The last time we saw the cosmic adventurer Adam Warlock, he was nestled in his pocket dimension along with Gamora wherein they were tending to the fledgling cosmic anchor, Atleza; and Adam was finally reciprocating the feelings Gamora had been offering him for decades.
Recently, we find Gamora in the Annihilation series locking horns with Ronan, defending worlds from the Annihilation Wave, as well as in Rich Rider's [Nova's] bed.
This month in The New Avengers : Illuminati, it appears that Reed Richards has collected the six Infinity Gems and reformed the Infinity Gauntlet... WITH THE SOUL GEM. The last we saw of the Soul Gem it was still securely adorning Adam Warlock's forehead!
So I ask you, the collected minds of ComicVine... where the FRAG is Adam Warlock??? He should've been tapped for the Annihilation shindig, at least one story of him and Gamora covorting gaily should've been published, and how did that punk Richards steal his gem [granted, I have yet to read issue #2 of Illuminati, so I don't know if they explain his current whereabouts-how Richards got the Soul Gem. etc] in the first place??
Where's Jim Starlin when you need him?
