Marvel Premiere Vol 1 2
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
Warlock Vol 1 4

Warlock Vol 1 7
Quote1.png When my followers' cries wrench my very soul, how can I not but heed them? Quote2.png
Warlock Vol 1 8
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
Incredible Hulk Vol 1 177
Quote1.png I order no one Hulk! For my friendship and help, both freely given, must be freely accepted! Quote2.png
Incredible Hulk Vol 1 178
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
Strange Tales Vol 1 178
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
Strange Tales Vol 1 179
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
Strange Tales Vol 1 180
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
Warlock Vol 1 12
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

Silver Surfer Vol 3 47
Quote1.png Looks like there's a new supreme being in the neighborhood. And he will deal with all matters in his own fashion. Quote2.png
Infinity Gauntlet Vol 1 6
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
Doctor Strange, Sorcerer Supreme Vol 1 36
Quote1.png Let the Stars know you to be the Infinity Watch! Quote2.png
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 2
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
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 3
Quote1.png They suffered from a conflict between duty and conscience. I exploited that weakness to its fullest. And may the heavens forgive me. Quote2.png

Quote1.png I am now in contact with the Infinity Gauntlet! Quote2.png
Fantastic Four Vol 1 370
Quote1.png I am unfit for Duty. I have faced the Horror that gestates within and cannot endure the Reality. Better for the Universe if I were to sleep until the End of Time! Quote2.png
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 15
Quote1.png Adam Warlock is not one to be held in check by mere Hellfire Ash! Quote2.png
Silver Surfer/Warlock: Resurrection Vol 1 3

Silver Surfer/Warlock: Resurrection Vol 1 4
Quote1.png There is something terribly familiar about you. Quote2.png
Infinity Crusade Vol 1 1
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
Warlock Chronicles Vol 1 2
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
Warlock Chronicles Vol 1 3
Quote1.png I see now that even without you, I am complete! While you... you are but evil. You will be forever but a shade. Quote2.png

Warlock Chronicles Vol 1 5
Quote1.png It seems obvious Thor has plunged deep into the abyss of madness. Quote2.png
Silver Surfer Vol 3 87
Quote1.png I stand before a man in mental turmoil and anguish... quite insane. My goal is to help him despite the fact that some years back he nearly beat me to death: My most humiliating defeat. Unfortunately, his response to my Offer of aid is exactly as I expected it would be. Quote2.png
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 23
Quote1.png And I am golden, not bronze. Quote2.png
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 24
Quote1.png If we cure Thor, both he and Asgard will be eternally grateful. Quote2.png
Warlock Chronicles Vol 1 8
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
Mighty Thor Vol 1 471
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
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 28
Quote1.png Behold the Stronghold of Count Abyss! Quote2.png
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 31
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
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 35
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
Warlock and the Infinity Watch Vol 1 36

Rune/Silver Surfer Vol 1 1
Quote1.png We have shared souls, Surfer. I know you. Quote2.png
Cosmic Powers Unlimited Vol 1 1
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
Rune Vol 2 ∞
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
Ultraverse Unlimited Vol 1 1
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
Warlock Vol 4 1
Quote1.png Emotions seem only to confuse my thinking processes. Quote2.png
Warlock Vol 4 2
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
Infinity Abyss Vol 1 6
Quote1.png Sometimes trying too hard is the problem. Sometimes surrendering is the only path to victory. Quote2.png
Marvel Universe: The End Vol 1 6
Quote1.png Only you, Titan. Congratulations. You are clearly a person one does not easily forget. Quote2.png
Thanos Vol 1 1
Quote1.png None of that Bitten-by-a-Radioactive-Spider Claptrap here. Quote2.png
Warlock Vol 6 1
Quote1.png Hello Adam. My Name is Smith. Do you understand? Quote2.png
Warlock Vol 6 2
Quote1.png Look at him. The Powers of a God. But so ridiculously Human. So convinced of his Superiority, so ready for Anger. Quote2.png
Warlock Vol 6 4
Quote1.png I'm sorry, I don't know who you are... I don't really know who I am, either. Quote2.png
Annihilation: Conquest Vol 1 1
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
War of Kings: Who Will Rule? Vol 1 1
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
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 22
Quote1.png The Clash of Stones is upon us -- time has no meaning. Quote2.png
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 1 150
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
Infinity Wars Vol 1 6
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
Infinity Wars: Fallen Guardian Vol 1 1
Quote1.png Humanity will fight and die for control over a couple of stones. We will never be free of their burden. So I gave each stone a soul of its own. They will lead their own individual lives. Write their own destinies. Years ago the Soul Gem gave me a soul. Now I think I know why. It's so that I could give that same gift now. These souls will protect themselves or die trying. And if they do, we will be right back here again. In the same story. Quote2.png
