Marvel Universe Collecting – The Inhumans

There’s a new TV show coming this September – Marvel’s Inhumans. It is part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and I’ve decided to hype myself up for the new show by showcasing my Inhumans figures.

The Inhumans are a race of beings who had diverged from mainstream humanity thousands of years ago as a result of genetic experimentations on primitive man performed by the alien Kree. Although the Inhumans were originally created as weapons of mass destruction, the Kree abandoned their experiments when a prophecy foretold that the Inhumans will ultimately turn against them. Each Inhuman gain various powers when subjected to the Terrigen Mist, and this is sometimes accompanied by drastic changes to their outward appearances.

Black Bolt is the King of the Inhumans. Black Bolt has the ability to trigger a destructive shockwave whenever he speaks. Due to the extreme danger posed by this power, Black Bolt usually remains completely silent and speaks through sign language or via spokesperson.

Medusa is the Queen of the Inhumans, and the wife of Black Bolt. Medusa has a long, thick head of red hair, which has great tensile strength and elasticity. Medusa can control the movement of her hair, and she uses her hair as a weapon to attack her enemies.

Karnak is a member of the Inhuman Royal Family, he is skilled in martial arts, and is a master strategist. Karnak has the ability to find the weak point in any person, plan, or object. Karnak was never exposed to the Terrigen Mist, and so never developed additional powers like other Inhumans.

Triton is the brother of Karnak. When Triton underwent Terrigenesis, he gained the ability to breathe underwater and survive the deep ocean environment. His skin turned scaly and green, and a dorsal fin grew on his head. The transformation has also given him great superhuman strength which he uses to his advantage serving as a scout for the Inhumans.

Lockjaw is an Inhuman who resembles a giant bulldog, he has the ability to teleport people and objects. Lockjaw serves in the capacity as the Inhumans’ teleporter and escort to the Inhuman Royal Family.

Based on the released blurb, the new TV show will tell the story of members of the Inhuman Royal Family as they escape an uprising on their hidden city on the Moon, and seek refuge on Earth, interacting with humanity and hopefully find a way to return to their way of life.
