Default INHUMANITY - The Inhumans return in new mini-event rebrand



The Inhumans are coming back at Marvel Comics in a big way this December, at the hands of Matt Fraction and others.

"Inhumanity" will not be an event per se, but more a post-event rebranding, similar in scope to "Decimation," "Dark Reign," or "Heroic Age" before it. Each of those came directly after an event and ran across the Marvel Universe to show a general tone or prevailing storyline across all titles. A new series, Inhuman, written by Matt Fraction will launch as part of the branding. Possible spoilers for Infinity follow.

According to the announcement article on EW.com, after Infinity, the next major crossover event at Marvel running this Autumn, the Terrigen Mists - the source of Inhuman powers that activates their latent abilities, get released around the world. Millions of "Inhuman decendants," people who may come from a cross-breed of Human and Inhuman, even from several generations past, have their latent abilities activated, resulting in an entirely new dominant race across the globe.

"The effect on the Marvel Universe will be seismic," Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso told EW.com. "You might learn that your new self is fantastic, beautiful, filled with immense power. By the same token, you could turn around and find out that youíre nothing. Youíre a blob. You have no powers. You can create a little flame out of your pinkie."

Fraction's series Inhuman will focus on the "shattered Inhumans Royal family," says the writer. "Itís giving us a chance to get back to a classic Marvel metaphor of alienation. Weíre telling science-fiction stories, but really itís about race, gender, sexual equality. Itís a very relevant, pertinent metaphor."

As the family reacts to the new Inhumans and Attilan falls, they're "turning the entire Marvel Universe into a potential battlefield. And regular people are in the middle."

Accompanying the announcement is a new teaser drawn by Steve McNiven showing "characters who will feature prominently in the" new status quo. The image shows Black Bolt and Medusa, the Inhuman king and queen, along with Falcon, Iron Man, Silver Surfer, Black Widow, Thor, old Guardians of the Galaxy member Yondu (who is incidentally rumored to be in the Guardians movie), Winter Soldier, a newly costumed Wolverine, newcomer to the Marvel Universe Angela... and perhaps most intriguing, a Spider-Man that looks more like his Amazing costume than Superior, and in the background of it all - the long-dead Nightcrawler of the X-Men!

What, if anything, all that means has yet to be revealed, but there does happen to be this event in San Diego next week called Comic-Con, where we can bet we'll hear more about those characters and their futures.

Inhuman, by Matt Fraction and an undisclosed artist, launches in December 2013 alongside the Marvel-wide branding of "Inhumanity."

I certainly hope not
I know it's not a popular position around here, but Wolverine is still my favorite character, and one of the few I still follow
add to that being generally tired of stunt-deaths that last all of a year, and Marvel can count me out as a customer if they pull this nonsense

if he just loses the healing factor for a bit, it's cool, but kill him at your own peril, Marvel
and once again, if they make Daken the new Wolverine, I'll burn their damn offices down.... jk.. maybe

I'm skipping this. Not a big Inhumans guy, plus Matt Fraction. Hopefully it has tie-ins across Marvel's entire line of ongoings and I get to save some money when I skip those too.

I loved the Inhumans from their Secret Invasion mini through War of Kings and their Realm of Kings mini. It's hard to imagine topping that plot.

I just read that it isn't an event as much as a labeling... like Initiative, Realm of Kings, and Marvel Now.

You should read Peter David's Inhumans v2. That is even better.

Was that the one focusing on the young Inhumans from Jenkins' mini? I liked Jenkins' mini a lot and always wanted to try the ongoing that followed it. I just never got around to it.

So basically, Marvel has potentially spoiled Infinity, X-Men: Battle of the Atom, Wolverine's "Killable" and the fate of the Superior Spider-Man all in one feel swoop. That's got to be some kind of record.

And pardon my French, but if Marvel is using the Inhuman's new status quo to "get back to a classic Marvel metaphor of alienation" and telling stories that are "really...about race, gender, [and] sexual equality," then what is the ****ing point of even having the X-Men and all the other X-related titles in the mainstream Marvel Universe any more if the Inhumans serve the exact same function as the mutants do? Even with all the talk about how the Inhuman's get their powers from Terrigen Mists, it still amounts to people being born with superpowers just like mutants because of people potentially having "dormant Inhuman cells" or ancestors who were Inhumans.

What, the X-Men have the whole market on racism cornered all of a sudden? There's plenty of room for others to explore those themes. Think of the Inhumans as Hispanic people to the X-Men's black people. Different kinds of prejudice and circumstances and such.

The X-men don't have a patent on those themes. Other books can explore them too. Though people like Aaron and Remender seem to want to erode that metaphor for some reason.

Edit: what Corp said!

How are they eroding the alienation metaphor?

The "M" word speech seemed like an attempt to get people to stop seeing mutants as a minority metaphor and more of just a "super power delivery system" like Wanda put it.

Remender said this:
Quote:
The beauty of the mutant metaphor is that it's so inclusive — there are so many ways a person can relate to it. The mistake, I think, is to apply your own personal metaphor onto it and assume everyone else sees it the same way or that your version applies more than someone else's. Everyone sees the mutants as themselves. Everyone
And Aaron said:
Quote:
Even now, I think there's a lot about the X-Men mythos that doesn't match up with a race or minority metaphor.
Obviously the X-titles still have the minority metaphor at their core. But it does seem like maybe Remender and Aaron care less about making mutants a metaphor for race and sexuality than some other writers. Aaron just wants to write goofy X-stories and Remender shines more with the Apocalypse stuff.

Idk, its nice to have variety
Some writers can occasionally beat you over the head with the metaphors in X-men
its nice to have a couple writers just give you solid action stories sometimes
The X-Men can cover both

So it sounds to me like Blackbolt or someone sprays Earth with the Terrigan Mists to fight back against Thanos and his army. If that's how Infinity ends and they spoiled it before the first issue comes out, I'll be annoyed.

So it'll be Earth X again?

Just a few questions about the whole thing.

1) Angela - She looks like Spawns (image comics) Angela, different character right?

2) When did Black Bolt come back? Is Vulcan back as well?

3) What happened to them running the Kree empire?

No, it's the same Angela from Spawn comics. Neil Gaiman sold the character to Marvel.

Black Bolt returned back in Hickman's FF run, around issue 6. We still don't know what happened to Vulcan.

The Supreme Intelligence turned against the Inhumans because through Black Bolt surviving the Terrigen Bomb they figured out he was the end result of the Kree experiments that was prophecized to bring ruin to the empire.

Thanks for the info now I'm slightly less confused about the whole shebang.

It's been stated that Vulcan is returning and a list of comics was given that he might be returning in. I don't recall what they were but I think Uncanny Avengers was among them. Maybe Guardians of the Galaxy.

Wasn't there rumors of Marvel being interested in turning the Inhumans into a Game Of Thrones type thing?
