According to Rotten Tomatoes, a movie critic site “Black Adam appeared in a single 1945 issue of the original Fawcett Comics’ The Marvel Family as the Wizard Shazam’s former and failed apprentice.

“Seeing promise in the young Egyptian warrior named Teth-Adam, the Wizard granted him all the powers he eventually gave Billy Batson.

“But when the power corrupted the then “Mighty Adam,” who used his abilities to kill the sitting Pharaoh and assume the throne, the Wizard dubbed him “Black Adam” and cast him out into space some 5000 light years from Earth.

“Finally returning five millennia later, Black Adam extended his anger to Billy and the rest of the Marvel Family.

“But that first story ended with a certain finality; the character ages rapidly to death when he is tricked into saying “Shazam” and relinquishing his powers.”

However the popular movie critic did not release a score or critic about the movie as it has not been released. Once the movie has been released, there will be professional criticisms about it as well as the viewers’ opinions.
