The nephew of Black Adam, Aman and his uncle were enslaved in their homeland by the invading Ibac and his army. Aman was ripped from his family's arms never to see them again, and put to work in the caves. Although he wished for death many times, it never came, although help finally did in the form of his uncle. His uncle found him and gave him the opportunity to escape being a slave, but was mortally wounded in the process. Refusing to leave his uncle, Aman helped him walk until the ground under their feet gave way, causing them to fall to depths unknown.
Instead of dying however, Aman found himself within the Rock of Eternity in front of the Council of Eternity. Each member of the council chose someone to be their champion, and the Wizard chose Aman to be his. With his uncle dying, Aman begged the Wizard to save him. The Wizard replied that his power may flow through family and all he needed to do to save his uncle was to accept his blessing and for both to speak his name. The two did so, saying Shazam! which granted them great powers.
Sent back to Kahndaq to save its people from their captors, Adam wanted them all to pay, while Aman wanted to usher in a new era for Kahndaq, one of mercy. Adam pretended to agree with the boy and they both shouted Shazam! As the lightning flowed from the sky to transform them into the powerful beings they could become, Adam interrupted the power to Aman and killed him instead, taking the power for himself so he could do with it as he pleased, including seeking revenge on his previous captors and the men who murdered his family. Aman's uncle Adam would go on to become Black Adam.
