Do Marvel's latest trailers point to Fraction's "Inhumanity" event?



Source: Bleeding Cool

Marvel released a trailer on Wednesday that asked the question “Is He?” With the announcement that “"The Marvel Universe is on the brink of a major change. Find out more, September 18th!" That date just happens to be when the third issue of Infinity drops. So it’s natural the two are related.

(WARNING! Infinity spoilers and possible spoilers ahead.)

Could “He” be the person the person Black Bolt claimed Thanos invaded the Earth looking for at the end of the second issue of Infinity?

 

That theory sort of goes out the window with a second Marvel trailer asking “Are They?”

 



Could the trailers relate so something else spiraling out of Infinity? The answer to the question may be in the trailer’s background, which features a mysterious whiff of air. Could it be smoke? Or could it be a mist of some sort? Like the Inhumans’ Terragen Mists, perhaps?  Ah, now we’re on to something.

Back in July Marvel announced Matt Fraction’s “Inhumanity” project, which promised to transform the Marvel Universe by exposing long-lost decedents of the Inhumans to Terrigen Mists released into Earth’s atmosphere. The result is their transformation into the kind of Inhumans we’ve all known and love since Stan Lee and Jack Kirby introduced them during as a group in Fantastic Four vol.1 #45 (joining the previously introduced Madame Medusa and Gorgon).

Fraction described "Inhumanity" to EW.com as “a superhero story and a mythical story, all revolving around turning the world into a world full of superheroes” which provided “a chance to get back to a classic Marvel metaphor of alienation.” Well, the Mutants in the X-Books can’t have all the fun with that now, can they?

Marvel Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso compared "Inhumanity’s" centerpiece, a new Inhuman book written by Fraction to Game of Thrones, promising the shattering of Black Bolt’s Royal Family resulting from Attalin’s destruction.

The "Inhumanity" event sounds like the best answer to the questions in the trailers. We’ll have to wait for September 18 to find out for sure.

Maybe each one of these is a Marvel NOW Phase 2 book? If it were, though, I'd imagine they would use the same format as last year.

It could be two books, but I think they may both be Inhumanity related. "Is He?" could be about Thanos Jr. who may be an Inhuman or of Inhuman decent and doesn't know it. (I suspect it's someone we've met as well).

Inhumans becoming the new mutants of the Marvel Universe in the sense of being outcasts should lead to some interesting stories if done right. I would love to know if the Sentinels and other Anti-Mutant groups would start targeting them as well.

Apparently "Spider Island" was popular enough to try that plot again with Inhumans :groucho:

I don't know how "outcast" the new Inhumans are going to be, but I expect some conflict with certain members of Homo Superior in the future.

Plus, I've read the book will be more on the line of Game of Thrones in some ways, with Inhumans aligning themselves with various factions of the divided Royal Family.

Somehow I was just reminded of the Ultraverse for some reason because of this.
