Before the New 52 reboot, there was the Marvel family and, later, the Black Adam family. His own version of an extension of the power of SHAZAM, Black Adam's eventual wife became Isis and her brother who would be Osiris, started as simply Adriana and Amon.
And now, with the Justice League of America #7.4: Black Adam one shot during Villains Month in September 2013, the brother and sister duo will be introduced to the New 52. Here's what editor-in-chief Bob Harras has to say about the characters' introduction, along with new art by Edgar Salazar.
"This one-shot will also serve as the New 52 introduction of two fan-favorite characters: Amon and Adriana. Amon is a militaristic fighter involved with an organization called Sons of Adam, which have been called everything from terrorists to freedom fighters – depending on which side you’re on. Meanwhile, Adriana has devoted her life to creating change in Khandaq through peaceful and non-violent means. Throughout this story, these siblings will both experience quite radical changes. But how are Amon and Adriana tied to Black Adam?"
Justice League of America #7.4: Black Adam will also, of course, follow up on Justice League #22, when Black Adam's ashes were to be scattered in Khandaq. That pesky little "death" thing will have to be dealt with for him to have a future in the New 52, after all.
