An ancient Inhuman who belonged to a group known as The Mayapan. This was a fellowship of Inhumans who posed as Mayan deities some 1000 years ago. These individuals began as citizens of the ancient Mayan Empire who had wondered off to a secluded section of the countryside. They came across a spring that was connected to a subterranean cache of Terrigen Crystals. They drank from the spring, exposing themselves to the Terrigen. The Terrigen-infused waters proved fatally poisonous for most of these individuals, but for a small handful of them it triggered Terrigenesis.
One of these Inhumans was transformed into a large being composed of a lava-like fiery substance. He renamed himself ‘Jacawitz’ after Q’aq’awits (the mountain god of the Postclassic K’iche’ Maya of highland Guatemala).
Jacawitz and his fellow Mayapan ultimately returned home and used their newfound powers to take over the Mayan Empire, demanding that they be worshiped as gods and that a series of pyramids be constructed for them. The Mayan people eventually rebelled against these Inhuman overlords and somehow managed to defeat and destroy the Mayapan.
Ixchel, the last surviving member of these Inhumans, fled into an astral realm along with the disembodied life essences of her fellow Mayapan. She remained there in stasis for over a thousand years until she was awoken by a fissure cracked into the astral realm, accidentally created by the super-beings, She-Hulk and A-Bomb.
Released, Ixchel manifested a giant ziggurat in the middle of the Canadian Rockies. She drained the life-force from She-Hulk, Lyra, and A-Bomb, using the energies to reincarnate Jacawitz and the rest of their fellow Mayapan.
The Red Hulk and Alpha Flight investigated the creation of this Mayan Pyramid and engaged the Mayapan in a tremendous battle. The Red Hulk was ultimately victorious and was able to restore She-Hulk and the others, forcing the Mayapan to again flee to the astral realm. This was the last that the Mayapan have been seen from and it is presumed that they continue to be imprisoned on an astral plane.
A latent Inhuman whose powers were manifested following exposure to the Terrigen Cloud. Jack gained the ability to channel fire-based energies through a series of long chains that he kept on his person. Jack can use these chains as a weapon, swinging them about like a whip, or as a means of keeping prisoners securely bound.
Jack was recruited by Lash shortly after his transformation and he accompanied the Inhuman despot to the hidden sanctuary of Orollan. Later, Jack joined up with an ambitious fellow recruit named Hollow, who sought out to abduct new Inhumans as a means of appeasing their master, Lash. Although Lash ultimately killed Hollow for this trespass, Jack Chain and the rest of the Hollow’s followers were allowed to return home to Ortolan. Presumedly, Jack continues to reside on ortolan with the rest of Lash’s tribe.
This young Inhuman had been an embittered and spiteful young man living in the suburbs of Sydney Australia. He ultimately fell in with a gang of Anti-Mutant activists who sought to ‘purify’ their home nation of those individuals they deemed as abominations. The fervor of this reprehensible gang was further invigorated when the Terrigen Cloud passed over Australia, transforming various individuals into new Inhumans. This gang hated the Inhumans with the dame spitefulness as they had hated the Mutants. They deemed the Inhumans as impure, an effrontery, and threat toward ‘true’ humans.
Unbeknownst to his fellow gang members, the young man had himself carried the Inhuman gene. He had been transformed by the Terrigen Cloud and changed into a large being with purple skin, enhanced strength and an unspecified degree of invulnerability. He was utterly dismayed by his transformation. He hated what he had become and he attempted to kill himself. His in invulnerability prevented his attempt at suicide, leaving him even more despondent and enraged than before. He chose to hide his transformation and continue on as a member of the hate group.
As part of a ghastly demonstration, the group’s leader abducted the new Inhuman, Ash Minnick, caging her and planning to execute her as part of a public demonstration. Crystal of the All New Inhumans interceded , using her elemental powers to make short work of the racist demonstrators. Jack attacked Crystal and, with his powers he at first caught Crystal off guard, but she was able to fight back. In the fracas, his mask was shredded, revealing himself to be an Inhuman. His fellow gang members were shocked, frightened and enraged that one of their own was actually an Inhuman.
Furious over how his life had fully fallen apart, Jack attacked Crystal once more. This time Crystal was ready. She used her abilities to manipulate air currents to evacuate the oxygen from his lungs, causing the young man to pass out. Naja had meanwhile saved Ash Minnick and the Inhumans took their leave. Crystal knew that the unconscious Inhuman would surely be killed by his former colleagues, so she chose to take him along and it is presumed that he was placed in a holding cell aboard the RIV.
More recently, Jack managed to escape the RIV. During a training session, he kept through a teleportation orb meant only to transport non-living matter. His enhanced durability enabled him to survive the teleportation and he was transported to an Inhuman arsenal located on the Moon.
Gorgon, Panacea, and Naja followed after him, transported by Lockjaw. Prior to their arrival, Jack found a communications device and used it to contact an unknown party. Gorgon and the others finally found him and had him cornered. Rather than surrendering, Jack blasted a window and leapt out, exposing himself to the vacuum of space. Again, his durability allowed him to survive. A space shift arrived and used a mechanical arm to collect him. It remains unknown who or what was piloting this craft that rescued Jack (presumedly it was the same person or person whom he had contacted with the combination device).
This was the last that Jack has been seen from, but it is likely that his return and the mystery of his escape will be revealed in an upcoming storyline of All New Inhumans.
A latent Inhuman who transformation was caused via exposure to the Terrigen Cloud. Unaltered in a physical sense, Jardessh was endowed with the power to remain undetected by anyone with precognitive powers.
Jardesesh was a former minion of the criminal over-boss known as The Kingpin prior to relocating to San Francisco (where he temporarily worked as a hired goon for The Black Cat).
The Kingpin later regained Jardeesh’s services when it was discovered that his Inhuman gifts caused his actions to be undetected by the precognition visions of Ulysses.
A SHIELD scientist and associate of Bruce Banner who was transformed into an Inhuman via exposure to the Terrigen Cloud. The transformation caused Jessup to take on the form of a giant, insect-like creature whose sheer power rivaled that of The Hulk. This transformation was transitory and Jessup only maintains in this behemoth form for up to ten minutes at a time. While transformed, the monster appears to feed on energy.
Following Jessup’s initial transformation, The Hulk, Banner was eventually able to subdue the creature until he transformed back into his human form. Jessup was later abducted by members of the renegade scientist group known as The Enclave. The Hulk eventually tracked Jessup down and together The Hulk and Jessup destroyed the Enclave’s base of operations.
Since then, Bruce Banner has been working on some sort of means of preventing Jessup from again transforming into his monstrous form. It remains unrevealed whether or not Banner succeeded in this and Jessup’s current status and whereabout are unknown.
An Inhuman from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Jiaying is an Inhuman with extreme healing abilities that sustains her youth. In order to maintain her youth and vitality, Jailing must periodically ‘feed’ on others, stealing the life energies of another not altogether unlike a vampire. It has remained unclear exactly how old Jiaying is, but it is implied that she has been maintaining her longevity for a long while. Many Inhumans sacrificed themselves to her so that Jangling may continue on as a living embodiment of Inhuman history as well as a guide for new Inhumans, helping them through the often arduous process of Terrigenesis.
The American scientist, Calvin Zabo, met Jiaying in China and the two fell in love and had a daughter together whom they named Daisy. Jiaying was later abducted and apparently killed by the nazi war criminal and Hydra lieutenant, Wener Reinhardt. Reinhardt dissected Jiaying in order to create a serum that offered him prolonged youth. Reinhardt was later killed and it turned out that Jiaying had survived this ordeal after Zabo stitched her corpse back together and had her use her powers to ‘feed’ off the residents of a small village.
Jiaying was the leader of a sect of Inhumans who resided in the sanctuary known as Afterlife. After this enclave was discovered by SHIELD, Director Gonzales was sent to Afterlife to broker a peace between The Inhumans and SHIELD. Gonzales proposed ‘indexing’ the Inhumans, adding them to a database of known super-powered beings. Having survived the brutality subjected to her by Reinhardt, Jiaying was highly reluctant to allow her people to be catalogued and potentially slaughtered. She engineered a plot, killing Gonzales and making it appear as though SHIELD was attacking Afterlife.
Jiaying then led a group of her Inhuman on a strike against the SHIELD base aboard an aircraft carrier, seeking to expose all aboard to the Terrigen Mists. Those whop were Inhumans would transform and join her ranks; while those who were not would be killed by the mists.
Jiaying’s daughter and the other agents of SHIELD put a stop to this plan. Wounded, Jiaying attempted to siphon the life energy from her daughter. She was stopped by Zabo who used his augmented strength to apparently crush the life out of her.
Although she seems to have perished, Jiaying has survived worse and it is possible that we have not seen the last of her…
An Inhuman from the Marvel Cinematic Universe who appeared briefly int he television show, Marvels’ Agents of SHIELD. Ethan was a young Inhuman who had not yet been exposed to the Terrigen Mists. He had been living in the safe confines of the Inhuman enclave, Afterlife, but chose to take a vacation hiking.
The evil Dr, List and the agents of Hydra were able to track Ethan down after he left Afterlife. Hoping to glean more information about the Inhumans, Ethan was killed and dissected by List and his sadistic Hydra brethren.
A member of the younger generation of Inhumans, Terrigenesis altered Jolen’s appearance, leaving him with brown skin with a pattern of thorn-like protrusions on his face and over his brow, with brown, vine-like hair. Jolen was endowed with the ability to manipulate vegetation and other forms of natural flora. He can additionally transform his body into a plant-like form, a skill he can use to recover from otherwise fatal injuries. He has also can use this ability to transport his consciousness from one place to another; communicate with others over vast distances by taking over a tree, houseplant, or shrubbery and reshaping it so to bear his visage.
Jolen was part of a delegation sent to earth as a type of ‘student exchange program’ meant to enhance relations between Attilan and the United States. Jolen was selected for the program by the then Chancellor of the Genetic Council, Carthus. Carthus wanted Jolen involved in that he and Jolen shared a mutual contempt toward the humans. Carthus intimated to Jolen that this whole emissary program was secretly a first step in a long-term strategy to conquer and subjugate the Earth.
Jolen was romantically involved with his fellow emissary, Narhees. She broke off her their affair shortly after arriving on Earth and the heartbreak only acted to intensify Jolen’s bitterness and hatred toward the humans. On two occasions, Jolen murdered a number of human college students, using his powers to dispose of the bodies. This was never discovered and, as of this writing, Jolen has yet to be held accountable for his crimes.
The emissary program was eventually cancelled and Jolen and his colleagues all returned to Attilan. Jolen took to working in the royal gardens, using his powers to greatly augment the beauty and lushness of the grounds. It was at this time that he began to romantically pursue the queen’s sister, Crystal. Crystal was separated from her then-husband, Quicksilver, and was actually a good deal receptive towards Jolen’s advances. When Quicksilver was able to reattain his speed abilities via exposure to the Terrigen Crystals, he took revenge on Jolen, beating him to within an inch of his life.
Thereafter, Jolen resigned his post as gardener and enlisted in the Royal Guard. He accompanied Gorgon on a mission to New York that was meant to intimidate the American government into returning the Terrigen Crystals that Quicksilver had stolen (an act that began the Silent War event). Gorgon’s team took a group of wealthy Americans hostage and Jolen ensnarled them with his control over a series of roots and vines. He misinterpreted Gorgon’s order to silence a few of the more vocal prisoners and Jolen killed them, causing the vines to constrict to such a degree that the prisoners were crushed.
It had not been Gorgon’s intention to take any of these humans’ lives and he and his team attempted to flee when they were encountered by The Fantastic Four. After a brief battle, Gorgon, Jolen and the others were defeated by The Fantastic Four and were ultimately imprisoned by the Office of National Emergency. They eventually escaped with he aide of Dewoz who used his teleportation abilities to free them from their incarceration. They were also able to re-obtain the stolen crystals before teleporting back to Attilan.
Jolen escaped with the others through the Door of Eldrac during the Infinity Event. His current whereabouts remain unknown.
A young Inhuman who resided in the secret community of Orolann. Jourr. injured himself playing and was attended to by the village’s healer, Thane. Thane fixed Jourr up with a splint and sent him off to continue playing.
Later, when the Terrigen Bomb caused a cloud of Terrigen Mists to cover the Earth, Jourr and the other inhabitants of Orrolan were transformed. Unfortunately, the sheer power bestowed onto Thane led to a massive explosion that killed everyone in the vicinity except for Thane himself. Young Jourr was among the casualties.
Gavrel Achtor. A NuHuman who was transformed by the Terrigenesis Cloud. Achtor’s transformation enabled him to telepathically lift garbage and throw it a great velocity. He went on a destructive rampage after his apartment complex was accidentally destroyed. Junkman was shot and killed by S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Nick Fury Jr.
