In the comics, Maximus is nicknamed “Maximus the Mad.” He is notoriously known as a roguish Inhuman with a strong desire to become king and eliminate his brother – Black Bolt. Maximus collides with his brother on numerous occasions, often mirroring the aggressive brotherly relationship of Loki and Thor from Marvel's Thor.
