Update January 29, 2015 at 5:40pm E.S.T.: Since the original announcement of this Thursday on Marvel's website, a press release from the company revealed that Medusa and Black Bolt will be at odds in this series.

The press release cites a "rebellion" after the formation of Battleworld, with "underground revolutionaries" led by Black Bolt planning for an "uprising" against unnamed controlling force. Medusa is promised to be tasked however to be "rooting out the rebels," which sounds reminscient of something out of Marvel's other new series Star Wars.

Original Story: The past few months have been good for Marvel's Inhumans, but are they prepared for the coming Secret Wars?

On Thursday Marvel announced that the previously teased "Attilan Rising" will be in fact a new ongoing series tying into Secret Wars titled Inhumans: Attilan Rising. Inhuman and Uncanny Inhumans writer Charles Soule is joining with artist John Timms for what Marvel calls "a tale of romance and intrigue" that runs through the center of Secret Wars.

“One of the ideas behind Inhumans: Attilan Rising from the start was to put Medusa, Black Bolt, Reader, Iso, and other characters from Inhuman into a new context,” shares Soule. “That’s part of the fun of an event like Secret Wars. Things don’t have to be the way we’re used to seeing them."

Soule says his initial concept for this series was to imagine this splinter race "from almost a World War 2 French Resistance type of angle."

Inhumans: Attilan Rising joins the current Inhuman and recently announced Uncanny Inhumans ongoings to total three core Inhuman comic series Marvel will be publishing come May. This is in addition to recently created solo Inhuman characters such as Ms. Marvel who also have ongoing series.

Soule says that that the Inhumans royal couple of Black Bolt and Medusa will be front and center in Inhumans: Attilan Rising, with this being the opportune place to "shake things up and think about them in a different way."

Soule goes on to describe Inhumans: Attilan Rising as a "sweeping war epic," and a type of story writers "gon't get to tell very often."
