I wast trying to think of a list of beings in the DC universe who could(or had the potential to) give Black Adam a good thrashing and come out on top, but the list was rather short. Any ideas(no nigh-omnipotent or vastly powerful cosmic beings like The Spectre, please)? So far I could only come up with Martian Manhunter and Superman Prime......

I want to see this list of Gods who could take down Black Adam.  DC's character balance is just garbage.

Martian cant beat Black Adam
He tried to psionically assault him and Martian flew away into space crying like a baby

@Jx4gz: 
 
(Well like I said, Manhunter was just initially over-taken by the sheer horror and ruthlessness of Black Adam's mind. To cut a longer story shorter, he got over it, subjected Adam to his own pain and torment, and had Adam in extreme psychological anguish and extreme pain. That plus, the fact there's almost literally nothing Adam can do to counter-act Manhunter's intangability....).

(Well since it's "anyone other than a nigh-omnipotent or extremely powerful cosmic being") 
 
Zoom.

This makes no sense. If I was Black Adam, a villain in the DC universe, and I could own Superman and Captain Marvel any day of the week.   I would simply take over earth.  He's taken on the JLA to a stand still.  Simply set Manhunter on fire, break Captain Atom's suit, kick Batman's face in, and break Kal-El's neck with my magic fingers. I win.  I don't see how any character could stop him.
 
Darkseid?  I'm sure he would smack Darkseid down like a bitch.

Monarch could beat him, but the list shouldn't be that long really...........

How could he do this? Are they just gonna line up for their a$$ kicking?? Taking it one at a time??? 
There are many more teams and heroes on Earth than just the JLA.

@Th3 FlAsH 123:   Good point, but I've considered the JLA the A-Team of the DC universe.  If they don't win, nobody can.  I can't imagine the Teen Titans or Justice Society having a chance against Black Adam.
 
I think the only way to beat him is with some kind of plot of device, like Galactus and the Nullifier.

Maybe KC Supes... (if alternate versions of characters count...)?

Ghost Rider should hand him his ass and send him crying.

Lol, true, but that's not Black Adam's desire.
 
As for who could take him:
 
Zeus
Despero
Doomsday
Darkseid
Highfather
Spectre
KC Superman (Maybe)
Manhunter (he failed in 52 due to plot)
Shazam
HIghfather
Superboy Prime
Ganthet
Anti-Monitor
Imperiex
Brimstone
Neron
Doctor Fate (original)
and so on, I'm too tired to think of others...
