Inhumans L-R:

Gorgon: Hits things really hard.
Karnak: Hits things really precisely.
Black Bolt: If he talks, things explode, so he doesn't talk much.
Medusa: Has lots and lots of prehensile hair.
Crystal: Zaps things.
Maximus: Has telepathic super-powers but his real super-power is being an insane dickhead. Also I just realized that's Ramsay Bolton playing him, which is perfect.

oh yeah, Lockjaw, not pictured, is a bigass dog who can teleport. here is the best ever illustration of Lockjaw:



BTW I don't remember how most of the Runaways work, but the show is presumably going to start from jump street with them, because for reasons that involve spoiling a lot of shit you can't really do anything with them without doing the origin story first.

Runaways, L-R:

Gertrude, has a telepathic connection to a pet velociraptor
Nico, has a staff which gives her magic powers
Alex, is smart
Chase, has high tech gadgets
Karolina, is an alien, has light powers
Molly, is a mutant (presumably not on the show), is super strong

Gorgon.

Cool that both shows have good Harvey/Renee ratios.

Granted, my only exposure to the Inhumans was in the Lee/Kirby run of FF, but he was always cackling like a lunatic and making broad sweeping gestures in that, just in case you ever had any kind of lingering doubt over whether or not he was the bad guy.

In later stories he's good at pretending he's a good little boy before revealing how his cooperation has been part of his evil plan all along.

His full title is Maximus The Mad. That's... that's not the kind of nickname you get without good reason!

I know one of your kings best friends is a fish, and the Queens brother has "Kicks Stuff Good" as his only legitimate claim for his lofty status, but you should be able to figure this kind of thing out!

It's probably the art style, but instead of hooves, I see him squatting on tiptoe on top of a pair of overturned coffee mugs.

It's the kind of name you normally only get after you die. And can potentially have the downfall of an empire blamed on you.

Medusa looks so fucking stupid. I love it.

I read an Inhumans TPB back in the 90s, and the first dozen or so issues of The Runaways. Somewhat interested in the latter on TV. Helps that I'm not aware of any connection to other ongoing Marvel properties. (Cultural osmosis tells me the Inhumans have been floating around Agents of Shield's plot for a while?)

Of Marvel Netflix: I only bothered watching DD S1 and Jessica Jones. I only liked the latter. I don't really want to watch the Defenders without having seen the other stuff, which I've heard ranges from boring to bad. So maybe I won't! That's fine. Everything's fine.

IMO Crystal looks pretty silly, too. Just can't compete with Medusa.

I liked the first, second and fourth quarters of Guardians a lot. The third one went on for too long IMO, and my old eyes get tired of looking at CGI action for extended periods of time. Still, would definitely watch again.

I would give Guardians 2 the worst grade imaginable: A--. It's really good, which makes the few parts that aren't quite as good stand out all the more as not being good.

Guardians 2 was great and pretty dense, but also rather long? Didn't notice until we got out of the theater.

I was especially disappointed by Gamora. In Guardians 2 she is just Girl Character.

All the women get a raw deal in this one come to think of it.

Silliest head-wigs ever aside, am I the only troubled by the fact that the big strong Gorgon is African-american and the intellectual martial artist Karnak is Asian? Am I being too sensitive or is the lack of imagination in casting so obvious that even a foreigner can see it?

Yeah I know Lockjaw because the one place I know Inhumans from (aside from Agents of SHIELD where none of these guys have shown up) is Ms Marvel. Queen Medusa is in that a bit too, though she doesn't do a lot besides offer support, and I don't think I've seen the others.

Speaking of SHIELD I have no idea how they're going to work that continuity issue. Dealing with and/or protecting Inhumans worldwide has been a huge running plot thread in the show for multiple seasons now, so it seems unlikely that there's a whole big family of "Inhumans royalty" out there that the SHIELD team has never even heard so much as a whisper about. Are they just going to show up out of nowhere?

Well, one of their bases is in the Blue Area of the moon (i.e. the part with atmosphere), so there's probably a reason they haven't crossed paths.

On the other hand, how would they react to the news that SHIELD killed their god.

I mean, he was a jerk, but still.

They tend to not have a good relationship with their creators.

Guardians 2 was Groot.

I thought the Gamora/Nebula arc was pretty strong, myself.
