Pose, poser, post.

If this theory is correct then somebody did something about the last man, and that somebody was Cain.

On the contrary! Death is not an event in life, and Abel wasn't the last man until his death; thus, nothing Cain could have done to Abel could count as doing something about the last man per se. Cain can be said to have brought it about that Abel, and not someone else, was the last man, but he did not affect the last man qua last man.

He did, however, effect the last man.
