ABC‘s Inhumans (2017) TV show teaser stars Iwan Rheon and Isabelle Cornish. Inhumans‘ plot synopsis: “The Inhumans, a race of superhumans with diverse and singularly unique powers, were first introduced in Marvel Comics by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby in 1965. Since that time, they have grown in prominence and become some of the most popular and iconic characters in the Marvel Universe. “Marvel’s The Inhumans” will explore the never-before-told epic adventure of Black Bolt and the royal family.”

Yesterday saw the release of audience’s first look at the Inhumans royal family. In the Inhumans teaser, Maximus (Iwan Rheon) talks about his brother Black Bolt, who is unable to speak (because of his power) yet is king of the Inhumans. I believe the woman that he is speaking to is Crystal (Isabelle Cornish).

This brother-on-brother conflict is inherent to the dynamic between Maximus and Black Bolt in their comic book incarnations.  That conflict is being carried over to their television incarnations as well.

On the strife between Maximus and Black Bolt in Inhumans:

Maximus, an Inhuman, was the second son of two of Attilan’s top geneticists, Agon, the head of the ruling Council of Geneticists, and Rynda, director of the Prenatal Care Center. Subjected to the DNA-altering Terrigen Mist when he was an infant, Maximus peculiarly showed no outward sign of any mutagenic change. As he matured, he hid his developing psionic powers from the community, but was less successful at disguising his antisocial tendencies. When he was about sixteen, his elder brother Black Bolt was released from the protective chamber in which he had been confined since birth due to the destructive nature of his Terrigen mutation. One of Maximus’s first responses to his brother’s freedom was an unsuccessful attempt to make him release his power and prove Black Bolt could not control his sonic powers, and thus lose his freedom.

On Maximus’ special abilities and gifts:

Maximus has a genius-level intellect and great inventiveness….He is an extraordinarily gifted inventor, with advanced knowledge of physics, mechanics, and biology.

His mental powers granted by the mutagenic effects from exposure to Terrigen Mist give him the ability to numb, override, and even efface a person’s mind. He has the ability to induce short-term amnesia in others, and the ability to exchange his consciousness with another’s.

Inhumans also stars Ken Leung, Anson Mount, Serinda Swan, Eme Ikwuakor, Mike Moh, and Sonya Balmores.
