Who is Black Adam?
- Black Adam is an egyptian ancestor to Captain Marvel
- Black Adam was ranked the 16th greatest comic book villain of all time by IGN
- Dwayne Johnson will play Black Adam on big screen
Black Adam was a corrupt Egyptian ancestor to Captain Marvel who made his way in modern times to challenge the hero and his collaborators in the Marvel family.
However, since the early 21st century, DC Comics writers Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S. Goyer have redefined Black Adam as a corrupt antihero trying to whitewash his name and reputation.
Featured roles in comic book series such as Justice Society of America (JSA), Villains United, Infinite Crisis, and 52 have increased the character's notoriety in the DC Universe.
In 2009, Black Adam was ranked the 16th greatest comic book villain of all time by IGN.
The character will make his film debut in Black Adam beginning in 2022, played by Dwayne Johnson, set in DC Extended Universe.
Doomsday Clock is one of the most exciting plotlines. Adam rallied the villainous meta-humans to fight against the US after it was revealed that the government created many American heroes.
Black Adam is the definition of an antihero. Although he looks like a murderer and a madman, he is not.
As the leader of his homeland, Kahndaq, Black Adam indeed did his best to protect the citizens from him. He also doesn't value killing as much as he seems.
He mourns the death of his nephew, and more so, you can see that he killed a boy, Shazam, to defeat the wizard, and he gets angry that the wizard chose a boy again.
Unlike people like the Joker, Black Adam always gives most innocents a second chance when he needs to kill them, and while he doesn't mind collateral damage, he tries to avoid it as best he can.
Black Adam is not evil, but he believes that sometimes evil is the only way to do good.
