A Chinese expatriate and practicer of Qijong and martial arts receives additional training in a secret U.S. program. Now armed with remarkable powers, he looks to take down a villain bent on destroying everything he knows and loves.
The Inhumans is not just entertainment, it has a wow factor as it unfolds due to the amount of intellect put into its execution. The writer Paul Jenkins is not a big comic book reader and brings a fresh take on the characters that could be viewed as an evolutionary leap in their designs. The way the super powers tie into the plot is done so smooth it would have you believe you are watching a concept that took years to develop over many series. This is a good sign that you are in the mist of great story telling done by a talented writer. The story is very original and has political and philosophical undertones that make it relevant to the times and easy to connect with. This live action comic book looks appealing to youngsters, but is not for kids. It has very little action and will be way over their heads. People have complained and argued as well, that live action comics are not animation. If you like The Maxx or are a fan of the Twisted Metal games you will immediately recognize the same style of animation used in Inhumans. So don't go into this expecting Akira. That being said the art work is top notch, fans of Jae Lee's art work will not be disappointed. If you love comic book art you should enjoy this series. Stunning art and tight writing make this live action comic a real joy to experience. I went into this with low expectations due to Amazon reviews, but after watching it I realize they must have been left by Teenagers who thought they were ordering the new teen titans. As live action comics go this is top shelf.
