Inhumans. In The Avengers: Age of Ultron.

We announced over the weekend (on Twitter, the press release platform for all millenials) that we had some awesome geeky news for you folks. We planned to publish on Monday, but after the Captain America: The Winter Soldier after credit scene leaked, and some tidbits about the fate of mutants in the Marvel Universe were revealed, we decided to go back to our source and ask a few more questions.

Initially, our source stated that both Scarlet Witch and her brother Quicksilver, who’ll portray villains (and eventual allies) in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, are Inhumans. As you may remember from the comics, both of these characters are solidly mutants, but Fox Studios securely holds the cinematic rights to mutantkind. Bereft of the traditional origin story for both of those characters, Marvel Studios has decided to reintroduce the siblings to movie going audiences as Inhumans, which coincides with their plans for a massive Cosmic Universe.

When we first heard from our source about the Inhumans she said:

The word here is Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch are Inhumans.

And about the possibility of more Inhumans popping up, how faithful to the source material they’ll be, or an eventual Inhuman movie

I don’t know if they’re the goofy Moon Base guys or a trendier take on the characters. And as far as their own movie, I know about as much as everyone else about the Inhuman movie. I know they [Marvel] want it, but I don’t know how far along it is. Sorry!

And after we read the Captain America: The Winter Soldier after credit scene description, we e-mailed her again to see what she had to say about the term “miracles”, which everyone in the geek community has assumed is the new term for mutants in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I haven’t seen the movie yet, but I’ve heard of the term. Make no mistake, the origins of Scarlet Wtich and Quicksilver is an adaptation of Inhumanity.


In the comics, the Inhumans were just your average, everyday, pre-history human being. That is, until a bunch of Alien scientists from the Kree Empire experimented with their genetic code, creating superpowered badasses. After a few years of NAZI-like testing, the aliens eventually abandoned their subjects. Those folks who survived the experimentation became the Inhumans, and they established their own civilization on our Moon. It wasn’t until thousands of years later, when Earth developed the ability to traverse the solar system, that they rediscovered their long lost cousins, and a few dozen awesome Marvel stories were born!

One of the clearest benefits the Inhumans possess over mutants is their ties to Marvel Studios other franchises!  The Inhumans themselves are the bastard offspring of Kree society, an alien race featured in this summer’s Guardians of the Galaxy.  Further, one of the Inhuman Royal Family, Crystal, is married to the Kree law enforcer Ronan the Accuser in the comics.  Hell, Crystal was also previously married to Quicksilver, a connection which tethers both the Inhumans, the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, AND the Kree Empire.

Way to weave an integrated universe, Marvel!

Also, for those of you who continuously deride our scoops, here’s our stellar track record.  Suck it.

Heyo. I'm Nick Dourian, the Editor-In-Chief around these parts. Now, I went to a few other sites, read a few awesome bios, and I really want to fabricate a badass origins story for myself, but I'm feeling particularly unimaginative today, so 'f' that jazz. I read comics, drink bourbon, and cook meats. Imagine Ron Swanson, but with a fuller beard and cuter eyes.

    Some of your confirmed “scoops” haven’t been confirmed yet, and you really should have your bloggers work on their grammar before telling your readers to “suck it.” I won’t be coming back. Good bye.

      Bunch of twats who run this website. That JARVIS scoop ain’t confirmed – it’s debunked. Funny how the line has changed over time from JARVIS is Ultron to JARVIS is “the basis for” Ultron.

      • fureien

        now that Age of ultron is out and Paul bettany the voice of Jarvis is The Vision

        do you feel stupid now?

  • Steel_Man

        Oh no! You’ve used the F-word and a made-up word to shame me into silence! Whatever will I do?! Sorry, tool, but I can have an opinion too. Sorry that it does suck the Marvel breast.

    I wish people would complain that Marvel Studios isn’t following the comic-books so this will be garbage….give me a break everybody lets anything Marvel Studios does wrong slide because they make lots of movies.

    • Marcell Hines

      Its not supposed to STRICTLY follow the comics, its ADAPTATION

      • http://filmsmartblog.wordpress.com/ Josh White

        I understand that I was acknowledging how many people complain about things like this on FOX, Sony, and WB but when Marvel Studios does it, it’s great!

    The Inhumans were actually discovered living on Earth by the Fantastic Four (in a hidden place in the Himalayas I think) before they moved to their new home in the Blue Area of the moon.
