I was thinking about how when he was on Counter Earth he used to have a group of non powered friends (Dave, Jason, Eddie and Ellie) but ever since Starlin got a hold of him he became snotty and aloof and rarely takes part in a story unless the universe is at stake.
Can Adam ever go back to the small stakes like when he was on Counter Earth? He was more of a hero there than a messiah or svengali or whatever creep he turned into from Infinity Gauntlet going forward. Could we ever go back to hero Adam who more or less had some humanity and patience for people?
Im going to guess no. Because most of us were introduced to him in Infinity Gauntlet.
Having said that they did kind of fake an attempt a story like that in the earliy 2000's.
