing some 'ambiguous' actions and shoot right past 'ambiguous' and into 'horrible' without realizing it.
