Story concept #2:
This is my second HP story idea, a crossover with DC Comics (pre-52).
Shortly after dueling Riddle at the Little Hangleton cemetery, Harry realizes he is nowhere near to being ready to face and end Voldemort's threat; and that Dumbledore has no intention of training him to be able to defeat Tom. It is then he decides to search for alternatives and turns to his godfather, knowing the Black family is renown for its unparalleled esoteric knowledge.
Few in the wizarding world realize the Black family's reputation leads back to their very beginnings and to their earliest ancestor, Teth-Adam, champion of King Khufu of the Middle Kingdom. After millennia, Adam left the mortal plane to reside within the Stone of Destiny amongst the other magical champions and his companion, Isis. Before departing, he entered a covenant with the deities which had chosen him as their avatar, according to which, any of his descendants could become avatars themselves if proven worthy. However, if they failed the tasks set for them in order to attain the divine gifts of the Egyptian pantheon, they would forfeit their very lives.
Thus, Harry embarks on a voyage of self-awareness during which he attempts and succeeds to gain the favor of each of the deities which originally entered into a covenant with the first Black as well as the goddess who empowered his bride, in order to attain the power and knowledge necessaries to thwart and once and for all beat the dark one known as Voldemort.
(stamina): Nigh-invulnerable, and does not need to eat, sleep, or breathe (can survive unaided in space). Extremely resistant to magical attack, and effectively tireless. Even when a specially prepared bullet made from the Rock of Eternity could puncture him, Adam dug it out with his fingers and healed almost immediately. Has survived the equivalent of a major astronomical event being teleported inside his skull, and Captain Marvel has withstood being literally turned inside out by a spatial tesseract bomb with zero ill effects! Shu is the Egyptian god of the air, whose name means “he who rises up”.
(Horus - speed): Black Adam can fly, move, and fight at, at least Mach 500 in an atmosphere; and in space, at faster than light speeds. In one account, Adam traveled from the farthest reaches of the cosmos to earth in 5000 years (the universe is 156 billion light years wide). Heru is the Egyptian god of the sky and victory personified.
(strength): Provides Adam with truly incredible strength. In a strength class with Superman and Captain Marvel, and able to toss one-handed an aircraft carrier (hundreds of thousands of tons) for possibly hundreds of miles. On one occasion, He was successfully able to hold his own against an assemblage of The Justice League, Justice Society, and The Teen Titans, Something neither Superman or Captain Marvel have been able to do. Amon is considered the king of the Egyptian gods, a god of virility and the ‘breath of life’.
(Thoth-wisdom): Access to a godly level of knowledge, magical and mundane. Can simply ‘know’ appropriate knowledge for a situation, and be counseled as to the best course of action. Adam has voiced distrust for the voices of the gods to Captain Marvel. Adam’s gods have also expressed approval for his more brutal actions in “52”, which appears to be very different than the stance of Captain Marvel’s patrons. Black Adam’s senses are phenomenally sharp as well, though nowhere near the level of Superman’s. Zehuti, or Thoth, is the Egyptian god of magic and writing, whose magical powers were so great, that those who read the 'Book of Thoth', became the most powerful magician in the world.
(power): Aton provides the magic lightning that transforms Adam, and Adam can use the lightning bolt as a weapon by dodging it and allowing it to strike an opponent. The power of Aton enables Adam’s flight, enhances his physical abilities and invulnerability, and gives him godly resistance against magical attacks. This power also allows him the power of interdimensional travel. It is feasible that the power of Aton and the wisdom of Zehuti could be used more extensively if required, but that Adam’s general invincibility makes him favor the direct approach. Aton is the Egyptian god of the solar disk and of creation itself.
(courage): Provides a godly degree of inner strength, including superhuman resistance to psychic manipulation, or any form of mind control. It is worth noting that even in mortal form Teth demonstrates phenomenal determination, mental toughness, and nerves of steel. Mehen, or “one who is coiled” is the serpent god who fought the demon Apep to protect the sun.
(nature): Provides a connection with nature and can thus influence natural events. This means that he can use air to fly or to allow things to grow at a great rate. Occasionally this power is beyond his control and can have a wider effect on the weather and natural phenomena, such as earthquakes and the like. He can also summon natural phenomena and use them as weapons such as water blasts or walls of lava.
