I know, right? they’re perfect together. They were betrothed to one another during the whole ‘War of The Kings’ arc, where Ronan agreed to kneel down to Black Bolt and offer him rulership over the Kree People. In exchange, Ronan required Crystal’s hand in marriage (a political marriage to ensure Ronan a place in the Inhuman/Kree ruling order).
At first, neither were too keen on the idea. Crystal was especially put out. She didn’t want to marry Ronan and was angered that her cousin and brother-in-law, Black Bolt, had offered her hand without her consent. As things progressed, however, Crystal began to warm up to Ronan, respect his honor and the way he comported himself in combat. Plus it turned out that Ronan didn’t just want to marry Crys for political reasons, he actually loved her.
Unfortunately, just as they had come to a point where Ronan and Crys were happy with one another, Black Bolt ruled them separated. This all happened during Hickman’s run on FF. It was a stipulation of Black Bolt taking the throne of the whole ‘Universal Inhumans’ deal. It wasn’t entirely clear to me why this had to happen.. something about there being too much of a consolidation of power. Bolt essentially relinquished rulership over the Kree and, as a byproduct of this, Crys and Ronan were split up. There was this really sad scene in which Ron and Crys were dragged away from one another. Nick Dragotta illustrated it and he did a terrific job of capturing the looks of utter desperation and sadness on both their faces.
As things stand currently, Crystal and Ronan remain literally ‘star-crossed lovers,’ longing for one another while separated by a galaxy. Hopefully, the story will be picked up upon in the near future..
