Since he's definitely one of the currently most popular characters in Injustice, here are some Black Adam combos and strategy containing an interesting vortex. Vulcan Hades has put together a very fitting video demonstration of how this vortex works with Black Adam's "Black Magic" and forward 3. He shows and explains several set-ups and lists a full guide to what he is doing.
-j2, starter xx trait, 22b1, early fj2 xx FBS, b2 xx MB Black Magic wait, f3 OR dash twice, f3 (48%, on big characters like Doomsday use the less damaging variation)
-j2, starter xx trait, 22b1, fj2 xx 11 xx MB Black Magic, wait, f3 OR dash twice, f3 (43%, universal)
It's extremely ambiguous and even I'm not sure whether I'm going to cross-up or not sometimes. The timing of MB Black Magic, the timing of F3 and the timing of j1/j2 can all slightly alter the outcome.
The "Bladam Special" is actually a front attack but that crosses-up if they try to block it like a cross-up. Yes, they have to block this "incorrectly" (hold back) on what appears to be a cross-up visually. If you time f3/j2 earlier or later it will be a true cross-up and then they'll have to hold forward instead.
Characters with poor wake ups just have to deal with it. And vs characters who have good wake up options you can just alter the timing to safe jump or make them whiff in the wrong direction.
