Black Bolt Synergy Guide

Black Bolt is a Cosmic class champion who forms a synergy with 11 other characters, available as a 2-Star, 3-Star, 4-Star and 6-Star champion.

Husband of Medusa. Brother of Maximus the Mad. Liege lord of his people. Black Bolt, king of the Inhumans, carries inside him a terrible power. One utterance, one whisper, one hushed sliver of speech from his mouth is enough to unleash a destructive force capable of rendering planets in two. Thus the leader of all Inhumans must rule in strength … and silence.
