Marvel announced The Inhumans' movie for 2018 but what i noticed is that many people asked... WHO THE HELL ARE THE INHUMANS??? So here it is, a little explanation of who are these awesome group of "people".

Who are the Inhumans?

The Inhumans are a superpowered of humanity, created by the Kree (Guardians of the Galaxy: Ronan's race) millions of years ago in genetic experiments on Cro-Magnons. The Kree ultimately abandoned their test subjects, known as the Inhumans, but they went on to form their own technologically advanced society far away from humanity. They live in Attilan, which has been relocated several times but is currently on the Blue Area of the Moon. When Inhumans reach a certain age, they’re exposed to a mutagenic vapor called the Terrigen Mists, which unlock latent superpowers. This substance have a different effect in each Inhuman. They have their own culture and rules and usually like to keep to themselves.

But, who are in fact the Inhumans?

Black Bolt

Black Bolt is the classic BADASS type of guy, he is strong, silent (because his voice has the power to unleash great destruction) and he is extremely powerful.

Powers:

  • Inhuman physiology- superhuman strength, speed, stamina, reflexes, longevity etc.
  • Quasi-Sonic scream- Black Bolt's most devastating offensive weapon, and one of the phenomena based upon the particle interaction, is his actual voice.
  • Particle and Electron channeling- that little fork on his head that you may find ridiculous actually focus and channel his powers in more directed and less destructive ways.
  • Particle and Electron manipulation- he can manipulate particules and electrons not only through his voice, but also through his arms.
  • Matter and Energy manipulation- he can manipulate matter and energy to an unknown degree (like turning water into ice).
  • Telepathy- he has strong psychic resistance, he is able to easily resist the mental abilities of his brother.
  • Anti-Gravitational Flight- Black Bolt can also harness the unknown particles his brain generates to interact with electrons to create anti-gravitons that enable him to defy gravity.
The power of his voice!!!

Medusa

Lots of hair!!!
Lots of hair!!!

Medusa is Black Bolt's wife and cousin, and also the Queen of the Inhumans. Her hair, when relaxed, is approximately 6 feet (1,8 meters) in length.

Powers:

  • Inhuman Physiology
  • Highly Resilient Hair- Medusa possesses a long, thick head of hair, every strand of which has greater tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, and shear resistance than an iron wire of the same thickness, as well as the psychokinetic ability to animate her hair for a number of feats.
  • Psychokinetic Hair Manipulation- Medusa can control the movement of her hair as if it were countless thin appendages growing from her head (weird but effective).

Maximus

Maximus is Black Bolt's evil younger brother who wants the throne of the Inhumans, and, of course, he is a genius.

Powers:

  • Inhuman Physiology
  • Mind Control- Maximus possesses the ability to override the thought processes of other brains around him, although the potency of this power varies greatly over time, at its peak, he can overtake the minds of others.

Karnak

He is Black Bolt’s cousin and Triton’s younger brother. He was never exposed to the Terrigen Mist so he has no superpowers. However, he is an expert martial artist.

Powers:

  • Inhuman Physiology
  • Stress Point Detection- Through mental discipline, Karnak has gained the extrasensory ability to perceive the stress points, fracture planes, or weaknesses, physical or psychological, in all objects or persons around him.

Triton

Triton is Black Bolt’s cousin, and Karnak’s older brother. Triton is an aquatic sort with scaly green skin and fins, as well as the ability to breathe underwater, swim at great speeds, and withstand great pressure.

Powers:

  • Inhuman Physiology
  • Aquatic Physiology- Underwater breeding and his vision is more sensitive to the green portion of the visible spectrum, enabling him to see in relatively dark ocean depths.
  • He has a weakness that is that he cannot survive out of water for more than five minutes without special devices before asphixiating and his body is also very susceptible to dehydration.
Cool gear!!!
Cool gear!!!

Gorgon

Gorgon is also Black Bolt’s cousin. He’s built kind of like a centaur but without the back half.

Powers:

  • Inhuman Physiology
  • Regenerative Healing Factor- Gorgon, if injured, is capable of healing somewhat faster and more extensively than a human being can.
  • Kinetic Shockwaves- Gorgon's legs are thickly muscled, allowing him to do massive damage by kicking something or someone, or he can use them to create seismic shocks by stomping the ground with his hooves.
Stomp! Stomp!
Stomp! Stomp!

Crystal

Crystal is Medusa’s younger sister which, yes, makes her another one of Black Bolt’s cousins. In the comic she is actually married to Ronan the Accuser!

YEAH! THIS GUY!
YEAH! THIS GUY!

Powers:

  • Inhuman Physiology
  • Elementalist- Crystal possesses the ability to mentally manipulate the four basic elements of nature: fire, water, earth, and air.

Lockjaw

Lockjaw is a canine who serves as a sort of protector to the Inhumans royal family.

Powers:

  • Intra- and Inter- Dimensional Teleportation- Lockjaw's major power is the ability to teleport himself and up to about one ton of additional mass, across space and even to other dimensions.
  • Psionic/Interdimensional Tracking Sense- Lockjaw also possesses a sense of smell so keen that he can track or locate a scent across dimensional space.
  • Superhuman Strength- Due to his great size, Lockjaw's jaw is extremely strong. He can also carry 3,600 pounds on his back.
  • Superhuman Durability- Lockjaw is much more durable than a human.

Inhumans in the MCU? HOW?

The Inhumans logically fit into the cosmic corner of the MCU, alongside the Guardians of the Galaxy and Thanos (the latter of whom has threatened the Inhumans before). But they don’t have to stay there all the time, and the way the MCU is structured it’s a given they’ll collide with characters from other parts eventually. And since Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver are mutants but Marvel cannot even use that word in the movies there as been some talk that they will be considered Inhumans....

Also Crystal has been married to Quicksilver and was a member of the Avengers, and Black Bolt was part of the Illuminati along with Doctor Strange and Iron Man which as fought to keep the Infinity gems safe.
