Although 2021 is considered to be the year of Marvel movies, DC fans are also going to have an exciting year with The Suicide Squad and Black Adam. Dwayne Johnson wants to show a new face and become a superhero. Better to say, supervillain appears.
People usually confuse Shazam and Black Adam, so let’s have a comparison:
Who is the shazam:
Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam, published by DC Comics, He is a boy who, by saying the word “SHAZAM!”, is taken from the Greek gods Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury, who are in fact immortal, to turn him into an adult and dressed man with superhuman powers and abilities.
Doctor Sivana, Black Adam, Mister Mind, and the Monster Society of Evil are his enemy.
Dr. Sivana, one of Shazam’s enemies, accidentally released Siah Adam from prison, releasing him to continue the “Justice” crusade.
Who exactly is Black Adam?
Black Adam: “I am not a villain — not in the narrow definition of the word according to the self-named “modern” world. I fought alongside the Justice Society and, for a time, made them my allies… but I never earned their trust.”
One of the most prominent wizards in the world has been a hero and a villain. He was called Teth-Adam or “Mighty Adam” was, in fact, the hero of Shazam. His desires caused him to be exiled by Shazam. He changed to Black Adam, returned to the modern-day. Now his main country has become Kendndac.
When Black Adam turned from evil to an anti-hero, at first, he was more violent in the distribution of justice. Before that, he condemned those who hurt others out of greed, power and fought. That justice is superior to oppression.
Black Adam (Teth/Theo-Adam) is a fictional character comic from DC Comics. The character is a supervillain, one of the main enemies of the superhero Captain Marvel and the Marvel Family. Black Adam’s from the Egyptians who fought his way to modern times to challenge the hero and his Marvel Family associates.
Black Adam’s primary enemy of Captain Marvel/Shazam.has battled with Superman too on several occasions.
Shazam and Black Adam They are the same in terms of power. Shazam’s powers derived from the Greek gods, Black Adam’s from the Egyptian But because of Black Adam’s more brutal nature makes him the world’s deadliest man. But Black Adam often wins.
Shazam fights for justice and the security of the innocent. Against him, the black man does whatever is necessary to do justice from his point of view, regardless of the cost.
So far, the most prominent black man has been the animated short film Superman / Shazam: The Return of Black Adam, In which the black man returned to Earth after 5,000 years in exile to create chaos. Superman and Captain Marvel, they were able to defeat Black Adam.
