The Genetic Council was legislative, judicial and executive body and consisted of the twelve members, each of whom belong to a different family or House. The Council elects one of its members as both '''head of the Council and ruler (or "king") of the Inhumans'''. This ruler reigns from election to his or her death. Kingship then doesn't follow a strict patriarchal or matriarchal progression, although popular rulers are often succeeded by their children. '''The designation "Royal Family" is a ceremonial one that passed on from House to House with successive kings (or queens).'''{{r|Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Vol 2 6}}

Inhuman Culture

Inhuman Biology


The Terrigenesis is the source of most of the Inhumans' powers. Subjection of any individual Inhuman to the Terrigenesis conventionally requires the approval of a majority vote of the Genetics Council.[7] Please consult the page for more information.


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.[8]

Alternate Universe Inhumans

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

Powers and Abilities


Varies, if any. Even without using the Terrigen Mist, the Kree modifications, combined with centuries of selective breeding have given all Inhumans certain advantages.[citation needed] Their average lifespan is 150 years,[7] and an inhuman in good physical condition possesses strength, reaction time, speed, and endurance that are all superior to the finest of human athletes.[citation needed]

  • Enhanced Strength An average (unmodified by Terrigen) Inhuman in good physical condition can lift one ton.[citation needed]
  • 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.[citation needed]
  • 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.[citation needed]
  • 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.[citation needed]

The Inhumans were meant by the Kree scientist who created them to be a "deadly weapon of cosmic scale", "Galactus-level weapons".[9]

Average Strength level

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


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


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.


Type of Government: Monarchy. Inhuman society is formatted in the style of a genocracy; ruled by the genetically fittest. As such, the elected Genetics Council is the major ruling body of the Inhumans besides the Royal Family.[7]
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).[10]
Cultural Traits: Miscegenation Prohibition, Rigid Caste System based on abilities, Conformists. Marriages have long been arranged by the government to eugenically further the race with couples only allowed to have a maximum of two offspring.[7] Those born with powers not useful enough to Inhuman society are cast off to live in the Darkward End of Attilan as rejected outcasts and unmentionables to be detached from their former associates and family members.[11]
Representatives: * Black Bolt



When asked if there was a way to distinguish Inhumans from mutants, Tom Brevoort (presumably joking) stated that all Inhumans were left-handed.[16]
