The goddess Isis was worshiped by both ancient Egyptians as well as others in the ancient Greco-Roman world. The ideal mother, wife and matron of nature, Isis was worshiped by everyone from rulers to slaves. The patron goddess of the Egyptian Amazonian group of women known as the Bana-Mighdall, Isis was worshipped into the modern era.
After Black Adam took control of the Arabic dictatorship of Kahndaq, the criminal organization Intergang offered him the enslaved refugee woman Adrianna Tomaz. Black Adam returned the favor by killing the Intergang members. Unafraid, Tomaz voiced her opinion of how Black Adam should improve the plight of his nation's citizens. Falling in love with the refugee, Black Adam offers her the Amulet of Isis once worn by the Queen Pharaoh Hatshepsut, which transforms Tomaz imbuing her with the powers of the goddess Isis.
