"Someday, he will be king."
―Agon to Kitang[src]

Agon was the former King of the Inhumans and father of Black Bolt and Maximus.


King of Attilan

Conflict with Royalty

Medusa and Crystal's parents tried to tear down the caste system by overthrowing the royal family that had ruled Attilan for centuries. Agon and his wife Rynda later executed them, but spared Medusa and Crystal.[1]

Black Bolt's Terrigenesis


Rynda and Agon chose to protect Black Bolt

After their older son underwent Terrigenesis, he was evaluated by the Genetic Council. As the current leader of the council, Kitang reported the results to Agon and Rynda, and advised, that Blackagar should be accommodated somewhere for the safety of Attilan and his own, as he is has most powerful and dangerous gift in all of Inhuman history, and capable of destroying the city unintentionally. Both Agon and Rynda refused the idea of their son being locked away, and stated that he will learn to control his power, and that one day he would be king.[2]


"Are you going to use your voice to kill me like you did to our parents?"
Maximus to Black Bolt[src]

As he confronted his parent about the falsified document, he accidentally shouted and realized how dangerous his voice could be, after it disintegrated both his mother and father instantly. Maximus claimed to hold this action against him for the rest of their lives, even though he was responsible for their deaths as well.[3]
