It’s easy to think Marvel can do no wrong but sometimes it can pull an Iron Fist (opens in new tab)-sized misstep or, even worse in the case of Marvel's new TV show Inhumans, make each super-powered character look like “stupid cosplay”. Not my words, it’s the internet’s - and, let me tell you, hell hath no fury like an internet scorned.
Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab) revealed the first shot from Inhumans which looks, let’s face it, pretty meh. At least everyone reacted in a calm and sensible fashion… Except, social media isn’t the place for nuanced discussion and went to town with how unimpressive it all looked. Remember, people, first impressions are important.

That #Inhumans pic is so hilariously awful. It's so bad that I was instantly reminded of that terrible 1980's Munsters tv show revival... pic.twitter.com/ruSdADmtmUMay 4, 2017

I'm sorry, the inhumans look awful. These costumes are looking more like real everyday outfits mixed with stupid cosplay. Medusa looks trashMay 4, 2017

The most laughable part about this is that Inhumans was going to be a big budget blockbuster from Marvel now it looks like a CW showMay 4, 2017
