[email protected]$$ Adam Warlock Respect Thread

Here is a very nicely done Adam Warlock Respect Thread I found and would like to share. I would also like to make it clear that I did NOT make this thread, but instead, the credit goes to Thorion, the threadís true creator. All I am really doing here is copying and pasting. The link to the site for the thread is here as well. Enjoy.

ERA 1: HIM
----------------

Him was created by some mad scientists (by Jack Kirby, acutally) to be the first of a new race without faults and without sin. He was too powerful and turned upon his creators. "He's got power without limit. We can't control him." Him creates a molecular wall and all blasts bounce back at the shooter. The energy he radiated was so great that no one could see him without dying. (Fantastic Four #67)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...thorion/him.jpg

He also used his molecular powers to rise tendrils from the ground and entrap humans.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/him1.jpg

His energy build-up was so great, that he destroyed the cave. Even the Human Torch could absorb only a miniature fraction of the energy that was emitted.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/him2.jpg

He wanted to leave for space, so he harnessed some energy and the energy he used for leaving alone destroyed the whole beehive and the scientists.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/him3.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Later, it was revealed that he didn't acutally destroy the beehive, he transported it to another dimension. (Hulk Annual #6)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/dimen.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Some years later, Kirby/Lee had him return in the pages of Thor. He wanted to have Sif as a mate and Thor wasn't too happy about it. First, he grabs Mjolnir and with a wave of his hand, sends Thor and Balder flying. (Thor #165-166)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/vsthor.jpg

Then he creates a solar vortex, grabs Sif and teleports away.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor2.jpg

When Thor faces Him again, Him blasts Thor and onto the ground.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor3.jpg

Then Him releases a potent force blasts that strikes the ground with the force of a hundred earthquakes and once again fells the asgardians.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor4.jpg

Then, Him uses his matter control to cause some roots to attack Balder and restrain him. Thor goes into Warriors Madness and is ready to fight Him.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor5.jpg

Thor in WM throws Mjolnir at Him, but it bounces off of his force field. Then it begins, Him (who is using his power throughout the battle to keep Sif in a force bubble and keep Balder trapped in the roots) vs Thor in WM.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor6.jpg

He decides to drop all blasts and telekinesis and go against the insane Thunder God hand to hand due to honor, he comments how he is stronger than any living being and that his field can protect him from any harm and clashes with Thor as his equal.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor7.jpg

Thor is startled by Him's strength and Him forces Thor down, then Thor punches Him away.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor8.jpg

Then he starts pounding on Him and Him has to create an indestructible cocoon around himself to surive.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsthor9.jpg

So that tells us that gemless Warlock as Him < Thor in Warriors Madness, but not by too much.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just some additional info:
Below it is stated that Warlock is centuries old which would mean his birth in the HIVE was probably just another coccoon rebirth (he's had lots of them).

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...thorion/old.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/old2.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall: Warlock's personal power and strength were a their peak during his Him era, but he didn't have any skill or strategic thinking.

ERA 2: COUNTEREARTH...POWERDOWN...GAINS SOUL GEM WHICH MORE THAN MAKES UP FOR IT

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Him was floating around in his cocoon after his battle with Thor, the High Evolutionary found him and communicated with him. Warlock stayed in the cocoon, so he could come out when he had regained all of the power he had as Him. Man-Beast and his New Men attacked Evolutionary's base and were defeating the HE. Warlock had to jump out of the cocoon and help the cocoon, thus becoming less powerful than he has as Him. He still defeats Man-Beast and his New Men with one attack. (Marvel Premiere #1)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/vsnewm.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soul Gem's abilities on Counter-Earth:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, due to the fact that he had to come out of the cocoon earlier, he is less powerful, but the High Evolutionary grants him the name Warlock and the soul gem which more than makes up for the small power loss.

Here are the basics of the soul gem's power back then:
Recordes asked HE how could Warlock battle a being who is abel to master men's minds. The almost mystic soul gem is an object of great power that gives Warlock the ability to attune himself to matters molecular vibration and cause matter to break down, prevent change from occuring or continuing as when burning fire is extinguished by prevention of oxygen, it's greatest power is ot affect the genes of a being and it works as internal stamina to Warlock.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/power.jpg

As you can see from the explanation, the gem could mostly only affect matter and genes and fire force blasts which means it was VERY different from the later incarnation, but still a powerful trinket.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During his first battle, Warlock used the gem to revert a Hellhound into solar impulses and devolve Rhodan into a mouse.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/revert.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another example of Warlock devolving a New Man with his soul gem.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/devlvve.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock uses his soul gem to reconstruct a giant bridge.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/bridmol.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock uses his soul gem to turn a cane into a snake.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/snake.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock defeats the Brute (a very strong being) by using the gem to turn him back into Reed Richards.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsbrute.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When nothing else worked against a powered up Brute, Warlock used his soul gem to cause intense pain inside his mind, so that proves that although matter manipulation was the gem's main power, it could also release blasts that affect the body (energy/force) and those that affect the mind/soul.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/pain.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock uses his soul gem to shrink a giant demon to the size of a gnat. Some power, eh?

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/power2.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock defeats the Man-Beast with one attack from the soul gem.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsmanbeast.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock's personal abilities on Counter-Earth:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mental Powers on Counter-Earth

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He couldn't fly back then, he used his personal mental powers to levitate, but he had great maneuverability.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/maneuver1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/maneuver2.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

He had mental powers.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/limment1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/limment2.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Durability on Counter-Earth

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

His durability wasn't bad either. Warlock shields Reed Richards from an explosion and is completely unaffected.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/explosion.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../explosion2.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock takes hundreds of deathbird missiles unharmed and unhurt.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...deathbirds1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...deathbirds2.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock could take rockets.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/rockets.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mental resistance on Counter-Earth

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

His mind wasn't as fortified as it is now, not by far, but he still had UBER resistance. Here he resists Man-Beast's hypnotism.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/hypnotic.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below he resists some demons' attempt at controlling him.

Strength on Counter-Earth:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock throws around some giant demons.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/strength.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock defeats Apollo/Triax, one of the more powerful New Men.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/vsapollo4.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/vsapollo5.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Energy Powers on Counter-Earth:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

To tell the truth, on Counter-Earth, he used energy powers much more often than he used the soul gem. Below he blasts his way to the core of the Earth.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/core.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below he summons tremendous amounts of cosmic energy and blasts, melts, fuses and hardens walls and also cuts channels in the earth.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/blast.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Killed and soul gem powered up to the level of next era Warlock:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock was killed and came back with his soul gem powered up and his own abilities the same. To prove this statement, he easily devolves Man-Beast and all of his New Men with one blast. (Incredible Hulk #176-178)

Below Warlock devolves Man-Beast and all of his new men with a single blast.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Man-Beast created illusions of Warlock destroying city blocks/buildings/jets, devolving bullets and parachutes, destroying all the capitals, taking nuclear bombs unscathed and basically almost killing the world. When touched his friends, he realized something was wrong. Then Man-Beast appeared and explained that it was all an illusion, BUT if he had killed his friends, these events WOULD have taken place.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/wworld.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/future.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall: his physical stats and personal power were lower than in his Him years due to leaving the cocoon too early, but he still retained all of his powers and demonstrated them from time to time. His soul gem, however, made up for any power less leaving the cocoon caused and gave him even newer abilities. While he was smarter and more skilled than during his Him years, he was still nothing special in those two areas. At the end of the Counter-Earth era, he died and came back with his own powers the same as they were on Counter-Earth, but his soul gem powered up which would explain the soul gem's new abilities and powers in the next era.

ERA 3: 70S WARLOCK...SOUL GEM POWERED UP

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Starlin took over Warlock in Strange Tales #178 and made him into a different space hero. This era is the first one when he demonstrated his skill and strategic thinking. His physical abilities stayed the same as on Counter-Earth. He rarely if EVER used personal powers, but his soul gem was powered up (see last scan of Counter-Earth era Warlock) and developed many abilities, soul powers, it's own sentience and vampirism.

To make a long story short, the gem was revealed to be a sentient being feeding off the souls that Warlock absorbed. It had the power of soul control and was also stated to be a source of unlimited power since the energies the gem uses, are the energies from the souls in the soul world.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was also explained how he was able to come back from the dead. His will and spirit is SO strong that even Death can't contain it. He had died a dozen times and aways came back for the same reason.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/spirit.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mental resistance in the during 70's Starlin era:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock however is one of the only beings in the universe capable of resisting the gem's control. Here is the gem trying to enslave him

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/mental3.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock resist Star-Thiefs mental persuasion.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/fastlight.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's Warlock overpowering the Church's brainwashing tech. No one possessed the will to do that before.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/mental2.jpg

Overall, I'd like to mention that Warlock has a CLEAN record against telepathy, no one has been able to control him. In the Counter-Earth era, he was fooled by some of Man-Beast's illusions for a little while, but since the powerup of the gem and the strengthening of his own will, even illusions haven't fooled him, so it is safe to say that psionics are useless against Warlock.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Skill/Speed during Starlin 70s era:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The most important step was making Warlock a strategist and a skilled fighter, not as intelligent and skilled as in the next eras, but still very...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just some examples of his skill during the 70s:

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/grand1.jpg

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/skls.jpg

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/sklssss.jpg

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsbrutesss.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock is so fast, skilled and silent that he could take out the all minions on a warship without anyone noticing.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/minions.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/minions1.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Pip was thinking how to get Warlock free of a special harness, but before Pip even finished his sentence.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/harness.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Strength/Intelligence during Starlin 70's era:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

His strength stayed more or less the same as in the Counter-Earth era, so no big feats here, just some random examples.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock lifts a giant rock...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/strong1.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock smashes everything around him...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/smashing.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Star-Thief tested Warlock by creating various opponents. Warlock demonstrated his speed, skill, strength and especially...intelligence in every one of those encounters, one of the tests, were souless demons that the gem could not affect, here's Warlock's physical strength.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/demons2.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another test was against Star-Thief's stone giants who were physically much more powerful than Warlock. Warlock uses skill and speed to escape them and smashes them from behind.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/sttone.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/stone1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/stone2.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another test was against a firegiant who had the power of a dozen suns. Warlock again, uses his strength and intelligence to smash the giant's weak spot.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../firegiant1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../firegiant2.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/knowledge.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All of the tests above were using his speed and skill to evade his opponent, then use intelligence to detect his weakness and use strength to defeat them. In this one, Warlock tries using his strength and actually smashes a giant shark away, but it doesn't even hurt it, so he resorts to intelligence...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsshark1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsshark2.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As for everything else relating to intelligence, well.... when he absorbed a soul, he also absorbed his knowledge, for instance, he had Autolycus' navigational skills and Magus' dark knowledge and used them to find space warps.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/knowledge.jpg

Then there's of course, the Magus saga finale where Warlock and Thanos together think of a way to get rid of the Magus, but that's in the soul gem category...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's Warlock flying through a black hole unharmed and unhurt.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/blackhole.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's Warlock taking a nova intensity explosion and then falling into the moon while ablaze from outer space and surviving it.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/nova2.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Misc abilities during STarlin 70's era:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock didn't levitate enymore, he coul outright fly multiple times the speed of light using his personal power.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/fastlight.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soul gem's powers during 70's Starlin era:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's most dreaded ability was to steal souls. Automatic win for Warlock. Can't be resisted. He did it many times to Magus' minions, but here's Warlock, with one attack, absorbing the souls of the Magus' WHOLE death squad that Thanos admitted he would lose to.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/souls.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock could temporarily resurrect beings using his gem.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/life.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock lobotomizes some palace guards.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...thorion/lob.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock uses his soul gem to either translate or learn lots of alien languages.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/lang.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock tries something he had never attempted before... he sends out an explatory beam of force to seek out the source of the star disappearances and finds that the source is a mortal man on earth.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/starth.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock and the Gardener defeat the Stranger with their soul gems.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsstranger.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock encases a spaceship in a force field and teleports it (might have been his own power channeled through the gem, we don't know).

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...teleporting.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below is an example of Warlock's molecular manipulation powers and force fields (might have been his own power channeled through the gem, uknown)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/molecular.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock kills the the High Evolutionary (in the same state the HE fought Gakactus in) with one blast.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vshighevol.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock acutally manages to absorb a portion of Star-Thief's soul which throws away the theory that soul rip can't affect uber cosmics. IT CAN.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/thiefsoul.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is just classic... Magus saga finale... Warlock destroys a freakin' universe, blasts his Kismet trail, travels into the future, takes his own soul and erases Magus and his reign from existence.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/timeline1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/timeline2.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/timeline3.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/timeline4.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/timeline5.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And it also should be mentioned that Warlock exists outside the realm of Chaos and Order due to the fact that he destroyed his own future (that's why Nebula with IG couldn't see him). He isn't manipulated by destiny. He is the universe's wild card.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/fate.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock's death:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock was mortally wounded by Thanos and then another Warlock came from the past and took his soul into the soul world (basically as you just saw above).

Warlock came back from the soul world in soul form (no gem, no physical body) for just one thing, to defeat Thanos, Warlock turns Pre-Resurrection Thanos to stone (just look at Thanos' expression... I don't think anyone else has had that effect on him).

Warlock's soul turns Thanos to stone.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/stone.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/vsthan.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall: Well, as I said in the beginning, his personal strength and power (though he never used his own energy blasts and mental powers in this era) stayed the same as on Counter-Earth, but the gem became much more powerful as of the last scan in the Counter-Earth section. Warlock became much more intelligent, skilled and faster. The most powerful version SO FAR (not counting next eras in the thread) and while he gets even more powerful as you look through this thread, this version of Warlock will ALWAYS be my favorite...

ERA 4: REBORN...BACK FROM THE SOUL GEM IN STRONGER BODY...INFINITY GAUNTLET

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drax and Silver Surfer were absorbed into the soul gem by Thanos. There they met Warlock. It was revealed that Warlock was the master of the realm. He wa connected to every living thing there, he retained his physical powers there and his soul powers were at their height there (he also could change his costume with a thought when in the soul world).

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/linked.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drax (dumb) was wrecing havoc there and Warlock confronted Drax the Destroyer.

Warlock dodges Drax's blow and punches him. Then Drax knocks Warlock's staff away.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr1.jpg

Then Drax smashes Warlock and Walrock falls down... seemingly...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr2.jpg

Drax lands and expects to see Warlock, but Warlock is nowhere to be found. Drax throws away Warlock's staff, Warlock catches it, charges it up with energy and bats Drx with it...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr3.jpg

Drax gets angry and charges at Warlock, Warlock disappears somewhere and Drax smashes into a rock...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr4.jpg

Drax just can't find Warlock... and Warlock smashes Drax into a rock again by smashing his head with an energy charged up staff...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr5.jpg

Drax gets even madder and attacks Warlock, Warlock dodges and kicks Drax in his stomach, Drax charges again, but Warlock traps him in his cape...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr6.jpg

Drax, again can't find Warlock. Warlock jumps at Drax from behind...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr7.jpg

Warlock suffocates Drax and defeats...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr8.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsdestr9.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/vsdestr10.jpg

Even Surfer admits that he didn't think defeating the Destroyer was possible...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/vsdestr11.jpg



This battle clearly showcases Warlock's great speed and skill as Drax gets only one hit in as Warlock gets much more and defeats the brute without his gem. As you can see, Warlock's no slouch in the strength department either.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Even without the soul gem, Warlock has uber control over the soul world and could cast a *spell* through which he freed Drax and Surfer from the Infinity Gauntlet into their own bodies.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/soulworld.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Even without his soul gem, Warlock had vast soul powers, Warlock's soul contacted and brought Strange to the astral plane/soul/spirit plane and opened his soul and his plans to him.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/opensoul1.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock uses his soul powers to release Pip's, Gamora's and his own soul from the Infinity Gauntlet, resurrects the bodies of three humans, uses his matter manipulation to morph them and enhance them, making Class 10 bodies for Pip and Gamora and for himself, a more powerful body that he possessed earlier.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...horion/heal.jpg

Here is da next powerup, while his soul powers and soul gem remained at the same level as in the previous era, his physical strength and durability, possibly speed were upgraded as he made the new body for himself. This Warlock also demonstrates even greater skill and intelligence than in the previous eras.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Galactus got angry, he blasted Warlock and thought him destroyed. No such luck, G.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...vsgalactus1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...vsgalactus2.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Doom's robots defeated Strange and Doom defeated Surfer, Doom and his robots were ready to kill Strange if he didn't tell them everything. Then Warlock busts in, destroying the bots and saving Strange.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/shreds.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is my favorite IG scene, Nebula with Infinity Gauntlet has everyone defeated. Warlock enters the soul world, uses Surfer as an anchor, then he uses his powers within the soul world to reach out to the other gems on the gauntlet and knocks the gauntlet away from omnipotent Nebula and becomes GOD!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It also should be mention that it was Warlock who planned everything against Thanos and Nebula and became God, so he sure got to show off his strategic thinking.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall: He actually didn't wear the soul gem during Infinity Gauntlet, but he had a connection to it and used soul powers... he was portrayed as much more intelligent and skilled, plus he made a new body for himself that was srtonger than the previous.

ERA 5: WARLOCK AND THE INFINITY WATCH

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Soon after the Infinity Gauntlet affair, the Infinity Watch was formed, Warlock entrusted gems to Thanos, Pip, Drax, Gamora, Moondragon and himself, Maxam was also a temporariy unofficial member.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Infinity War:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock defeats Archangel and some other X-type and defeats Wonder Man without using his gem (though, Wonder Man was weakened at the time). Showcases his speed, skill and strength against stronger opponents.

Warlock vs Magus with the Infinity Gauntlet (fake reality gem on the gauntlet though). They battle rages throughout the cosmos and Warlock is victorious.

Warlock is one of the only beings capable of retaining his free will while wearing the gem.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/strongsp.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The gem alone was capable of owning Darklore and all of his spells and ready to enslave him, then Warlock appeared and took the gem....

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock survives travelling through a reality disruption rift that might've eaten up the universe in time. He saves Thanos from the rift and closes it with his soul gem which implies that the gem can affect the time-space continuum.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock just wishes his soul gem back from Thanos (much as Thanos may not have liked it).

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/thgem.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

During the final battle against the Goddess, it was Warlock who planned everything, everyone else (inlcuding Thanos and Surfer) were following his orders and even the Mad Titan was unsure what happened. Warlock went into the Goddess' mind/soul and manipulated her and caused an illusion of the end of the universe to appear, thus foiling her plans.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...n/vsgoddess.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock can appear in a form of a pure soul and attack physical opponents, but they cannot affect him.

Warlock defeats Quasar.

Skill.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For a major skill example in this era, look above, for Magus and Wonder Man fights.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other examples include:

Olik

Warlock displays skill, strength and speed battling Olik, the older brother of Ulik and when Pip has enough time, Warlock casually defeats him with a blast from the soul gem.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsolik1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/vsolik2.jpg

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsolik11.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nobilus

Warlock defeats Nobilus (Class 100) and his New Men without using his gem. Again, showcases his skill, speed and strength against stronger opponents.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsnobilus1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsnobilus2.jpg

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock knows nerve points and martial arts stuff like that.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/skills.jpg

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock vs Triax with armor. Again a great showing of Warlock's speed, skill and strength.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock takes out almost all minions the Man-Beast's ship.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...thorion/min.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dealing with the souless

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock takes on Strange, a powerful construct that just defeated the Watch and took their gems and was using them. Warlock shows him the folly of his ways.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsstrange1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsstrange2.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsstrange3.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../vsstrange4.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock defeats Count Abyss, an almost omnipotent being who just punked the Infinity Watch and Darklore. (Abyss is souless)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsabyss1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsabyss2.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsabyss3.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsabyss4.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vsabyss5.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Warlock punched Count Abyss, he staggered him and the blow was said to be able to shatter planets and shake stars.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...orion/force.jpg

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Count Abyss' demons attacked Warlock, he could not affect them becaus they had no soul. Then Warlock uses the soul gem's cold light of truth on them and destroys them which proves that Warlock can find a way to deal even with souless beings.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/souless.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VS Mephisto in his own domain

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mephisto turned Warlock to stone and easily defeated Surfer and the Infinity Watch. They are trapped, due to his spell, but Warlock overcomes it and busts out.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...surrection1.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...surrection2.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...surrection4.jpg

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock vs Mephisto. Mephisto tries everything, trickery, brute strength, raw power, using his dimension against Warlock and Warlock still SOUNDLY (by Mephisto's own words) defeats him.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock has one big low showing: Blood and Thunder. There, he and the Infinity Watch were ambushed and defeated by a group of trolls and then defeated by Thor.

Though, even in his worst storyline, Warlock was able to show off a little. For instance, he defeated Olik easily. When he fought Thor, Thor got the better of him, but Warlock wanted only to cure him, not to hurt him and still fared better than the likes of Surfer and Warlock had to save Surfer.

So, here's Warlock smacking an insane charging Thor around a little with his skill.

Warlock vs the Infinity Thrall, an UBER powerful energy being who was created by harnessing the energies of four Infinity Gems. Warlock takes his blasts and tries to fight back, but understands that he's out of his league and defeats the Thrall using intelligence. "Checkmate."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a big one. Rune aquires 5 Infinity Gems and uses the time gem to stop time. The world is stopped in time, but when he tries to attack Warlock, Warlock is able to fight back which would mean that time manipulation doesn't have much effect on Warlock. Then Warlock drags Rune (with 5 Infinity gems) into the soul world and battles out. Some stunt, eh? He stalemates Rune until his own soul gem betrays him.

Warlock can control Surfer's board (because they were soul-linked during Infinity Gauntlet).

When Thor destroyed Warlock's karmic staff, Warlock just recreated it and explained that it was the extention of his soul.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/remake.jpg

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall: This was during Warlock's 42-issue ongoing series, this was also when Warlock was most popular and many of the bigger feats happened during this era.

ERA 6: ULTRAVERSE

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When his gem was stole, Warlock travelled to the Ultraverse to find it. There, he developed his own soul powers.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was revealed that being without the gem lowers his physical stats and that he also usually uses the gem's energy to replenish his own to not get tired. It was explained that it was the reason Rune was able to defeat Warlock, but when Rune tried to suck his spirit our, he failed... Warlock: "I am master of my own soul and you shall not have it."

ERA 7: BACK FROM THE ULTRAVERSE

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When he came back from the Ultraverse, he had his gem back, no official powerup or powerdown, but he seemed physically stronger than usual.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Overall: While Warlock *seemed* stronger than usual during the Lyle mini, he didn't show skills or intelligence on the level he used to for some reason. This mini by Lyle was disappointing and certainly not one of my favorite Warlock versions.

ERA 8: RECENT YEARS

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Not long ago, Starlin brought him back and used him in Infinity Abyss, The End (might and might not be continuity) and Thanos series. With a cool new costume, too.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

VS Thanos clones:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When Warlock was awakened, he busts out of his coccoon with energy swirling around him and he ain't happy... Thanos (a clone) orders Pip and Moondragon to leave so they wouldn't get hurt because of Warlock's energy emission... (I included this pic because it was a prelude to the next thing and was just an uber cool pic)

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/energies.jpg

Moondragon and Pip leave, Thanos (a clone rivalling the original in power) grabs Warlock, but Warlock justs blasts him aside with energy...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...on/vscllone.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock vs 2 Thanos clones who rival the original in power: Warrior and Mystic. Warlock's soul gem easily countered Mystic's magic and his skill and speed yanked around Warrior (a Thanos clone multiple times stronger than the original). Then they started to overwhelm him, but Dr. Strange came and took on Mystic. From there one, Warlock vs Warrior. Warlock endures a SAVAGE beating at the hands of the Thanos clone who is many times stronger than the original, stands up and defeats him by stealing his soul and comments that he could do just as much to the original.

When Thanos had the soul gem, Warlock came back from fighting the Goddess. He just wished his soul gem back to himself and Thanos wasn't too happy about it. Then Warlock said that he would use it even against an ally...

Warlock vs Thanos verbal confrontation 1: some great stuff here... tell me who else can do that to Thanos? Who else can render him speechless and put such a look upon Thanos' face?

Warlock vs Thanos verbal confrontation 2: not as good by far, but Thanos still doesn't know what to say about Warlock's accusations...

Thanos' clone grabs Warlock and just the energy surge through Warlock's body knocks him backwards.

Warlock vs Thanos' clones (that rival the original in power). Warlock uses his soul gem and skills to fight off Warrior and Mystic at the same time. Then Warrior smashes him (a being multiple times stronger than Thanos) and pounds on him. Warlock just gets up and steals Warrior's soul saying he could do just as much to the real deal.

Thanos' clones sure ain't Thanos, but I still put them there because they fit into this category. Anyway, that's it. Warlock knows Thanos inside out and I don't think any other hero has a better chance of defeating the Mad Titan than Warlock.

2.WARLOCK'S DISAPPEARING ACTS

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here are some of his neat ninja tricks he's pulled (most you have seen above, some you haven't, anyway, here they are collected).

How does he do these?

An enemy smashes him, seemingly, Warlock just comes back from above or behind and smashes his enemy.

3 WHO CAN THE GEM AFFECT?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, if someone asks this question, then he has to specify, which ability of the soul gem?

Overall, the soul gem can affect EVERYONE... no exceptions... It has affected uber cosmics (Star-Thief), gods and demon-types (Count Abyss, Mephisto), souless beings (Strange, Abyss' de,ons).

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A: Souless beings... now, this is Warlock's weakness, his gem controls the soul, but i can't control souless beings... most abilities don't work on souless beings, HOWEVER, there are alaways SOME that do...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When souless demons from another dimension attacked Warlock, he couldn't fo jack against them, then he pitched the right ability of the soul gem - the cold light of truth and affected them...

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...ion/souless.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock vs souless Count Abyss. In theory, Warlock couldn't do anything to him since Abyss doesn't have a soul. What does Warlock do? He takes a soul and puts it into Count Abyss. Which again proves that Warlock finds a way to affect souless beings with his soul gem.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock vs Strange the android, sure he's souless, but can Warlock affect him with his gem... even somehow? Yes.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It affected Death's minion who should by all means, be souless.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...rion/deaths.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

B: Thor incident. This is a frequent debate. Some people think that since Thor resisted the karmic blast, the soul gem has no effect on him. WRONG. The karmic blast just overpowers your anima centers, it's basically a stun gun that takes out immediately witohut hurting much, so that your opponent won't get harmed. There is NO reason why Thor should be able to resist any other power of the soul gem since the powers have affected gods, omnipotent types and much more powerful beings. It was also stated that Thor could do it because he was a god in the comic and that he could do it because he had not one will, but two (also the Valkyrie's) resisting it. Anyway, Blood and Thunder was a bad storyline and the ONLY low lever showing of Adam Warlock.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's the soul gem affecting asgardians.

http://img51.photobucket.com/albums.../asgardians.jpg
http://img51.photobucket.com/albums...asgardians2.jpg

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For examples of the karmic blast affecting, Quasar, Maxam and souless beings and the gem affecting the likes of Mephiso, Magus, Thanos and Count Abyss, see above in the thread.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The gem has multiple times affected Quasar and Warlock managed to take him to the psychic plane and punk him there. And that's Quasar, protector of the universe, wielder of the quantum bands that supposedly make him invulnerable to such attacks.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

C: Soul rip. No one has ever been shown as invulnerable to it. Walrock has absorbed souls of regular minions, cyborgs, Magus, Goddess etc.

Even Star-Thief a being who could snuff out all of the stars in the cosmis easily...

4 INTELLIGENCE

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Warlock is a master strategist, plannet and manipulator who is willing to do whatever it takes to achieve something (hey, this is the guy who sacrificed all of Earth's heroes as a distraction so he could put his own plan into motion, this is the same guy who sent out the New Men and watched them get slaughtered by cyborgs because he wanted to see what the cyborgs were capable of.

He is crafty and cunning. He won't fight like his opponent wants him to. He always thinks ahead, is always calm and ready for any kind of situation.

While I believe that Thanos' IQ is higher due to his scientific knowledge, Warlock is AT LEAST the equal of the Mad Titan in planning in tactics. When he faces an omnipotent opponent, he uses hit and run and finally outsmarts his opponent, he can come up with a strategy on the spot.

Warlock...

along with Thanos figured out how to beat Magus (Thanos did most of the thinking, though) during the Magus saga

figured out the Magus' plan and created a counter plan along with Thanos during Infinity War (Warlock did most of the thinking, though)

figured out the Goddess' plans and created a counter plan alone

planned all the attacks on Nebula

planned all the attacks on Thanos with IG

The list goes on and on...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Below, Warlock destroys a group of cyborgs by just talking to them...

Warlock uses his vast intellect to destroy the cyborgs that slaughtered the New Men. He exploits their weaknesses to their fullest using just talk.

All right, that's all of them.

I would like to remind people that all credit goes to Thorion. After all the work that was put into this, I feel that the guy deserves his recognition.
