Uncanny Inhumans, Vol. 1: Time Crush by Charles Soule
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Thanos arrived on Attilan and threatened the Inhumans, Black Bolt sent everyone away through Eldrac the door. This resulted in many Inhumans scattering throughout the world. Since that day no one knew what happened to Ahura, heir to the throne of Attilan, the son of Black Bolt and Medusa.
It seems one person knew where Ahura was.
Black Bolt sent Ahura into the past with Kang the Conquerer to protect him from Thanos and the incursions.
Black Bolt also brought terrigen mist in order to allow Ahura to undergo his Inhuman transformation.
Since the incursions appear likely to destroy Earth, Black Bolt asks Kang to keep Ahura. Kang agrees, but only under the condition that Ahura will belong to him even if the Earth is saved. That Ahura would belong to Kang forever! Black Bolt agrees. After Secret Wars ends and the world is restored, Black Bolt goes to reclaim Ahura and Kang is not amused.
Time Crush was interesting and intense. I am familiar with Kang the Conqueror, but I didn't fully comprehend how dangerous someone who controls time could truly be. Kang is not an enemy any wise person would choose which really demonstrates how desperate Black Bolt was to save Ahura. This was especially touching because Black Bolt in the past had allowed Ahura to go through a lot of bs because the genetic council feared him and because they didn't provide the OK for Black Bolt to reproduce. I'm glad to see the genetic council and a few other annoying parts of the Inhumans have gone away. Ahura and Black Bolt have a tense relationship to say it nicely. Despite all that Black Bolt has no intention of letting his son down again.
This volume was the first time I ever read a comic book arc as it was released. It was fun to do because I am currently obsessed with the Inhumans. Ever since Marvel announced an Inhumans movie and Black Bolt unleashed the terrigen bomb over New York, I've been paying close attention to the Inhumans. Uncanny Inhumans is the main title of the new Inhumans movement and I've been really pleased with the results thus far. It's fun that they've included the original Inhumans along with the Nuhumans, who are Inhumans who didn't know they were Inhuman until the terrigen cloud transformed them.
Time Crush was a great start to the Uncanny Inhumans and I'm excited to see where the story heads in the future.
