    Where is the Adam Warlock thing coming from? Also, suddenly a lot of random cosmic Marvel fans. :funny:

    He's a part of the Guardians in the comics, and its pretty appaernt he isn't a factor in this movie. He can easily be introduced later.

    Adam Warlock has always been a major player in cosmic Marvel events. He was featured prominently in Starlin's old stuff, and was one of the main characters in Infinity Gauntlet, second only to Thanos in focus. Same goes for its disappointing sequels Infinity War and Infinity Crusade. In modern times, he came back up in Annihilation: Conquest and joined the Guardians of the Galaxy shortly after.

    Also he just don't give a **** regarding stopping whatever villain he's tasked to stop. He's a good guy but eerily laser focused.

    Ok apart from Annihilation and the DnA run on GOTGmcan somebody give me the list of crucial comics that will educate my mind about the Cosmic side of Marvel. I'm tired of seeing you guys discuss things and I can't even chip in because I know nothing and I just end up asking more questions (which could annoy some users). So please, help would be very much appreciated.

    He's an artificial human, that's all I'll give you. The rest has to be read to really grasp it.

    All I know is that cocoon is sitting in Tivan's collection in the movie. You have to think we're getting Warlock, more than likely in the credits.

    Honestly, GotG, Nova, and the Thanos books (Thanos and Imperative) are the essentials. That is all you really need to read. With the two Annihilations, just read the main series.

    Classic Fantastic Four
    Starlin's run on Silver Surfer
    The Thanos Quest
    Infinity Gauntlet (also Infinity War and Crusade but they're not very good)
    The End

    That, plus the chart Darth posted, is basically the bulk of cosmic Marvel. It may seem like a lot, but trust me, it's worth getting into this part of the universe.

    So, It's looking like about 9-10 fresh reviews on rotten tomatoes from tweets, and one negative from a guy at variety.

    Fresh
    Drew Mcweeny-Hitflix
    Oliver Lyttleton-Playlist
    Robbie Collin-Daily Telegraph
    Devin Faraci-Badass Digest
    Amon Warman-HeyUGuys
    Dan Jolin-Empire Magazine
    Steven Weintraub-Collider
    William Bibbiani-CraveOnline
    Jim Vejvoda-Ign
    Eric Eisenberg-CinemaBlend

    Negative
    Variety Magazine

    A good start!! Tomorrow will be fun.

    Adam Warlok created a Counter Earth during the Mar-Vell era. BOTH Mar-Vell and Adam were Thanos' Nemesis'. (by the way, Counter Earth was home to the Squadron Supreme basically Marvel's JLA)

    EDIT: there was a cocoon in the Collectors museum at the end of Thor Dark World

    THIS is what makes Adam different. He gets reborn and arises when there's Cosmic level trouble

    I think Infinity Gauntlet, Annihilation Conquest, the DnA Guardians run and Thanos Imperative are the most important ones to read.

    Just got out of my screening. Tons of fun. The crowd really got into all the humorous parts and seemed to be enjoying it. Visuals are great and the movie felt like it was over too soon. Mainly because I wanted more! But the pacing and length was perfect. Hopefully it booms when finally released wide.
