Civil War II | Comics

Because of Black Bolt detonating a Terrigen Bomb during the time Thanos came to invade New Attilan looking for his son (Infinity), a new generation of Inhumans called NuHumans is introduced to the world. Among them was Ulysses Cain, a NuHuman with near-accurate precognitive abilities, who prophesied of an upcoming dystopian future. This came in handy when The Avengers successfully stopped an invasion of a Celestial Destructor in Earth, with help from A-Force, Inhumans, The Ultimates and X-Men.

Doctor Strange and the combined effort of the magic wielders were able to send the Celestial back to its own dimension. As the heroes learned about Ulysses at the celebratory party of their victory, Captain Marvel wanted to recruit him to The Ultimates, whereas Iron Man argues over the logic of trying to stop something before it even takes place. However, in an attempt to apprehend Thanos according to Ulysses' visions, Carol Danvers and her team ambushed The Mad Titan, resulting in the death of War Machine and She-Hulk ended up in coma.

An infuriated Tony Stark then kidnaps Ulysses from New Attilan to further study the true nature of his powers, leading Tony into conflict with Medusa, Crystal and Karnak of The Inhumans. When Black Panther deduced that Karnak is about to destroy the Stark Tower in retaliation, the combined force of The Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Ultimates rushed to the spot to stop him. As Tony runs tests on him, Ulysses projected another vision regarding The Hulk, as he will go into a rampage and kill The Avengers.

Carol approaches a de-powered Bruce Banner in his secret base to come out and cooperate but Hawkeye shoots him dead with an arrow after Beast confirms of Banner is experimenting to regain his powers. Tony show to Captain America, Captain Marvel and Medusa that Ulysses' visions are actually probabilities of possible future, not absolute truth and he revealed it to the world. Carol still refuses to stop using Ulysses' visions to stop possible world-ending threats.

However, things got a bit escalated when she arrested a citizen named Alison Green, believed to be an agent of Hydra based on a prediction Ulysses made but was unable to prove her of any guilt. When Tony got her out of custody, Carol attempts to arrest Tony Stark and he brought over the team of All-New X-Men and The Avengers to confront her. Then Alpha Flight and Guardians of the Galaxy joins Carol against Tony and then Ulysses has a vision of Miles Morales killing Steve Rogers.

Inhuman – AXIS | Comics

Though most of the world thought that Black Bolt; king of The Inhumans has died fighting The Mad Titan; Thanos, he and his insane brother Maximus the Mad were actually busy taking care of some secret business with New Avengers (Time Runs Out). Maximus taunts his brother by keeping him locked up in a hotel room in New York from where they can see New Attilan on Hudson River. He brings two ladies he picked up from bar to introduce with his brother, King Black Bolt but when they saw him, they ran off scared.

Losing their home after Thanos's invasion on Earth, Medusa is now the ruler of remaining Inhumans on New Attilan. A former police officer turned Nuhuman, Nur and an old member of Attilan security force, Auran is summoned and tasked by Queen Medusa to locate her husband after she took a short interview of their new security recruit. The duo eventually discovers the Boltagon brothers in a nightclub and tries to bring them in but Maximus soon turned the table by making Black Bolt unleashing his powerful voice on them.

Knowing what Black Bolt is capable of, Auran quickly pushed Nur away seconds before being vaporized by quasi-sonic energy. Losing his partner defending his life, Nur returns to Attilan and angrily delivers Gorgon and Medusa news of their encounter with her husband as well as his maniacal brother Maximus at Tribeca, New York. Gorgon, Inferno and Nur prepare to go looking for them again with help from Eldrac the Door. Though Gorgon was seemingly unsuccessful convincing Eldrac but Nur eventually made him listen to them.

Reaching Himalayas, they found Maximus and Black Bolt but only to tremble before the latter's earth shattering voice as they tried to apprehend. All three of them were struggling with their lives when Maximus was making his brother scream again and again. However, the encounter doesn't end well for Maximus but worked out fine for Black Bolt in the end anyway. Inferno and Nur argues whether to take him back or not but Gorgon reminds them that Black Bolt is a King and they cannot take him back if he didn't wish to return.

Meanwhile, Inhuman Reader and his powerful new recruit from China, Xiaoyi struggle to get back home from clutches of Ennilux Corporation. New Attilan sees an all-new Medusa on the funeral of Inhuman Royal Family medical regent, as a result of "Inversion Spell". She went to the general assembly of the United Nations infuriated and made a scene, which led her to a brief clash with Spider-Man. Then when she went out in civilian attire to re-discover herself apart from being a Queen, New Attilan fell under attack from Ennilux.

Inhuman – AXIS

Serving as a tie-in storyline of "AXIS" crossover event, this one is the second arc from Inhuhman monthly ongoing series, collecting issues #07-11. The story is plotted by writer Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine – The Logan Legacy, Death of Wolverine – The Weapon X Program) while artist Pepe Larraz (Avengers – Rage of Ultron, Spider Island – The Amazing Spider-Girl) and Ryan Stegman (Fantastic Four, Scarlet Spider) contributed to cover and interior arts of the story for Marvel Comics in 2015.

Plus, the secret adventures of Boltagon brothers with Illuminati to save Earth from incursions before "Time Runs Out" were hinted. Another trouble forms when Inhuman freelancer Reader took a job from Ennilux corporation about delivering a very powerful Nuhuman named Xiaoyi but ended up saving her from the corporation and their sinister leader Capo. Though this plotline has not directly influenced any major occurrences of "AXIS", it sure helped pave a new direction for Inhomo Supremis. Inhumans were just about to start their journey in human world and then suddenly the moral axis of their Queen Medusa being changed affected many things, leading to the next story-arc "Lineage".

Inhuman – Genesis | Comics

A short while ago, when The Mad Titan came to Earth looking for his son and threatened the survival of entire Inhuman race, King Black Bolt detonated a Terrigen Bomb out of desperation that spread a cloud of Terrigen Mists on Earth's atmosphere. Coming in contact of this mutagenic substance, anyone with a potential Inhuman genome in them has been turned into one. While the cloud was placing people into cocoons worldwide, a mysterious individual named Lash took it upon himself to collect those specimens.

He would patiently wait for it to hatch and then decide whether or not the transformation is a success. Otherwise, he would simply incinerate the subject and go looking for a new one. Struggling musician Dante Pertuz from Des Plaines, Illinois, were going out for a weeding gig to support his sick mother and pregnant sister Gabriela when suddenly Mrs. Pertuz was heard screaming. He and Gabriela quickly rushed to her room to find her covered in a cocoon and at the same time he too undergoes Terrigenesis.

Inhuman – Genesis | Comics

Queen Medusa of Inhuman Royal Family quickly took charge of her people and her aide Elejea informs her that one of their own was found on Battery Park. Despite objections from S.H.I.E.L.D. agents at the scene she approaches and seeks help through Eldrac the Door in locating her now-missing husband and Inhuman King Blackagar Boltagon. Meanwhile, Lash approaches Dante Pertuz to join his cause with his exceptional gift of power but he retaliated on the former as he was about to obliterate Mrs. Pertuz still in her cocoon.

Dante eventually took Medusa's side upon her timely arrival, which saved his sister and her unborn child. Lash is forced to retreat and Medusa was able to calm down Dante by smothering his flames with her hair. The remains of Attilan are now mostly in ruins residing on Hudson River and Dante is now training with Gorgon to learn better control over his powers. Then Captain America shows up at their doorstep with S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to check on her and Medusa soon finds herself allied with Steve Rogers in taking down A.I.M. agents to retrieve part of New Attilan's remains.

A mysterious Inhuman calling himself Lineage offers his aid to Medusa, claiming he posses the whereabouts of Black Bolt but not revealing his true intentions to anyone just yet. Queen Medusa led an all-out assault on Lash and his recruits on Orollan with Inhuman Royal Family at her side. Later, Thor visits New Attilan and there was a small occurrence during his presence. An Inhuman named Reader goes to China to recruit a powerful Nuhuman named Xiaoyi to their fold. One of the worst enemies of Inhuman history; The Unspoken has finally returned with a tribute.

Black Bolt | Comics

An Inhuman descendant of the Royal Family, Blackagar Boltagon is the king and the leader of their race. When his mother was pregnant, he was exposed to Terrigen Mist and that gave him a destructive voice that projects quasi-sonic energy capable of leveling mountains. He was contained in a chamber and wore an energy-harnessing suit until he was allowed to enter the society at nineteen.

Black Bolt | Comics

His brother Maximus was involved in a conspiracy with the alien Kree and his forbidden voice crashed the Kree ship on the Council of Genetics, killing many along with his parents and caused Maximus's insanity, yet he was forced to take the leadership mantle. His rule and race was troubled by the intervention of humans and they were forced to move from Attilan to Himalayan Mountains.

In the middle of Kree-Skrull War, Black Bolt was assisted by Fantastic Four to find his betrothed Medusa and later by The Avengers to thwart Maximus. At the end of that war, he joined The Illuminati along with Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Mister Fantastic, Professor X and Namor. Their visit to Skrull homeworld led to the Skrull Invasion years later and then to War of Kings and Realm of Kings.

He also struggled when he and Medusa had a child named Ahura against the wish of the Genetic Council as his bloodline should not be passed on. His biggest challenge was when Black Bolt went against Thanos and detonated a Terrigen Bomb to usher a new age of Inhumanity. He went underground during the Infinity event while Medusa ruled The Inhumans as their queen.

Created by Stan Lee (Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America) and Jack Kirby (Black Panther, Eternals), The Inhuman King Black Bolt is a fictional character of Marvel Comics, who is literally the “Strong and Silent” type, made his debut on the pages of Fantastic Four #45, in 1965. Aside from being the key character of many storylines involving the Inhumans, Black Bolt was also a part of The Evolutionary War, Onslaught Saga, Heroes Reborn, Silent War, House of M, Son of M, World War Hulk and many other great stories.

The King's Lieges

He once even became the supreme ruler of the Kree Empire by defeating Ronan and holds possession of the "Reality Gem" as a member of The Illuminati. Though he went missing after his fight with Thanos, the aftermath of his Terrigen Bomb explosion have not only jump-started a new era for his race but also seem to effect the Mutant community as well as many of the X-Men members with M-Pox. Actor Vin Diesel is very much likely to portray the character of Black Bolt in the 2018’s upcoming live-action Inhumans movie.
