* FauxSymbolism:
** 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 AuthorAppeal 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.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Marvel apparently decided [[OneSteveLimit they couldn't have two Warlocks (who were completely separate, dissimilar and had never met)]], so they threw the Comicbook/NewMutants' Warlock under a bus when they brought back Adam. the two would finally meet and team up to fight Ultron in "Anihilation Conquest".
