Medusa and Gorgon (her ex-husband's first cousin) make out in this issue.

I hated her with the Human Torch since he had already been with her sister but good god this is much worse. Stop dating your relatives love interests and your ex-husband's relatives Medusa. At least Crystal doesn't date the in-laws.

Interesting.

I'm not much of a Crystal fan since the Pietro marriage.

I had no sympathy for her hurt feelings about Medusa and Johnny as she cheated on and dumped him. I didn't feel she had any rights to claim him like some sort of old trophy she'd left behind.

When I read the title I expected Karnak to be getting it on with Lockjaw.

Feh. Being with Black Bolt's cousin is better than being with her own cousin. This isn't creepy at all.

But Gorgon is a huge step down, imo.

But Black Bolt isn't her first cousin. We don't know HOW distant a cousin he is but considering you only share 3.13% of DNA with your second cousin and about 0.78% of a percent with your third cousins it's not really a big deal.

On her mother's side her first cousins are Triton and Karnak and on her father's side her cousin is Psynapse. If she mated with one of them she would have a problem since first cousins share 12.5% of their DNA.

Black Bolt and Medusa are not really close relatives. We know who their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles are etc.

Nobody wants their siblings to bang their exes.

Still closer genetically than Gorgon.

First cousins don't really have problems, genetically, either, unless the practice is continued for several generations. Most of the world allows first cousins to marry and have kids.

Cousins of cousins? May as well not even be considered relatives.

How do we know that?

1. We don't know who Gorgon's mother Milena's parents or siblings are or who Medusa's father Quelin's parents or siblings are (I think they implied Psynapse was his nephew).
2. We know Black Bolt and Medusa are not first cousins.

Exactly. That's exactly what Black Bolt (and Maximus) are to Medusa (and Crystal). Karnak and Triton are Black Bolt and Maximus's cousins because Rynda (Black Bolt and Maximus's mother) is the sister of Mander (Triton and Karnak's father). Karnak and Triton are Medusa and Crystal's cousins because their mother Azur is the sister of Crystal and Medusa's mother Ambur. Black Bolt and Medusa just share 2 cousins.

If the relationship were closer, it would be closer. It just isn't. At best, he's the cousin of a cousin, which is nothing.
