Power of the Egyptian PantheonBlack Adam is gifted with a panoply of powers that appear to correspond to and match, if not exceed, those of Captain Marvel. Essentially, he is gifted with six attributes of particular gods who are exemplars of them. He is as strong, fast, durable, powerful, knowing, and as possessed of inner strength as six gods who are pinnacles of those qualities. These powers are both magical and divine in nature.
The chief distinction between the power of Captain Marvel and that of Black Adam is that Adam's powers are provided by the Egyptian, rather than the Greek, pantheon. Presumably, the two are nearly equal in power, though it is conceivable that one god might be more potent than another (an interesting note is that Solomon, Achilles, and Hercules - three of Marvel's patrons, were originally at least half mortal). Moreover, Adam has had centuries more experience with his powers than most super-beings, and is an accomplished and iron-willed combatant even without his powers.
S for the Stamina of ShuUsing Shu's endurance, Black Adam can withstand and survive most types of extreme physical assaults. Additionally, he does not need to eat or breathe and can survive unaided in space. He is impervious to bullets and all known man-made weaponry, leaving only beings of sufficient strength or magical weapons to harm him.
H for the Swiftness of HorusHorus' speed allows Black Adam to move, think, and react at speeds greater than FTL. His speed grants him the illusion of short distance teleportation when in combat. Horus' also grants Adam the ability of flight.
A for the Strength of AmonBlack Adam has phenomenal levels of super strength that rank him as one of the strongest beings on Earth, able to effortlessly shatter mountains, punch through forcefields and lift massive objects with little difficulty. Black Adam's strength is enough that he can at least lift and throw 100 tons over several miles while in a weakened state. The true depth of his strength has never been seen, as he can call upon Amon to grant him 'everything'.
Z for the Wisdom of ZehutiBlack Adam has instant access to a vast level of scholarly knowledge. The wisdom of Zehuti also gives Black Adam clairvoyance and provides him with counsel and advice in times of need. It also blesses him with Eidetic Memory, superb tactics of war, and extensive knowledge of mathematics.
A for the Power of AtonAton's power, besides fueling the magic thunderbolt that transforms Black Adam, also enhances his other physical abilities and allows for inter-dimensional travel. Adam is capable of creating magical lightning from his body, primarily from his hands, and use the energy to attack foes. In addition, the 'Shazam' thunderbolt produced by Aton can be dodged and used to strike opponents, normally obliterating them. Aton's magics also allow him access to the Rock of Eternity.
M for the Courage of MihosThis aspect is physical and partly psychological, and gives Black Adam superhuman amounts of inner strength to draw off from, while also making him indestructible to harm like the great lion itself. Maahes blesses Adam with several favors, namely being accelerated healing through the use of his lightning, an incredible amount of willpower that grants him perseverance in overwhelming odds, and great resistance to telepathic intrusions and mind control. Adam's Divine Grace grants him extraordinary luck and guidance that allows finesse in all actions. Finally, immortality is his for as long as he remains in his empowered form.
If there's one aspect of his personality that Black Adam is famous for, it's his arrogance. This reputation is not entirely undeserved. Black Adam is quite arrogant, haughty and dismissive of all but the most powerful of threats. Adam is also quite educated and worldly and the additional wisdom of Zehuti grants him considerable intelligence and cunning. He houses within a terrible rage, but the full extent of that has only ever been seen once, when his original family was murdered by the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Despite this, he's been shown to be kind in a way, and absolutely intolerable of slavery.He is, however, somewhat xenophobic. As the sovereign of Kahndaq, Black Adam tends to place the needs of his people and his nation above everything else, and does not concern himself with worldwide threats until those threats pose harm to Kahndaq. He is no diplomat, distrusting politicians and ambassadors, and as a result his country is largely isolationist in policy. Although not known for his natural charm, Black Adam has an aura of authority and leadership about him. He leads by example, and is always at the front of a charge. He truly cares for those under his command, and his followers are to a man unswervingly loyal to him. Black Adam's bearing is forceful, even regal, and he tends to float just above the ground whenever speaking. His eyes gaze upon most people with a disdainful, and he is coldly reserved to those he does not believe he should be even talking to. Indeed, he is the sort of man who does not even need to raise his fists to achieve victory; He's one of those people who can wither you with a look; who can make you feel like you're lower than dirt without even touching you. He does not take 'insolence' lightly, and has no notion of mercy in regards to the guilty - criminals are to be executed, not rehabilitated.
Black Adam is formidable and statuesque. He has an incredibly gifted physique, a square chin, and a chiseled, handsome face. His hair is short and black, while his brown eyes are deep and dark, seeming to draw in the object of their attention. He is a man who could truly be described as tall, dark, and handsome, with the only thing that takes away from his good looks being his cold expression and arrogant demeanor. He has no known scars. One unusual and distinctive feature about Black Adam are his ears – pointed like an elves’, they are extremely distinctive, and quite unmistakable. Though Black Adam very rarely needs or wishes to travel incognito, if and when he were to do so his ears would be by far his biggest giveaway.
