Seeking to create a New Earth, the High Evolutionary travels to the far side of the sun, where he encounters Him's cocoon. Taking Him aboard, the High Evolutionary explains that he is creating a new, perfect Earth. Intrigued, Him observes the process. Having created a new planet, the High Evolutionary falls asleep at a critical moment, allowing the Man-Beast to corrupt his creation. Faced with a decision, the High Evolutionary bestows Him with the Soul Gem and a name, Warlock, sending him to defend Counter-Earth!
