|Story/s:||The Uncanny Inhumans|
Using Reader, Black bolt and Triton travel back 13,000 years to ancient Attilan. As they are about to enter the city they are swallowed up in a ball of some sort of energy.
Turns out it’s Kang the Conqueror and he’s upset. Blackbolt has broken a bargain he had with Kang and now they must pay with their lives for their treatery. So to that end he sends them to Novaya Zemlya Archipelgo 1961, 2 minutes before the Soviets drop the largest hydrogen bomb ever built. And just to keep them busy he throws in some dinosaurs and english soldiers from what looks like WWII (or WWI i’m not sure). They fight the soldiers and dinosaurs but get reader to open a portal to wherever he can to escape the hydrogen bomb. They get out with only a split second to spare. Barely saving Reader’s dog Forey. Blackbolt realises getting his heir, his only son back from the past is not going to be so easy. Kang has made that clear.
In Central Park present day, some Inhumans (Medusa, Inferno, Flint, Iso and Grid) are fighting the Chitauri who seem to be after the Skyspear in the Onassis Reservoir. On defeating the Chitauri Medusa is set upon by the media. Basically she explains Inhumans are being born worldwide so the inhumans will now endeavour to protect the whole world now, not just New Attilan.
Back at New Attilan Medusa questions Dr. Hank McCoy (the Beast) about his progress on some mystery project. Something to do with the tensions between Mutants and Inhumans maybe.
Finally Blackbolt walks in on Medusa kissing the Human Torch of Fantastic Four fame.
We then cross to a not so distant future where Flint is training to kill Thanos by his instructor Gorgon who is in a wheel chairs of sorts.
Agent Frank McGee it seems is helping the Inhumans find their children from around the globe who were dispersed when Old Attilan crashed in New York. In this issue they find a glass girl.
As an avid X-Men fan I was hesitant to try Inhuman comics… like I was betraying the X-Men but then I realised that was ridiculous. I loved the art and stories and look forward to the next issue, so glad I picked it up. It has some of the element I love about the X-Men plus some new elements to add to the mix. Almost makes me glad Fox got X-Men movie rights and forced Marvel’s hand to create a new superpowered group for the lime light in massive numbers. Bring on the Inhumans and Mutants… the more the merrier.
