Black Adam Returns in This Shazam #5 Preview

Avengers: Endgame continues to dominate the box office, but there's another recently-released superhero movie in theaters now too, and a comic book series alongside it. DC Comics has released a preview for Shazam #5, by Geoff "Jeff" Johns and Dale Eaglesham, but the titular hero isn't front and center in this preview. Instead, it's Black Adam you can see below.

DC's press release provides what you need to to get caught up:

Let's not forget, the last time Shazam and Black Adam fought—in Geoff Johns and Gary Frank's Shazam!: Origins—Black Adam was defeated, and he's harbored some serious resentment for Billy ever since. But could his hatred actually be merited? Black Adam feels Billy is acting carelessly and meddling in dangerous things he doesn't fully understand. And from what we've seen of the Magiclands, he may be right. Even the most innocent-sounding ones have proven to be full of threats…and we haven't even seen the Monsterlands yet. In this exclusive first look at Wednesday's Shazam! #5, Black Adam makes his intentions known proving that even if Billy does manage to escape the Funlands, his problems are just beginning…

Check out the preview below. Shazam #5 is in stores on Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
