Running out of time, Atlez acted to restore Warlock. Atlez added a single-line, "Adam Warlock is the key to oblivion," to the data stream of the nihilistic Thanosi, self-variants of the mad Titan Thanos created using a combination of sorcery, cloning, and technology designed to combat specific beings. Depleting his power reserves, Atlez caused a meteor to crash into Thanos' then-abandoned base to free one of the Thanosi. Instead, several Thanosi were freed — Armour, Mystic, Warrior, X, and Omega; designed as counterparts to Iron Man, Doctor Strange, the Imperial Guardsman Gladiator, Professor X, and Galactus — and Atlez's plans spiralled out of control as they plotted to slay Atlez and Atleza and to destroy all reality. The Thanosi caused pockets of non-existence to engulf portions of the universe, but Atleza subconsciously protected her household from this effect. The Thanosi did recover Warlock, who joined with Thanos, Pip the Troll, deadly warrior-woman Gamora, the Silver Surfer, Captain Marvel (Genis-Vell), Dr. Strange, Moondragon, and Spider-Man to protect Atleza and destroy the Thanosi. Warlock transferred Atlez's tutorial to Atleza, who accepted her cosmic role. Warlock and Gamora joined the two year old Atleza in her new realm to ease her transition and act as foster parents.
