A giant teleporting dog, a secret city on the moon and a royal family pretty much sums up Inhumans, one of Marvel's latest entries on the small screen. Created by Scott Buck, the upcoming ABC series revolves around the Inhuman royal family who is forced to escape their home on the moon and flee to Earth, specifically Hawaii, in order to survive and ultimately save the world.

So what or who are the Inhumans? Inhumans were the result of experiments on ancient humans by the extraterrestrial race. They first appeared in Fantastic Four comics #45 in December 1965 and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. first introduced the idea of an Inhuman on television.
On the ABC series, Black Bolt (Anson Mount) takes the lead as the head of the Inhuman Royal Family and King of Attilan. Other notable characters include Gorgon (Eme Ikwuakor), who is considered the Guardian, Karnak (Ken Leung), who is the Visionary, Auran (Sonya Balmores), who is also known as the Assassin, Triton (Mike Moh), who serves as the Operative, Crystal (Isabelle Cornish) the Princess, Medusa (Serinda Swan) the Queen, and Maximus (Iwan Rheon), who is described as the Revolutionary.
Like most families, the Royal Family is not immune to drama. Black Bolt's brother, Maximus, not only desires to be king himself, he also wants who he can't have.
Not surprisingly, it's Maximus who starts the war that eventually leads to chaos on Earth.
