    Default Adam Warlock punches a Kamen Rider (from Annihilation Conquest)

    adam warlock vs shatterax.jpg


    Adam was One Punch Man before it was cool.




    BTW i know that's Shatterax, i was joking that he looks like a Kamen Rider.

    I agree, not a fan of the current design inspired by MadMan.

    I wonder if the Rider reference was deliberate. He does look like J.

    I don't think Mark Gruenwald or any american comic book author was aware of Kamen Rider back in 1992, when Shatterax debuted in Operation Galactic Storm.

    That was my favourite look for him.

    All his other costumes including the current one all Lok the same.

    How can you dislike a classic look like this?

    Don't be so sure. Marvel had dealings with KR's owner Toei in the 1970s. The result was Japanese Spider-Man and the Super Sentai series Battle Fever J (which was inspired by Captain America).

    Best Adam was 90's Adam. Add the chest thunderbolt and he's perfect. Which is actually what the current design is, but wrong hair.

    I hope he has an important role in the upcoming Annihilation sequel since the Universal Church of Truth Is probably going to be the antagonist faction.

    Those japanese superhero shows from the seventies are kind of like a less comedic and more violent version of Adam West's Batman.

    Kamen Rider is also from the 1970s, and is much more serious (Kamen Rider always has been darker and edgier compared to Super Sentai). Started in 1971. So believe me when I say that someone at Marvel knew about it. Spider-Man and BFJ were made in 1978 and 1979.

    I have no doubt that Shatterax was a deliberate homage.

    I know. Both KR and SS were made by Shotaro Ishinomori, the japanese Jack Kirby
