Is Black Adam more powerful than Superman?
It has been more than six years since Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, was confirmed to play Black Adam in the DC Extended Universe. Johnson has earlier talked about how excited he is to play the role of the Kahndaqian anti-hero. Both Black Adam and Superman have similar abilities.
On the red carpet of the MTV Movie & TV Awards, Johnson was asked if Black Adam is more powerful than Superman?
“Black Adam has the same powers as Superman. Think about that. That is why it is so cool and exciting”Said Dwayne Johnson.
While in terms of strength, durability, and flight, both Superman and Black Adam are equal. However, they do not have all the same powers. In the comics created by Otto Binder and C.C. Beck, Black Adam first appeared in The Marvel Family. He received his powers from the wizard Shazam, the speed of heru, the stamina of Shu, the strength of Amon, the power of Aton, the wisdom of Zehuti, and the courage of Mehen. Superman obtains his powers from the yellow sun of Earth. It gives him skills like x-ray vision, heat vision and super breath. On the other hand, Black Adam magically intensifies, like his nemesis Shazam. So clearly, Black Adam is more powerful than Superman.
