You seriously can’t make this stuff up, as now it’s claimed that the disaster known as DC Comics is going to rename Black Adam to “SHAZADAM!”
The rumor comes from Bleeding Cool who offers as part of the DC Comics “Infinite Frontier” initiative, the character of Black Adam will be changing his name to Shazadam.
It’s claimed that the reason is due in part to Black Adam looking more and more like he is a good guy and also that Black Adam will be leading the Justice League team in March from Brian Bendis.
So it appears this may be Bendis’ idea, as you can’t call Black Adam “Black” if he is a good guy, so let’s call him “Shazadam.”
It’s also unknown if this has anything to do with the Dwayne Johnson Black Adam movie as the flick is set to start filming soon and could get released at the end of the year or sometime in 2022.
Check out the Justice League info and covers below for March.
