Quotes by Adam Warlock (Earth-616)

Quote1.png Of course, I should have realized... those Creatures were my own inner Demons... and the Magus... Magus is Latin for Wise Man... Magician... Warlock!! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I knew I had lost! I was about to die! It must have been that certainty of Death, this total surrendering to Fate that triggered what happened next! My Soul Gem suddenly came to life of its own volition! I could feel it surge to awareness, free of the Subconscious control I must have had over it all those Months! For the first Time, I felt that Gem's naked, evil Lust flow through me! I stood horrified as the Gem sprang to full life and its Beam flashed forth to engulf Autolycus! My Mind exploded at that Moment! Image upon Sensation upon Thought cascaded into my pitiful Brain! But these were not the random Hallucinations of Madness! No! No! No! This was Autolycus! This was his entire Life passing into my Mind's Eye! Before me lay his every Thought, Deed, Experience and Emotion! I then mercifully passed out! When Consciousness returned, a chill like Death lay upon me, for all was now clear - as clear as Autolycus's Body which sprawled before me no longer alive but neither truly dead! It's said that the Eyes are the Portals to the Soul! I gazed into Autolycus's unseeing Eyes. No Fear, Surprise, Anger, or any Emotion rested within them! Those Eyes will always haunt me, for within them lay nothing! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Few people do understand that word, my Friend. For some men, revolution means violence - for others, a quiet change in the social order. Unfortunately... violent men must be dealt with violently... Thus, our weapons. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I order no one Hulk! For my friendship and help, both freely given, must be freely accepted! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png There has to be some Way to remove the Soul Gem, Mentor! I've grown weary of its vampiric Legacy. Its Thirst for Souls becomes harder to control with each passing Day. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Emotions seem only to confuse my thinking processes. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png But I do know... far better than you, Gentlemen. And, if you would know what I know... You have but to look into my eyes! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I am about to -- be born! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I am HIM... not born of man and woman! I was created to be invincible! And those who made me... made me well! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You reached for godhood, Warthog--yet, divinity is not built on sham--nor murder! You are but a creature of the mud--grasping to be what you are not! I am Warlock--and thus the violence you engendered shall be returned to you--fourfold! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png This is wrong. He died fighting my battle. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Never! While I stand I defy your might, and shall ever match it with my own power! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png He who acts with violence takes the side of those who oppose me! If anyone dares commit such acts in my behalf - I shall see he wishes he were never born! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png When my followers' cries wrench my very soul, how can I not but heed them? Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png It's the... Soul Gem... it fights me... it's trying to... break free from my control... again! I can feel it... it wants to suck in... the Souls... of these fallen Knights... just like it did... to Autolycus... I can't allow this... to happen... not again! I did it! I've got it under control again! But it was so... so hard! I feared it might come to this! The Soul Gem is steadily growing stronger and shedding the Subconscious control I've had over it the last three Years! It seeks to be free to satisfy its unholy Hunger for fresh Souls to suck them out of living Beings! I wear a Fiend upon my Forehead... a Monster I now realize... I must destroy! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png These are Events I have experienced, yet which never happened. Such a Concept is truly maddening! Am I a Madman, Killer and Soul Thief? Or am I yet the simple Fool I was mere Days ago? Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You are known in the far corners of the Galaxy, Stranger, as a power to be feared! But I fear you not! Quote2.png

Quote1.png Is there nothing I can say to discourage you from this mad plan? Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png So, mage, you have elected to stop speaking about me, and begin speaking to me. In that case, I shall let natural law hold sway again -- so that centrifugal force may carry the planets -- back to their boring orbits and equally boring sun. Now... shall we talk? Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)

Quote1.png Let the Stars know you to be the Infinity Watch! Quote2.png

Quote1.png But the Memories of Omnipotence fade with the Experience. My descent from Divinity back to this mortal Coil has cost me dearly. I am like one newly released from the Womb. A confused Stranger in an incomprehensible Land. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)

Quote1.png I am now in contact with the Infinity Gauntlet! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)

--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Adam Warlock is not one to be held in check by mere Hellfire Ash! Quote2.png

Quote1.png Snap out of it Norrin Radd! You are being used by Mephisto! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png When I was this reality's supreme being, I chose to rule through pure logic. To do this, I expelled all good and evil from my soul. Regrettably this move did not keep me from losing my claim on godhood and returning to the flesh. Worse still, this dual exorcism proved a curse to the universe in general. So much for omnipotence and infallibility. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Have you so soon forgotten our last encounter, Mephisto? Do you not recall your agonizing fate when before you challenged my Soul Gem? Remember too that contest took place within your precious Hades where you once thought yourself supreme! Defy me now and your very existence stands in peril! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)

--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png And I am golden, not bronze. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png You use a sledge where a key would be best applied. Thor's sanity is locked away. You must free his psyche, not contend with the insanity that envelops it. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png If we cure Thor, both he and Asgard will be eternally grateful. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png See now, dear Delegates, the Power of Adam Warlock alone. I and my Infinity Watch have chosen Earth as our Home. Given the Chance we will prove to be good Neighbours. But continue to harass us and we shall turn unfriendly - perhaps even hostile. Trust me, you wouldn't like seeing us like that. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Behold the Stronghold of Count Abyss! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Even if I were not a Man of my Word, even if I were inclined to break my Alliance with the Mole Man, do you think I could ever trust a Man who seizes Power so unscrupulously as you? Do you take for a Fool? Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png I do not know, Strange. But I promise you... there will come a Time when I will ask your Creator that very Question. Quote2.png

Quote1.png We have shared souls, Surfer. I know you. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Ah, Death...once again, your embrace proves fleeting. How I long for the days when your named implied permanence -- a concept I fear now lacking all meaning. Very well. However reluctantly -- Adam Warlock lives again! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Though I was no longer the slave of a vampiric Soul Gem, I remembered those days all too well and to look upon this Prince of Void was to see what I might have become, had I surrendered to the Gem's corruption. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Darker motives spur on the titan. For him, rebuilding his resources is of paramount importance. When my mind was linked with his I felt just how close Thanos is to gaining that new secret prize he craves. So the hunt resumes, and ebon passions burn. Yes, I believe the Titan will soon unearth his latest substitute for happiness and contentment. And once again he will find it unfulfilling and wanting. On that day, let the universe tremble. For then someone will surely have to pay for that bitter disappointment. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Sometimes trying too hard is the problem. Sometimes surrendering is the only path to victory. Quote2.png

--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png And that's the truth about the end of Arthur Douglas, the beginning of Drax the Destroyer and then the rebirth of Arthur Douglas. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Everyone that has ever been in my position to wield infinite power has been undone by their choices. Perhaps I should not decide the outcome... maybe they should. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png So the Shi'ar have a new ruler, a strong figurehead to lead them into this dangerous new age. If they could only see what I can see. If they could only see half of the horror that the Fault will bring to their universe. I pity the Shi'ar! They have spent so long agonizing about who will rule...when we all know the Magus will rule in the end! Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)
Quote1.png Don't apologize. Remember, we still hold one supreme advantage over them. They think I'm dead. And while they believe that, they will be absolutely unprepared for what I am about to unleash. Quote2.png
--Adam Warlock (Earth-616)

I can feel it... it wants to suck in... the Souls... of these fallen Knights... just like it did... to Autolycus... I can't allow this... to happen... not again! I did it! I've got it under control again! But it was so... so hard! I feared it might come to this! The Soul Gem is steadily growing stronger and shedding the Subconscious control I've had over it the last three Years! It seeks to be free to satisfy its unholy Hunger for fresh Souls to suck them out of living Beings! I wear a Fiend upon my Forehead... a Monster I now realize... I must destroy! Quote2.png
