Strength

If superman can easily lift the great pyramid (almost 6 million tons) what strength level do you give Adam?

PS I love the new Black Adam comic, they are really writing him to be the bada$$ that he should be!

"just as strong"

I was thinking that also, but I am not a DC expert so I wanted to see what others thought. Is Adam AS powerful as superman in every respect? (I saw someon post a pic on here where it appeared that Captain Marvel was actually faster than Superman so i assume Adam would be faster than him as well).

Superman is the strongest, cause he is Superman. They may show the exact same feats throughout all their comics but the moment they test their strength against each other Superman will end up being stronger even if its by a little. If its not for that I would say Superman, MM, Black Adam, and Captain Marvel are pretty much even. Oh Valkaad if the pic you are thinking of is the one I'm thinking of that was an alternate reality. They are probably even if not Superman is slightly faster.

Black Adam is possibly as strong (if not stronger) than superman. He proved it using only strength against the world's heroes and still winning

I also love that miniseries, wonder if Tomasi will write as good in Nightwing than here lol

I thought about it, but a anti-hero doesn't only battle the bad guys in a "diferent way"?

Adam fights both sides lol

He started out as a good guy.

Anti-Hero's battle both. Look at punisher he fights goodies all the time cause they see him as bad.

Black Adam is as strong as Capt Marvel is, which pretty much means that they are both as strong as Superman (or the difference is so little to mean nothing). The extebnt of Black Adama strength was seen in WWIII when Black Adam picked and hurled that ship (an aircraft carrier I think tens if not hundreds of miles at least). When you consider an aircraft carrier is around the 100,000 - 150,000 tonne mark thats a pretty impressive feat.

As for Black Adam's speed - he should be the physical equal to Capt Marvel. The comic were Capt Marvel was shown to be faster than Superman was Justice where Capt Marvel has to race to catch up to the Flash but Capt Marvel was focussing on doing no other activity so in a straight out flight race maybe he does eclipse Superman in speed as he does channel the speed of Mercury.

This whole strength question is starting to really kill me when it comes to the big hitters, I really wish the comic people would just come together and just make a super strong competition to prove what character limits are. I mean if one man lifts 500 lbs and one lifts 499lbs, does it really matter who is stronger. They are both powerhouses, honestly I want to see some all out no hold bared fights with the high class being.

Black Adam is stronger than Superman from what I've heard. He's been able to take on both Captain Marvel and Superman at the same time.

How can Superman really push himself to his full limits against Black Adam and Cap. Marvel when they are both magically powered beings.      
Superman is weak against magic, so he can't really fight at full power. The best example was in Kingdom Come when Superman after soaking the suns rays for a decade and became outrageously strong, yet still fell to Cap.Marvel because of the magic.
