Character Power – Orbs of Seth (Circle/B)

Black Adam summons three orbs of pure lightning that revolve around his body. They explode and cause damage when enemies touch them. Be wary, they will disappear if Black Adam is hit.

Supermove – SHAZAM (R2+L2/RT+LT)

Black Adam flies across the screen to grab the enemy, who are able to block the attack. If Black Adam successfully grabs his enemy, he throws him through a portal and into a pyramid. Adam then drags him atop the pyramid where he shouts ‘SHAMZAM,’ summoning a massive lightning bolt to strike the enemy and cause the pyramid to explode.
