You learned that he was replaced by the Skrulls in New Avengers: Illuminati, now it's time to find out if the Inhumans' former king is dead or alive! How will the loss of their leader tear apart the Royal Family? Can the mighty monarch recover from this personal blow – that is, if he's even still living? And how far will Medusa, Crystal, Triton, Karnak and Gorgon go to find their disposed king?
