Maxam was a super powered amnesiac who one day washed up on shore of Monster Isle where the Infinity Watch resided.[1] Gamora had previously seen Maxam killing Adam Warlock in a vision given to her by the Time Gem.[2]

Maxam joined the Infinity Watch soon afterward but did not have a infinity gem as the other members did. Moondragon even with the Mind Gem at her disposal, was incapable of reading Maxam's thoughts which caused Gamora to still harbor misgivings about him.[3]

Maxam proved himself to be a trustworthy member of the group and helped the team in many battles against Count Abyss[4], Thor after he was struck by the Warrior Madness[5] and during the Infinity Crusade.[6]

Maxam vs. Hercules

After Moondragon was critically injured, the Infinity Watch met to decide the fate of the Mind Gem. Maxam offered to take the gem but Gamora was adamant that he not be entrusted with the gem. After making a comment about Gamora's love for Adam Warlock, Gamora attacked Maxam and tried to kill him. Gamora begged Adam Warlock to have faith in her and that Maxam was not to be trusted. When Adam refused to see her side of things Gamora quit the Infinity Watch and threw the Time Gem at Adam. Later that night Maxam placed the time gem upon his brow and regained his lost memories.[7]

Maxam was a time traveler from a future where Adam Warlock's evil self the Magus had conquered the universe. Maxam and his childhood friend Zhang were cared for by a Badoon named Master Ecclaw. Maxam was chosen to be the one sent back into the past while Zhang's fate is unknown.[8]

Maxam was sent back to destroy the Magus's "larval stage" of Adam Warlock. Maxam ambushed Adam and they fought. Maxam was finally defeated by Moondragon using her mental powers to give Maxam the hallucination that he had slain Adam Warlock in battle. With his mission seemingly completed Maxam teleported back to his own timeline never to be seen again.[9]
