1. After both his Deathstroke and Black Panther I frankly can't think of a better fit for a BA book than Priest, definitely looking forward to seeing what this creative team does with the character.

  2. One of the best things Priest did for DS was not hold back that he was a villain or make the reader feel sympathy for him. It wasn’t the #1 rebirth book at the time but it was definitely interesting and stable.

  3. That and Sandoval won't be underutilized being on a book like TTA with a writer in Sheridan. That first issue I was pretty blown away by the art, and now it's paired with a fantastic writer.

  4. I haven’t been a fan of Black Adams recent push, but I heard great things about priest and his Deathstroke seemed pretty good, so I’ll give this a chance.

  5. Didn't really care for this, after reading Shazam and Bendis just writing Black Adam. BUT Priest writing it? Will really make this very interesting for sure, hoping they'll just drop the Future State stuffs though.

  6. Can anyone give me the over-under on who exactly Black Adam is? I don't know much about the Captain Marvel/Shazam corner of the DC universe. I thought he was like the evil Captain Marvel, but he's apparently getting his own movie and he was a member of the JSA?

  7. He was originally the evil Captain Marvel, but has evolved into an anti-hero/anti-villain in recent years who leads his own country and exercises a more brutal, ancient form of justice. He joined the JSA to improve his reputation, but eventually fell out due to ethical disagreements.

  8. Not unexpected that DC would give us a Black Adam title to coincide with the new movie. Suprised it's an ongoing and not a 12 issue Black Label project.

  9. I don’t think he was ever on the roster set to die in DotJL. That’s Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern (Johm Stewart), Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Zatanna, and probably the Flash (Barry Allen) since they’re trying to save him.

  10. Man Priest must be having the time of his life here. He got to write Deathstroke, US Agent, Vampirella, and now Black Adam.

  11. Everyone here is praising Priest and forgot that he wrote garbage arc with JL . I don't get the hype when he'll make Adam transfer his powers to another person.
