Meet Marvel’s Inhumans Medusa
Prior to her role as the Queen of Attilan, Medusa was part of the Frightful Four who are the wicked equivalent of the Fantastic Four. However, she reportedly lost her memories after Maximus seized the throne from her husband, Black Bolt.
Upon regaining her memories, she assumed the role of queen of the Inhumans. Moreover, she eventually became one of Marvel’s top heroines and occasionally joins the Fantastic Four.
She has also starred in several book titles as the exclusive ruler of the Inhumans. Moreover, she was also part of the all-female Avengers team known as the A-Force–emerging as proof of her own ability and power.
Yet her most interesting attribute is one many comic book fans are eager to see rendered onscreen, Nerdist remarked. Indeed, Medusa’s red hair is her most striking feature.
While it might call to mind Rapunzel in the animated movie Tangled, Medusa’s hair gives her the ability to do much more owing to its tensile strength. She can also extend it at will and use it to carry herself.
