Adam Warlock, the artificial being created by the scientific complex called the Beehive, was originally known only as Him. The scientists' goal was to create the ultimate human in a bid for world domination, but they had created something that was beyond their ability to control. Realizing the evil intent of the Beehive scientists, Him would assist the Fantastic Four in defeating their plans.

The artificial being would leave Earth to encounter many wondrous beings, and learn many hard lessons, occasionally at the cost of his life. One being he would encounter was his mentor the High Evolutionary, who would empower him with the Soul Gem, giving him the power of a god known as Warlock.
