Autolycus (Marvel)
Real Name: Autolycus
Search for 'Autolycus (Marvel)' on Amazon

Autolycus' physical powers were enhanced by the church. He possessed superhuman strength (Class 2), speed, reflexes and senses. He also had considerable skill at hand-to-hand combat, enough to enable him to battle Adam Warlock despite Warlock's superior strength. Autolycus was a brilliant navigator; by absorbing his skills Warlock was able to safely navigate through a black hole. Autolycus carried the standard issue energy pistol of all Black Knights, as well as an energy club.

Captain Autolycus was once the leader of the Black Knights of the Universal Church of Truth. When Adam Warlock began his crusade against the Church and attacked Autolycus's starship the "Great Divide", he was blasted out of the sky and Autolycus placed him in the brig pending execution. Autolycus was ordered to kill Warlock, and though he was disgusted by the order, he resolved to follow it. Warlock and the other captives broke out of the cell-block, and overthrew Autolycus' crew. Warlock and Autolycus faced off, and although Warlock was the better opponent he found himself unable to kill Autolycus. Autolycus was about to shoot Warlock dead, when Warlock's soul gem acted on its own and stole Autolycus's soul.

Since then, Autolycus has resided within "Soul World", the pocket universe inside the soul gem. Autolycus became a peaceful citizen of the dimension, living in peace with others such as Kray-Tor and later Pip the Troll, Gamora, and even Adam Warlock himself.
