After his syndicate was murdered by criminals, Adam unintentionally released the Seven Deadly Sins from their prison, killing countless millions. ascribable to this awful act, he was imprisoned by Shazam in the confines of the Earth for five thousand years, until his spill and try to liberate Kahndaq once again .


early life

Slave in Kahndaq

Teth-Adam was born in the african nation of Kahndaq around the year 3000 B.C., growing up in a hapless, slave family that was constantly tortured by the nation ‘s leaders who sent him to the mines. Due to the justices that tormented him, Adam developed a hatred against his leaders, although constantly full of courage and fearlessness to attend to situations that required it. finally, Adam married a charwoman named Shiruta, whom they would give birth to Hurut, from an early age Adam taught his son that the world they lived in was a dangerous one, despite Hurut ‘s wishes to improve it. [ 1 ] [ 2 ]

Mentoring his son

This world is a dangerous one. I know you know this. We need to keep our heads down and trust that things will get better in Kahndaq one day. But that day is not today…
―Teth-Adam to Hurut[src]

Teth-Adam was heading to claim some apples in the village until he was interrupted by Hurut who came running excited to find a bangle to give to his mother Shiruta, while Adam reminded him that it was his safety to return to the mines .
Teth-Adam then approached the seller to claim more than one apple to which he refused, arguing that it was merely one apple per worker, so Adam raised his eyebrow in astonishment causing the seller to agree to give him one more apple for his duplicate solve in the mines. Adam took the apple and thanked the seller, so he left with his son and as they walked he asked him to throw the bangle before person noticed him .
In that Adam and his son heard how some gladiators were beating civilians, for what a worry Hurut tried to do something about it however his church father stopped him taking him by the hand, Adam then proceeded to kneel and tell him that the world was dangerous and that there was nothing they could do about it but they should hope that one day it would improve, but not being that day Teth-Adam took to Hurut, and turned aside from the gladiators. [ 2 ]

Becoming a champion

once a slave, Teth-Adam became the first champion of the charming Shazam, chosen for his expansive acts and brave heart. He was bestowed with the powers of the egyptian Gods. [ 3 ] With his new gifts, he freed his people from the former king of Kahndaq and would go on to become the newfangled rule of his fatherland. [ 1 ]

Seven thrones of seven wizards. But long ago, we chose a champion and we chose recklessly. He used his power for revenge, releasing the Seven Deadly Sins into your world. Millions of lives were lost. Entire civilizations erased from existence. That is why I vowed never to pass on my magic until I find one truly good person. Strong in spirit, pure in heart.
―Shazam to Billy Batson[src]

But while he was off fighting person else ‘s war, his family was murdered by criminals. This turn of events led Teth-Adam to protect Kahndaq by any means necessary, resorting to ferociousness and pitilessness, so he unintentionally unleashed the Seven Deadly Sins upon the criminals who killed his class and the people of Kahndaq, thereby killing millions and causing the end of several early ancient civilizations. [ 1 ]


In reaction to such harsh acts, the Wizard plagued him with the name “ Black Adam ”, before leaving him bury always since. For centuries the Wizard Shazam attempted to find person pure enough of kernel to carry the blanket. In 1974, the Wizard thought he had come close with a young son named Thaddeus Sivana. But he was tempted by the putrescence offered by the Seven Sins, and like Teth-Adam, started to give in. Thus the Wizard was forced to return the son and continue the search. It was only until the modern era that the Wizard Shazam would choose a newly champion – Billy Batson. When bringing Batson to the Rock of Eternity, the Wizard concisely recounted the history of Teth-Adam ‘s tragic narrative, showing Batson a hologram of Teth-Adam ‘s costly rampage across the Earth. [ 1 ]


Well, I’m going to teach them that the only beliefs I fight for are mine. Welcome to truth, justice, and the Black Adam way.
