Secret Wars Volume 1
Cabal: Covert / Tech
Maximus is the son of Agon and Rynda, the Inhumans? hereditary rulers in the hidden city of Attilan. Maximus and his older brother, Black Bolt, were each subjected to the Inhumans? Terrigen Mist while they were infants. Black Bolt developed vast power almost immediately, including a devastating quasi-sonic voice that can destroy almost any structure, forcing him to observe silence. Maximus? powers manifested later in his life when he developed the power to control minds and emotions. He keeps the nature of his abilities largely to himself as well as his lust for power.
