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

Powers and Abilities

Even without using the Terrigen Mist, centuries of selective breeding have given some Inhumans certain advantages.[citation needed] Their average lifespan is 150 years,[8] and inhuman in good physical condition can possess strength, reaction time, speed, or endurance superior to the finest of human athletes.[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 some 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]

Weaknesses

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

Habitat

Habitat: Attilan, same as Earth
