Following up on an announcement mentioned in passing on a Marvel podcast in July, the publisher has now released more details on a new Inhumans series starring Crystal. Scheduled to launch in December, All-New Inhumans will be the second Inhumans team title in the "All-New All Different Marvel" alongside Uncanny Inhumans (and taking the place of Inhuman). The series is written by Charles Soule along with James Asmus, and illustrated by Stefano Caselli.
“All-New Inhumans in particular will focus on the strange and dangerous complications that come from a global unleashing of NuHumans,” said Soule. “This book will be the number one way to see exactly how the Marvel Universe is changing as the Terrigen Cloud moves through the world. It’s about getting into countries hit by the cloud--through any means necessary--to help those who need it, and stop those out to kill/exploit/harvest their fellow NuHumans. But of course, new teams and global politics being what they are, there are a million ways for even the best intentions to go wrong. And maybe not everyone on our team has the best intentions to begin with…”
Crystal will lead a team comprised of fellow classic Inhuman Gorgon, along with NuHumans Flint, Naja and Grid. They are investigating the appearance of strange obelisks called "Skyspears" that have appeared across Earth that magnify Inhumans' abilities.
“Skyspears are big obelisk-type artifacts that have appeared in or near population centers all around the globe,” explains Soule. “They can't be moved, or damaged, or even really affected in any way. Their purpose is part of a pretty long play, but the All-New Inhumans will definitely be involved with their ongoing story.”
Soule describes All-New Inhumans as "smaller in scope" than Uncanny Inhumans, which he said focuses on "the more epic conflicts of the Inhuman Royal Family." This new series will be more "personal," looking to build up its cast and the new crop of Inhumans recently introduced.
