Synopsis for "The Hounds of Helios!"

David Carter, Jason Grey, and Eddie and Ellie Roberts rushed over to Adam Warlock, who landed on the ground, unconscious. Adam Warlock got up and forgot who he was. The four attempted to help Adam Warlock, who was remembered that he was once called Warlock. In a flashback, Adam Warlock had fought against the High Evolutionary. Meanwhile, the Evil New Men, consisting of Kohbra and Rhodan, who were allied with Man-Beast, made plans to go to Southern California to confront Adam Warlock. Meanwhile, Colonel Barney Roberts, Josiah Grey, and Senator Nathan Carter went to the barn where Adam Warlock landed to investigate, where they confronted their children. Adam Warlock emerged from the barn and defended the eight humans from Rhodan and the Hounds of Helios. Then, the four men asked who Adam Warlock was, who responded by having them look into his eyes, resulting in them becoming silent. Afterwards, Adam Warlock revealed that Rhodan had been transformed into a primitive mouse and killed by a cat.

Notes

  • Reprinted in Marvel Masterworks: Warlock Vol 1 1. Warlock next appears in Warlock Vol 1 1

Trivia

  • First appearances of Eddie Roberts and Counter-Earth-Versions of Reed Richards, Victor von Doom, and Bruce Banner
  • Warlock does not remember his Name or where he came from at first, he than recalls, that someone said, that he would be called Warlock, Ellie Roberts than gives him the first name Adam
  • The 4 page filler story is reprinted from Yellow Claw #2, which was printed in 1956. It has been updated to fit into the Marvel world by replacing "F.B.I." with "S.H.I.E.L.D.", and Jimmy's Chief with Nick Fury.
  • In this Yellow Claw reprint, they recolor the panels. Most notably Yellow Claw is given a normal skin tone instead of his trademark Jaundiced Yellow. Without jaundice, his name just seems racist.
