YMMV: Adam Warlock
- Faux Symbolism:
- It's amazing that Marvel got away with publishing a science fiction faux-Crucifixion in the early 70s.
- The Church of Universal Truth, an evil religious alien organization that Adam battled, is also heavily influenced by the Church - it was largely Author Appeal at the time. Jim Starlin is an atheist/Recovering Catholic and was a very strong opponent of organized religion. Starlin would later concede he was a little anvilicious about it.
- They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Marvel apparently decided they couldn't have two Warlocks (who were completely separate, dissimilar and had never met), so they threw the New Mutants' Warlock under a bus when they brought back Adam. The two would finally meet and team up to fight Ultron in "Annihilation Conquest".
