    I was looking for this thread the other day but could not find it. I am glad you posted Juan!

    I think we need to give Crystal some regular love, talk about her character, unique look and her very powerful Elemental Powers!

    Crystal the Elemental is one of my favorites!

    I was at first hoping that she would be on the Avengers, with it building up a past team of ancient times, having Randac joing that team and having some secret the Inhumans kept. But as it went on a became basically an unfunny improv sketch I now hope for a new place.

    Crystal is probably my favorite Inhuman -- because her lithe appearance really hides the level of power she has. I think she works best, though, outside of Inhumans stories -- as they tend to move her to the background for some reason.

    I feel like writers don't know what to with her in Inhumans books because she doesn't have a formal job in monarchy, just princess, plus she was on the f4 for a lot of their early appearances. Despite being pretty popular at several points she always ends up disappearing in actual inhumans titles. Barely in the 75run, barely in Jenkin/lee, absent for the first three years of the Inhuman push.

    Well she was in All-New Inhumans, as the leader of the team as well.

    Wait...Randac! I remember his name from long ago. Medusa would say "Randac's Bones!".

    I think he was the first Inhuman to use the mists and gained huge mental powers?

    Isn't he long dead? If not, where/when/how....lol?

    I agree. Crystal does indeed control and command a lot of power. Most think she is weak because modern stories do not show her much or her power potential.

    I think writers of today do not know much about Crystal and just say, yada, yada, she controls heat, ice." They do not know or go back to the old stories which did show Crystal utilizing a wide variety of powers. I also think the writers of today have their own look on characters (and mostly not to positive) and they draw them just standing around.

    Yes he is dead, the idea I thought would have been cool would have been if he had joined the Avengers 1,000,000,000 BC have some sort of thing that he agreed to keep hidden in Attilian that required a member of Inhuman Royalty to get. The Avengers get their elementilst back, Inhumans are used again, and a bit more story is revealed of the Avengers BC.

    Oh, thought I missed something big, lol!

    I like your idea. I think Randac may have had ubber strong mental powers and I would like to see that in action.

    All New Inhumans was probably my favorite book for Crystal bc she was the leader of the team and there was so much potential for her there. I wish another writer would pick that up n explore it.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Anyone unfamiliar with her abilities should read Fantastic Four #100 by Lee/Kirby. It was one of the first times a Marvel female kicked butt (figuratively).
