The movie version of Black Adam will be different than the current comic book version. For example, Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam will likely have a different name from Teth-Adam, as the movie version of Black Adam was a slave and Adam was not his original name. This blog will explore the comic book backstory of Black Adam, as well as how similar or different he may be from the movie version.

Power of Black Adam in movie
In the comic book series "Shazam," we have Black Adam, who has many powers. His early life was spent as a slave in Egypt until his master, Imhotep came across a secret cave that would be able to bestow him with power similar to the Gods of Olympus. In this cave, he found an ancient statue of an Atlantean *** named Magicus and spoke monosyllabic words ("Shazam" being one word in the DC Universe) which caused the statue to come to life. This statue spoke aloud and divulged his true name: Teth-Adam (at this time, as in other modern adaptations, he was referred to as 'Mighty Adam').
