Wednz Scene: Marvel’s Inhumans

August 16 / 17 Hey again….with new tv shows coming next month, I wanted to start off with Marvel’s Inhumans. This is based on a group of superhumans with superpowers of course. Let’s dive a little deeper….   The Inhumans are a fictional race of superhumans appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The comic book series has usually focused more specifically on the adventures of the Inhuman Royal Family, and many people associate the name “Inhumans” with this particular team of super-powered characters. – Wikipedia The Inhumans made their first debut in December 1965 in Fantastic Four#45.  The core members of the Inhumans: Black Bolt, Medusa, Karnak, Gorgan, Triton, Crystal, Maximus the Mad, The Unspoken, and Lockjaw. I’m sure some of you have seen the previews for the upcoming show, but for those of you who didn’t take a look at these….       The 8 part episode live-action series will premiere on ABC in September 2017. The first two episodes will be screened in IMAX theaters on September 1 for two weeks. Come back for Weekend Scene this Saturday.  Enjoy …
