Christopher Priest actually does something fairly uncommon with Malik White, who allegedly inherits Black Adam’s power. The character gets injected with a lot of “witty banter,” yet manages to be fairly entertaining, as opposed to annoying.
I don’t know much about Black Adam’s recent history, and my interest in the new movie is relatively low. But Priest, Sandoval, and this team have nonetheless created something that’s captured my interest. Here’s hoping they can sustain it for 10 more issues.
