YMMV: Adam Warlock
  • Faux Symbolism: It's amazing how Marvel got away with publishing a Science Fiction version of The Crucifixion in one of their comics.
    • The Church of Universal Truth, an evil religious alien organization that Adam battled, also has Christian trappings.
      • A lot of this was Author Appeal at the time. Jim Starlin is an atheist and was a very strong opponent of organized religion. This would also explain the second sequel to The Infinity Gauntlet called The Infinity Crusade, which had very strong religious overtones that were specifically handled in a negative way. Starlin would later admit he was a little anvilicious in his earlier stories.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Bringing back this relic meant the more interesting Warlock from X-men had to die, because two characters can't have the same name.
  • Unfortunate Implications: Apparently "Him" was supposed to look "perfect" which is why he looks like a blonde, golden-skinned man.
