1 Comment

It’s time to take a look at the most high profile (at the moment anyway) member of the Shazam family tree: Black Adam.  Tune in as we take a look at 1945’s “The Mighty Marvels Join Forces!” from Marvel Family #1.

For a digital copy of the issue along with some companion material check out the companion post for preview of Episode 11.

    Really loved this podcast! It’s very interesting and you bring up some questions and points I hadn’t thought of or noticed. I totally agree with you that Black Adam is a villain, not a misunderstood anti-hero. You asked for the issue when Black Adam returns, that was in Shazam! #28 where Sivana brings him back using his resurrection machine. http://captainmarveladventures.blogspot.com/2016/03/the-source-of-black-adams-powers.html

    I have an observation about Black Adam’s demise. If you watch the original Mummy movie with Boris Karloff, the Mummy meets a very similar fate – the magic scroll that keeps him alive is destroyed and he ages rapidly! I’m wondering if Fawcett borrowed that for Black Adam’s defeat.
