Fictional species biography

At the beginning of the Kree-Skrull War , millions of years ago in Earth time, the alien Kree established a station on the planet Uranus , a strategic position between the Kree and Skrull empires. Through Their work at this station, They Discovered That sentient life on nearby Earth HAD genetic potential Invested in it by the alien Celestials . Intrigued, the Kree began to experiment on earth’s then-primitive Homo sapiensto produce the genetically advanced Inhuman race. Their goal was apparently twofold-to investigate possible ways of circumventing their own evolutionary stagnation, and to create a powerful mutant race of soldiers for use against the Skrulls. [17] Although their experiments were successful in creating a strain of humanity, the Kree abandoned their experiment because it was predicted that the experiments would eventually lead to an anomaly that would destroy the Kree Supreme Intelligence. [18]

Their test subjects, the Inhumans, went on to form a society of their own, which thrived in seclusion from the rest of humanity and developed advanced technology. Experiments with the mutagenic Terrigen Mist (a process known as Terrigenesis) has given rise to various powers, but caused lasting genetic damage and deformities. This leads to a long-term selective breeding in an attempt to mitigate the effects of these mutations.

Attilan’s society et la culture et un dispositif et un dispositif et un dispositif et un dispositif et de la santé et de la santé et de la santé et la nomenclature. the Terrigen Mist. Once assigned, no Inhuman, no matter how powerful or powerful, can change its place within this rigid caste system. [19] [20] HOWEVER, as an exception, a member of the Royal Family, Crystal , married outside the Inhuman race to the mutant Quicksilver . [21]

The Inhumans are led by their King, Black Bolt , and his Royal Family, consisting of Medusa , Karnak , Gorgon , Triton , Crystal , Maximus the Mad , and the Lockjaw canine . Both Crystal and Medusa have been members of the Fantastic Four ; Crystal has been a member of the Avengers as well.

Black Bolt has been one of the most turbulent times in their history, with several attacks by the workers, the revolt by the worker class, the attacks by the victims, the kidnapping of the Medusa, the destruction and rebuilding of Attilan, and the revelation of the Inhumans’ existence to humanity.

His role as king of the Inhumans has been tumultuous. The first major crisis occurred when Medusa conceived a child . Medusa bore the child in defiance of the Genetic Council, who felt that Black Bolt’s bloodline was too dangerous to pass on. The Council nonetheless took the child to examine and forbade parental contact. Medusa Escaped to Earth with members of the family to be harassed by Maximus. Black Bolt was torn between his love of family and his duty to respect the Genetic Council, and it was only when the Council was revealed to be in a position that he was finally turned against the Council. With that, he gave up the crown of the Inhumans. For a while, they lived away from Attilan, but returned in times of need. [22]

The once-secret existence of the race has come to light among the general public in the Inhumans interact more often with many of Earth’s superheroes -including the Fantastic Four , the Avengers , and the X-Men -whom they have aided against threats such as Doctor Doom , [23] Ultron 7 , [21] [24] Magneto , and Apocalypse . [25] [26] However, nobody came to the Inhumans’ aid when an army of Portuguese mercenaries attacked Attilan, which was now located at Atlantean ruins. [27] This was actually a coup d’état orchestrated by Black Bolt ‘s brother Maximus the Mad.

Eventually, Ronan to a personal battle. If Ronan won, the Inhumans would continue to serve him. If the king won, the Inhumans would go free. After a terrible battle, Black Bolt won and Ronan, demonstrating that the Kree still had honor, kept his word and left the Inhumans. All were not over, as the Inhumans were not willing to just follow Black Bolt back to Earth. Had been building in the closed society of Attilan since. During their enslavement by Ronan, the Inhumans had wished for their freedom, but had developed a sense of pride in their power and belief in their own destiny. They no longer believed that Black Bolt or the Royal Family were made to lead them in the new life they wanted, and they exiled the Royal Family from Attilan.[29] The Royal Family returned to Earth to find their destiny. After suffering bigotry while living in the Baxter Building with the Fantastic Four and turning down political asylum from Latveris by Dr. Doom, the royal family returned to Attilan, which was located on the Blue Area of ​​the Moon. [30] The Inhumans Attempted to foster better relationships with Earth by sending students to University of Wisconsin . [31]
