One aspect of Black Adam that has fans anticipating its arrival is the DC Extended Universe debut of the Justice Society of America. The team has appeared in live action before, in projects like Smallville and Stargirl, but this will be the big screen debut for team. The roster includes some fan favorites with Hawkman and Doctor Fate leading this new era of heroes alongside Atom Smasher and Cyclone. Some merchandise for the film from the ever popular Funko Pops has provided our best look at the team.
Perhaps one of the film’s most exciting additions is Kent Nelson, aka Doctor Fate, who’ll be played by former 007, Pierce Brosnan. Some fans were a bit puzzled to see the character seem to not have eye holes in his helmet, which the Pop figure confirms, and shows off some interesting dents and scratches. The suit is also oddly grey, which is strange since footage has seemingly revealed a blue suit.
The Pops also give the first clear look at Cyclone, who we’ve only seen minimally and not in action. The suit looks to react to her abilities, when she conjures wind it seems to react and open, its a quite impressive modernization of the character’s costumes and even keeps some of the pinstripes we’ve seen in the comics.
Albert Rothstein makes his DCEU debut in a costume so accurate to the comics that it even includes the white eyes that many want to see on a live-action Batsuit.
Finally, Funko has revealed Hawkman in all his glory, sporting the winged helmet and glorious wings briefly seen to expand in the DC 2022 film promo. The Pop also includes Hawkman’s magic mace, a staple with both him and Hawkgirl.
All Black Adam Pops are available for purchase now, and perfectly timed as fans can expect the first trailer for Black Adam next week on June 8th.
