Dwayne Johnson has announced that Black Adam will feature a new superhero team. He stated that Black Adam presents the “world to JSA”.
What is the JSA?
The JSA stands for The Justice Society of America. If you are contenting about well know Justice League faces, you maybe get a little bit saddened. The Justice League and Justice Society are two very different teams, but their names were apparently alike.
To complicate things, the various personification of the team trait contemporaries of superheroes who embrace their role from parents, godparents, instructors, etc.
This looks like the timelines and names get very complicated, but we have done our best to extract what we think will appear in the Black Adam film here.
During the various comics, the Justice Society has added Doctor Fate, Doctor Mid-Nite, Flash, Hawkgirl, Hawkman, Green Lantern, Mister Terrific, Power Girl, Sandman and Star-Spangled Kid at the slightest. However, for the Black Adam film, not all of these figures will possibly perform a role.
Furthermore, there have already been reports that early screenplay adds Hawkman, but this has not been authenticated. Nevertheless, we have some information about Black Adam and his work with the Justice Society of America.
Some significant details about Black Adam
The 21st-century version of the comics has seen Black Adam reboot from super-villain to anti-hero by authors Jerry Ordway, Geoff Johns, and David S Goyer. Johns and Goyer also wrote The Justice Society of America comics from 1999 through 2006.
The book pair modified Black Adam’s origin story for their comics. In their story, he appears from the fictional North African nation of Kahndaq and follows an Egyptian prince called Khufu, aka Hawkman.
This could be how the film projects to bind in the JSA to Black Adam’s origin story, by accommodating Goyer and Johns’ story of the anti-hero. This will also more bind Black Adam into the Worlds of DC.
Whether the Black Adam origin story can connect all the characters without mixing, well, everyone appears extremely doubtful.
More likely is a post-credits cameo scene which opens us to the JSA, teasing imminent movies with Dwayne Johnson at their core. Black Adam hit cinemas on December 22 in 2021.
