I don’t mind the concepts of Inhumans although the Inhuman, Mutant, Superhero thing seems kind of messed up. But I went through the original 1998 Marvel Inhumans comics (via Marvel Unlimited) introducing the Inhumans and their royal family and I came out absolutely loathing Black Bolt and Inhuman politics in general.
So much of the series turned on Black Bolt not being able to speak. There were quite a number of the 12 comic series where everyone sat around asking I don’t understand what Black Bolt wants us to do. Well maybe you idiots shouldn’t have picked a leader who can’t actually communicate with you. What kind of a society decides that their leader should be someone that can’t actually talk or give speeches, or explain what he wants them to do or why he’s taking the actions he’s taking. It just seemed incredibly stupid.
That said, I do like the Inhumans on Agents of Shield well enough. And I like Kamala Khan (new Ms Marvel) who’s an Inhuman. So if the show concentrates on new Inhumans as basically superheroes, I’m cool with that, but if they focus on Inhuman internal politics ugh. The trailer looked like it had some of both.
Can someone explain why people in the Marvel universe seem to mostly like Superheroes but hate and fear mutants? This doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. Both of them are vastly superior to humans and can squash us flat. I did find it amusing when in one of the X-men comics they retro-conned the X-men uniforms by them deciding that if they wore colorful costumes people would think of them more as superheroes instead of mutants and therefore they’d be more acceptable to the populace.
