First Appearance: Inhumans IV#1 (June, 2000)
Powers/Abilities: Since his Terrigenesis Ikarys possessed bird-like wings that gave him the ability of flight. He wore an instrument (looked like an Inhuman version of a tuba or French horn) around his neck to alarm the other Inhumans if Attilan was attacked.
(Inhumans IV#1) - Ikarys was Black Bolt's trusted guardian of Attilan. He flew over the city and reported to Arvak that there was no sight of any human menaces. Afterwards he resumed his watch over the city. Later that night Kree took over Attilan.
(Inhumans IV#4) - After Black Bolt had defeated Ronan several Inhumans came to him to tell him that they didn't want to return to Earth and that space was now their home. Ikarys was one of them. He stayed on the flying city Attilan in space while the Royal Family returned to Earth.
(Realm of Kings: Inhumans#1) - Ikarys accepted consulship of Kree world Kon-Tur when suddenly forces of Blastaar attacked the world. Inhumans led by Gorgon defeated them.
Comments: Created by Carlos Pacheco, Rafael Marin & Jose Ladronn.
Ikarys is obviously a play on Ikarus of Greek mythology fame.
Attilan eventually returned to Earth's moon.
Thanks to Cheetahbot for correcting me on the instrument.
There is a possible appearance of this character in Fantastic Four I#150. Before the wedding of Quicksilver and Crystal, 2 winged Inhumans
(Heralds of the Great Refuge) took flight and using their great horns
they flew around the city of Attilan and proclaimed the news of the
event. In the story the 2 Inhumans were not named but they appeared to
be twins and looked identical to Ikarys.
