Black Adam was the original student of Shazam the Wizard, who was banished away to the farthest corners of the universe for his pride. He eventually returned to the Rock of Eternity, aiming to take his revenge on the Wizard, seizing his throne. When Shazam tried to send his new champion, Billy Batson, against Black Adam, the villainous sorcerer used a sphere to take over Shazam's magic for himself. His powers doubled, Black Adam dethroned his old master and took Billy hostage, then released the ancient Djinns upon the Earth. As Shazam walked upon the Earth, trying to return to the Rock, he was assisted by Gotham City vigilante Batman. Together, Shazam and Batman fought against Black Adam and managed to release the source of Billy's powers, while Shazam took his throne back and banished Black Adam to the ancient times. Black Adam would wait for thousands of years to come back to the present, finally released by the Djinn, but ended up defeated by the Justice League.
