Face it, the Inhumans have always been the redheaded stepchildren of the Marvel Universe. In December, I sincerely hope that Matt Fraction will change all of that in the new Inhumanity event. For those tired of the event saturated world that we live in, this storyline may not be for you. In his previous Fear Itself story, the writer really dropped the ball on a storyline with a wide scope. That makes me pause with concern in regards to the quality of this story, but hot damn do we need a new Inhuman story. Basically what I am saying is, read this not for quality but if you are itching for some new material in the house of Black Bolt and company. Fraction is also on something of a hot streak coming off some of the best titles of his career including Hawkeye, FF, and Satellite Sam. Read this title with a healthy amount of skepticism and interest in the Inhumans. The scribe had the following to say about the book,
Our focus characters are drawn into the palace intrigue of this shattered Inhumans Royal family, It becomes a superhero story and a mythical story, all revolving around turning the world into a world full of superheroes. It’s giving us a chance to get back to a classic Marvel metaphor of alienation, We’re telling science-fiction stories, but really it’s about race, gender, sexual equality. It’s a very relevant, pertinent metaphor.”
Apparently the premise for the comic revolves around the Terrigen Mists spreading across the world, forging some new Inhumans. Steve Mcniven and Justin Ponsor showed off some new artwork that includes a new costume for Wolverine, an alive and well Nightcrawler, Angela, and Yondu.
Get ready for a different kind of epic story when the series launches in December!
