Black Adam's Powers

#1 Edited by Nightshade50 (75 posts) - - Show Bio

I can't really find some accurate descriptions of Black adam's powers, so i think it's time i asked this.... how far do his powers go? i mean i know superman can survive a million nuclear warheads, so can someone tell me what black adam's most impressive feats are for: 
 

  • Strength
  • Stamina
  • senses
  • Healing
  • Or any other feats
 
Thanks in advance. 
 
Optional: Oh and, and to what degree does the power of Isis Strengthen his existing abilities?

@614azrael: I believe that was when he was temporarily upgraded by a mother box.

@Nightshade50: BTW, I'm pretty sure Black Adam outmatches Superman in almost every category, or thats at least what most people say on the vine.

He's survived worse than that though.

@AtPhantom: I know he has, but he was hit by an explosion the size of a million nuclear warheads when fighting HP Doomsday and he was upgraded by Mother Box. I can't find the scans though.

@Deranged Midget: Thats why i never got into superman, a million nuclear warheads? Were did this ocur? On earth? Isnt the power of such a blast enough to practicly obliterate a sun? Thats also should leave basicly any character as dust. Im unsure if Black Adam beets SM i dout it though just because i dont think DC is willing to be that bold(no offence to any DC fans just personal opinion)

@614azrael: No, Black Adam is significantly stronger than Superman and not to mention his magic background makes it harder for the Man of Steel to fight him due to his weakness to magic.

@Deranged Midget: I stand corected again, my opinion however still stands that SM surviving that is crossing the line of idiocracy. I can understand a character powered by magic or cosmic forces,a ability specified as anti radiation an so on but SM is overpowered an its never really even with just cause. Again however this is mearly opinion

@614azrael: Well Superman has survived a Supernova basically exploding in his face and all it did was momentarily knock him out. I'm pretty sure many people underestimate Superman's durability.

@Deranged Midget: I just was unaware it was that xtensive. I dont question it mearly have a spite against it. I find they make him to powerful for there own good. Dose Black Adam beat him? Granted im sure Supermans wins are more sence hes the hero
#13 Posted by Deranged Midget (17599 posts) - - Show Bio
@614azrael: I'm going to say Black Adam has a slight edge over Superman since he's beaten Captain Marvel who is more or less Supermans equal. BUT, I wouldn't count Superman out these days. He could do some serious damage to Black Adam, but any win he's had over him in the past has probably been PIS.

@614azrael: You have a basic knowledge of DC characters which is good, keep expanding it and you'll be an excellent debater on this site.

@Deranged Midget: thx, i find it important to atleast have a basic briefing over a character before joining any debate. i find it anoying when i come across someone who simply ruits for a character without at least looking a litle into the oposing one

@614azrael: I know exactly what you mean, the person would come into a debate with little or knowledge and just repeat the same thing over and over again.

@Deranged Midget: Superman seems faster than Black Adam. The rest of it I'll leave it up to fanboys to decide to their heart's content.

@RJMooreII: They are pretty much equal with Black Adam having a slight edge in battle due to his magic background.

@614azrael: I know, its almost as bad as all the DBZ threads, even though I am a hardcore DBZ fan, I know when something is being pushed beyond the limits. Although, DC and Marvel outrank DBZ greatly in my book.

@Deranged Midget: Ah yes DBZ threads, rout A humerous route B agrevation this is the general results. My favrite part is when logic is added an the DBZ fan still insists its imposible.

@614azrael: Indeed, which results to insulting the intelligence of every DBZ fan on this site or completely demeaning the name.

I'm bumping this because I'm really curious why Black Adam gets so much love. Can I get a direct comparison with Supes? Like an example of both of their capabilities (not just high end feats) of both side by side? People think he's stronger, more durable, faster(?) and I'd just like to see clear evidence of it.

Black Adam is one the strongest DC characters on Earth. He could take on Superman because he is magical.

Indeed.

And teth's powers are super strength, super speed, invulnerability, and flight.

But isn't Superman's set of vision powers really extensive compared to Adam's? I mean, he can essentially take lots of unhindered potshots at Adam from a great distance (Say, from the Moon or something) without Adam's effective retaliation, right? That's hard to deal with.

I still haven't seen anything for Adam......

#37 Posted by koshi_waza88 (1486 posts) - - Show Bio

Black adam has the powers of Egyptian gods this to me has never been elaborated enouph when he fights captain marvel they seem to have the same powers but thats silly as that would suggest that there gods are essentially the same in strength and knowlage... I would think adam being empowered by all gods would have an advantage over captain marvel who also draws on mortal heros such as arkillies and solomon

The Black Adam and Captain Marvel are equal (in all versions).

In PC Captain Marvel survived to the "Marvel Bomb", it that was sixteen thousand million times more powerful than the atomic bomb.

Then the Black Adam can too.
