History

Black Bolt is a member of the genetic offshoot of humanity, called the Inhumans, who lived in the island city of Attilan. He was born to two of Attilan’s top geneticists, Agon, head of the ruling Council of Genetics, and Rynda, director of the Prenatal Care Center. Subjected to the mutagenic Terrigen Mist while still an embryo, Black Bolt was born with strange powers surpassing even the Inhuman’s norm. As an infant, he demonstrated certain destructive energy-manipulative abilities which he could not yet control. To protect the community, he was placed inside a sound-proofed chamber and given an energy-harnessing suit. There, he was schooled in the art of controlling his powers until the age of nineteen, when he was permitted to enter society.

A month after being awarded his freedom, Black Bolt discovered his younger brother, Maximus, in the process of making a treacherous pact with emissaries of the alien race called the Kree. Attempting to stop the Kree ship before it escaped, Black Bolt used the forbidden power of his quasi-sonic voice to knock the ship out of the sky. When the ship crashed to Earth, it landed on the Parliament building, killing several key members of the Council, including his parents, and left his brother insane. Despite his guilt and silent protests, Black Bolt was obligated to accept the mantle of leadership of the Inhumans at the age of twenty.

Black Bolt’s first crisis in leadership came when his cousin Triton was briefly held captive by humans. Learning of Triton’s encounter upon his escape, Black Bolt decided that the Inhumans’ island home should be moved to a remote location in the Himalayas.

After the great migration, Black Bolt faced his second great crisis when his mad brother Maximus unleashed the Trikon, three of the Inhumans’ worker drones who were transformed into energy beings. The Trikon enabled Maximus to wrest the rule from his brother and sent Black Bolt and other members of the Royal family into exile. For the next few years, Black Bolt and his kinsmen wandered Asia, Europe, and finally the Americas, in search of his betrothed mate, Medusa, who had been separated form the other during the battle with the Trikon. Eventually Black Bolt was reunited with Medusa and the Royal Family resumed the crown.

Black Bolt has led the Inhumans through some of the most turbulent times in their history, including several more attempts by Maximus to usurp the throne, revolts by the worker class, attacks by human renegades, the kidnapping of Medusa, the destruction and rebuilding of Attilan, the revelation of the Inhuman’s existence to humanity, and finally the second relocation of Attilan to the Blue Area of the Moon. Once there, Black Bolt had completed the traditionally lengthy period of betrothal, and Black Bolt and Medusa were wed. More recently, Medusa gave birth to Black Bolt’s son.
