Black Adam Return of Black Adam

Five millenia ago, Teth-Adam was a prince in Ancient Egypt. Chosen by the wizard Shazam to carry on his crusade against the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man, Teth-Adam became a conduit of the amazing power of the Egyptian gods. For many years, he protected the human race from evil, but in time, became consumed by his powers. He conquered his people and was worshiped as a god himself. Disgusted in his student's actions, Shazam banished Teth-Adam to the farthest star in the sky. Kept alive by his powers, Teth-Adam spent the next 5,000 years trying to get home.
