->'''AKA:''' Theo Adam / Teth-Adam
[[quoteright:184:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/black_adam_6112.jpeg]]

Black Adam was an Egyptian champion of Shazam given his powers, who was sent into suspended animation after corrupting them upon the deaths of his family. In modern times, he was reincarnated in the body of a descendant, a thief and a murderer. Eventually, his original personality took hold, though before long, it was revealed that he was pretty brutal in the old days as well. Twisting various other legacy heroes to his ways, he formed his own team, took over his home country (killing the dictator in charge), and became a huge AntiHero character. He gained and lost a new family once his new team broke up, as Isis and Osiris were brutally killed in the ''ComicBook/FiftyTwo'' event, and he became a genocidal maniac as a result. Shazam has finally decided to punish him by turning him into a statue, and until the ComicBook/{{New 52}} reboot, he remained stuck that way.

A very different version of Black Adam appears in the alternate continuity of ''Billy Batson and the Power of Shazam''. This version is a fellow schoolmate of Billy's who can nonetheless transform into the adult Black Adam.

->'''AKA:''' Adrianna Tomaz

* BackFromTheDead: She was killed by the Horseman of Pestilence, but revived by EvilSorcerer Felix Faust to torment Adam. It backfired when she castrated him with her bare hands.
* CorruptTheCutie. Having her home destroyed, being killed, being resurrected to be used as a sex slave by Felix Faust, being turned to stone, and being resurrected again definitely ruined any sunny outlook she originally had about life.
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: "O Mighty Isis!" or "I am Isis!"
* CanonImmigrant: She was originally the star of a short-lived TV show from the '70s, though the comic version bears little resemblance to the original. This is because DC doesn't own the rights to the TV series version of the character, but have the loophole that the name "Isis" is in the public domain.

* HeelFaceRevolvingDoor: Currently good.
* KnightTemplar: After her resurrection. To the point she declared Kahndaq a closed state to all foreign influence with the consequence of foreign intrusion being another World War III event caused by her.
* MindOverMatter
* MoralityPet: She used to be this for Adam by encouraging him to use his powers to improve his country and placating his temper when he gets wrathful, but her eventual last words that Adam was correct in his vicious approach and that he should obtain vengeance before her death after Kahndaq was attacked terminated that status.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge
* TakenForGranite: Unlike Adam, she was freed from this fate.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: Not originally, but she slips into genocidal mode after Black Adam frees her from Felix Faust's control. After Osiris reverts her back to normal from her stone state, she keeps slipping back from maniacal to good until Osiris is able to get her back to sanity.

* AxCrazy: What he became.
* BackFromTheDead: Thanks to the White Light in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight''.
* ByThePowerOfGreyskull: "Black Adam!"
* EvilCounterpart: In a sense and then played straight. He started out as the Black Marvel Family's answer to Captain Marvel Jr. but wasn't a bad person. Then when he died and came back he gradually became more selfish and prone to violence until he basically became the Marvel Family's answer to Superboy-Prime.
* FaceHeelTurn: No longer cares who he kills or how many so long as he gets results.
* {{Flanderization}}: Started out as a NaiveNewcomer unaware of the stigma attached to Black Adam. Then became disillusioned and feared he was cursed by Adam's power before he was killed by his seeming friend Sobek. After his undead heroic sacrifice in ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' he became the TokenGoodTeammate of Slade's mercenary team before gradually become self-deluded, completely selfish, and completely willing to spill blood to get what he wants.
* IgnoredEpiphany: In a sense. After being revived as a Black Lantern, Amon was somehow in control of his mind and body, and managed to pull a heroic sacrifice stopping Black Lantern Sobek. Then he came back from the dead and helped killed Ryan Choi.
