Well Vision already blew up his spot. Artificial man with an infinity stone.

Someone screwed up in Avengers #2 making Adam and Vision too similar. And the tease we got of Adam's cocoon in GotG was supposedly just a sight gag never meant to imply Adam was going to join the MCU verse.

So they've screwed up twice. That said...I have zero interest in ever seeing Adam in the MCU. Infinity Gauntlet was good but Adam's been awful ever since IMO. Infinity War/Crusade and all the Infinity events after were awful.

Basically the plot of these Infinity events usually follows a simple formula:

1. Adam is special to the universe blah blah blah
2. Thanos is super smart and better than everyone blah blah blah
3. one of the two of them has messed up causing the cosmic ascendancy of a third party
4. Every other hero and villain stands around being useless to the plot.
5. Adam and Thanos team up and resolve the plot.

Rinse and repeat.

It would be a cheat to have a character introduced in the third act be integral to the defeat of Thanos. If they were going to have Adam Warlock be a major player, they should have introduced him years ago.

Plus I don't think he's interesting enough for fans to have a reason to care about him.




And a lean, silent figure slowly fades into the gathering darkness, aware at last that in this world, with great power there must also come -- great responsibility!

I personally would love to see Adam Warlock in the MCU.

But your analysis of infinity plots is spot on.

Well done.

Warlock always sort of showed up everybody around him. More because of Starlin's writing than anything. Maybe that just got too old for me eventually.

I have grown whenever I saw the guy outside of when he was on the Guardians.

AW showed have shown up as his real enemy, only one able to stop him, and the second part would have had him becoming the Magus!

Mar-Vell should be his arch nemesis.

RM is so right, spot on. But much like Tiamat, I love it.
