Marvel Brings Back Adam Warlock via Infinity Countdown: Adam Warlock # 1
Marvel continues to hype up their upcoming Infinity storyline which started with Wolverine’s return in Marvel Legacy # 1 and they are doing so with a name synonymous to any Infinity/ cosmic based storyline, Adam Warlock!
Check out the Adam Warlockk teaser below plus the solicit for the one-shot.
ADAM WARLOCK IS BACK! Reborn from the realm of the dead, Adam has come seeking the Soul Stone…and the truth about what it did to Him! His guide through this Infinity Quest is none other than…Kang the Conqueror?!? Be there as Adam begins down the dark trail sure to lead him into the heart of the mystery of the Infinity Stones…
Infinity Countdown: Adam Warlock #1, by Gerry Duggan and Aaron Kuder, goes on sale Feb. 7, 2018, from Marvel Comics.
So it looks like this would run side-by-side with whatever’s happening with Logan, Star-Lord and Captain Marvel as teased by Marvel two weeks ago.
The character was last seen at the end of Infinity Finale where he was brought back to life by Thanos. He “died” six years ago in the Thanos Imperative.
Adam Warlock WAS teased in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 but has never resurfaced since. Good timing though as 2018 also marks the release year for the Russo Brother’s Avengers: Infinity War. February 2018 is also the release date for Marvel’s Black Panther starring Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa. Maybe Warlock’s first appearance in the MCU would be in ‘Black Panther’. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it.
