Karnak: Eventually, the universe will grow darker until black holes dominate the cosmos, and everyone, everything you've ever known will be sucked into the vast nothingness. No one will be left to observe this, no one left to care.

Behold... The Inhumans
26 October 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

As a newbie who is not really into Marvel comics or DC comics apart from the films released in the cinema. The opening episode had me lost already, so what are the difference between Inhumans and the X-Men? The first episode kind of assumes you are a comic book nerd rather than a casual viewer.

Inhumans live in a secret stronghold of Attilan on the dark side of the moon which appears to have a rigid social structure including slavery for those without special powers.

The early scenes include a coming of age ceremony as young people expose themselves to Terrigen crystals to discover their special abilities.

Black Bolt (Anson Mount) is the King of the Inhumans who does not speak because of his powerful voice which is destructive. Medusa (Serinda Swan) is his wife and the Queen of Attilan. Her red hair is flowing and strong and can be manipulated.

The villain is Maximus (Iwan Rheon) Black Bolt's brother who seemingly does not have any special powers but has loyal followers as he schemes to overthrow his brother.

Luckily for the Royal family, Lockjaw is a giant dog has the power to teleport and takes Black Bolt and others to Earth.

Maximus managed to get rid of his rival brother rather easily in the first episode but it was just not gripping. There is some location shooting in Hawaii, there was plenty of CGI but it really is a Dallas/Dynasty type soap opera with superheros.
