    Black Adam [22]

    Expectation Reviews   
    I was not familiar with the Black Adam comic book. If I had to guess from the title, Black Adam is a troubled anti-hero. My dad was a fan of the Shazam Captain Marvel comics. I have yet to ask him if he remembers Black Adam as a villain.

    According to the Wikipedia,

    Black Adam was originally depicted as a supervillain and the ancient Egyptian predecessor of Captain Marvel, who fought his way to modern times to challenge the hero and his Marvel Family associates. Since the turn of the 21st century, however, Black Adam has been redefined by DC Comics writers Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S. Goyer as a corrupted antihero attempting to clear his name and reputation.

    I got the anti-hero part right.

    Black Adam is an ancient Egyptian named Teth-Adam (i.e., "Mighty Human"), who is chosen by the wizard Shazam to be his successor due to his presumed moral purity. When Teth-Adam says the magic word "Shazam", he is transformed into Mighty Adam, a super-powered being possessing the same powers that Captain Marvel would later be granted; however, Mighty Adam is soon corrupted by the vastness of his powers. Originally, the wizard Shazam grants Adam powers derived from ancient Greco-Roman deities; later in the series, it was changed to ancient Egyptian deities. Deciding that he should rule the world, Mighty Adam overthrows and kills the pharaoh and assumes the Egyptian throne. Angered by this betrayal, Shazam renames his errant champion Black Adam and—unable to revoke the powers he gave Adam—banishes him to the most distant star in the universe. Black Adam spends the next 5,000 years flying back to Earth. By the time he makes it back, in 1945, Shazam has appointed three new champions to take his place: Captain Marvel, Captain Marvel Jr., and Mary Marvel.

    I am not sure if anyone remembers his name and reputation by the time he returns to Earth. By the way, could he not find a better planet to settle on if he knew his way back to Earth? He has no point to prove.

    Dwayne the Rock Johnson could totally play this. In fact, when I saw the trailer, I bought the premise right there and then. I am not really a DC movie fan, more of a Marvel Movie fan. In the 1980s, I was a DC comic book fan, much more so than a Marvel fan.
