15 Lightning Round Facts About Black Adam

DC, Warner Bros.

In case you have been ignoring television, the internet, movie trailers, comic books, your nephew’s inane ramblings during family dinner, or the world in general, Black Adam is out in theaters this weekend. Two juggernauts within the entertainment industry, DC and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, have spent years creating this film, and it’s finally come to fruition. Whether it’s a good movie or a bad one after all this time is a matter for a different article. This one answers the question, “Who the hell is Black Adam?”

Up until this point, Black Adam has been at best a cult favorite character until Johnson signed the dotted line to star as him for DC. No one can blame you if you haven’t heard of his name alongside Superman, Batman, or even Aquaman. However, if you look into the character’s lore, you can definitely see the appeal and complexity of Black Adam that the stereotypical superhero lacks.

Here are some facts about Black Adam to hopefully hype you up for the movie.
