The Plot of Black Adam. What will happen in it?

If you are a DC fan and have read the novel, you must know about the character Teeth-Adam’s or Black Adam. If you are unaware, let me introduce you to it. He is a widely known villain from the DC comic universe. He was a human living in khanda. The-Ton, a DC villain, destroyed the town and killed his family except his kind-hearted nephew and him. Shazams are superheroes who have the power of six Egyptian gods. Shazam is an acronym for the name of those six Gods. Black Adam’s dishonesty became a shazam. He misused his superpowers to take revenge on Ahk-Ton. However, Shazam’s powers can only be used to save humanity and not for its destruction. The act of Black Adam was sinful in the eyes of gods. They imprisoned him for 5000 years.
