The Inhumans are a race of super-powered beings, who live apart from humanity.
Terrigenisis is the process in which an Inhuman is given their powers. It involves a Terrigen Bomb releasing the Terrigen Mist from its crystal, which in turn activates the powers of an Inhuman or Inhumans in the Terrigen Chamber.
The process of power giving is random, leading to some unfortunate cases where the Terrigen Mist deforms an Inhuman, by warping their appearance, alongside a new power.
- Vijay Nadeer is a loose thread in the MCU from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. leftover from before the series. He currently remains in a Terrigen cocoon in the ocean.
- Inhumans were introduced into the MCU to supplement the space normally taken up by Mutants in a Marvel Universe; because at the time 20th Century Fox held the rights to Mutants for their X-Men film series (with Disney buying the company roughly five years later).
