Who is Black Adam

Kahndaq was an oppressive nation that used magic and sorcery to enslave parts of its population during Adam’s time. However, after becoming the Champion, Adam used his power to free his people and rule Kahndaq as its king.

Adam was a hero at first, but after his family was murdered, he turned to darkness and unintentionally unleashed the demons known as the Seven Deadly Sins. He was then imprisoned for his crimes, and Black Adam will release him after 5000 years, determined to restore Kahndaq to its former glory.

It is currently unknown how the film relates to Shazam! However, the Wizard’s death may be what allows Adam to escape his prison. While the plot of the film has yet to be revealed, we can expect to see Black Adam re-establish his kingdom.

This could cause the JSA to oppose him, resulting in a conflict between Adam and the superheroes. Given how these stories usually end, a larger threat will most likely emerge, prompting the heroes to band together to save the world.
