Black Adam, anti-hero or villain

#1 Posted by Dream Omen (261 posts) - - Show Bio

Black Adam is one of my most favorite DC characters, and the more I read about him, the more hes interesting. He can be brutal, but he can be generous. He really cares about his people. He really loves Isis. He shared his own power with her and her brother. Even if it meant making him weaker. But is he a villain or anti-hero?? What do you think??

He's not a villain. If anything I guess you can call him an anti-hero, but not a villain.

He's a Namor clone, so Anti-hero.

@GreenLantern555:  I agree. Even after everything he did, during WW3 event. He was aware it was a bad thing. He was just very, very angry.

He looks like Namor, he acts like Namor, he rules a nation, he doesn't care much for the rest of the world, etc.
 
The only very slight difference is that Namor is usually an anti-hero who is occasionally an honorable villian, while Black Adam is an honorable villain who is occasionally an anti-hero.

Then there's the fact that Black Adam's powers and origin are entirely different....
