WHAT IS THE STORY OF BLACK ADAM?
This fantasy cum adventure comic reveals that Adam is the deadliest of all villains in the DC Universe. His real name is Teth Adam. He is said to have possessed all abilities of the Greco-Roman gods.
- The stamina of Shu
- The speed of Haru
- The strength of Amon
- Wisdom of Zehuti
- Power of Aton
- Courage of Mehen
He is chosen by the wizard Shazam to be his successor.
When he utters the magic word, ‘SHAZAM’ he transforms into ‘Mighty Adam’. But soon, he is corrupted due to the abundant powers. So in order to rule the nation, he kills the Pharaoh of Egypt and assumes the throne. Riled by this betray, Shazam renames him, Black Adam. He tries a lot to revoke the powers bestowed to him but he could not. So he banished him to a distant star in the Universe.
But Adam travels for about 5000 years from that star to reach Earth and upon arrival, he finds that Shazam has appointed Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel, and Captain Marvel Jr.[the Marvel family] as his successors.
Furious Adam battles with the family but could not defeat them as they are invulnerable. Uncle Marvel tricks Adam into saying, ‘Shazam’ so that he can once more transform into Teth Adam. 5000 years of aging has made Adam vulnerable to Captain Marvel’s knockdown. He dies turning into a skeleton.
BLACK ADAM APPEARANCES:
He first appeared in the Fawcett comics-Marvel Family #1 (December 1945). He has also featured in comic books like Justice Society of America, Villains United, Infinite Crisis, and 52.
In 2009, Imagine Games Network ranked Black Adam as 16th greatest comic villain.
DC fans are in strong hope that Adam would be the new Big-Bad and this film would be an absolute feast.
