For those who don’t know, the villain has had several alter-egos over the years, but rumors have pointed out that the version of ‘Black Adam’ will be Ishmael Gregor, who made his comic book debut Outsider #8created by Judd Winick and Tom Raney in 2004.
Gregor was a Russian immigrant obsessed with the demon Sabbac and travels to New York after discovering that the beast’s powers were under the sway of Timothy Karnes, who is basically an evil version of Shazam!
