Revision as of 13:57, May 14, 2016

History

Inhuman Culture

Language

Inhumans speak their own language, Tilan, but also learn human languages such as English, Russian and Chinese.[5]

Inhuman Biology

Terrigenesis

The Terrigenesis is the source of most of the Inhumans' powers. Please consult the page for more information.

Diseases

Inhumans are subject to diseases, among them "Gral's disease", a hereditary disease that expresses as extreme weakness in the sick Inhuman. It is not fatal if caught in time.[6]

Alternate Universe Inhumans

The Inhumans are present in many realities, with more or less important variations in their history, appearances, biology.

Powers and Abilities

Powers

Varies, if any. Even without using the Terrigen Mist, the Kree modifications, combined with centuries of selective breeding have given all Inhumans certain advantages. Their average lifespan is 150 years, and an inhuman in good physical condition possesses strength, reaction time, speed, and endurance that are all superior to the finest of human athletes.[5]

  • Enhanced Strength An average (unmodified by Terrigen) Inhuman in good physical condition can lift one ton.[5]
  • Enhanced Speed An average (unmodified by Terrigen) Inhuman in good physical condition is slightly faster than Captain America, and thus superior to the finest human athlete.[5]
  • Enhanced Reflexes An average (unmodified by Terrigen) Inhuman in good physical condition has reflexes slightly superior to Captain America's, and is thus superior to the finest human athlete.[5]
  • Enhanced Endurance The endurance of an average (unmodified by Terrigen) Inhuman in good physical condition is slightly superior to Captain America's, and is thus superior to the finest human athlete.[5]

The Inhumans were meant by the Kree scientist who created them to be a "deadly weapon of cosmic scale", "Galactus-level weapons".[7]

Average Strength level

Karnak and other normal Inhumans who are in excellent physical shape, can lift 1 ton and are physically slightly superior to the peak of normal human physical achievement.

Weaknesses

Due to their closed society, Inhumans have a far lower threshold to disease and pollution than ordinary humans.

Habitat

Habitat: Attilan, same as Earth
Gravity: Same as Earth
Atmosphere: Same as Earth, though with no germs or pollution
Population: At present there are about 1,230 living Inhumans, all of whom dwell in Attilan.

Miscellaneous

Type of Government: Monarchy
Level of Technology: Mostly Genetic Manipulation, though in general superior to Earth standard. Echo-Technology, which utilizes power from vibranium capacitors that store whispers of Black Bolt, includes; Echo-Skeleton Armour and Echo-Weapons (designed by Maximus).[8]
Cultural Traits: Miscegenation Prohibition, Rigid Caste System, Conformists
Representatives: * Black Bolt

Notes

  • Inhumans were once stated by Dal Damoc to be the products of Kree experiments on Homo antecessor.[3] Given the fact that the Inhumans are only twenty five thousand years old, it caused some continuity incomprehension.
  • The Inhumans can be considered a by-product of the Celestials' tampering, by sparking a "recessive genetic potential for greatness in the human DNA code".[9]

Trivia

When asked if there was a way to distinguish Inhumans from mutants, Tom Brevoort (presumably joking) stated that all Inhumans were left-handed.[10]
