The Inhumans are a [[TheKingdom monarchy]] whose Royal Family tends to be among their most powerful members; they also [[RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething go out and kick butt]] when necessary. Their king is ComicBook/BlackBolt, who besides being a FlyingBrick with [[ShockAndAwe electrical powers]] also has a voice that can literally destroy cities; he is thus forced to remain silent, communicating only by sign language (his wife, Medusa, often translates for him). Bolt's brother, Maximus, [[CainAndAbel hates him out of envy]] and has tried to usurp the crown many times. At one point their cousin Crystal had a romantic relationship with Johnny Storm (the Human Torch of the Fantastic Four) and has even been a member of that group and of ComicBook/TheAvengers. However she ended up marrying the mutant hero ComicBook/{{Quicksilver}} instead. They had a daughter, Luna, who has often been a target of villainous plans, what with being related not just to the Royal Inhumans but also to the ComicBook/XMen's foe ComicBook/{{Magneto}}.

* FromBadToWorse: Could describe the Inhumans and their situation going back a long while. First they had to hide from humans for centuries, then modern-day pollution got so bad they had to move to the Moon. Then, after M-Day Quicksilver stole their Terrigenesis crystals, which were then stolen by the U.S. government, who refused to give them back. The Inhuman reaction just caused America to declare war on the Inhumans, with none of their super-hero friends willing or able to help out, which led to Maximus finally taking charge of Attilan. Then the [[ComicBook/SecretInvasion Skrulls came after them]], at which point the Inhumans decided they were fed up of being everyone's punching bags.

'''The Inhumans''' are a [[HiddenElfVillage secret race]] of superhumans within the Franchise/MarvelUniverse. Although they started out as just background characters for the ComicBook/FantasticFour, they've since become involved with other characters and have even starred in their own series occasionally. Originally a single Inhuman, Medusa, was introduced as a villain in ''Fantastic Four'' #36 (March, 1965). Then her cousin Gorgon turned up in #44 (November, 1965), and the rest of the family in #45 (December, 1965).

The Inhumans are set to make their big screen debut in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse on a date to be determined. Kevin Feige also said that like ComicBook/BlackPanther, the Inhumans would be making their MCU debut somewhere else before their actual movie. This later turned out to be much earlier than expected via ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', Inhumans began appearing in Season 2's Winter finale.

* {{Foil}}: The Inhumans serve as this to Mutants as a whole. Both species are a super-powered minority of humans, but mutants are forced out of mainstream society by humanity, whilst the Inhumans choose to sequester themselves away from humans out of a mixture of xenophobia and arrogance. Both species have random powers that can potentially leave them hideously deformed, but the Inhumans deliberately trigger their powers through exposure to the Terrigenesis process whilst mutants have their powers develop unconsciously and spontaneously. Mutants are generally seen as a lesser race, struggling to survive in the face of human aggression, whilst the Inhumans live in contented isolation and, DependingOnTheWriter, may actually have the ability to just annihilate humanity if they ever decided they were sick of living in the middle of nowhere. In short, if mutants are like homosexuals, or African-Americans during the 1960s, then Inhumans are like the 1%ers
