Per the official release, Black Bolt is the “enigmatic, commanding King of the Inhumans, with a voice so powerful that the slightest whisper can destroy a city.”
The eight-episode series will tell the story of Black Bolt and the royal family. In the comics, Maximus is Black Bolt’s somewhat deranged brother/adversary.
