In last year s Infinity Black Bolt detonated the Terrigen Bomb at the heart of the floating Inhuman capital city of Attilan a last ditch move by the desperate king against Thanos The fallout of the bomb was a massive cloud the Terrigen Mist floating across the world transforming anyone with dormant genes from human to Inhuman And that number turned out to be surprisingly high But the Inhumans are divided Attilan now fallen is now without a king as Black Bolt has disappeared In his stead ueen Medusa rules over a peaceful city welcoming and educating the new and confused Inhumans or NuHumans as they re called about their changed forms And then there is Orollan the other hidden Inhuman city a militaristic place ruled by Lash a powerful Inhuman hunting down newly transformed Inhumans If they prove useful to him they live if they don t they die Oh dear The usually dependable Charles Soule has written his first turkey with Inhuman Volume 1 In a way it s not entirely his fault Matt Fraction worked on developing the series initially but left just months away from the first issue s release the reason being mutual disagreement with Marvel over the title s direction so Soule was brought in at the last minute to make it all work And it s not terribly written or a bad idea to bring focus on the Inhumans But there are several big problems with the book The setup feels very much like what s currently happening with the X Men There was M Day when mutants suddenly became an endangered species then there was AVX which reversed that situation and now we ve got tons of mutants popping up everywhere Chasing down and recruiting the new mutants are Cyclops renegade group and Wolverine s people That s basically the same situation with the Inhumans suddenly there are tons of new Inhumans popping up and two opposing forces are intent on recruiting them which is repetitive but also terribly boring It s actually ok for a bit but it s also been done and Soule doesn t really bring any new surprises to the setup And while we re on the subject of the X Men what is the difference between a mutant and an Inhuman That s the basic uestion that this book really needed to answer and it didn t Mutant or Inhuman they re interchangeable Then there s the lack of any memorable uniue or likeable characters Medusa s your typical strong female character she s smart she kicks ass she s wise but she s also pretty cold and her pompous attitude is at odds with her message of inclusion Lash is your typical one dimensional villain from his appearance to his speech there s never any doubt about who he is and what his intentions are That leaves the new main character Dante Why is he called Dante Because his Inhuman power is fire so he s named Inferno Dante s Inferno That s so uncreative it s jaw dropping Who is Dante Well he s the hero I guess I can t really tell you any characteristics he has He s the good looking lead he s got fire powers I give up He s some guy we re supposed to root for and I didn t give a damn about him at all About halfway through the book the hunt for NuHumans or less ends and then the book struggles to find traction again It treads water focusing on a group of uninteresting NuHumans as they complain about how their lives are over now that they look different blah blah blah Then there s the most half assed attempt at making it seem like Attilan is in trouble which is resolved laughably uickly And then it s doneExcept for that sucker punch of a last page THAT was what I wanted to read about in Inhuman I wanted to see THAT storyline instead of the crap that preceded it all of which should ve been a sidestory instead of the main event The only real positive I can take away from this book is that with that tantalising final page the series might pick up a lot in the second volume Joe Madureira s art is really excellent and the first three issues look lush the figures are fully realised the whole book having this sense of epic scope and Lash s character design in particular looks outstanding Then halfway through there s a change as Spider Man artist Ryan Stegman is brought in and wow is there a massive difference in their styles It doesn t help that a lot of Stegman s work looks extremely rushed with several panels looking like thumbnails rather than the finished article I can understand why Marvel want to make the Inhumans into a big deal besides the fact that they re a curious bunch of oddballs they don t own the rights to the X Men so they re building up the Inhumans to be their X Men surrogate on screen Unfortunately based on this first volume full of false starts and dead ends they ve got a long long way to go before they can prove these characters are of the same rich uality as the X Men

As depicted in Inhuman Vol 1 Genesis the race of highly evolved humans known as the Inhumans are not uite mutants but not uite straight up superheroes either They re like a fusion between the two types of super beings Genetically they have a gene that makes them special like mutants Yet the process of transformation is triggered through an external agent in this case by a substance called Terrigen Crystals as opposed to say a radioactive spider As such Inhumans are conceptually both original and ersatz This is kind of the point I thinkThat is it s probably not a coincidence that the book draws obvious parallels between the plot of Genesis and familiar X Men tropes or between the remains of the Inhumans city New Attilan floating in the Hudson Bay and how Asgard once floated over Oklahoma as other reviewers of this book have pointed out Not to mention that the primary artist at work here is the now legendary X Men penciler Joe Madureira whose once uniue Manga inspired pencils from the late 90 s helped inspire the current generation of comic book artists But to what extent does Marvel want to pursue these parallels Are the Inhumans supposed to completely supersede the X Men simply because Marvel wants to push a new movie franchise through its comic book line Or does Marvel genuinely hope to create a new type of superhero ie an organic variation on what has come beforeMany of the rumors out there now are troubling and favor the former possibility Not only is there a completed Inhumans screenplay out there that Marvel is shopping but Vin Diesel seems interested in playing Black Bolt Not to mention that there s also The Uncanny Inhumans a comic book slated for release in the near future Personally I hope Marvel does both That is I hope Marvel succeeds in having its cake and eating it too because I think that there s than enough conceptual freshness in Inhuman to justify a new breed of superhero in the Marvel U while still giving audiences something conceptually similar to the X Men The setupFollowing King Black Bolt s detonation of the Terrigen Bomb which caused the wide spread appearance of new highly evolved humans across the world ueen Medusa and a group of these new Inhumans or Nuhumans struggle to both defend and establish their burgeoning society against friend and foe alikeInitially the structure of Genesis s storyline threw me off it begins as an X Men style tale about two philosophically opposed groups of Inhumans gathering the newest members of their kind into the fold ueen Medusa s approach is benign in the sense that she encourages all new Inhumans to join her ranks voluntarily All they have to do is show up at her doorstep at what remains of New Attilan and ask for refuge She even invites regular ol humans to show up and get a feel for the place and its people Her counterpart the cruel and powerful Lash has a aggressive and selective approach Indeed tracking down new Inhumans across the world himself Lash makes it his calling to cull the strong Nuhumans from the weak killing those he doesn t deem fit enough to join his own cult like society in Orollon The storyline seems to be building to a climactic showdown between ueen Medusa s society and Lash s Nonetheless at the midpoint of the book the plot takes a turn for the unexpected taking the book s intentions in a intriguing direction with it as wellIt s this unexpected turn of events that shakes things up and differentiates the overall concept and story of Genesis from those of the X Men books SPOILER Indeed the anticipated showdown between Medusa and Lash happens a bit sooner than expected Similarly to how Charles Xavier solicits Magneto s aid and vice versa after bashing each other s heads in Medusa extends her hand in friendship to Lash offering to take him in and begin the process of establishing New Attilan in earnest Lash pretty much disappears from the book after this point which seems a bit odd in that he appears to be the book s main antagonist But he s really not END SPOILER It turns out that Lash is simply one of various antagonistic forces that will challenge ueen Medusa s judgement and reign in New Attilan in some shape or form Some of these antagonistic forces are clearly hostile some aren t but they all provide conflict for ueen Medusa s true project in Genesis namely to create a society of Inhumans rather than to build a super team This distinction of purpose not only differentiates ueen Medusa from Charles Xavier but Inhuman from the X Men books as well in that it turns the Inhumans into true underdogs a characteristic that some believe that the X Men never really embodiedTo be sure where Charles Xavier was trying to form a super team of mutants for the benign purpose of not only protecting other mutants but humans as well ueen Medusa is simply trying to keep her people together good bad ugly strong or weak In this sense Inhuman tells a poignant tale than that of the X Men whether or not you align yourself with the benign Xavier or with the villainous Magneto mutants are homo superior in the sense that they are genetically evolved than regular humans This isn t uite the case with Inhumans Not all of them Indeed whether or not an Inhuman turns out to be a stronger member of the human race depends on how the individual undergoes the Terrigen induced transformation process which is incredibly unpredictable Some Inhumans can end up on the wrong side of the evolutionary scale changing for the worse becoming weaker and often horribly transformed beyond recognition Hence Medusa s imperative to protect ALL Inhumans rather than to gather and train a group of people that will form a super team of highly evolved humans by default Of course a society needs soldiers and this is where some of the book s young protagonists come in to play Those readers who enjoy seeing young mutants train and learn to use their powers under the guidance of a gruff hardened mentor will get something similar in Inhuman Only that here you don t have the rugged Wolverine lighting the way for the young but the rugged Gorgon instead To be honest though I enjoyed it Gorgon s training of characters like Dante aka Inferno is the least interesting aspect of the book for me I mean been there done that As the series develops I d like the book to focus on the vulnerable non superhero members of Inhuman society Granted you can t have a teen friendly mainstream superhero book without superheroes That would be a bit uh disingenuous to say the least Nonetheless I d still like to see the writers of Inhuman embrace the darker vulnerable side of the Inhuman race because it provides an opportunity to mine new dramatic material from situations and scenarios that we ve seen before in both X Men and superhero books alike Fortunately there s cause for hopeIndeed chapterissue 5 of Genesis alone elevates Charles Soule to the level of author to watch status for me In said chapter Soule tells a Twilightzonish tale that could stand alone as a very effective short story Having said that this story initially had me rolling my eyes in that the protagonist s predicament is very similar to that of your typical young mutant s where their genetic gifts create an identity crisis that also functions as a metaphor for racism and other forms of prejudice Nonetheless without getting into spoilers there s a twist at the end of this story that makes me think that the creators of Inhuman are very much aware of what makes the Inhumans not only conceptually different from both X men and run of the mill superheroes alike but also different in practice Suffice to say that to be inhuman is to be Other among OthersNot having been familiar at all with the Inhumans history in the Marvel U I wondered why no one had thought of splicing mutant and superhero together before Well after doing some research I now realize that they obviously did Sort of Though the concept and the lore of the Inhumans goes way back to the 60 s the original idea behind them was a bit out there not uite the updated version of mutants that Inhuman seems to be To be sure as Jack Kirby initially conceived of them the artificially enhanced Inhumans were meant to provide a sci fi spin on mythological characters and legends under the aegis of the superhero genre Hence the Atlantis like city of Attilan and original Inhumans characters like Triton and Gorgon This would also explain one of the newest Inhumans Dante aka Inferno who is named after one of the most renown examples of classical mythology Dante s Inferno Get it Though as it has already been pointed out none of this uite explains why Thunderbolt wears a mask other than that it looks cool and because wearing masks is a superhero thing Alas I don t see anything wrong with a mythological version of the X Men I also LIKE the idea of a mythological version of The Human Torch or of Pyro as I also like the idea of Gorgon being a mythological version of Wolverine It s the same but different So far it s the subtle but organic variations on familiar comic book characters and scenarios which make the idea behind Inhuman a genuine noteworthy event for me As long as Marvel keeps earnestly developing aspects of the book that expand on what has come before I ll keep reading I sincerely hope they do I ve been looking for an excuse to follow an X Men book not solely written by Jason Aaron after having sworn never to do so again
