Black Adam’s daughter makes a deal with the Egyptian god Set. so his powers from Egyptian deities – rather than Captain Marvel’s Greek influenced. Why does this make Adam so evil and Cap so good?
He has the mentality of a warrior... from Ancient egypt, different morals for different times.
It's retarded to think the good guys of the past would share the same morals as us. Guys like george washington would be considered war criminals, and stalin was a good guy compared with Alexander the great.
>stalin was a good guy compared with Alexander the great.
>Communism ever being the good guys
WOW, IT SURE IS RED IN THIS THREAD.
Don't get me wrong, I love fuck out of Adam. It's just that he always responds to force with force, never thinking it out.
Also, I kill for ongoing with Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Fate and Adam.
Ok, listen here kids when George Washington fought the Indians to free the slaves after the British banished them he would be considered a villain today because the Illuminati is tricking the masses to support Isis and get gay married. So in this upcoming election don't vote for the wrong guy.
Maybe it's because billy has powers of gods AND mortals and thus thinks of himself as "the worlds mightiest mortal" where as Adam does not?
But the wall is just a make work project for all the unemployed and could become a tourist icon.
Although I fail to understand what a wall can do that a fence can't, assuming that the fence and wall will recieve similar levels of guarding supervision.
It's just as you says, I even remember a friend telling me of some comicbooks where Black Adam even has some friendly chats with Wonder Woman due to them having similar moral codes (I.E. Warrior Codes)
Imagine a bloodthirsty brown-skinned musclegirl Shazam with:
Zenenet I guess but actually I'm not sure that Egyptian hieroglyphics correspond to this letter
Ammut (Astarte also an option)
Meretseger (Ma'at, Mafdet and Mut all good alternatives)
That would be my fetish.
I have said it once and I'll say it again.
Suddenly, a bunch of new Shazams appear, one for each pantheon, in a tournament to become king of the gods. Each pantheon has its champion and something something it'll be awesome trust me.
Are you retarded? It's only an American who would raise hackles about this. Shit how fucking long was Egypt ruled by a Greek dynasty for? Fucking Herodotus wrote about the parallels in the Greek and Egyptian deities. Egyptian and Indian sculpture are both influenced by and influence Greek sculpture in the appropriate period.
He conducts and guides the souls of the dead though the afterlife. Hermes was also a psychopomp, so sometimes he and Anubis were equated instead of Hermes and Thoth. Hermes is speed, therefore by analogy Anubis is also speed.
Hell, Hesiod explicitly links the Egyptian and Greek pantheon together in the Theogony as almost everyone flees to Egypt during a battlle. Apollo becomes a hawk and that's Hours, Aphrodite becomes a cow and that's Hathor, etc.
he wasn't evil because of his pantheon, he was evil because he was a king who would use his power to any extent to help his people
then he got the ability to shoot fuckin lazers and bench press bitches in his way
its why he's portrayed as an "antihero" in comics alot, specifically that run where him osiris and isis fight the 4 horsemen
while it was theoretically always possible, one of the good things nu52 did, was show the other wizards who worked with wizard shazam, all of them of different races but with the same power as him
its 100% viable, even moreso now, that there at lest WAS a norse shazam
I hope it leads to a more interesting Ibac. Ibac is a great fun villain in the old days, but I always felt he had more potential than he ever used. Then again, I really just want more Captain Marvel villains besides Sivana, Black Adam and Mr. Mind.
If you live in a society you either adapt to that societies rules or you piss off. Saying that we shouldn't hold someone from the past to our modern standards is like saying immigrants shouldn't have to adapt to western ideals when they move to America or England. It's stupid. If Black Adam doesn't like modern morals then he can just piss off to space and find an alien planet where he's more comfortable.
