Black Adam, Better as a Villain or Anti Hero?

I Think Adam should be more of an Anti Hero instead of a villain.

I like him more as a villain then as an anti-hero.

Anyone read the issues of JSA of Black Adam by Johns before he became another mass murderer? That's the best Adam in history

He is still badass now though

As much of a fan as I am of the old campy Captain Marvel comics, I like Black Adam having some depth to his character instead of being just "the bad Captain Marvel."

I like him as the anti-hero. He seems more like Namor now. You just don't know what side he wil be on.

Anti- heroes are cooler than villains...

I like Black Adam as an Anti Hero... he is rather cool that way... but he was tight as a Villian too though

Black Adam doesn't really sound like the name of an anti-hero does it?

Black Adam is better off as a villain because he took control of his homeland, Kahndaq with his powers. He also attacks the JSA on a regular basis. Black Adam is my favourite DC supervillain, if only the Black Marvel family were evil too.

I really like Black Adam as a viIlain but  l think Black Adam would be bad ass as an anti hero. as long as the writers keep him powerfull and dont put to much hero limitation into his character.

"Born a villain"?  I'm not sure you're really talking about Black Adam here...

He's much more interesting as an anti-hero

Villain.

He's one of those anti-heroes that turned into a brute villain.

Although, I do see him being that type of "villainous savior and protector" which he's depicted of being.

Anything BL does is awesome but I guess I'd prefer as a Anti hero

I completely agree with this. I would like to see him less as an enemy to Billy though. The whole evil counter-part angle is bland and grows tiresome quickly. I would like to see a mentor like relationship between him and Billy.

Way, WAY better as an anti-hero. He's kind of a boring villain, "GIVE ME YO' POWAH B!TCH!"

I've never really seen him as an anti-hero, if Failpoint hadn't happened then maybe he could've evolved into a more complex morality kinda like what has happened with Magneto over the years, but he never really stemmed that far away from being an evil person. I hope the character continues the way he was heading when Kahndaq starts having a bigger presence.

I like him more as a villain but he's awesome either way
