Black Adam first appeared in the Marvel Family #1 comic book series (1945) published by Fawcett Comics. After DC bought a series of character rights of this comic book company, Black Adam immediately became an arch-enemy with Shazam, although the two appeared together not much before.
Once a slave in the Kahndag region of ancient Egypt, Black Adam was given strength by the sorcerer Shazam, but was eventually corrupted and chose the path of revenge despite the tricks of those who made him miserable.
Black Adam’s power comes from 6 ancient Egyptian gods: Shu (God of the Wind) with invincible strength, Heru (God of the sky, war, and hunting) endowed with superhuman speed, Amon ( Protector of the Pharaohs) bestows physical strength, Zehuti (God of wisdom) grants unparalleled wisdom, Aton (part of Ra – the Sun god) grants the power of thunder and Mehen (God of the Sun) Snake) bestows the power of courage.
