Medusa’s maternal grandmother. La married Kobar and together they had two daughters, Ambur and Azur. Amber went on to marry Quelin and their children were Medusa and Crystal. Azur, meanwhile, married Mander and their children were Triton and Karnak.
An Inhuman from the Tribe of Lor who generations ago left Attilan to forge their own society elsewhere. The reasons for this faction’s decision to leave Attilan were based on philosophical differences over the practice of Terrigenesis. Whereas every citizen of Attilan was afforded the opportunity of Terrigenesis, those who formed The Tribe of Lor believed that this was a misuse of the scared mists and that only the strong, powerful, and worthy should be awarded the gift of Terrigenesis.sanctuary that they called ‘Orollan.’ Lash was born in Orollan some unspecified time ago and was identified by the ruling monks as being among the stronger and more ‘worthy’ members of their society. Consequentially, Lash was chosen to go through the ritual of Terrigenesis. Exposure to the mists empowered Lash with an enlarged form with red eyes, tendril-like hair, and significantly enhanced strength, speed, and durability. Lash was additionally endowed with the ability to absorb and redirect any form of energy. He was able to absorb any type of energy, from the concussive force of being hit, to electricity, to plasma-based bolts, and then regenerated this energy into force shields as well as devastating force blasts. With these powers, Lash served as a guardian of Orollan, protecting its boarders and enforcing the cultural order that stated only the strong and worthy should be afforded Terrigenesis.
The tribe ultimately settled in a remote region of Greenland and built their own society.
The explosion of The Terrigen Bomb during the Infinity Event caused the Terrigen Cloud to trigger transformation of all latent Inhumans who came into contact with it. This included Lash’s fellow citizen of Orollan, The Inhuman named Thane. Thane was secretly the son of Thanos as well as an Inhuman. Thane ended up possessing such incredible powers that the process of his Terrigensis resulted in a massive explosion that killed nearly the entirety of the population of Orollan.
Lash survived the destruction of Orollan and was devastated by the loss of his people and home. Lash’s pain and mourning quickly gave way to anger, a need for retribution, and a newfound dedication to what he saw as a righteous cause. For Lash, the huge influx on new Inhuman created by the Terrigen Cloud was an abomination. All these new Inhumans were being created, yet for Lash very few were actually worthy of the transformation.
Lash set off on a crusade to accrue a new tribe and cull any new Inhuman that he deemed as unworthy. It remains unknown just how many new Inhumans Lash murdered in the name of this cause, but it is likely that it has been quite a few. He also amassed a large following of new Inhumans that he did find to be worthy. These followers became the new Tribe of Orollan and they rebuilt some of the city on the grounds where the original Orollan had stood.
By way of his deadly crusade, Lash came into conflict with Queen Medusa and the Inhumans of New Attilan. Lash had come to test the new Inhuman, Inferno (Dante Pertuz), and found him lacking. Lash attempted to kill Inferno, but Medusa arrived to rescue him just in the nick of time. Medusa and her forces tracked Lash back to Orollan where a large-scale battle ensued. In the end, Lash relented to a tentative truce with Medusa, agreeing to no longer kill those new Inhuman he deemed unworthy. It was a pact Lash clearly had no intention of fulfilling.
Lash continued to amass followers for his new tribe of Orollan. His endeavors has put him into conflict with a number of heroes across the Marvel Universe, including The New Warriors, The Invaders, and Spider-Man 2099.
Breaking his treaty with New Attilan, Lash conspired with the duplicitous new Inhuman, Lineage, to ambush Medusa. Medusa and her allies were led to believe they were investigating a Kree artifact, but were instead coaxed into a trap where Lash and his forces attacked from high ground. Medusa was ultimately able to escape but it came at the cost of her adviser, Elejea, who perished while protecting her queen.
More recently, Lash and his tribe were recruited by Maximus as part of a scheme to engender a way between The inhumans and the humans. Medusa and The inhumans of New Attilan interceded and ultimately defeated Lash. Last seen, Lash and his minions were in the custody of Captain Marvel’s Ultimates.
A powerful Inhuman with lion-like physical attributes, enhanced strength, agility, and durability. Leans also possesses razor sharp claws although he sometimes employs gauntlets with elongated claw-like blades.
Leon’s had been a captain in the Royal Guard until he became an ally of Maximus and participated in one of the mad prince’s many efforts to wrestle the crown from his brother, Black Bolt. It remained unclear if Leonus was actually under Maximus’ mental manipulation or if he sided with the Prince of his own volition. Following Maximus’ inevitable defeat, Leonus and the rest of the conspirators were banished from Attilan and found refuge in an unspecified coastal nation in South America. From there, Leonus took part in a scheme hatched by Maximus to use the gullible Incredible Hulk to wage an invasion of Attilan. The Hulk ultimately wised up to Maximus’ coercion and the scheme was foiled.
Some time later, Leonus and a number of his colleges were pardoned by King Black Bolt and allowed to return to Attilan. Thereafter he took part in the battle to fend off the power mad Inhuman, Thraxton and the Sphinx who had imbued Thraxton with newfound power.
During the Atlantis Rising event, when the Genetic Council had abandoned Attilan and the Royal Family had been temporarily banished from the realm, Leonus reluctantly freed Maximus, hoping that the prince’s twisted genius might devise a means of saving the city. This ultimately put Leonus and his comrades into conflict with The Fantastic Four. In the end, The Fantastic Four succeeded in defeating Maximus and his allies and Attilan was ultimately saved. Considering Leonus’ susceptibility to being mentally influenced by Maximus, he was not charged with further acts of treason and he remained a citizen of Attilan in good standing.
Not much has been seen from Leonus since that and his current whereabouts remain unknown.
A young woman who was living in New York City when The Terrigen Cloud floated back over the Eastern Seaborne. Lilly is a latent Inhuman and exposure to the the cloud caused her to go through Terrigensis and her body was encased in a Terrigen Cocoon. This was the last we’ve seen from Lily and it remains unknown how Terrigenesis may have altered her.
An Inhuman from the Marvel Cinematic Universe who appears on the television show, Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Lincoln had worked through medical school and suffered great difficulties with alcoholism. He was identified as an Inhuman and recruited to the Inhuman sanctuary known as Afterlife. There he was chosen as worthy of being exposed to Terrigenesis. This endowed Lincoln with the ability to control ambient electrical fields.
He had a hard time controlling this power at first and he accidentally caused a large electrical fire. As he further honed his skills, however, Lincoln learned to use his powers in a more subtle, less destructive fashion, such as levitating objects or rendering a foe temporarily unconscious.
Lincoln was assigned to act as a chaperone to the Shield agent, Skye (Daisy Johnson), after she was brought to Afterlife following her own process of Terrigenesis. Lincoln and Skye cultivated a close friendship that ultimately grew into a romance.
Later, after relations between The Inhuman enclave and Shield deteriorated into full blown war, Lincoln was tasked with joining the force that invaded the Shield aircraft carrier. Thanks to Skye’s coaxing, Lincoln ultimately decided to turn against his fellow Inhumans and prevent a large-scale loss of life.
In the aftermath of the this conflict, Lincoln attempted to start a new peaceful life, but was forced to go into hiding when he was pursued by a murderous Inhuman named Lash and the ATCU. He eventually joined Shield in its efforts to defeat the despotic Inhuman known as Hive. So to save Daisy’s life and put an end to Hive’s threat, Lincoln sacrificed his life by piloting a Quintet carrying him and Hive into the upper orbit where it exploded.
Lincoln was portrayed by actor, Luke Mitchell.
Gordon “Gordo” Nobili. A latent Inhuman whose transformation was caused by the Terrigin Cloud. Prior to Terrigenesis, Nobil had been the patriarch of a struggling branch of the Maggia crime family. Exposure to the mists caused him to transform into a purple-skinned humanoid with large spikes atop his head and increased strength and durability. He was additionally imbued with the ability to communicate with the residual sentiences of his deceased ancestors. This included more recent ancestors as well as blood relatives who had died more than several centuries ago. It remains unclear whether these consciousnesses are constantly bombarding Lineage with thoughts and information, or if he can control them, bring forth those who have valuable information to share while repressing the others. When they communicate with Lineage, the faces of these ancestors rise up on his chest and abdomen, as though they were trapped underneath his skin.
The Nobili Crime family had been down on its luck and Gordon and his two sons were struggling to maintain their racketeering territory in the face of a bloody and longstanding feud with the rival Paguros Family. In a desperate gambit, Gordon contacted the vigilante known as the Punisher and told him the whereabouts of the Paguros Family’s top brass.
All this occurred around the time of the Infinity Event and Black Bolt’s detonation of the Terrigen Bomb. Gordon and his two sons, Carman and Joey, all possessed the Inhuman gene and each were transformed by exposure to the Terrigen Cloud.
With their newfound Inhuman powers, The Nobilis decided to take down the Paguros themselves. A massive firefight ensued when the Punisher and his then-colleagues among the Thunderbolts arrived. Gordon’s two sons were both killed in the crossfire. Gordon managed to escape and vowed vengeance on The Punisher for the death of his sons.
Some time later, Gordon (now calling himself ‘Lineage’) came to New Attilan and presented himself to Queen Medusa, suggesting that he had important information for her. He told Medusa the location of Lash’s base of operations at Orollan enabling Medusa to mount an invasion party in the hopes of ultimately brokering a peace between Orollan and New Attilan (as well as to stop Lash from killing those new Inhumans he did not deal worthy of Terrigenesis). Lineage’s assistance in this manner garnered him the Queen’s trust and allowed him to work toward a larger, more complicated scheme.
Some time herein, Lineage became keenly interested in the young Inhuman, Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel). Lineage came to believe that there was something special about Kamala and her ancestral bloodline; he was intent on recruiting her as an ally to his cause. To this end, Lineage enlisted the help of the new Inhumans, Kamran and Kaboom. Kamran had been childhood friends with Kamala and proved the perfect tool to lure her into a trap. Fortunately, Kamala was able to escape from this trap and she rejected Lineage’s offer to join his side.
Later, following an attack on New Attilan by agents of The Ennilux Group, Lineage sought out the wreckage of the downed war zeppelin that had been transporting Ennilux’s leader, the mysterious Inhuman known simply as ‘The Capo.’ Lineage found The Cappo’s body and saved its decapitated head inside a jar filled with strange liquids. Lineage subsequently consumed this severed head and somehow it enabled him to absorb the Capo’s consciousness in the same fashion that he had access to the consciousnesses of his passed descendants.
Winning the trust of the ancient Inhuman, Eldrac, Lineage was able to coerce Eldrac to teleport Medusa and her guards into a trap. Once they were out of the way, Lineage stole the Inhuman Codex and, using information gleaned from The Cappo, he utilized the Codex to transform the human populace of Jersey City into a devolved, violent mob. He did this as a gesture to show Inhuman superiority and the act was preceded by a projected message all over the world announcing himself and proclaiming The Inhumans as the new rightful masters of the world.
Meanwhile, it turned out that Karnak is actually a distant relative of Lineage. Karnak had died by his own hand some several months back and his consciousness had found itself trapped within Lineage. Karnak used his unique abilities to find the flaw in this prison and he broke free. This somehow caused a fully reincarnated Karnak to burst out of Lineage’s midsection, felling the surprised villain. The young Inhuman, Iso, then used the codex to undo Lineage’s spell and restore the populace of Jersey City.
Following the Secret Wars event, it was revealed that Lineage somehow survived having Karnak burst through his chest and is currently incarcerated in one of the cells in the bowls of New Attilan. More recently, Lineage was freed by Maximus the Mad.
An Inhuman whose past origins have not been revealed. Terrigenesis transformed Lock’s physical form, leaving him with a very lithe frame, greenish skin, and gaunt features with large yellow eyes. It also bestowed Lock the ability to create seemingly unbreakable barriers. There is a hole in one of Lock’s hands; when he threads the fingers of his other hand through this hole and then grasps the process causes any door or window he is concentrating on to become impossible to open and will remain that way until he lets go of his hold. Lock employed this strange power so to keep secure Karnak’s new Tower of Wisdom.
Lockjaw has appeared in about as many tales as any other Inhuman (if not more), but has yet to have his origins fully explored. Assumedly, Lockjaw is a regular earthly dog who was exposed to the Terrigen Mists and thus imbued with his fantastic powers. Terrigen doesn’t normally effect animals or non-Inhumans, so it is possible that some scientist tinkered with the pup’s DNA so to infuse some degree of Inhuman DNA. Perhaps one day, this mystery will be explianed. At one point it was suggested that Lockjaw had actually been a regular citizen of Attilan transformed into dog via Terrigenesis, but this was ultimately revealed as a joke meant to tease a gullible Ben Grimm.
Resembling a gigantic bulldog/boxer mix, Lockjaw possesses super strength, powerful crushing jaws, an elongated lifespan, and the ability to instantly teleport himself and others around him over great distances. He additionally appears to possess a type of extrasensory awareness, an ability to detect danger or threats even when they are occurring far off. The metallic glyph or ‘tuning fork’ on Lockjaw’s brow seems to be a device that helps him focus his powers. It glows with crackling energies when he is about to teleport.
Lockjaw is the pet and official escort of the Royal Family. Although it has been stated that he is Black Bolt’s dog, Lockjaw has always been rather fickle about whom he chooses to spend time with. He has seemed to be especially fond of the Queen’s younger sister, Crystal, as well as her daughter, Luna, and (more recently) the new Inhuman, Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel).
Lockjaw teleported Black Bolt and the others to New York in their search for the missing Medusa. After a brief battle with The Fantastic Four, Lockjaw transported both the Royal Family as well as the Fantastic Four back to Attilan where together they thwarted Maximus’ latest attempt to gain his brother’s throne. In an act of spite over being defeated, Maximus activated an impenetrable negative energy force field that separated Attilan from the outside world. Lockjaw was trapped outside of this barrier and was unable to teleport through the force field to be reunited with his family.
Lost and alone, Lockjaw wandered the countryside unintentionally terrorizing the local townsfolk who mistook him for some sort of monster. Ultimately, Lockjaw came across Johnny Storm (The Human Torch) and his friend, Wyatt Wingfoot. The three had a number of adventures together. Johnny was hopeful that Lockjaw could be able to reunite him with Crystal, but it proved to be a feat beyond Lockjaw’s powers.
The negative zone force field was eventually deactivated, allowing Lockjaw to return home. Lockjaw then transported Crystal to New York so she could be with her beloved Johnny. Crystal became a member of The Fantastic Four and Lockjaw accompanied her for many of her adventures with the FF.
Later, Lockjaw and Crystal were ensnarled in a complicated spell cast by the villainous alchemist, Diablo. The two were ultimately rescued by Medusa and the Fantastic Four. Some time thereafter, Lockjaw teleported Crystal to the aid of an injured Quicksilver, a fateful encounter that would eventually lead to Crystal and Quicksilver’s marriage and the birth of their daughter, Luna.
Lockjaw helped Medusa escape to Earth when the Genetic Council decreed that she terminate her pregnancy. He also helped in summoning The Avengers to assist The Inhumans in repelling the threat of Thane Ector and The Brethren.
Lockjaw has shown great fondness for Ben Grimm, The Thing of The Fantastic Four. The two have had man adventures together and he even traveled with him to France when Grimm chose to be a conscientious objector during the first ‘Superhero Civil War’ event. Later, Lockjaw teamed up with a number of other super powered animals to form ‘The Pet Avengers.’ After Black Bolt was abducted by The Skrulls, The Inhumans joined forces with the Kree Imperial Army. Kree scientists used a method to augment Lockjaw’s power of teleportation, enhancing his range and allowing him to teleport himself and others across vast distances of interstellar space. With Lockjaw’s assistance, Medusa and the others were successful in rescuing Black Bolt.
Later, Lockjaw proved an invaluable asset to Black Bolt and Maximus’ efforts to protect The Inhumans from Thanos. He also helped rescue numerous Inhumans during the fall of Attilan amidst The Infinity Event.
More recently, Medusa has sent Lockjaw to look after the new Inhuman, Kamala Khan (Ms. Marvel). Medusa saw great potential in Kamala, as well as a great potential for getting into trouble and she assigned Lockjaw to look after her (although more often then not it has been Kamala who has saved Lockjaw from danger).
More recently, Lockjaw was utilized in a series of non-lethal attacks to extract revenge on Tony Stark for his crimes against New Attilan. Lockjaw teleported into Stark’s personal garage of expensive sports cars and private jets, released a series of grenades and that teleporting away, leaving the bombs to blow up Stark’s garage.
An Inhuman who has thus far only appeared in the Ultimate Marvel Universe. Locust has callus-like skin and wears a cloak that hides much of his appearance. He has the ability to manifest swarms of insect-like flying creatures from his hands. Locust is one of Maximus’ flunkies who chases Crystal in her efforts to escape Attilan to the human world.
A young latent Inhuman who was transformed following exposure to the Terrigen Cloud. Terrigenesis did not alter Lucas’ physical form, although it did cause his blood to change into chemical compound that, when rendered into a gaseous form, causes sterility in humans.
Lucas was abducted by Hydra agents while still inside his terigenetic cocoon. Hydra’s scientists examined Lucas when he emerged from his cocoon and discovered the sterilizing effects of his blood. The Hydra cell devised a cure for the blood and then began the process of farming Lucas’ blood from his body in order to create a bomb meant to be detonated int he earth’s atmosphere. The plan was that Hydra would then be able to control the population because they would be the only one’s who had the cure.
Captain America and Nomad mounted a rescue, yet were betrayed when it turned out that Lucas was in league with Hydra (perhaps due to some form of Stockholm Syndrome or maybe Lucas was always a rotten kid). In any case, Captain America ultimately prevailed and the Hydra plot was foiled. Lucas was apprehended and presumedly incarcerated. Hopefully we will never hear from him again.
An Inhuman from the Marvel Cinematic Universe who has this far only appeared in the television show, Marvel’s Agents of Shield. Lucio had been a member of the national police force of Columbia when exposure to Terrigen activated his latent Inhuman powers. He gained the ability to temporarily freeze others into statue-like paralysis by gazing at them with his eyes.
Initially, Lucio utilized this newfound power to assist in the corrupt business dealings of certain factions of the Columbian federali. Later, Lucio was abducted by Agents of Hydra whereby the Inhuman Hive used his parasitic mind control powers to make Lucio his pawn and foot soldier.
Lucio was later killed in an altercation with the agents of Shield. Performing and autopsy , the Shield scientists, Fitz and Simmons were able to ascertain the true nature of Hive’s powerful mind-control powers.
Lucio was portrayed by actor, Gabriel Salvador.
Luna Maximoff is the daughter of Crystal of The Inhuman Royal Family and the Mutant speedster known as Quicksilver. Luna was the first child born on Attilan following the city’s relocation to the Blue Area of the Moon and was named after Attilan’s new home. She is additionally the first recorded offspring of an Inhuman/Mutant pairing.Despite her parents’ lineage, Luna was born a normal human infant with no mutant powers nor pre-established Inhuman abilities. Luna’s mother, Crystal, was not concerned with her daughter being born a human. Her father, however, was incensed.
Quicksilver saw himself as the son and heir to Magneto, the long-heralded figurehead of Mutant supremacy. Quicksilver looked down on regular ‘flatscan’ humans as inferior to Mutants and he was outraged and embarrassed that his own daughter, the granddaughter of Magneto, should be born a human. So intense was Quicksilver’s consternation over this matter that he attempted to take his infant daughter to the chamber of Terrigen Mists so to have her mutated by way of Terrigenesis. He was stopped by Lockjaw along with The Thing of The Fantastic Four. The Thing dissuaded Quicksilver from exposing his daughter to the mists. The Thing had spent much of his life alienated from society due to his monstrous appearance. Terrigensis could render young Luna into a similar form and The Thing convinced Quicksilver not to take this risk and threaten his daughter’s chances of a normal, happy childhood.
Her humanity notwithstanding, Quicksilver soon came to love his daughter as much as her mother did. Unfortunately, being the human granddaughter of Magneto put her at considerable risk. Exodus, the powerful Mutant leader of the Acolytes (a Mutant supremacy sect), set out to abduct Luna as a means of consolidating power. After realizing that Luna was human, Exodus declared her an abomination and attempted to kill her. Exodus was defeated and Luna was saved by her parents along with the assistance of The Avengers and The X-Men.
Luna’s parents eventually separated and they worked out a joint custody arrangement whereby Luna would spend half her time with her mother on Attilan, and the other half with her father, residing on Mount Wundagore (home of the High Evolutionary). It was a happy childhood and Luna made many friends, both among the Inhumans of Attilan as well as the evolved animal beings of Wundagore.
Luna had two nannies while living on Attilan. First there was Maya whose powers enabled her to project pockets of swirling air. Black Bolt had chosen Maya to look after Luna because her powers allowed her to protect Luna from the polluted air of earth. Maya was later replaced by Marilla, who had been the nanny to Luna’s mother and aunt. Tragically, Marilla was killed by Iron Man whilst under the mental control of Kang the Conquerer.
Some time later, Luna’s father lost his mutant powers in the wake of M-Day (where roughly 90% of the Earth’s Mutant population were mystically de-powered). Desperate to regain these powers, Quicksilver snuck into Attilan and exposed himself to the Terrigen Mists. Terrigenesis imbued Quicksilver with the ability to travel short distances through time. He then stole a large cache of the crystals and coerced his daughter to return with him to New York.
Hidden away in an apartment in Manhattan, Quicksilver outfitted a device that allowed one to breath in the Terrigen Mists through a retrofitted oxygen tank. He used this device to have Luna exposed to the mists. Terrigenesis endowed Luna with the ability to see and read the emotional auras of others. Hoping to further augment his daughter’s powers, Quicksilver had Luna breath in the mists successive times. This indeed acted to enhance Luna’s abilities, making her a functional empath, able to read and manipulate the emotions of others; yet it additionally left her effectively addicted to the Terrigen Mists and being denied the mists caused Luna to experience severe withdrawal pains.
Unsure how to handle the addiction he had unwittingly subjected his daughter to, Quicksilver took Luna back to Attilan and left her in the care of her mother, Crystal. Inhuman physicians were able to cure Luna of the addiction, although she maintained some degree of her heightened powers. Karnak helped to train Luna to utilize her abilities to read auras as an asset to her skills as a combatant. Being able to read and understand the emotions of others seemed to accelerate Luna’s psychological maturation. She became a much more serious and solemn child, very compassionate and kind, but no longer as happy and carefree as she once was. It was as if the exposure to all of the different emotions of others caused her to know and understand things well ahead of other children her age; and this enhanced knowledge has essentially robed her of the joyful innocence of childhood.
Maximus later tricked Luna into using her newfound powers to undo the mental shackles that suppressed his own manipulative powers. Freed from these bonds, Maximus staged yet another coup in an effort to dethrone his brother, Black Bolt, and take the crown for himself. Angry and remorseful over being tricked in such a way, Luna attempted to make amends by using her abilities to help the king’s son, Ahura, gain grater control of his mental abilities and thus cure him of his alleged madness.
Following his theft of the Terrigen Crystals, Luna’s father was dubbed a traitor of the highest order. After the events of the Skrulls’ near-successful invasion of Earth, Quicksilver returned to Attilan and explained to the Royal Family that he was innocent. He stated that the being who stole the crystals was actually a Super Skrull imposter who had taken on the guise of Quicksilver as part of a plot to cripple the Inhumans capacities for Terrigenesis. Many Inhumans had been similarly replaced with Skrull imposters, including Black Bolt himself, and Crystal and the others believed Quicksilver’s claim. With her abilities to read emotional auras, however, Luna was able to tell that her father was lying. Luna whispered to her father that she knew the truth, that he had never been replaced with a Skrull imposter. She added that she would keep her father’s secret, but that it would forever cost him the respect of his daughter.
Quicksilver later admitted his false claims and recanted this tale of being replaced by a Skrull. Although this made Quicksilver a pariah once again on Attilan, it won him back the love and respect of his daughter.
Luna was a student for a short while at The Future Foundation. While with The FF, Luna made a dear friend in Adolf The Impossible Boy who shared in her love of Shojo Anime. Luna assisted The Future Foundation in a battle against Doctor Doom, piloting a Thing-suit android via remote control alongside Adolf and the other FF students.
More recently, Luna has been seen spending time with her father in his duties with the most recent iteration of X-Factor. She had visited her dad without her mother’s consent and, at first, Crystal was worried that Quicksilver had once again abducted their daughter. Gorgon was sent to take care of Quicksilver and return Luna to Attilan. This resulted in a short battle between Gorgon and X-Factor which ended when Crystal arrived and Luna explained that she had come to see her father of her own volition.
More recently, it has been revealed that Luna had be enrolled in the Braddock Academy boarding school where her mother had hoped Luna would find a safer, less conflict-ridden learning environment. Luna did not care for the school and has dropped out, finding her way back to her mother aboard the RIV.
