Devil Comics Review | Uncanny Inhumans Vol.1 [2016] Charles Soule

Uncanny Inhumans #0 follows the other Marvel stories including Infinity War and Time Runs Out. Black Blot rescues other Inhumans who are in a transformative state following the events of Infinity War from poaches. Later he storms a castle to find Kang to see his son. Kang reveals there is no future due to the incursions from Time Runs Out running within the Avengers books. Black Blot puts his son in a transformative state and promises him to Kang in exchange for taking him into the time stream to save him from the inevitable destruction of the world. Following the book we get a preview of the Uncanny Inhumans first year. Since Fox has the movie rights to X-Men, the Inhumans are the new mutants of the Marvel cinematic universe which will have their own movie in 2018 due to the slow build in the television series Agents of SHIELD.

Uncanny Inhumans #1 takes place after Secret Wars and Black Blot is searching through time to find his son Ahura. He gave his son to Kang to save him from the upcoming Incursions. After the Terrigen Mists were released, Hank McCoy joined the Inhumans to find a cure before a war erupts between the Inhumans and Mutants. Black Blot comes home to New Attilan to find his former wife Medusa and Johnny Storm together. Uncanny Inhumans #2 Kang teaches Ahura on conquering throughout time where his actions in the past carries forward in the present. Hank McCoy recreates a time bubble to protect the Inhumans. Now New Attilan is lost as the Inhumans travel back through time to confront Kang however they discover Ahura killed his mentor and has become the new Kang.

Uncanny Inhumans #3 The Inhumans battle Ahura until Black Bolt has no choice but to kill his own son. Uncanny Inhumans #4 The Inhumans travel back through time to save Ahura before he becomes the new Kang. They find a young Ahura in the past and show him what Kang has done to him in another timeline. Ahura uses his powers to make Kang repair the Inhumans timeline and kill himself if he ever harms the Inhumans again. The first arc had time travel and its consequences in the present. This is a worthy story following the events of Secret Wars.
