Okay, I don't want to half-ass this, so I'm going to ask a series of questions.
1. If a normal-looking Inhuman woman, for example, marries a normal man, is there a possibility that their child is born as a monstrous inhuman? I know there are genetic 'castes' among the inhumans and I wasn't sure if monstrous deformities could come from the offspring of 'purer' lineages.
2. Conversely, if a very tolerant, very body-positive man marries a 'lower' caste inhuman woman with monstrous deformities, then I assume their child will likely have monstrous deformities too. Would the child's deformities have to match the mothers?
3. I assume that in the age where the majority of the population has superpowers, mutants and inhumans are no longer shunned, and are welcome in broader society. Is this true?
4. Since Terrigen Mist can have such an irreversible effect on Inhumans (and depowered mutants, apparently), and there are a lot of inhumans and mutants mingling in the world population (assuming question 3 is true), then Terrigen Mist would be a highly controlled substance right? I ask this because I don't want to have a cop-out origin story where my character has a random 'whoops! exposure to Terrigen Mist!' moment, and bam! suddenly has deformities and powers.
With the answers to most of these questions, I can hopefully massage the character's origin/history into something that is acceptable.
1/2 Answered Together. The results of Terragenesis are, as far as I know, pretty much completely random, and not always subject to the 'castes.' Also in our universe, the Royal Family doesn't really have as much power of Inhumans as a whole as they do in 616/the comics; this is because Terragenesis has happened around the world and is happening more frequently.
3. Yeah, pretty much! There are still some haters, but they're mostly just pricks. Fucking pricks.
4. To be honest, I hadn't really thought about the details! In my head, there was something similar to the T-Bomb that happened, causing more or less global Terragenesis in years prior! For now, let's go with yes: Terragenesis is currently a controlled substance, and someone -- maybe Karnak as a government official, or whatever -- gives parents the option to expose their children to T-Mist early on in their lives.
I hope that covers everything! If it didn't, we can discuss more or whatever, I definitely don't mind! I also dragged the talk over here because I want to unsubscribe from the interest check LOL
