For years, Maximus the Mad has coveted the throne of his brother, Black Bolt, as well as Black Bolt’s wife, Medusa. At times, Maximus has even played a role in his brother’s reign, as they were both instrumental in unleashing the Terrigen cloud that transformed latent Inhumans around the world. However, the Terrigen has proven to be fatal to mutants, which led to a war with the X-Men. Now, as that conflict draws to a close, Maximus has gathered like-minded allies to seize control of the Inhumans’ future for himself.
In CraveOnline’s exclusive preview for Uncanny Inhumans # 20, Maximus nears his goal of creating a new type of Terrigen; which may finally allow him to achieve his ultimate goals. But the consequences of that success could be immense…for anyone who isn’t Maximus!
This issue was written by Charles Soule, and it marks the end of his three year run with the Inhumans. Ario Anindito was the artist for this issue, with colors by Java Tartaglia.
INHUMANS VS. X-MEN TIE-IN! Maximus the Mad has recreated the recipe for Terrigen Crystals, and can end the mutant-Inhuman war with a single stroke. He can finally be a hero! Or maybe he won’t do anything like that at all. Everything changes for the Inhumans as Charles Soule brings his landmark three-year run on Inhumans titles to an end with this extra-sized story.
Uncanny Inhumans # 20 will be released on Wednesday, March 22 in comic book stores everywhere.
