Magically bestowed aspects of mythological figures that include superhuman strength, speed, stamina, physical and magical invulnerability, flight, fearlessness, and vast wisdom and enhanced mental perception.
Osiris is Amon Tomaz, brother of the hero Isis. Amon has been repeatedly beaten and tortured by members of the criminal cult Intergang who are trying to brainwash him into joining the cult. He refuses to join them time and again, resulting in the beatings getting worse. He is discovered by the Question and Renee Montoya who alert Isis and Black Adam to his location. The super-powered couple arrive to free him, and Isis discovers that her powers over nature are not enough to heal his wounds, and that Amon will never walk again. Black Adam shares the powers of his gods with the boy, and Amon calls down the mystical lightning by saying his benefactor's name, "Black Adam." He gains the same powers as the rest of the Marvel Family. This origin is similar to that of Captain Marvel Jr.
After doing acts of good and helping people throughout the world, he travels to America to join the Teen Titans, along with his "friend" Sobek, a bioengineered talking crocodile taken from Sivana's labs. Captain Marvel Jr. was at first skeptical because of Amon's connection to Black Adam, but became moved by his eagerness and promises to vouch for him only if he could "convince the rest of the world" of his pure intentions. Osiris, filled with hope, accepts. Those hopes are shattered shortly afterwards when, during a conflict with the Suicide Squad, Osiris uses too much force and tears the Persuader in half.
