Black Adam is a former champion of Shazam and an ally of Superman's Regime.

Year One

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us Vol 1

Black Adam fought several members of the Justice League in Kahndaq after a country fired a shell into his domain. In a frenzy, Black Adam went on a killing rampage and destroyed the town he believed the shell was fired from. He ripped off Cyborg's arm before being apprehended by Wonder Woman and Superman. Diana bound Teth-Adam with her Lasso of Truth in order to ask Adam if there was a way for him to stop killing people. Adam said that nothing will stop him, and told Shazam that he was choosing the same path as Adam: he will bring peace to his world through fear. Diana forced Adam to say his magic word, Shazam!, changing him back into Teth-Adam. He survived the transformation, but cannot speak his word to change back to Black Adam after Diana covered his mouth.

Fall of the Regime

 Main article: Injustice: Gods Among Us (Video Game)

Black Adam appeared to the Insurgents in their base alongside Wonder Woman, intending to destroy them. Regime Wonder Woman was defeated by Green Arrow, who then proceeded to assist in taking Black Adam down. When the Insurgents brought Teth-Adam to the ground, he unleashed a lightning shockwave leaving only Oliver standing. Ollie proceeded to defeat Adam, and he left the base.

Later, when the alternate Superman arrived, Teth-Adam hurled cars at the Kryptonian to try and weaken him. When this failed, the two fight and Kal-El emerged as the winner. Before he could retaliate, Superman froze Black Adam with his frost breath.

Possible Post-Regime Epilogue

This section of history takes place in a timeline outside that of normal Injustice canon.
Upon beating "Classic" mode in Injustice: Gods Among Us or "Multiverse" mode in Injustice 2 with any playable fighter, the player would receive a possible alternate ending to the game's story featuring their fighter. These alternate histories should not be seen as relevant to future sequels or comic adaptations.

Black Adam IGAU Ending 0001.JPG

The defeat of Superman taught Black Adam one thing: most of Earth's denizens were too weak to adopt Kahndaq's visionary form of government. He returned to his homeland with a new plan.

Combining their energies, Black Adam and his empress, Isis, created a mystical barrier around Kahndaq. There, they reigned in peace. Their country, an oasis in the wasteland of human civilization. A true oasis, once Black Adam destroyed all other life on Earth.

Before Brainiac

 Main article: Injustice 2 Vol 1

Following the downfall of the regime, Black Adam retreated to Kahndaq where he enjoyed immunity for the crimes he committed as long as he never left. Not long after the fall, Black Adam discovered the spaceship of Kara Zor-El, Superman's cousin whose ship had been set off course for years and never made it to Earth as expected. Adam, welcoming Kara, told her stories of the regime and her cousin, making her sympathetic to their cause and the idea of reigniting a revolution. Along with Nightwing, Adam concocted a plan to send Kara to free Wonder Woman from Themyscira in order to regain another member of their lost regime.

Brainiac's Invasion

 Main article: Injustice 2 (Video Game)

During the invasion, Black Adam and Nightwing were shown in the Fortress of Solitude protecting Superman as he recharged in the solartarium. When Supergirl arrived questioning why Diana almost killed Harley, Superman tried to explain his world views, horrifying the girl. On orders of Superman, Nightwing and Black Adam fought Supergirl with the Girl of Steel coming out victorious both times.

Black Adam was one of two playable characters in the tenth chapter of the game, The Three Kings, the other being Aquaman. In this chapter, the two came up with the idea to charge Aquaman's trident with the power of the Rock of Eternity to penetrate the shield covering Brainiac's ship. Because of this, Brainiac was made aware of Kahndaq's location and sent Gorilla Grodd to bring back a fragment of the rock to study magic. The player then uses one of the two characters to fight Black Canary, Green Arrow, and Blue Beetle, all of which are under Grodd's mind control, before fighting Grodd himself. After Grodd's death, the two charge the trident, destroying the shield.

After Brainiac's defeat at the hands of both Superman and Batman, Black Adam sides with Superman once more, believing he can control the ship. The heroes are divided once more, where after subduing Supergirl, Black Adam is defeated in combat by Batman.

Black Adam Injustice 2 Epilogue.JPG

"I returned to find Kahndaq devastated from Brainiac's attack. My beloved queen was dead. I brought her broken body to the Lazarus Pits, intent on her resurrection. But my entry was barred by Ra's al Ghul. He offered a trade: access to the Pits in exchange for my aid in bringing him to power. Ra's admired Superman's regime, but felt it should have gone further. While I have no love for Ra's, I accepted his terms. I will pay any price to again feel the embrace of my dearest wife."
