    Meeting Warlock and the Inifity Watch

    Darklore and his fairie companion Meer'lyn first came across Warlock while traveling between dimensions, coming across Warlock while he is unconscious. He learns Adam's history when the Soul Gem tells him their situation. The Soul Gem thought that Darklore would be a far better host and easier to control that Warlock and assaulted him. The gem nearly took him, but Warlock came back to his senses and helps to point him in the right direction and they part as allies.

    Darklore appears later to assist Warlock and the Infinity Watch in their battle against Count Abyss. After Count Abyss is defeated, Darklore marries Count Abyss' assistant Maya who Warlock had at one point been mystically enchanted to fall in love with.


    Darklore strongly resembles previous Jim Starlin character Darklon, who he is probably meant to homage.
