A future Gamora, calling herself Requiem, seeks out the Infinity Gems so that she can bring balance to Soul World and allow a cosmic entity known as Devondra to feed on reality. She hopes that doing so would allow her to remake the universe into one where no one has to suffer the way that she did through her life. After the current Gamora fuses with her future self, they attempt to carry out their plan but something goes wrong and only Earth and its heroes are pulled into Soul World. Determined to not be defeated like Thanos, she cuts the population of heroes in half. Unfortunately, this plan goes awry again when all the souls of heroes (and villains) are “folded in half” resulting in two souls inhabiting one body. And thus Warp World is born.
Loki, attempting to get the Infinity Gems for himself, is banished to Warp World by Gamora and seeks out heroes to help him. He is able to split the heroes from their merged forms and forms his own “Cosmic Avengers.” They’re able to reach Adam Warlock outside Warp World but find that he is battling Devondra as its corruption begins to manifest inside of the pocket universe.
The Cosmic Avengers are able to obtain the gems and after Loki uses them to see his own future, he returns them to the other heroes so that they can destroy Devondra. With the threat defeated, Adam Warlock makes a deal with Soldier Supreme (who had not been split during this battle). Using the power of the gems, all the souls inside Warpworld would be “copied” and it would continue to exist as a pocket universe within Soul World, which is in turn the pocket universe “inside” the Soul Gem.
