Teth-Adam was a slave in Kahndaq, where about the entirety of his family was killed by the dictators — all except his nephew Aman, whom Adam finally managed to contact and help safety valve from captivity, being mortally wounded by guards in holy order to buy him time. Aman, however, refused to abandon his dying uncle, and rescued him. in concert, while escaping the metro prisons, they found themselves magically transported into the Rock of Eternity, where they were greeted by Shazam. The charming, deeming Aman pure, offered him the character of his supporter, giving him the tax of freeing Kahndaq — which Aman accepted on the condition that Shazam healed Adam.

Being returned to Kahndaq, Aman and Adam contemplated how to use their powers in order to free their people. While Adam was bequeath to destroy the dictators and exact revenge for their dead family, Aman wanted to save them and give them peace, stopping all bloodshed. Fearing that Aman ‘s method acting would not work, Adam killed him and seized his powers for himself, seeing it as a necessary sacrifice for the greater good. Black Adam is known in caption for having defeated the dictators and the Seven Sins, successfully freeing Kahndaq. He besides battled against an stranger invasion from those who would later become known as the Paling, who had come to subdue Kahndaq and the pillow of the World centuries before the modern day. Adam defeated their supporter, the Pale Bishop in single combat, provoking the other aliens to flee Earth. [ 1 ] Though myth says he merely disappeared, Black Adam actually turned against the Council of Eternity and murdered all its members but Shazam — the charming, however, managed to overpower and seal Black Adam away. In the tenth Century, an vastly knock-down cryokinetic known as the Frost King arise, posing a threat to integral satellite. In order to stop him, Hippolyta of Themyscira, an immortal Viking Prince, and an avatar of the Green came together. however, knowing that flush with all their might they could not defeat the Frost King, they petitioned the Wizard Shazam, who reluctantly agreed to free his early champion Teth-Adam to aid them against the threat. [ 2 ] They traveled to Greenland, where the Frost King made his dwelling. They fought a misplace conflict against the Frost King, losing the Avatar to his constructs and his frozen powers. They fled south, moving as many civilians as they could into a fortress for their protection. however, Adam remained behind, and, having located the Frost King ‘s homo family, put them in his path, wagering that they would bring out the man that was once Edward Olafsson long enough that he could strike. much to the disgust of his companions, his plan worked, at least to some extent. In the chaos, the Frost King ‘s kin tumbled into a crevasse in the glacier below them, enraging Olaffson far. Frost King stabbed the Viking Prince through his chest, but the Prince, cursed with an endless animation salvage for a lord death, took the Frost King with him as he fell into the crevasse below. Using his might, Black Adam sealed the crevasse, locking the Frost King away. With ice receding, the Green ‘s embodiment, thought lost, was able to return. Combining their strength, Hippolyta, the Avatar, and the Wizard Shazam were able to return Black Adam to his grave, despite Adam ‘s struggles. [ 3 ] 130?cb=20130623190207 Sivana agreed to help Adam find the Wizard in exchange for a cure to help his dying family.[4] Sivana brought Adam to [5] finally a scientist named Doctor Thaddeus Sivana unsealed Adam ‘s grave in the twenty-first Century. Enraged at his millennial captivity, Black Adam slaughtered the entirety of Sivana ‘s research team, only sparing Sivana because he spoke Adam ‘s ancient language.Sivana agreed to help Adam find the Wizard in exchange for a cure to help his dying family.Sivana bring Adam to New York City to show him how much the World had changed. Adam seemed grave that the people of the advanced era lived such deplorable, mundane lives without magic. Deciding to take a closer attend, Adam flew devour to the street level where he witnessed a protest taking stead. Sivana explained that these people were protesting against a corrupt businessman who had stolen their livelihoods. Adam flew astir to the businessman ‘s position where he mercilessly dropped the man to his death. Adam saw how rightfully twisted the World was when rather of revering Adam for his actions, the protesters labeled him a monster and fled. Believing he had seen enough of the modern World, Adam brought Sivana into the sewers where he attempted to access the Rock of Eternity. however arsenic soon as he tried to enter the gateway he was shock backwards. Adam gazed into the gateway and saw the Wizard dead on the cold stone floor. He came to the realization that the Wizard had passed his powers onto a new supporter who would have to die before Adam could enter the Rock once again. [ 5 ] 130?cb=20130626192624

Adam travelled to an apartment in New York owned by a particularly corpulent valet. Adam knew that a serviceman this faineant would harbor a impregnable association to Sloth of the Seven Deadly Sins, and so used him to awaken Sloth from his captivity.

[ 5 ] It did n’t take long for Adam to find the new champion, as tales of his heroics in the city of Philadelphia reached far and wide. [ 6 ] Adam attacked the new champion on view, well overwhelming the deplorably unprepared modern arrival. however the champion escaped Adam ‘s wrath by transforming into his person form, blending in with the crowd. [ 7 ] Adam immediately went on a rampage through the city, knowing it would finally draw the ace out. Adam ‘s rampage was soon interrupted by Doctor Sivana, who had successfully gathered all even of the Deadly Sins. Adam tasked the Sins with tracking down the most icky soul in the city and using him/her as a conduit to wreak more havoc. [ 8 ] 180?cb=20170421161459
Adam was soon confronted by a adolescent boy named Billy Batson, who claimed to be the Wizard ‘s new champion. Billy claimed to know about Black Adam ‘s beginning and began trying to talk Adam out of conquering the World. not caring for Billy ‘s words, Adam grabbed Billy by the talk, stopping him from uttering the magic trick parole. [ 9 ] Before he could siphon Billy ‘s powers Adam was hit by a drivel truck driven by Batson ‘s foster kin. Knowing he could use these children as leverage against Billy, Adam took the class hostage, promising to let them go if Billy gave him the Wizard ‘s office. [ 10 ] however rather of casting the spell of authorization on Black Adam, Billy cast it on his syndicate, gifting them all with the ability of the Wizard. [ 11 ] Four of the family ‘s members immediately began helping civilians evacuate the battle zone, one more of the syndicate ‘s members battled the Seven Deadly Sins who had successfully possessed a decayed soul. This left Billy alone to confront Adam. Like ahead, Adam easily overwhelmed Billy. Knowing he could n’t defeat Adam in a physical fight Billy reverted back into his person kind and convinced Adam to do the same. however Adam had n’t taken into report how retentive he had been in his deity form and so a soon as he transformed into his deadly state of matter he crumbled into debris due to his old age. With Black Adam dead the Sins fled their host and scattered into the winds. [ 11 ] 130?cb=20130926192948
After Adam ‘s death, Shazam scattered his enemies ‘ ashes in the deserts of Kahndaq so he could be one with his fatherland. In the mod day Kahndaq was ruled over by an oppressive puppet of the Americans who called himself Ibac after the ancient barbarian. Seeking to free their country from oppression, an extremist rebel group known as the Sons of Adam gathered Black Adam ‘s ashes in the hopes that he could be resurrected. [ 12 ] After gathering Adam ‘s ashes the rebels cast the spell to resurrect him, imbuing Adam with the power of different gods in the process, all separate of the egyptian pantheon. Adam decided to assist the rebels in liberating Kahndaq. Adam flew to the capital where he effortlessly tore through the security of the imperial palace until he made his manner to Ibac. Adam picked up the royal enthrone of Kahndaq and smashed it on Ibac, destroying the ruling soundbox of Kahndaq. Adam then decided he would become his nation ‘s defender once again.
