Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson)
Created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck, Black Adam is one of the most famous super-villains in the DC universe, and one that primarily serves as the antagonist and archenemy to Shazam, once known as Captain Marvel. First introduced in the comics back in 1945, the villainous character has been a recurring presence in the DC comic universe, notably in the ’70s. In recent years, though, under the creative influence of Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S. Goyer, Black Adam has been re-contextualized and re-defined as an antihero who is working to clear his smeared name.
