The DC Comics universe is full of powerful superheroes and villains, making it difficult to decide who is the mightiest of them all. To determine this, we will look at three of the strongest characters in the DC universe: Black Adam, Superman, and Shazam. Each has their own unique set of powers and abilities that make them formidable opponents.


Generally speaking, Superman is often portrayed as the strongest of the three. He possesses a wide range of powers including flight, superhuman strength, speed, durability, and heat vision, among others. His strength is also fueled by exposure to yellow sunlight, making him nearly invincible on Earth.


Let’s take a closer look at these powerful heroes and evaluate which one reigns supreme.

Black Adam

Black Adam is an ancient Egyptian sorcerer who was originally chosen by the wizard Shazam as his successor before being corrupted by power. After centuries of slumber, he was resurrected and became one of Superman’s most powerful enemies. He possesses superhuman strength, speed, durability and flight. He can also absorb magical energy to increase his powers even further. His signature move is the lightning blast which can take out multiple enemies with a single blow.



The Man of Steel himself needs no introduction – he’s arguably the single most famous superhero in comic book history. Superman derives his powers from Earth’s yellow sun and boasts superhuman strength, speed, invulnerability to physical harm, flight and heat vision among other abilities. He can also use his super breath to create powerful gusts of wind or freeze objects with a cold front generated from his lungs.



Billy Batson was chosen by the wizard Shazam to be his successor when he was just a young boy living on the streets of Fawcett City. After uttering the wizard’s name — SHAZAM (an acronym for Solomon’s wisdom; Hercules’ strength; Atlas’ stamina; Zeus’ power; Achilles’ courage; Mercury’s speed) — Billy transforms into the adult superhero Shazam! With this transformation comes access to incredible powers such as super strength, durability and speed as well as enhanced senses such as x-ray vision and superhuman hearing among others. He also has access to magic spells such as lightning bolts that can be used for both offense and defense purposes.



So who is stronger between Black Adam, Superman or Shazam? It depends on what situation they are in since each character has their own unique strengths and weaknesses that make them formidable opponents against each other in different scenarios.

For example if Black Adam had access to magical energy then he could potentially be more powerful than both Superman or Shazam combined due to his ability to absorb it whereas if it were a physical fight then Superman would likely win (due to his superior strength).

Ultimately it comes down to personal preference but you can’t deny that any one of these three superheroes would make an impressive ally in any battle!
