ABOUT BLACK ADAM
Black Adam is the antagonist of Shazam (formerly Captain Marvel). The character first appeared in DC comics in the 1940s, starting off as a power-hungry villain and then slowly turning into an anti-hero by the 2000s. According to the DC Comics website, “Black Adam is an ancient wielder of magic, both a hero and a villain over his thousands-years-long life. He believes that he is the right person to lead humanity and that he is the solution to the greater good of the world, but has allowed his power to corrupt him over the many years of his life.”The teaser of Black Adam
