Q&A: Black Bolt

Black BoltBlackagar Boltagon is King of the Inhuhmans Royal Family, as well as being a member of The Illuminati. Subjected to mutagenic Terrigen Mist while still an embryo, he was born with an array of powers, such as speed, flight, strength and endurance, but it is the capacity of his vocal chords to turn any sound into a correlative destructive force that requires his vow of life-long silence. He is married to Medusa, his cousin, and they have one child, Ahura. This interview was conducted by email.
