When Black Bolt is captured and interrogated by Medusa, he both questions her loyalty to Doom and also tells her there are towers that broadcast signals that force people to accept the world as it is, rather than see what it could be. Black Bolt isn't affected, and he tells Medusa that people are more willing to questions and less affected once they're made aware of the truth.
They also talk about why Black Bolt hasn't been through Terrigenesis, and he answers that it's a matter of control. Once you get your gifts, you're not allowed to choose where you want to go. Your powers dictate that, and that's where you are for the rest of your life. The example he uses is an artist who gets offensive abilities, and is put on the security team.
Transformers time. I didn't put it together, despite reading some about this in the Inhumans series by Jenkins and Lee. I think that's because it's a little bolder here: it's a huge point in this series, a huge motivator, and stated far more plainly as a form of Functionalism than in the previous series. In Transformers, the Decepticons were originally acting out against Functionalism, or the belief that what you turned into was your function. Like Jetfire was told that because he was a flier, he couldn't be a scientist. Fliers aren't scientists, they're made for battle. They, much like Black Bolt, wanted the freedom to be whatever they wanted. (Both Functionalism and Attilan had problems with racism of a sort: if you didn't turn into something good, or you didn't get top notch, or even good, gifts during Terrigenesis, you were outcasts. Ravage was always treated like an animal because of his panther form and in the Inhumans series - Jenkins and Lee again - there's a lot about that: a girl who's hands are deformed and is told that her best friend that they can no longer be friends, or Wuz, the boy who turns into an Alpha Primitive and is forced down into their literal underground society. They are the morlocks of Attilan, these Alpha Primitives.)
Anyway, loved this issue. The fact that Black Bolt is tortured is a plus, because I like seeing this in my favorite characters. I also hope for a hurt/comfort story, and I like seeing how much they can take, even if there's no real comfort in the end.
