* AbusiveParent: He outright forces his daughter Alecto to go through Terrigenesis, repeatedly, even when she made it clear she ''really'' didn't want to go through with it, out of fear of what it was turning her into. She even ran away because of it, and yet Gorgon just ignored her and made her do it anyway.

She even ran away because of it, and yet Gorgon just ignored her and made her do it anyway. He forced the same thing on his son whose terrigenesis was not only debilitating, it put him into a coma.


* ButtMonkey: After he gets de-powered, he gets his ass kicked by Corvus Glaive for trying to swipe Corvus's territory and spends months in prison eating slop. It goes downhill from there once he meets Death herself.



* DePower: He was conquering planets with his new-found Inhuman powers, when a coven of the mightiest Black Order sorcerers come and take his powers away.
* FateWorseThanDeath: Wielding the Phoenix Force, he fought his re-powered daddy at the God Quarry where old gods go to die. The guardians of the quarry, [[CosmicEntity the Sisters of Eternity]] banish the Phoenix Force out of him and his dad kicks his ass and drops him in the God Quarry to spend eternity in the opposite of a LotusEaterMachine.



* LikeFatherLikeSon: ''Infinity'' states he goes on to become a bigger evil than Thanos ever was. Remember, Thanos once killed half the universe...

to:

* LikeFatherLikeSon: ''Infinity'' states he goes on to become a bigger evil than Thanos ever was. Remember, Thanos once killed half the universe... He also goes and becomes a lover of the embodiment of Death just like his pop.


* BigBadWannabe: His appearances after Infinity has him being manipulated by Maw into fulfilling his heritage as Thanos' son, and he does become a threat for a time, but [[EvilerThanThou bigger threats]] swat him every time. Besides always being a pawn, he probably has some [[IAmNotMyFather subconscious reluctance to be like his father]] in the first place.
* ContainmentClothing: Ebony Maw provides him with a suit that reduces the range of his powers to direct contact.



* RealityWarper: His ''other'' power.

to:

* RealityWarper: His ''other'' power.power, vaguely described as "rewriting the economics of existence" whatever that means. Untrained it just reduces every unprotected person around him to ashen bones. It's never explored past that.

Added DiffLines:

* DependingOnTheArtist: What exactly is going on with that band across her hair is inconsistent. Is it an actual band keeping her hair tied together? Is it just a color pattern on her hair? Is it even always there?


* KilledOfForReal: Dies a second time more permanently when Reader uses his powers to turn him into braille writing on a window and then shatters it.

to:

* KilledOfForReal: KilledOffForReal: Dies a second time more permanently when Reader uses his powers to turn him into braille writing on a window and then shatters it.


* SemanticSuperpower: Literally, as his powers are based on reading and interpreting words to context. When the Attilans need a mass projection into the astral plane to deal with a threat, Maxmimus finds a solution in him by coming up with the made-up word [[PerfectlyCromulentWord "Floob"]] with that effect as its definition.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: In his initial appearance in ''Mighty Avengers'', he was a conflicted AntiVillain who was cast out for trying to get rid of the Slave Engine. Come his reappearance in [[ComicBook/CharlesSoulesInhumans Charles Soule's run]], he's a CardCarryingVillain who wants to take over the entire world for the Inhumans[[label note:*]] Possibly because the context of his initial characterization made the Inhumans UnintentionallyUnsympathetic[[/label note]].

Added DiffLines:

* SuperpowerLottery: His power from terrigenesis is the ability to ''rig the lottery'' for himself described as "living terrigenesis". He can choose what power he develops at will, the only limit appearing to be using one at a time. After his initial appearance, this became temporary and dependent on regular exposure to terrigen.


* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: A HannibalLecture of a cultist in his solo series dismantles him and his worldview; His parents refusing him Terrigenesis as an infant because of what happened to Triton and sending him to the monastery has given him a complex. His StrawNihilist attitude is because he [[IJustWantToBeSpecial wants to be special]] but has internalized from his parents' decision and the teachings of the monastery a desire [[IJustWantToBeNormal to stay normal]] with the belief he's perfect the way he is but the CognitiveDissonance makes him tears down others, whether they are actually special or believe themselves to be, because in fact what's special about him is taught and not unique. Essentially he's too afraid to decide for himself to undergo terrigenesis, rationalizes it to himself, and lashes out at everyone from the stress. Expanded on by the nameless painter in issue 5 of his first solo series.

However, seconds later, he creates a ''new arm'' out of magma/lava that eventually cools back into a charred version of his arm that heals with time. It's a surprise to both himself and the reader when he notes that "this feels right" as it's happening.]]

* PunnyName: Dante's Inhuman alias is [[Literature/DantesInferno Inferno]]. He self-admits that it's kind of "on the nose", but embraces the name nonetheless.

* CrazyPrepared: When Maximus plans ahead, he really plans ahead. In ''Silent War'', Luna sees a strange parasitic thing inside Ahura, Medusa and Black Bolt's head, and notes it looks like Maximus' mind. He states that he'd placed those parasitic thoughts in their minds years ago.
* CursedWithAwesome: ''Royals'' issue 3 reveals that [[spoiler:Maximus can, on occasion, see every moment of his life, including all the days that haven't been yet, and that's part of the reason for his madness.]]

* GadgeteerGenius: Maximus is a pretty skilled inventor. It's just that on occasion some of his inventions can, in a certain light, be utterly horrific things that should never see the light of day. One in particular can turn human minds to mush. Black Bolt actually had an entire room designed to store Maximus' dangerous inventions (though it's never said whether it's because they were too dangerous to be disassembled, or just in case he ever needed to use them). Funnily enough, during ''War of Kings'', Maximus was put in charge of the Inhuman's tech, and was actually overworked because of it.

* MeaningfulName: Agon and Rynda choose to call their second son Maximus in order to make sure he didn't feel overshadowed compared to Black Bolt.
* MindControl: His main ability. He doesn't necessarily need powers to do it. Sometimes the right words do just as well. During Civil War 2, he outright states that he doesn't like the use the power directly since total control bores him compared to just rolling with chaos.
