The Guardians of the Galaxy and Sam Alexander realize Magus is still alive, and is approaching Drax's homeworld. Magus sends several asteroids straight towards the planet. While Sam, Star-Lord, Gamora, and Drax deal with the asteroids, Rocket and Groot follow Magus to his next target - Planet Y, home to Rocket's family and the rest of Groot's species. Magus steals the world pod that Adam revived, and drains its energy to increase his own. Sam and the other Guardians arrive to help them, but are no match for the Magus. Desperate, Star-Lord takes off his Centurion helmet so Magus will absorb him into his gem, where he comes face-to-face with J'Son. While Star-Lord battles his father, Magus attacks the others with illusions disguised as their loved ones that they must destroy with the Centurion helmets' power. The struggle inside his gem forces Warlock to rapidly shift between his Magus and Adam forms. As Adam, Warlock tells the other Guardians to take off their helmets so they can be absorbed inside the gem and help Quill. Seeing his friends in danger brings a strength out of Quill that allows him to overcome his father. Rather than kill his now-defenseless father, Star-Lord chooses to "hug it out" with his dad. This act of mercy brings out the best side of Warlock, permanently transforming him back into Adam. The Guardians of the Galaxy and J'Son leave Warlock's gem. While Adam reverses the damage the Magus did to Planet Y, J'Son grabs Quill's Centurion helmet. In one last move of desperation, J'Son begins to go "Supernova." Adam takes the full force of the blast to save the Planet Y from J'Son. Realizing their time with Warlock is at an end, the Guardians thank Adam for all they've done for him, and Groot makes a new cocoon for him. The Guardians of the Galaxy leave Planet Y, ready to go off on their next adventure...
