Even though I never cared about the character, Black Adam has a pretty cool in-game persona and fighting style in the Injustice series. I still can't say I'm a fan of his visual design in terms of uniqueness or excitement (he's just a Superman clone after all, in a similar way to Mortal Kombat's ninjas)... but nonetheless, I'm sure Black Adam is more interesting to DC fans.

I never imagined over a decade after creating this profile for Black Adam, that I'd have to come back to it and comment about THE ROCK. If ya smeeeeee..... you know the drill. The Rock put on a good performance and all, but I wasn't blown away by the movie. And still, after all these years, I don't like Black Adam's costume. I like the artwork below, though!
