#WEOPPOSEBLACKADAM AND ASYLUM FOR CRIMINALS
In Doomsday Clock, Prime Earth is divided by the Supermen Theory. In fact, 97 percent of metahumans on Earth are of American nationality. According to the theory, their existence is due to a superhuman arms race between governments. As a result, many nations have created their own superhuman teams. Notably, Russia has created the “People’s Heroes.” Indeed, their objective is to defend against “America’s manufactured metahumans.”1 Furthermore, the Justice Leaguer Firestorm has been angered at his purported links to the theory.
In Doomsday Clock (2018) #5, Black Adam makes a public announcement. As Batman intercepts Adrian Veidt in the Owlship, the police pursue in the air. In fact, Veidt is wanted for the purported assassination attempt on Lex Luthor. As the Owlship hurtles down after being hit, Batman watches the Black Adam report. Sinisterly, the former JSAer invites all persecuted metahumans to Kandhaq for asylum. Though a welcome gesture, we suspect it was to build Kandhaq’s own metahuman criminal army. Hence, #WeOpposeBlackAdam and asylum for criminals.
AGAINST BLACK ADAM: HE HARBORED KNOWN SUPERVILLAINS AND VIOLATED THE AGREEMENT AMONG NATIONS
In Doomsday Clock (2019) #8, Firestorm accidentally commits terror. Illegally, Firestorm enters Russia’s airspace to clear his name. When the “People’s Heroes” confront him, Ronnie accidentally turns civilians into glass. Then, he escapes. In Metropolis, Clark and Lois watch the news report. Immediately, Clark changes into Superman and heads for Kandhaq.
There, he greets Black Adam and is in search of Firestorm. Quickly, he notices the Creeper and Giganta. Clearly, Black Adam is harboring known supervillains. Sternly, Superman scolds the head of state for his breach. Specifically, it is the agreeent for metahumans to not cross any nations’ borders without sanction. In addition, Black Adam metes out justice without due process. For his part, Superman is the only hero authorized to cross nations’ borders.

FOR BLACK ADAM: HE OFFERED ASYLUM TO SLAVES ON KANDHAQ
In Doomsday Clock (2019) #8, Black Adam reveals he is also harboring slaves he freed. Among them, is a youg boy named Nabil Azmah. As a metahuman, his codename is Sandstorm. With his sand powers, the Syrian boy frees children slaves in Syria.
Though, Black Adam is not really a humanitarian nor activist. As a head of state, he defends the Supermen Theory. In fact, he claims some metahumans in Kandhaq were part of it. Certainly, he plans to raise his own metahuman army.
