    Of course not. The Inhumans have existed for over 50 years, mostly as side-characters. But they've had a number of mini series, some for their grouping(s) and some for various solo characters. They won't / can't fail. Marvel will just try to use them another way. They'll guest star again, if they must, and/or join other teams, Avengers, uncanny or not.

    The Inhumans have been here nearly the length of the entire Marvel Universe. They're not going anywhere and I guess I need to know why we have to admit they "failed". They have done as well or better as the various Nova, Captain Marvel, New/Secret Warriors and any number of other titles that don't always last for ever but do come back. Spider Woman. Dark Hawk. So on. Even the X-Men had to overcome not being very popular and not having a series for several years.

    Royals, Black Bolt and some of the other titles I need to catch up with. BB is an amazing comic by an amazing younger writer, Saladin Ahmed, who I actually know, though not well. I met him as a child and later as 12 year old who wanted me to teach him Tarot cards.

    I'm not sure what this proves, they were both acting viciously and over-emotionally because of Maximus with the "bug" he put in all their heads. It was mentioned I think in a couple pages before this how Black Bolt would have murdered Quicksilver if he wasn't held back. Right after this Medusa performs oral sex on Maximus, but I would never attribute that to her character because of the context, and likewise Black Bolt snapping at Medusa like that for mentioning their son isn't at all attributable to his character.

    No, Maximus was unable to control him.

    Did you not read the book? I mean really dude. Yes, Maximus failed to put Black Bolt completely under thrall, but he still had that thing inside of him just like everyone else, and even Luna and Medusa mentioned his strange behavior throughout. Also Maximus constructed this whole plan in an attempt to "break" Black Bolt and gain power.

    Maximus says right here that only Bolt resisted him. And Luna says in that other page that he's the only other one without the darkness in him. That doesn't make sense if he was being influenced like the others were.

    Let's break this down a bit

    In live action too soon to say the release via IMAX wasn't well received but the series may improve and at least get a few seasons time will tell

    In print I think it's too early to tell, as long as Marvel is behind them pumping out books can you call it a failure? Let me know in 5 years

    It's clearly conveyed throughout the story that something is very very wrong with Black Bolt. Yes, he resisted complete domination when others weren't able, but his behavior was way off from usual. Luna keeps mentioning how he's afraid when she's never known him to show fear, Medusa and Crystal both mentioned how he is usually the very definition of calm and disciplined, but is now acting increasingly nervous, temperamental, and downright violent. I mean he probably would have murdered Pietro if he wasn't interrupted, and was very quick to get violent with Madrox.

    Yep, because we haven't already had enough M-Day versions since M-Day just from the X-Men that we now need it for the Inhumans. I'm absolutely fine with my original stories for Inhumans thanks

    Honestly if Marvel ever wanted to drop the Inhuman push the fact they usually live in secluded cities they'd probably just move someplace hidden again.

    yeah pretty much, Reader could easily gather all Inhumans in one place, the royals say they're leaving and people like Kamala, Quake and Moon Girl probably stay behind.

    Yeah, they're done. I'd imagine this time two years the only inhuman book on the market will be Ms Marvel. It's hard to not be....joyful about this as an X-Men fan. I do feel sorry for some Inhuman fans, the ones who knew what Marvel were trying to do, and why it was wrong. As for the others who denied it to the ground? Well, i guess this is what you get when you cross X-Men fans lol.
