Who is Medusa?

Medusa is an Inhuman and a member of the Inhuman Royal family.  She is the Queen of the Inhumans and acts as the voice of King BlackboltBlackbolt must remain silent so as not to unleash his extremely destructive voice, luckily he has a minor amount of telepathy that allows him to communicate with people he is close to.  The telepathic connection between Blackbolt and Medusa allows her to read his mind and say what he is thinking.  Entertainment Weekly has revealed that actress Serinda Swan will play Medusa (More on this at bottom of page).

Medusa has an interesting power she has long hair that she can move and control.  The hair is extremely strong and tough.  It is said to be stronger than Iron.
She can snap her hair like a whip, use it to entangle people or climb like a rope, or lift and throw massive objects.
She is kind of like Rapunzel on steroids.


Medusa and her younger sister Crystal are part of the Inhuman Royal Family and distant cousins of Blackbolt and Maximus the Mad.  Medusa is attracted to Blackbolt from a young age and visited him often during his confinement as a youth.  She practiced communicating with him first through body language, then sign language and later through mental telepathy.  She was present when he was released and when Maximus attempted to trick him into using his power.

At some points she has explored Earth rather extensively and this has boosted her immune system to an average human level.

Medusa is also sought after by Maximus in addition to the throne.  She spurns him, which only fuels his anger even more.

Marvel Cinematic Universe:

Inhumans Film / Show
ABC's Inhumans - Medusa

There is going to be an Inhumans Show on ABC that will also have 2 episodes appear in Imax theaters.  It is unknown who will play Medusa in the upcoming show or how she will be depicted.
Entertainment Weekly has revealed that actress Serinda Swan will play Medusa.  Serinda is known for playing Zantana on the show Smallville.

Marvel TV Head Jeph Loeb commented to Entertainment Weekly that:
 "Serinda empowers Medusa’s regal glory and still maintains a relatability that synced perfectly with the character. She is nothing short of wonderful." 
Serinda has had other notable roles as Aphrodite in Percy Jackson and the Lightning Theif, a Siren in Tron Legacy.  She also has had roles in Graceland, Chicago Fire and the Tomorrow People.

I remember thinking she looks extremely striking as a siren in Tron Legacy.  She had a kind of other worldly alien beauty that punched you in the eye and that may also serve her well as Medusa.  I would say the royal couple of Black Bolt (Who will be played by Anson Mount) and Medusa have facial features that emote a sense of power, beauty and also have a unique beautity that is slightly non human.  That seems odd to say about too beautiful people but its like their faces are too perfect be real.  Just stepping back I think that will work out great for the Inhumans.  The Inhumans after all are like humans but not.

I really can not wait to get some art of all these characters.
