Next part in Sophie's Marvel Legends extravaganza, it's Adam Warlock!
Yea, I know I promised Gamora next, but this guy caught my eye and I decided to do him first. *shrugs*
So who is this guy? Why, he's Adam Warlock and he...fought Thanos at some point, I think? Yea, I make no illusions about me not knowing a darn thing about Marvel comics, and this guy is no exception: I know that back in the day he carried the Soul Gem (Soul Stone to us MCU scrubs) and fought Thanos at some point, and that's about it. I got nothin'
The figure itself gives me this kind of serene vibe for this guy, like he knows he's an ultra-powerful mage but he doesn't want to hurt a fly, the kind of dude you could probably sit around some superhero base with somewhere and chit-chat with about philosophy and that kind of thing. The alternate head though... Whoa. That's freaky.
Apparently this blue-skinned version of Adam is called the Magus, and he's, like, an evil future version of him, I think? I googled for like, 2 minutes. Again, MCU scrub here. This head is so cool, completely changes the feeling of the figure from serene but powerful to mad and unhinged, like he's gonna blast someone's head off just as a powermove, yikes...love the sculpting and paintwash on the hair though. Lovely detailing.
So yea, Adam Warlock: very cool figure, lots of posability and fun to be had, especially with the swappable heads...and speaking of heads, Adam comes with Mantis' head! Hang in there Mantis, we've only got Ex Nihilo and Gamora to go before you're all done and-oh? Oh...well, I guess Adam is gonna take a nice, long nap now while Mantis tries to get around with only one arm and leg. Best of luck to you Mantis, and sweet dreams Adam. May you dream of punching Thanos repeatedly in the face, or whatever it is that you do.
