Besides Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, DC fans also got to witness the oldest superhero squad, the Justice Society of America, and immediately took a strong liking to one of the members of the group, Doctor Fate. One of the strongest superheroes, Doctor Fate’s power is no short of unmatched. But there has to be someone who could make the superhero taste the bitterness of defeat, right?
Whether or not there’s someone who can outmatch Doctor Fate, is still not certain, but Dwayne Johnson is inclined to believe that one particular superhero might just be “the one” to have the strength and capability to do so.
The Rock claims Batman could defeat Doctor Fate
Although the superhero character of Kent Nelson has been a part of DC comics for ages, Pierce Brosnan‘s Doctor Fate in Black Adam has been depicted in a slightly different light with a relatively more distinct backstory.
A formidable mystic hero, Doctor Fate is one of the oldest superheroes in the history of DC comics and retains various unique powers and abilities, including those of teleportation, flight, telepathy, and obviously, a hell lot of strength. So, he isn’t just any sorcerer. He is the best of the best.
In a recent clip that was posted on Twitter, Black Adam stars, Dwayne Johnson, Noah Centineo, and Aldis Hodge are seen indulging in a conversation about the almighty Doctor Fate, and whether or not there is someone strong enough to outdo him.
Hodge, who plays the role of Hawkman in the film, claims that Brosnan’s Doctor Fate is a highly ferocious superhero and can’t be defeated by anyone else, courtesy of his “god-level power.” “Who’s standing up against Doctor Fate?” the American actor noted rhetorically. “I don’t know. Who’s on your level, I’m just saying.”
To this, The Rock had just the perfect response as he said, “but what if Batman showed up?” Sure, Bruce Wayne is as indestructible and jam-packed with power as they come. But would he be able to win a battle against Doctor Fate? Johnson looked sure enough, but it’s still a risky bet to place with both of them being two of the most potent superheroes in the DCEU.
Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate in Black Adam
Doctor Fate along with his other members including Hawkman, Cyclone, and Atom Smasher, all belong to the oldest superhero team of DC. And each superhero from this golden squad is intimidating and impressive in their own way.
While Hawkman is popular for his reincarnation powers and super-human speed and Cyclone has the crafty ability to manipulate one of the most dangerous forces of nature, the wind, to her own will, Doctor Fate is that superhero who stands out amongst everyone else. And that isn’t simply because of his mind-reading abilities or magical powers; he’s just one of those who when enter a room full of people, end up captivating everyone there.
In the movie too, Pierce Brosnan seems to have fit in the character’s footsteps effortlessly which made the superhero all the more intriguing and spectacular.
Black Adam is now playing at cinemas.
