Why are the Inhumans so hated? Is it because Marvel has forced them on us because Fox keeps the mutants out of their film and television hands? Is it because we’re getting them instead of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Is it because their big screen debut had such lousy distribution? Who are Jack Kirby’s least-loved creations, and why are they so hated? The answers, and a review of the first two episodes, after the jump.
