Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’, based on the Marvel Race of the same name, revolves around the Inhuman Royal Family, who reside in the kingdom of Attilan. Due to a genetic glitch, they are an enduring clan, blessed with superpowers. They live in their secret island kingdom, secluded from outsiders. The members absorb these mutations by subjecting themselves to a strange ritual which involves exposing their bodies to the Terrigen Mists. This powerful substance fills them with unearthly and extraordinary superpowers. However, when the royal family is attacked by a military coup, they barely escape and seek refuge in the Hawaii islands. Here, they have to seek out means to save themselves and humanity from the threats of sinister forces and also from the evil approaches of patriarch Black Bolt’s insane brother, Maximus the Mad.
