Comic Book Révolution > Marvel Universe > F!@# the Inhumans


Posted by: Kaiolino Oct 31 2014, 05:44 PM
In this topic we'll discuss Marvel's pathetic attempts to make the Inhumans a big thing and discuss how they're failing at it.

Here's an up to date article mentioning the pathetic attempts: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2014/10/31/marvels-plan-to-make-you-like-the-inhumans-more-than-the-x-men-continues/

As for the failure, the most recent Inhuman issue sold 30,000 copies, less than Magneto's ongoing (which double shipped that month) and similar to Wolverine and the X-Men (a book that is being relaunched).

They'll never get it right as long as they keep those characters tbh.

Aside from Medusa, Ms Marvel (who isn't in the main book) and Karnak (who is dead), I'm failing to see potential in any of them.

Black Bolt and Maximus are both one note.

Gorgon is ...who cares.

The NuHumans are even worse. Dante literally has the blandest set of characteristics and his design is really uninspired. The others have barely been given a personality (yet ?).

The book itself has a lot of different concepts (inhuman clans who feel differently about the royals, the terrigen, etc...) but it feels a lot like they're throwing shit at the wall and seeing what sticks. One concept has barely been given a sense of gravitas, when the next one is already introduced.

Overall Inhuman (the book) isn't terrible but the whole thing lacks genuineness.

I'm sort of intentionally going counter-culture with the RR semi-fandom, but these fake-ass mutant wannabes can get ALL of my hate, normally reserved for disinterested comic book editors.

Fuck'em. Especially the redhead.

Posted by: MacManus Oct 31 2014, 07:42 PM
racism/sexism/homophobia aren't counter-culture.

Posted by: Fringe Division Oct 31 2014, 07:56 PM
Here we go.

As for the actual topic, maybe if they'd let the Inhumans be the fucking Inhumans, we'd at least be getting decent material about them.

Posted by: Phoenix Egg Oct 31 2014, 08:01 PM
What are the Inhumans really?

I just see off-brand mutants.

And that's all the creators see.

Posted by: MacManus Oct 31 2014, 08:05 PM
I liked that they had a base on the Moon. Selene should steal that. What is more creepy than a sexy vampire goddess with an army zombie stationed on the moon.

It would be Selene's post-Arkea saving grace if she went full vamp massacre on Inhumans Moon Capitol.

Didn't Morrison once suggest a magical wankathon to drum up sales of one of his books? What does one do to magically ruin a book? Abstain from all sexual activity including self-love while thinking really hard about how much you hate the Inhumans?

Posted by: vitamin Dec 2 2014, 01:45 PM
1. Yes, he appealed to The Invisibles readers to masturbate themselves into oblivion and disperse their sexual energy to boost up the books sales.

2. The same thing, only during climax you think Inhumans book FAIL.

3. We need to do hate self-sex.

4. I need to see peopleses opinions in black and white.

we might need to profile him to know if he works better under threat or under praise of his artistic talent and endless adoration for his work.

Marvel's FCBD offering will have a special Fetch-Men story: http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=58709

This marks the third time in a little over a year where Marvel is giving Fetch-Men comics away for free in some way.

I liked it. I gave it and a bunch of my individual issues to friends when I moved. I, of course, kept some individual issues for myself, including the awesome Chris Claremont X-Men Christmas Special that was sandwiched between the end of Austen's run and the beginning of Milligan's run. I loved it too much to give it away.

Probably. He is open about the fact he's taken narcotics in the past, mostly hallucinations. He's the nicest guy in person, though. From what I've heard, he is well spoken, friendly, and always eager to interact with fan at conventions. He's been completely transparent when it comes to talking about his work, his inspiration for his work, and that he has used drugs.

Posted by: CBREV Jan 30 2015, 06:32 AM
I know he really did get hospitalized for a long time at some point. I don`t remember if it was soon after he requested the magik ritual? Seems like it didn't work. And after that he started writing junk like JLA.

LOL, I know Grant Morrison was actually hospitalized. I was pretty sure it had something to do with his drug habit. He really abused the hallucinogens, and from what I know, they were quite potent. Not the mass produced bargain bin shrooms people buy from their friendly, yet shady neighborhood dealer.

Posted by: Supernature Jan 30 2015, 12:16 PM
LOL Three titles centered around the same two characters. Can't wait to see them all sell 20k a month.

I've already lost interest in the book Fetch-Men like 3 months ago. It's too mediocre to be invested in.

Posted by: vitamin Jan 31 2015, 05:37 AM
Yeah, Morrison said the wankathon backfired on him and since he employed method writing while working on Invisibles, the same shit that was happening to King Mob, happened to him (some face-eating bacteria), and then his cat died and then he had Jesus Christ vision and probably got better.

While he was writing NXM, he got into serious depression and wanted to kill himself by jumping off his hotel room. That's how depressing X-men lives are, people.

Yeah, that was a really heavy time for the two of them. Those two had been working together on so many projects so closely. When their friendship ended it was like gutting a Siamese twin in half and both missing key parts in the aftermath.

They had some really crazy and awesome treatments lined up for Marvel and DC. I wish they were able to implement them, but some of the modified ideas did make it to print.

This is true, but I found an article three years ago when I was diving deep into the bowels of the internet. It contained a short list of ideas that the two of them came up with together, and boy were some of them far out there, but in a great way.

Morrison still used much of the Superman related material, while Millar ended up retaining much of the concept ideas when he was asked to help start several other teams and characters in Marvel's Ultimate Universe.

Posted by: foddington Jul 27 2015, 09:23 AM
The X-Men have four sentinels among their ranks not including this person or Wolverine.

Fantomex is a sentinel and so are the Stepford Cuckoos. They were revealed to be experiments in Sublime's Weapon Plus Program in Morrison's New X-Men, specifically mentioned in Attack on Weapon Plus and Here Comes Tomorrow.

The Cuckoos are Weapon XIV- a psychic hive mind made to look like attractive young girls. The explanation of how Sublime harvested Emma's eggs was dropped from New X-Men because of office politics trying to boot Morrison out of Marvel.

Sad, but also true.

Marvel "wants" darker characters...just not too dark.

But lets face it, even if "Karima" was "white washed", Marvel would still try to pass her off as a shining example for their diverse line-up.

Robinson also made Toro an Inhuman with basically no explanation, too, didn't he?

I'm actually kind of surprised that the guy we thought was Beast didn't turn out to be some "new" Inhuman rip-off rather than the real deal.

Posted by: ohsnapulon5000 Jul 27 2015, 03:45 PM
We all know Beast is just there under the pretense of "studying" the Inhuman genome "up close" instead of him finally being among other genetic supremacists like himself....

Posted by: Phoenix Egg Jul 27 2015, 05:58 PM
Boring NotMutants. Boring NotMutant discussion. Boring Beast hate (guys, stop being marks and hating characters Marvel tells you to hate. Srs.)

I'm calling a move to ignore the NotMutants entirely, tbh.

It's fine. MCU is already burning out with the mainstream and Shithumans print efforts all bombed despite the AAA talent and push. It's a hole Marvel/disney can keep shoveling investment into if they want but it'll never happen.

Emma is a genetics supremacist. Xavier is a genetics supremacist. Magneto is a genetics supremacist. Cyclops is a genetics supremacist.

Beast just wants to educate and cultivate the young minds of future generations so they have an education, and aren't stuck in mutant ghettos or being conscripted into romanticized paramilitary groups. He also just wants to save the world on occasion.

Their approach to try and make the Inhumans happen has seemed backward. They should have just trotted out a movie and checked the reception there and then gone ahead with this weird take over. Comics don't have enough pull with general audiences and in pop culture anymore to make this push work. If the Inhumans movie comes after the next Cap, BP and Dr. Strange films then yikes. Talk about oversaturation.

Plus you have the issue of new characters not really taking off. The Inhumans they are pushing are terrible. Outside of the royal family no one I have ever met gave a damn about random inhumans. They don't even have the entire royal family for this project. It is a mess.

But I'm kind of into the trainwreck of a company actually spiting itself. It's so strange to watch.

All super powered individuals are "inhuman." Read Warren Ellis' SuperGod.

They are simply walking, talking biological weapons of mass destruction. Mutant, Meta-Human, Inhuman, Morlock, Cosmic powered, and so on. They don't think like baseline humans because they aren't baseline humans.

Mutants, especially, are different because their powers are genetic. That definitely affects how they develop as a person.

His star rose (for better and for worse) in 70s when he joined Avengers.

who was a funny guy scientist. He was a little like deadpool, only less mouthy,

Beast was also a member of Defenders.
Of course, only marvel could ruin a character with such huge following, to the point, that most people hate beast nowadays.

They did the same with wolverine (albeit for different reasons, and I will always

That's why I am a huge fan of creator owned comics, and follow their works. When someone like Ellis, Morrison, Gillen, or Vaughan does some DC or Marvel work I'm likely to buy it because I am a fan of their work. It's less I am a fan of the X-Men, Avengers, Justice League, Thunderbolts, or whatever team or solo book, and more I want to see what my favorite writers did with the material.

Otherwise, my comic collection is almost exclusively creator owned, independent runs written by my favorite writers. Literally half my collection is written by Warren Ellis. The other half includes runs or works by Brian K. Vaughan, Brian Talbot, Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis, Kieron Gillen, Alison Bechdel, and Charlie Huston.

Posted by: Patrick Jul 31 2015, 05:33 AM
X-men are probably the only mainstream comic I care about, a lot due
to how great I consider the characters. Of all mainstream comics, batman and x-men
have the most captivating / interesting mythos, with x-men possessing also a depth
missing from any other comic book, and I don't necessarily mean the civil rights thing.

I used to also like spidey, batman, but spider-man is dead for me,
and batman... how many times you can read a new batman story without
being bored? And Lobo... poor Lobo.

Otherwise, I read european or dark horse stuff.
I collect usagi yojimbo, thorgal, sillage / the wake, used to get hellboy, but the story got
really boring and one note.

I never followed writers, but I always followed artists, which is why I was
trying to get any comic pencilled by mignola, or kelley jones.
nowadays I own most of the comics worth owning, so it's less pressure,
especially that rarely there is something new that would grab my attention.

I guess that's why Marvel is hedging its bets and reassigning the popular A-List characters to other books outside of X-Men.

Cyclops and Beast are now going to be in Inhumans, Rogue is in some Avengers' book, who knows where Emma Frost faffed off to, and the new big three for the X-Men are Storm, Nightcrawler, and Colossus.

All three of which are nowhere as popular in recent years as they once were. Storm sells, but Nightcrawler and Colossus don't sell books.

Posted by: Beezzi Aug 19 2015, 05:38 PM
Oh Storm does not sell - one of the worse solo performances in x-history kinda sealed that. Even with the mediocre nature of the book- if Storm was a selling point, people would've bought it. (People have bought far more mediocre shit just for a character.) Her over exposure, weird marriage and constantly changing characterisation means she no longer pulls in the numbers either.

I'd pray we could get Rogue back, but UA and being Wanda's security blankey has kinda shot her characterisation to hell as well...and anyway, she's covered in Lamevenger....inside and out now.

Let's pray for Forge's future.

Luckily, X-fans are desperate and will still buy Ex-Men, but no one cares enough to save the the bloody Unmutants, so these books will peter out after the hype machine runs out. If any of these characters were gonna catch on, they would've done it decades ago.

I wonder if Gambit will be shipped off to a non-X-book as well once his movie comes out or if Marvel will just keep him in limbo (though I guess he might be one of the unrevealed members in UXM).

Posted by: Beezzi Aug 19 2015, 05:50 PM
Maybe, but Gambit has been hit by the anti-90s bias stick in a pretty bad way - he's been relegated to guest star status in this new universe it seems...

The film might bump him up the Marvel ladder, but I doubt it. His problem is the current flock of writers, not his popularity.

Posted by: Kaiolino Aug 19 2015, 05:52 PM
There is no anti-90s bias. Gambit had a 17 issue solo by an excellent creative team just 3 years ago.

Posted by: Beezzi Aug 19 2015, 06:03 PM
Yeah, which out preformed both Storm and Nightcrawler's solo's till the last issue (over a longer span of time), but for some reason he doesn't get to be a regular in a main book and Nighcrawler does? Why does Colossus deserve a spot? He can't even help sell a team book - in how may below average sales books has he been in over the last few years?

I wasn't talking about three years ago - I was talking about the wonderful Aaron/Bendis X-era, which seems to be continuing...You don't shove one of the franchises most well known faces in a book like X-Factor if you support him.

See no 90's bias at all....Gumbo just got lost in the shuffle somehow. A character who a major studio thinks can sell a whole film - can't even get on the promotional poster for a post SW title.

(Funny thing is - Gambit was one of the only things that kept X's solo going for as long as it did. That book was guest star central at its end- Liu knew what sold. Poor Cajun...)

Edit: I suppose we could argue that it's another sign of Marvel purposefully sabotaging the franchise. But I think this goes hand in hand with Marvel's head writers general attitudes towards certain characters.

Anywhoo, this most likely belongs on the Ex-Men thread as a discussion. So just for the sake of staying on topic...BOO Unmutants!

It's too late now. Marvel/Disney has made their choice. Mutants are out and Inhumans are in.

Expect less X-Men and more Inhumans. Comic book readers are extremely apathetic. The extent of our "activism" is bitching on message boards. The vast silent majority still buy Marvel Comics regardless of disliking editorial mandated directions.

That's who I was referring to by the silent majority. Most of them do exactly was you described in your post. Especially the Marvel silent majority. No discerning taste or critical analysis.

All they do is read any bullshit put in front of them, or they buy it because it's in their pull list and never really bother to ever get around to reading the shit they buy.

I knew some comic book readers who had long pull lists, but never read the comics they bought. When I asked them about it, they said it was habit, or they were completionists.

well thanks to the badhumans push, a certain infamous image board
has now 10 quality x-related threads per day, so at least there is 1 win.
add it to the fact that those who liked badhumans, aren't happy with the
new direction. add it to the fact that newbies, whether they want it or not,
will be aware that badhumans are x-men rip-off, because it's the first thing anyone
says in any badhumans-related thread anywhere. plus add it to the fact that both
aou and ant-man, while earned money, aren't considered a success to the point that
ike and co were fired from marvel studios, and more changes are coming.

also, the x-men are getting more press and coverage each day.

it's simply a matter of time, when things will be back to normal, but yes
this and next year are going to be tough, if you are a fan of superhero comics.
which is why I am reading Conan and Jungle stories, something I didn't like
year ago, but decided to give it a try.

and so much the right thing you did. it's nice to see you in a more elaborative (sic) mode. usually your posts are very short.

I appreciated especially a comment about 1987 x-books. I feel like I should start an educational thread,
detailing the evolution of amount of x-books and related stuff over decades.

but of course, only if there is demand. otherwise, nope, not going to bother.

We have this saying "don't summon the wolf out of forest" ( let sleeping dogs lie?), meaning that it's better to not use certain keywords, if you don't want to invite certain people

ANYWAY, I was thinking, and thinking, and thinking on why oh why
Moon Girl is an inhuman. It felt random, desperate, nonsensical, etc.

And then I realized that both original Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur are... canonically mutants.

Frankly, I never considered them one, but if that was the reason that they
made Moon G i r l fetchgirl..... I mean, this sounds like a far stretch, right?
Not to mention, r e t a r d e d and petty. Oh god, it really WAS the reason, was it?

SPOILERS:
While reading Ka-Zar, I noticed something disturbing that marvel would
exploit. You see, in the first proper volume there is a mention of some mystical
m i s t s that affect people genetically, and that are responsible for the existence of savage land.

I really hope that m a r v e l cunts will never read this post, because we know what would happen, and given
how much Savage Land means to X-Men lore, I would go full phoenix if it was another thing being stolen.

Rich specifically said that publicly Inhumans is not canned yet
However, there are so far talks about shelving inhumans in favor
of better properties (ie. virtually everything else)
which is why Ant-Man and Wasp was announced and possibly there might be Gotg 3.

"Secretly a black guy?" Peggy, staph please. We don't need another "vagina people" episode.

However, Vin Diesel is a homosexual. I'd let him use me for my body,any time, any day. The guy is super sexy. So I can forgive his questionable taste in movies he starred in.

The Riddick character has his charms, but those are some really dumb movies. I still will watch all three when they come on tv. The third had Katee Sackhoff, who is my Caity Lotz, that movie has more rewatch value than the other two.

I know Claudia Black was in Pitch Black, but she was killed off very early in the movie. I wish she had more screen time, as I love Claudia Black.

Just read Uncanny Inhumans #1, good lord what a shameless X-Men rip-off. I honestly had no idea it was quite this bad. It's nauseating really that no one can come up with an original concept for the Inhumans. Every single thing in that book was lifted from superior franchises. The Inhumans had a good thing going, why ruin it by making them bargain-bin X-Men? The idea of slave-owning aristocrats fighting against prejudice and injustice leaves a bitter taste in my mouth.

If we're admitting this outside of CBReich, the judgement and the bans. I'm the same way. SDAing things kept me in comics when money was tight in college. Afterwards I got back into the x-books, first by LCS, then by digital in 2011, but SDA everything else. It allows me to branch out on my shit budget and make sure I give every penny I have available to X-Creators to let Marvel know how I'm voting with my wallet.

She did say she quit the X-Men after Cyclops called her a [lady of the night].

Face it, Inhumans>X-Men at this point.

Extraordinary X-Men is a half assed recycled mess, and Uncanny X-Men is the continuation of Remender's Uncanny X-Force. X-Men is bringing absolutely nothing to the table.

Long live the X-Men, indeed.

All the a-list X-Men are being shipped to Avengers or Inhumans comics.

Posted by: Phoenix Egg Dec 1 2015, 06:14 PM
I hope it's Emma. The chances of her disavowing the X-Men entirely to claim the Inhumans are nil, and it would be fantastic to see her make some new relationships happen, be they lovers, friends or enemies.

This could mean growth for her (finally), and Asmuth can write. It could be good.

I mean...I still wouldn't pay for the shit, but I'd keep my eye on what happens in it at least, which is about all that I can say for any other non-Mutie Marvel production at this point.

Posted by: Fod_2K16 Dec 1 2015, 10:16 PM
The only Marvel/X-men characters I actually cared about were Beast, Emma Frost, Abby Brand, and Cyclops.

Sure there are others I like at one point or another, such as Storm, Jean Grey-Summers (Morrison's version), Armor, Kitty Pryde, Pete Wisdom, Songbird, and a few others.

Now that Abby is in permanent limbo, Beast is a dick, Cyclops has been irrevocably ruined for me because of the way he treated Emma Frost, and Emma being stripped down to token girlfriend.

Marvel killed my interest in their company. Way to go Marvel. At one point I was buying the individual issues and hardcover editions of at least 5 different Marvel comics at one point.

Now, zero. NONE. I used to be an avid Thunderbolts fan. I defended X-Men Forever on both Marvel and CBR forums, as well as in my local comic book store.

We had a few regulars shaking their head on why there is another 2nd inhumans book for no reason a few others that said without the mcniven art and a 4.99 price point no chance, You saw how marvel made sure to put out the press release about the important spider man apperance in issue 5 for march beacuse this is only what i heard is the number preorder wise came in very low for all new inhumans one and the drop to issue 2 is what my one source told me dangerously low. Marvel is still gonna promote the hell out of and mention the x-men guest stars as much as possible and no disrepect to the creators would love to see asmus on a x-type book again but hopefully they end this travesty by issue 6

This story was hinted since the 70s
Too bad taht marvel are idiots.

I don't want them to discover that today.
You know, I was literally the first person to point out that Inhumans were uncanny before X-Men.

Lycaon Pictus should be able to weigh in on this and correct me if I am wrong, but I think it takes at least three generations of inbreeding before birth defects and malignant mutations begin to manifest in the offspring.

I don't condone inbreeding, but there is a common misconception that inbreeding immediately produces deformed offspring in the next generation.

It depends entirely on what genetic defects and diseases are already present in the family. Breeding with a close relation means there's a higher risk that the child will be born with any defects or diseases present in your genome, since there's a higher risk that your mate also carries the same defects and diseases if you're related.

This is true. Which is why many members of the royal families in Europe and Russia were prone to illnesses and died of genetically based diseases.

Inhumans used to be cool.
No offense, but you are casuals.
Mutants / Deviants vs Inhumans / Eternals.
It was bound to happen.
But god forbid now, when mutants are treated like lepers.

Simple question, what have you done to proclaim mutant kingdom?
I post feels, and tell stories about sad issues with x-men.
Acts speak louder than words

So Shithumans wasn't just Ike, but the entire Creative Committee pushing it? Who else was on it besides Quesada and Bendis? And no wonder Bendis tried to destroy the X-Men, he was the enemy's inside man(baby).

Buckley and Fine. Probably others, but those are the other two that matter.

Still trying to make it look like a big thing by launching the show in theaters, but everyone knows this is a pathetic downgrade.

By having IMAX co-fund they can do a TV show with movie special effects.

And CBR buts in as Marvel's PR with the piece called INHUMANS: 15 REASONS MARVEL’S NON-MUTANTS DESERVE YOUR LOVE

We should love them bc:
- 15. An Inhuman World Is A Cleaner World: they basically live in a genetic clean world and toxin free
- 9. Inhumans Are the Future (Worse yet, the Terrigen Gas afflicts some mutants with the deadly M-Pox disease, pushing their species closer to extinction yet again. Far from karmic fairness given what mutants have already endured, the rise of Inhumans and NuHumans does mean the theme of outcasts who are born differently can continue in a new form. ..... I wonder why wasn't it phrased mutants were killed so their theme could be stolen by their killers?)
- 8. Tough Genetic Love (Can you say FUCK YEAH EUGENICS WE LOVE IT AND WANT IT)
- 7. Defiant Freedom Fighters ??????????
- 5. A Lifeline for Post-Decimation Mutants (I don't know why they noted this bc the passage says Quickie fucked it up badly. I guess writer run out of good reasons to love non-mutants)
- 1. Unlimited Live-Action Potential


Can we notice how the tittle of the piece mentions Inhumans as non-mutants and throughout mutants are mentioned several times as being hurt by the Inhumans but hey love the Inhumans bc MOVIE MIGHT BE IN THE WORKS AND THEY ARE BaSICALLY MUTANTS BUT ARE NOT?

What a lousy ressurrection this will be if the Inhumans get all the good writers and we're stuck with the likes of Lemire.

Posted by: Kaiolino Nov 21 2016, 10:36 AM
Lemire won't be back. He hates writing a book that nobody likes. He's too used to adoring fans.

Posted by: Kaiolino Nov 21 2016, 12:23 PM
Note how Shithumans fans first attack X-Men fans and then pretend they're victims of fanbase bullying.

Seems like they might've retrofitted that upcoming/abandoned "X-Men/mutants fuck off into space" story.

And we'll never be royals,
It don't run in our blood,
That kind of luxe just ain't for us.
We crave a different kind of buzz.

Your alts are really transparent. Maybe not immediately default to complaining about Cyclops or mocking Marvel for their Shithumans push within your first 5 posts.

It's like if a new poster immediately went off-topic in a thread by talking about Warren Ellis and posting 5 scans of random Warren Ellis comics. We'd all know who it is.

All Phoenix Egg. Which you know. Because you are him/me/us.

BTW, really disappointed you didn't use someone who immediately starts talking about Sara Lance and Emily VanCamp's Hair as an example of an obvious sock puppet account.

She's doing movies besides Cap?

BTW, now I'm the one who's really dissappointed because you didn't surprise me with some amazing gifs of the Hair.

Posted by: Marty Stein Nov 21 2016, 09:37 PM
I remember reading something about some indie movie she may have done in the past year or something? I don't know.

Avengers Assemble introduces the Inhuman Registration Act and Wacker admits they are indoctrinating little kids into loving the Inhumans.

QUOTE
    I think the Inhumans, thematically, they also work for us because of kids. They look like everybody else, but they're different. They feel different, they have different powers, but sometimes it's not visible to the naked eye. Lots of kids feel different. There are a lot of kids who don't necessarily feel like everybody else. It shows how to embrace who you are and sometimes people don't always understand you but you're special. You have your own gifts and that also plays into the Inhuman story as well. Thematically, it's a great story for kids.

Tbh I'd watch it if it was porn. Since this is sirius biz, I'll just chuckle.
