Injustice: Gods Among Us Black Adam Moves, Combos and Strategy Guide

Black Adam was once one of the Earth’s greatest heroes, but that was a long, long time ago. Chosen by the council of wizards as their champion, and endowed with incredible magical and physical powers, Black Adam eventually turned on his benefactors and sought to dominate all life on the Earth.

After a brutal battle with the wizards, he was imprisoned for thousands of years. But now he is free once more, and his insatiable quest to conquer the world, to control all magic, continues. The only thing that stands in his way is Shazam! The new champion of magic—and Black Adam will do anything in his power to destroy him and assert his position as the true ruler of the world.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Black Adam Moves, Combos and Strategy

Black Adam is not only incredibly powerful; he is also proficient in magic and can fly. This makes him especially potent against Superman who is vulnerable to such assaults. He shows no mercy to his opponents and offers nothing but the opportunity to kneel to all others.

“Teth Adam’s power comes from yelling the word “SHAZAM!” This imbues Adam with the powers of six gods and heroes of the ancient world. He rules his nation of Kahndaq with an iron fist.”
