Chapter 1
The records state that:

Adam Warlock is an artificially created human who was born in a cocoon at a scientific complex called The Beehive. The goal of his creators, the Enclave, was to create and subsequently exploit the perfect human. While in the cocoon, he became aware of his creators' plans for him. He awoke from the cocoon and rebelled. Having not had a childhood or parents, Warlock was lacking in maturity and restraint. He first met Alicia Masters, who was brought to the Beehive to sculpt his face, as he initially radiated so much light that a sighted person could not see through. She found him encased in a cocoon, from which he shortly emerged, destroying his creators that he hated so much, and teleported away. Warlock later came into conflict with the Fantastic Four and Thor; during his encounter with Odinson, he was killed when he attempted to force Thor's sometime paramour Sif to become his mate.

Adam was revived and his behavior improved when he met the being known as the High Evolutionary. Under his guidance, Warlock's life was given direction and purpose. Warlock also came into possession of the Soul Gem. The Soul Gem, one of the Infinity Gems, allowed Warlock to sense the souls of others and draw them into a dimension contained within the gem.

Chapter 1
"Well it's cool. If we meet him again I'll probably kill him anyway" Valkyrie said after that short briefing: it was obvious what she thought about rapists. "Or maybe just feed him to Galactus. It's about what he deserves. I'll probably cut a little bit off him before we do that: I'm sure Sif would like a trophy" she clearly wasn't feeling very charitable towards Adam

"In the meantime," Stark says, "do we know anything about what kind of technology Galactus uses? Do you, Surfer?"

Chapter 1
"We were all taught about Galactus when we were children" Valkyrie said partly in answer to Iron Man "He was the boogy man. 'Be good or Galactus will come and eat your planet'. He uses the Power Cosmic. His technology is so advanced that even to my people it might as well be magic. He outdates the cosmos, is billions of years old, and as you might imagine has had plenty of time to make toys, never mind his immense personal power. Fighting him is pointless: he can destroy multiple solar systems simultaneously if he wishes."

"If we want to deal with him we have to find something he fears, trick him or find an alternative place to eat that is more attractive. Perhaps there are other ways... If so our lore doesn't know of them"

"When I was child, he would only consume a single planet every millenia or so. I think Earth has been incredibly unlucky to have been targeted. If we had the tech or magic to evacuate people, I would suggest we use it. As it is ... perhaps Dr Strange could be asked to open a portal in cities and we could evacuate a few?"
she shrugged. She was out of ideas. "I think it's time to get drunk. Is there some booze around here?"

Chapter 1
"Where you are thinking of going?" Valkyrie asked puzzled "You mentioned Adam Warlock, although I don't know why, so perhaps we could go see him. If not... well let's keep talking until we have a plan that is a little better than 'see Galactus, SMASH'. That plans is only going to end one way and that isn't a nice one"

"So have you found Mr Warlock yet? Have we found a clue for something that Galactus might want or fear? Do we have a cunning plan to trick him? What is the plan?"
she looked around "And where do you keep the drink in this boat?"

Chapter 1
"That's good" Valkyrie said approvingly. "But... I'm sorry for appearing dense. We have the name 'Adam Warlock'. We know he's a mind controlling rapist pig. But what do we want to do when we meet him apart from cutting off parts of his anatomy? We only have his name. Is he a person we want to use to help fight against Galactus? A person who we can feed to Galactus? A person who knows Galactus's secret? Why do we want to go meet him?" Valkyrie was obviously a little confused about what on earth, perhaps literally, was going on

She'd finally found the drink and was testing it. It seemed to her that getting drunk was a plan with no downside given the inevitability of what was going to happen.

"But we do have a new weapon!" Nick Fury reveals an Arc Reactor "We have extracted Cosmic Energy from the surfer's board! The Arc Reactor is made from Wakandan Vibrainium purchased  from Ulysses Klaw. This could give us an edge! We are also developing a new suit out of Vibrainium to go with it."

Chapter 1
Natasha sat in the corner and listened to Nick's report and shook her head at Valkyrie's assessment "from the report this Warlock fellow was a Frankenstein's Monster, created by man and his crimes if he even committed any are their faults. As a child he must have reached out for a companion" he stated and then with some sass she added "and if we have no chance of salvation or redemption then judge me 'cause I am what I am. I am not the sum of the deeds I have committed" the Black Widow had completed so many jobs for many people and many were dubious.

"Now he'd been nurtured by the High Evolutionary and no longer the child he was I imagine he'll be eager to help us as a redeemed soul" Black Widow stood up "let's go to Nova".

Chapter 1
"I assume 'frankenstien's monster' is a local culture reference" Valkyrie said trying to understand what Natasha had said "Mind controlled and indoctrinated people are different to people that say 'oh I had a terrible upbringing and they didn't teach me right from wrong', or even worse 'they did it to me so they have it coming'. I have few views on 'the rights to redemption'. I'd want to see the person start acting better first. Given your words" Valkyrie clearly was actually listening "if Mr Warlock apologises for raping my friend who I have fought back to back with for centuries, I will loose my desire to remove a part of his anatomy"

She still didn't understand the plan. Were they going to enlist him, or fight him for the soul gem? or what? But since she'd found the booze she decided to leave that to other people. If they were going to die, she didn't particularly want to die sober

Stark looks up as Thor enters. "What do you know, Thor's having another great hair day. C'mon, it's save-the-world time. We're going on a road trip, we'll brief you on the way." Then he looks at Natasha: "Shotgun!"

As he heads for the door, he uses his phone to connect with the latest Iron Man mark and have it meet them at the pad where the Quinjets are parked.

Chapter 1
"As an artificial creation who knows what anatomy this Warlock has. When we get to him we can find out and ask him his side of the story and if a crime was committed we can bring him back to Earth for justice" Nastasha accepted that Valkyrie had a need to see this through to the end and it was better to have her onboard for the whole saving of the Earth deal. So Natasha didn't see the need to discuss it any further now.

When Stark had similar ideas she gave him a nod "let's go into space then cowboy".

Valkyrie gave Thor a toast as he arrived, and nodded in acknowledgement of Black Widow's points. "What the lady said" she agreed
