Agent Coulson[src]


Adam Roderick was a Nuhuman whose powers were activated by the Terrigen Mist cloud. Adam was allegedly kidnapped by the I.D.I.C., a splinter group from A.I.M, who claimed responsibility with a video delivered directly to S.H.I.E.L.D. via a proxy server.

Due to complications regarding the legal status of Inhumans, S.H.I.E.L.D. hired Magister Karnak to recover the boy, and Karnak promptly and violently interrogated a mole within S.H.I.E.L.D.'s own ranks to learn I.D.I.C. were holed up in a safehouse in Berlin, Germany.[1]

When next seen, Adam was accompanied by I.D.I.C. priests at their headquarters, the Chapel of the Single Shadow, in Transia. There Adam revealed to Karnak that he was never abducted by the terrorist cell, rather they convinced him to go along to discover his true self, including finding out that whatever he said and/or thought would become reality, such as the massive single eye within the premises of the complex.

Adam wished Karnak to tell his family that he loved them and missed them, but had no intention of coming home for the foreseeable future, due to their never really encouraging him to be more than what he was. When the Magister tried to apprehend him by force, one of his altered body guards stood in to defend him. Adam took note of how Karnak's abilities worked, realizing they lacked effectiveness if he could not adequately see his targets. Roderick then bade him a final farewell, before warping away to parts unknown, greatly irking the agitated hermit.[2]
