Marvel Two-In-One No. 63 Suffer Not A Warlock To Live
Here's a great shot of the High Evolutionary livid at the theft of his greatest creation.
Finally we are shown just how a planet is stolen.
At this point, Starhawk changes back to the male half.
Our heroes break into the planet stealer ship and these thieves are gigantic. I love what happens next.
Increasing stature is NOT an issue with th High Evolutionary. I love it. The Thing is my favorite Marvel hero (together with
the Beast) but Ben looks like an action figure in the panel above.
The tale gets better when the High Evolutionary finds out that these thieves, who call themselves the Prime Movers of Tarkus, were hired by somebody else. So the High Evolutionary asks who "hired" these Movers.
The Beyonders! In a still more fascinating twist.
It seems that Counter-Earth is not the mirror planet that we thought it was. The fake Earth doesn't have the quality of the real McCoy. Therefore . . .
Now only one issue remains: Adam Warlock.
And the dead is brought back to life.
The soul of Adam Warlock resides in the Soul Gem currently on the forehead of the Elder of the Universe known as the Gardener.
Adam isn't missing out on a hot babe though because, if I remember correctly, he's got Gamora in the Soul Gem with him. It's Her that's missing out, and in the end, this extremely powerful and unique being simply flies off to space.
So this story arc becomes the jumping off point for two other possible stories in the Marvel universe. First the meeting of the High Evolutionary and the Beyonders and final fate of Counter-Earth. Second, the further adventures of Her (including a less confusing name I hope).
