Noteworthy Issues: Knight Terrors: Black Adam #2 (August, 2023)

Black Adam keeps fighting because that's what he does.

Oh hey, Black Adam’s Knight Terrors special…I don’t even really remember what happened all that much in the first part.  Will I find the second more memorable?

Eh, not really.

Issue:  Knight Terrors: Black Adam #2, August 2023

Writer and Artist:  Jeremy Haun

The Plot:  Black Adam keeps on fighting.

Commentary:  So, what is Black Adam afraid of?  Beats me.  He gains powers.  He loses powers.  He sees his own version of the Shazam family die when Horus eats their hearts, and the talking cat is unsurprisingly unhelpful and even downright duplicitous.

That is, more or less, the entire issue.  Various things go up against Black Adam, but he just sneers and starts fighting whatever it is.  Even Death itself can’t stop Black Adam when he’s pissed, I suppose.

Oh, and the cliffhanger from part one was Batman showed up.  How?  Well, Black Adam is not completely in the dream world, so Deadman can talk to him directly.  Plus, the whole thing ends on a cliffhanger of its own when Black Adam finally meets the thing on the cover.

Yeah, I gave away the ending.  I was so bored by this one.  It’s nothing bad, but nothing good either.

Grade:  C-
