TNTM: Marvel Comics Inhumans TV series on ABC

ABC and Marvel are teaming up again for another TV series based on a Marvel Comics title. The Inhumans will share continuity with the films and television series that are already in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).

Marvel has done very well translating their big name characters and titles into blockbusters. They have also had tremendous success bringing some of their lesser knowns into the limelight (Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, etc). We are hoping that trend continues with the Inhumans.

First Appearance of the Inhumans as a team was in Fantastic Four #45, 1965. They have been around the Marvel Universe on the periphery ever since then. They would bring them out once in a blue moon (no pun intended… see below reference their current base of operations). The Inhumans are not mutants in the same sense as a majority of the earth-bound superheroes and villains. Their beginnings are a little more involved.

Millions of years ago during the Kree-Skrull War, the Kree discovered sentient life on Earth. Upon further investigation they found the inhabitants of Earth had genetic potential invested in them by the Celestials. The Kree experimented on Earth’s primitive beings by splicing Eternals DNA into Cro-Magnons.

The Kree were investigating possible ways to work around their evolutionary stagnation. They were also seeking to create a powerful mutant race of soldiers to use against the Skrulls. They were successful in creating a strain of humans with extraordinary abilities. For unknown reasons the Kree abandoned their experiments.

These abandoned test subjects formed a society of their own and called themselves the Inhumans. They remained isolated from humans and developed advanced technology. The Inhumans city, Attilan, has frequently been relocated. It is currently located in the oxygen-bearing Blue Area of the Moon.

An Inhuman geneticist discovers Terrigen Mist. The Terrigen Mist is a natural mutagen derived as a vapor from Terrigen Crystals. The Mist has the ability to alter Inhuman biology. Sometimes the mutated subjects gain superhuman abilities.

In the past uncontrolled exposure to the Mists mutated the majority of the Inhuman population into hideously deformed monsters. After many centuries of eugenics and birth control, the Inhumans were able to mitigate the genetic damage caused by Terrigen Mists.

Inhumans will debut on IMAX screens on September 1, 2017. It is the first live action television series to debut in IMAX. It will play for two weeks in IMAX before the series premieres on ABC September 29. The first season will run for eight episodes.

There are many great Inhuman characters. If they do a good job developing those characters the show will be successful. If they rely too heavily on CGI and making Lockjaw a comedic character, they may be in trouble.

Tell us what you think about the upcoming Inhumans TV series. Who is your favorite Inhuman character? Do you think the series will be another home run for Marvel or will this be their first misstep?

TNTM: Top 10 comics list for December 2016

It’s a tie! The Top 10 comics for December are an even 50/50 split between Marvel and DC. None of the smaller publishers were able to crack the top 10 this month.

DC Comics again relied heavily on Batman related titles. All 5 of their top 10 comics have Batman in them. Batman #12 & 13, Dark Knight Master Race Book 7, All-Star Batman #5, and Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #1. Not sure if this is a statement about the popularity of Batman or if DC is just having trouble elevating another character to Bruce Wayne’s level.

2 of Marvel’s top 10 titles are in the Star Wars Universe. Star Wars #26 kicks off the Yoda story. We get to learn a little about the diminutive Jedi’s early exploits. Doctor Aphra #1 gives one of the newer Star Wars characters her own book. She is like Indiana Jones of outer space. She is accompanied by 2 re-purposed Imperial droids, 0-0-0 specializing in torture) and BT-1 (assassin droid). You’ll also see more of Black Krrsantan, a Wookie bounty hunter.

There are also 2 Marvel titles dealing with big fights in Inhumans vs X-men #1 and Civil War II #8. The last Marvel title in the top 10 is Hulk #1 which sees She-Hulk take over the mantle of “Hulk” as she wrestles with her growing inner rage.

Let us know what titles you are reading and why you believe they should be in the top 10. Just leave a note in the comments section.

TNTM: Top 10 Comics for November 2016

Marvel reverses their fortunes in November. The Top 10 for November makes it look even between Marvel and DC Comics.  If you expand your view out to the top 100 a different story is apparent.

Marvel has shook off their performance of the past few months and is the dominant publisher for the month of November.  They have a majority of the sales in November.  Even though Marvel is back on top, DC Comics has the top 2 spots overall with Batman #10 & #11.  In fact, all of DC Comics top 10 titles were Batman related.

DC Comics is leaning heavily on Bruce Wayne right now.  Marvel relied heavily on new titles for their top 10.  Invincible Iron Man #1, Amazing Spider-man:Renew Your Vows #1, Venom #1 and IVX (Inhumans vs X-men) #0 were all in the top 10 for Marvel.

Their only non-new title was Civil War II #7.  The only title not from the big 2 publishers was Walking Dead #160 from Image Comics.

TNTM: Inhumans vs X-men, Marvel’s Royal Rumble

Inhumans vs X-men will fight

Inhumans vs XmenIt appears Marvel has some big things planned starting in December.  Inhumans and Terrigen Mist have been popping up in their stories a lot lately.  We got Ms. Marvel when Kamala Khan was exposed to Terrigen Mist.  The TV show Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  has introduced the audience to Inhumans.  Even the comic books have been featuring the Inhumans much more than before.  Are we seeing a shift to Marvel using Inhumans rather than mutants?  When they aren’t able to use something in the Marvel Cinematic Universe it has a tendency to disappear from comic book pages as well (Fantastic Four, Wolverine, use of the word mutants).  It may seem petty at first glance, but they probably don’t want to help further someone else’s movie property on their dime.  It does force them to be creative with their characters and stories.  This could be a good thing if they don’t get silly trying to do it.

The Inhumans and the X-Men have been at odds as of late.  The tension between the two groups is scheduled to explode on the Marvel Comics pages in December.  The Inhumans and mutants will go to war against each other in Marvel’s “Inhumans vs. X-Men” event comic series.   When the dust has settled from this battle the “Resurrexion” event comic series will follow.  The Inhuman and Mutant factions are led by the Inhuman royal family and the X-Men respectively. While the two have joined forces in the past, it seems that the two-week survival period of the mutants forces them into trying to stop the Inhumans from advancing their plans.

Beast, a former X-Men who defected to the Inhumans, discovers that the mutant race only has two weeks left to live. This is a result of the Terrigen Mist.  The Mist is beneficial to Inhumans, but is toxic to mutants. Inhumans wish to spread the mist to awaken more of their kind, while mutants would be left to die if that were to happen.  This spells doom for the mutants as there is no cure for them being exposed to the mist.

The Inhumans are a race of super-powered individuals.  They were first introduced in Fantastic Four #45.  Inhumans have their powers awoken through being exposed to the Terrigen Mist. While the mist gives powers to people who are already Inhuman, the substance has no effect on normal humans. The only problem is the mist leaves mutants poisoned and sterile.

“Inhumans vs. X-Men” is scheduled to hit the shelves starting in December.  We will see if the mutants all die, if the Inhumans take over Marvel as their main characters, or maybe the mutants will be brought back as Inhumans as part of Resurrexion.
