Dwayne Johnson is one of the biggest stars in Hollywood and is taking his turn in the superhero world with Black Adam, the latest in the DC canon. The origins of Black Adam date back to the ancient land of Kahndaq when he went by Teth Adam. It was a land of power and enlightenment until a tyrant took over. Teth Adam was gifted with special powers by the gods but banished and imprisoned. He was referred to as the Champion, and it was believed that one day he come back and save the people of Kahndaq. Nearly 5000 years pass when Black Adam returns after an ancient crown is found and the word “Shazam” is shouted. Not everyone views him as the Champion when members of The Justice Society of superheroes embark on Kahndaq to stop Black Adam once and for all.
