With the X-Men, Marvel Comics has told countless stories that were allegorical and parallel to many social ills that are rooted in fear. With Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel, Marvel Comics tells a more straightforward story that provides a definition of racism as oppressive behavior rooted in prejudice and fear, a definition that has been watered down since the Civil Rights era, which is when the country's first black superhero came into play, according to Marvel Comics.

In present day United States, the Avengers, led by Iron Man, are trying to find the Blue Marvel when they need to defeat a villain whose powers match those of the Blue Marvel. Their search for him leads to uncovering a secret that involves the U.S. government. Meanwhile, the villain, known as Anti-Man, is set to destroy Earth, making the stakes in the Avengers quest high and the story a page turner.
