what do you think about what iwan said, like how the mists made maximus a human?
My guess is that it is a red herring. In the comics, Maximus’ possessing telepathic powers wasn’t revealed until well past his initial appearances in Fantastic Four. It was assumed that Terrigenesis had endowed him with his genius intellect and that was all. He kept his mental powers a secret as a means to further bolster his capacities for manipulation.
The Inhumans TV show may be doing something similar, where Maximus is keeping under wraps his ability to psychically manipulate others… and that Mr. Rheon is playing along so to add to the surprise twist when it’s revealed in the plot.
at least that’s my suspicion. what do you all think?
