Some time after the events of ''ComicBook/TheThanosImperative'', a group called the Universal Inhumans was discovered based on four other races, [[PettingZooPeople Kymellians]], [[ComicBook/ROMSpaceKnight Dire Wraiths]], [[Comicbook/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy Centaurians and Badoons]]. They too were products of Kree experiments with their people but were brought together under the prophecy that Blackbolt would lead them. Blackbolt would eventually led his Inhumans to assimilate with this new faction and leave the Kree empire and its people in Kree control. Although bad blood still existing between the Inhumans and Kree.

* BreakoutCharacter: With Marvel's attempts to expand the line in TheNewTens, ironically enough [[ComicBook/MsMarvel2014 Kamala Khan]] has become the most successful Inhuman comic book.

* ThisLooksLikeAJobForAquaman: Triton will sometimes get a mission or so that involves his swimming. Including his part during the ''Secret Invasion'' mini. During the ''ComicBook/WarOfKings'', he and other aquatic Inhumans played the role of shock troopers in battle since their lifetime of undersea combat training was useful in zero-g environments.

Added DiffLines:

* DeliberateValuesDissonance:
** On occasion, the fact that the Inhumans have been locked up in their isolated citadel for centuries is intentionally used to show how different they think.
** A flashback in ''Royals'' issue 3 has Black Bolt and Maximus' parents talking about that sister in-law of theirs, and her ''weird'' belief in treating the Alpha Primitives like... well, living beings. And then conversation turns to concerns with experimenting on their children in utero. The father doesn't get the problem.
-->'''Rynda:''' Mander's always been strange. Anyway, ''she'' thinks we shouldn't be experimenting on our children at ''all''.
-->'''Agon:''' ... well, whose children ''should'' we experiment on?

Outside of the royal family, Inhumans have been showing up in the MCU on ''Series/AgentsOfSHIELD'', with protagonist Creator/DaisyJohnson undergoing Terrigenesis in the second mid-season finale.

* DisposableSuperheroMaker: The Kree who came up with the uplifting program were murdered on the Supreme Intelligence's orders, once it realised their ideas were a threat. Of course, by that point they'd already seeded several planets.



* ThePurge: The original Kree program fell victim to one, when the Supreme Intelligence got spooked. It ordered the Accusers to destroy all the evidence, including the species that had been experimented on. Only the fact the scientists hadn't given it all the information saved the Universal Inhumans.
* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Zigzagged with the Dire Wraith and Badoon Inhumans. Typically, the two species are the trope played very straight, but their Inhuman versions are no better or worse than the rest of their kin.
* {{Retcon}}: Up until the mid-00s, the Terrigenesis came from Randac, an Inhuman scientist from many centuries after the Kree experiments, which had originally just given the early humans a boost in intelligence and strength. Come Jonathan Hickman's run of ''Fantastic Four'', it's claimed Terrigenesis was actually a Kree creation seeded in their minds.



* ShoutOut: The Dire Wraiths of the Universal Inhumans gain superpowers via inhaling some kind of spice. Jonathan Hickman is a ''big'' fan of ''Dune''.

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}}.
