Who is the New Adam?

#1 Posted by maddpanda (51 posts) - - Show Bio

In the description to Marvel NOW!'s Avengers #3, it says "witness the birth of the New Adam!". Who's this "New Adam"? Who's the "Old Adam"? I'm just wondering if perhaps anyone knows? Maybe Adam Warlock is coming back?

I think it's maybe a reference to Adam from the Bible. The team of villains are called 'The Garden'(like the Garden Of Eden?), and the leader, Ex Nihilo, believes himself to be a god. They plan on destroying everything on Earth, and remaking everything in a way that suits them(which is kinda like god sending the floods to wipe everyone out to start again, the Noahs Ark story).

I think 'The New Adam' must be the first person The Garden creates to live on their new version of Earth.

i think the 'old adam' could be Adam Warlocke, he was artificially created to be the 'perfect' human being. but i dont think theyre bringing him back. i have a feeling this 'new Adam' will be 'born' and by the end of the arc he'll join up with the new Avengers army Cap and IM are putting together. the roster still has 6 spots open, and from the additions you can assume that the last 6 are gonna be pretty powerful. if he is the 'perfect human' then theoretically he should be on par with the likes of Hyperion, Captains Marvel and Universe and Smasher.

I am hoping this could be Marvel version of DC's Captain Comet. 
 
Not just a perfect version of a current human like Captain America or Black Panther. 
 
A Perfect version of what humans could be 100,000 years in the future.  Not a Mutant, but an evolved human.

Well "Adam" told Tony that his name is Blackveil.

His name is "Adam Summers" and he's the new mutant messiah!

I bet it's Adam Warlock! Especially considering how they had Ex Nihilo in the infinity teaser a few weeks ago. And every infinity event has Adam Warlock twisted into the story as much as Thanos is.
