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.

    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.


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.
