I've recently re-read the Adversary's appearances in Uncanny X-Men and X-Factor (and Howling Commandos of SHIELD, but there's not much meat on that bone...).

I think I come closest to understanding the Adversary when I think of him as an unwitting agent of a higher cosmic power. Like Chaos, or even The Inbetweener. His whole "destroy everything" purpose doesn't make much sense when it's been made clear that he wouldn't survive it. BUT, it's easier to wrap my head around the idea of The Adversary as essentially a pre-programmed cosmic being carrying out it's programming.

If this were the case, here's my question. Was he created specifically as a counter-balance to Roma, and she used the Cheyenne as agents against him? Was he created specifically to counter the growing spiritual awareness of the Cheyenne people? Was he created as a general agent of Chaos, and the Cheyenne and/or Roma just stumbled across him?

The Roma/Cheyenne people team-up is a weird one that's never been explained, has it? A decent back-story on The Adversary would have to go into that as well.

What are your thoughts on The Adversary?
