Maxam first appeared in a vision of Gamora, then wielder of the Infinity Gem of time, wherein Maxam murdered Adam Warlock.[volume & issue needed] He later appeared on the island of the Infinity Watch with no memory of his past.[volume & issue needed]
Eventually it was revealed that Maxam was from an alternate future earth where the majority of humanity had been wiped out by the Universal Church of Truth, an organization ruled by the future evil self of Adam Warlock known as the Magus. Maxam was sent back in time to destroy Adam before he could become the Magus.[volume & issue needed]
Maxam and his friend Zhang were raised by a Badoon named Master Ecclaw. To aid in Maxam's mission Ecclaw saw to it that Maxam's mind was heavily fortified to protect against telepaths who might uncover his true purpose for being in the past.[volume & issue needed]
Maxam eventually regained his memories when he briefly wielded the Infinity Gem of Time.[volume & issue needed]
Powers and abilities
- Maxam can summon additional body mass increasing his strength and durability to levels he has stated as being an even match for Drax The Destroyer and Hercules, even allowing him to, through supreme effort, break free of the Invisible Woman's force-field when she had imprisoned him.
- He is completely invulnerable to psionic attacks.
- He is also a highly capable fighter, who was able to momentarily block Gamora's attacks, which is not an easy task by any measure.
