The basis for the new series were American comics, in which the fictional race created by comic book authors Jack Kirby and Stan Lee is acting. For the first time the heroes of this race appeared in the Universe Marvel in December 1965 in the graphic novel “Fantastic Four” Fantastic Four, in the 45th issue. However, several characters appeared earlier, but soon there were also separate series about this race.
Superhumans first appeared in the Fantastic Four Fantastic Four # 45 comic book (December 1965), but their Medusa and Gorgon representatives appeared in previous releases of this series (in No. 36 and No. 44, respectively).
Prehistory of Inhumans
It all began with the enmity of the two cosmic races, the Skrulls and the Kree. In order to gain the advantage of the race Kriya began scientific work on the station they created on the planet of the Solar System of Uranus. As a result of the research, they discovered that the inhabitants of the Earth possess the genetics, which they installed the race of Celestials. Taking advantage of this opportunity, they begin to create mutants from their gene material and genetic material from earthlings to create an army to fight the Skrulls. The experiments were a success, but they stopped them, because according to the predictions this could lead to an anomaly capable of destroying Kriya’s Supreme mind.
But those who have already been created have created their isolated society with very advanced technologies, and built Attilan – the city of the Superhumans.
Society Inhumans has a rigid caste structure. Each member of which, after determining his physical and mental abilities, receives a strictly defined place that he can not change. Interracial marriages are prohibited. However, some of this prohibition is violated.
Attilan is a kingdom. The King of the Superhuman is the Black Thunder, who rules with the Royal Family.
Black Thunder and his wife Medusa have a difficult relationship with the Genetic Council, which believes that Black Thunder should not have children, because its genetic structure is very dangerous. When they still have a son, Black Thunder rushes between love for Medusa and his son and the duty to the Council. But the Genetic Council removes the child, and even tries to use it against Black Thunder, with the aim of overthrowing him from the throne. After this betrayal, the Black Thunder loses its loyalty to the Council, starting an open conflict. He even refuses the crown voluntarily, and with his family leaves Attilan, to lead exclusively private family life with his wife and child. But when Attilan begins to be threatened by real danger, he returns to his royal duties.
For a long time the fact that there was a race of the Superhumans was kept in great secrecy. However, due to the fact that the non-humans begin to interact quite often and actively with a large number of superheroes and mutants of the Earth – with Avengers and X-Men, and especially with the Fantastic Four, helping them to deal with such troubles as Magneto, Galactus, Altron, Apocalypse and Doctor Doom.
