Injustice: Year One

Black Adam fights several members of the Justice League in Kahndaq after a country fires a shell into his domain. In a frenzy, Black Adam goes on a killing rampage and destroys the town he believes the shell was fired from. He rips off Cyborg's arm before being apprehended by Wonder Woman and Superman. Diana bounds Teth-Adam with her Lasso of Truth in order to ask Adam if there is a way for him to stop killing people. Adam says that nothing will stop him, and tells Shazam that he is choosing the same path as Adam: he will bring peace to his world through fear. Diana forces Adam to say his magic word, Shazam!, changing him back into Teth-Adam. He survives the transformation, but cannot speak his word to change back to Black Adam after Diana covers his mouth.

Injustice: Gods Among Us

Black Adam appears to the Insurgents in their base alongside Wonder Woman, intending to destroy them. Regime Wonder Woman is defeated by Green Arrow, who then proceeds to assist in taking Black Adam down. When the Insurgents bring Teth-Adam to the ground, he unleashes a lightning shockwave leaving only Oliver standing. Ollie proceeds to defeat Adam, and he leaves the base.

Later, when the alternate Superman arrives, Teth-Adam hurls cars at the Kryptonian to try and weaken him. When this fails, the two fight and Kal-El emerges as the winner. Before he can retaliate, Superman freezes Black Adam with his frost breath.

This section of history takes place in a timeline outside that of normal Injustice: Gods Among Us history. Information here does not reflect the true history of neither the Injustice: Gods Among Us universe nor the Injustice: The Regime universe, and should not be seen as relevant to future sequels or comic adaptations.

The defeat of Superman taught Black Adam one thing: most of Earth's denizens were too weak to adopt Kahndaq's visionary form of government. He returned to his homeland with a new plan.

Combining their energies, Black Adam and his empress, Isis, created a mystical barrier around Kahndaq. There, they reigned in peace. Their country, an oasis in the wasteland of human civilization. A true oasis, once Black Adam destroyed all other life on Earth.

Before Brainiac

Black Adam and Wonder Woman are shown in Kahndaq, training Supergirl, who had recently arrived to Earth, telling her about how lost the world is without her cousin to protect it. When Brainiac invades, the three opt to go free Superman.

Brainiac's Invasion

During the invasion, Black Adam and Nightwing are shown in the Fortress of Solitude protecting Superman as he recharges in the solartarium. When Supergirl arrives questioning why Diana almost killed Harley, Superman tried to explain his world views, horrifying the girl. On orders of Superman, Nightwing and Black Adam fight Supergirl with the Girl of Steel coming out victorious both times.

Black Adam is one of two playable characters in the tenth chapter of the game, The Three Kings, the other being Aquaman. In this chapter, the two come up with the idea to charge Aquaman's trident with the power of the Rock of Eternity to penetrate the shield covering Brainiac's ship. Because of this, Brainiac is made aware of Kahndaq's location and sends Gorilla Grodd to bring back a fragment of the rock to study magic. The player then uses one of the two characters to fight Black Canary, Green Arrow, and Blue Beetle, all of which are under Grodd's mind control, before fighting Grodd himself. After Grodd's death, the two charge the trident, destroying the shield.

After Brainiac's defeat at the hands of both Superman and Batman, Black Adam sides with Superman once more, believing he can control the ship. The heroes are divided once more, where after subduing Supergirl, Black Adam is defeated in combat by Batman.

Black Adam Injustice 2 Epilogue

"I returned to find Kahndaq devastated from Brainiac's attack. My beloved queen was dead. I brought her broken body to the Lazarus Pits, intent on her resurrection. But my entry was barred by Ra's al Ghul. He offered a trade: access to the Pits in exchange for my aid in bringing him to power. Ra's admired Superman's regime, but felt it should have gone further. While I have no love for Ra's, I accepted his terms. I will pay any price to again feel the embrace of my dearest wife."
