The first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy 3 left the first image of Adam Warlock, who will be the antagonist of this story. This character is played by Will Poulter. This is one of the most anticipated villains in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, considering that his addition was announced a long time ago.
Guardians of the Galaxy 3 It will be the last installment of this franchise, at least as it has been known until now. It will also be the last production that James Gunn direct within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That is why much of what was presented in the trailer evokes a nostalgic air, at the end of different stories. Among so many, Adam Warlock’s may be opened so that he can participate in other stories.
Adam Warlock is not a common villain within the Marvel narrative. It is a human being created artificially, with the aim of creating the perfect being. The development of it occurred in the scientific complex “The Beehive”. His story is marked by having grown in a cocoon and coming out of it when he discovered the intentions of his creators, rebelling against that idea of perfection. It may be that this origin story is adapted in Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
In the meantime, What are Adam Warlock’s abilities?
Adam Warlock’s powers,
the villain of Guardians of the Galaxy 3
Within the Marvel comics, Adam Warlock is presented as a being who lacked more maternal and paternal care. Not having these figures, he grew up without being able to recognize different issues, without having a clear sense of responsibility or moderation. This, over time, led him to face characters like Thor and even The Fantastic 4.
Due to his abilities, Adam Warlock could deal with these types of figures. Among his main powers, the following stand out:
- Superhuman strength, speed, stamina, agility, and reflexes.
- Ability to sustain prolonged combat. This is influenced by the fact that it has cell regeneration, ultrasensitive senses and, as if that were not enough, immortality.
- Within his mental abilities, there is telepathy, clairvoyance and cosmic consciousness.
It is about a being that could be seen as a kind of god, although its origin was marked by a more human purpose. In addition to the previous skills, the following are added:
- Energy manipulation.
- Ability to travel in time.
- Magical abilities, to cast spells.
- Quantum magic.
- Infinite energy, without the need for food or water.
A challenge for the guardians
These abilities and powers serve to emphasize the idea of its origin, aimed at creating a perfect being, that did not need food, for example, and could move through space at will. For the Guardians of the Galaxy it could represent the most powerful threat they have ever faced, since it does not seem to have any weaknesses.
So far, it is unknown what Adam Warlock’s journey could be within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 It is anticipated as the closure of that franchise, which could be recognized as one of the most beloved. Not only for its box office success, but also for being differential in terms of tone within the narrative.
It should be remembered that, during Phase 5 and Phase 6 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the main villain will be Kang the Conqueror. This character will be featured in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. Guardians of the Galaxy 3 It will be released on May 5, 2023.
