Injustice: Gods Among Us adds Black Adam to character roster

Jordan Mallory

As if any superhero could exist in a fighting game without his or her perennial antagonist to become embattled against, Shazam's ancient Egyptian arch-enemy, Black Adam, has been revealed as a playable character in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

As seen in the solitary screenshot above, Black Adam shares Shazam's lightning-bolt motif, which makes sense considering that they were both given their powers by the same wizard, who was also named "Shazam." Additionally, Black Adam has to say "Shazam!" in order to activate his magical powers, which embody aspects of the Egyptian gods Shu, Heru, Amon, Zehuti, Aton and Mehen, or S.H.A.Z.A.M. Comic books, everybody.
