      All of those reasons are why I think he was generally a horrible character for decades. Nor do I like what you attribute to kings, and especially shouldn't have godlike qualities. The only king I ever liked was Aragorn because he was for all intents and purposes a commoner (and because his story pretty much ended at the crown).

    I'm not saying he's a GOOD king. I'm pretty sure you and I have had countless discussions about just how awful Black Bolt and the royal family are values wise.

I'm not even getting into my issues with him on an ethical/moral level. He's a horribly boring character, unless you can get into his mind and see how he thinks. Unless you can do that, he's nothing but a plot device. On top of this, he was stoic as heck, which makes it worse. This is why he tended to always have Medusa speak (and think) for him.
