In ancient Kahndaq, Teth Adam was granted the almighty powers of the gods. After using them to get revenge, he was imprisoned, becoming Dark Adam. Almost 5,000 years have passed since then and Dark Adam has gone from man, to myth, to legend. Once freed, his unique form of justice, born of rage, is challenged by the modern heroes who form the Justice Society: Hawkman, Dr. Fate, Atom Smasher and Cyclone.
