Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam (2010) (V)
Shazam: I was hoping this moment could wait until you were a bit older. Alas, the threat is upon us now, Billy Batson.
Billy Batson: You know my name?
Shazam: Oh, I know many things. For I am the Wizard, Shazam!
[at the sound of his name, lightning and thunder happens]
Billy Batson: Whoa!

Shazam: Worry not. Black Adam cannot harm you here.
Billy Batson: Who's Black Adam?
Shazam: My gravest mistake, one for which today I will pay in penance! Millennia ago, I chose him to be this world's protector. He was entrusted with great powers, but his heart was corrupted by them. He fell victim the same seven deadly enemies of man that all must battle. I was forced to banish him to the farthest star in the sky. I spent the next 500 years making sure I would not repeat that error. I chose a new hero.
Billy Batson: Who?
Shazam: Why, you, of course. I've been watching your for sometime, Billy. And now this. Bestowed with the wisdom, strength, stamina, power, courage and speed of the gods you will become our new protector. You will become Captain Marvel.
Billy Batson: But I'm no protector.
Shazam: No protector, you say? And yet despite enduring countless tragedies and hardships, you've somehow managed to protect your perfect heart. You, Billy Batson, are all that stands in the way of Black Adam again unleashing tyranny upon us.
Billy Batson: I can't!
Shazam: You must.

[Shazam's cavern starts to crumble]
Billy Batson: We have to get out of here!
Shazam: In times of need, simply call my name... But this is my destiny. Go now, live yours.

Superman: So you're what this is all about.
Captain Marvel: I'm his replacement.
Superman: Then let's replace him.

Black Adam: [grabs a woman from her car] Is this who I was to protect? Why, because they are weak?
Captain Marvel: Put her down!
Black Adam: When you crush an ant beneath your foot, do feel remorse? No. Is this because you are evil or because you recognize yourself as a higher form of life? This is what the Wizard could not understand. If I have the powers of the gods, then I am not a god myself? Should I not be treated as such?
Captain Marvel: Put her down!
Black Adam: You want to be a protector? Then protect the soul. Revert to your mortal form and I will prove a benevolent deity.
Captain Marvel: And then you'll just kill me.
Black Adam: I will.
Captain Marvel: Shazam.
[turns into Billy]
Billy Batson: Now put her down.
Black Adam: See? Like an ant.
[Black Adam throws woman into the sky]
Billy Batson: No! Shaz...
Black Adam: [covers Billy's mouth] Your last breath wasted on the wrong word.

Superman: Easy there. You've got him.
Black Adam: It changes you, does it not? The power.
Captain Marvel: [holding Adam in an iron grip] It only changes that I can choose my own fate now.
Black Adam: Like a god, maybe.
Superman: That's enough!
Captain Marvel: No, I have to. To protect them.
Superman: How? By being like him?
Captain Marvel: By being stronger than him.
Superman: Then be strong... be good.
[Captain Marvel releases Black Adam]

Black Adam: This is not over, then. Only death will stop me.
Mister Tawky Tawny: You're forgetting option number two: banishment. I'll take it from here, captain.
Black Adam: Tawny.
Captain Marvel: You know the homeless guy?
Black Adam: Still the Wizard's lackey, I see.
Mister Tawky Tawny: [turns into a tiger] Lackey, kid's guardian angel, superhero talent scout. Guess I do a bit of everything. So I was thinking this time, the Wizard could send you so far across the universe it'll take you 10,000 years to get back.
Black Adam: No, not again!
Mister Tawky Tawny: Oh, you better believe it.
Black Adam: SHAZAM!
[turns to dust]

Captain Marvel: Holy moley! I'm big!
[Black Adam charges, but he blocks the blow and sends Adam into the next block with an uppercut]
Captain Marvel: Whoa! I'm strong!
[Adam throws a barrage of vehicles at Marvel, but he dodges each of them]
Captain Marvel: I'm fast!
[Adam hurls a truck at Adam, but Marvel soars and spears him]
Captain Marvel: And I can fly!

Captain Marvel: [flying] This is so cool! And all I had to say was SHAZAM!
[lightning strikes Marvel and turns him back into Batson]
Billy Batson: Uh-oh...

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe (2008) (VG)
Captain Marvel: I think I finally have the rage under control. It's all coming from this other universe trying to merge with ours. Its energy creates this terrible fury. You just want to hit something.
Green Lantern: That's what the Guardians said. How did you figure it out?
Captain Marvel: Their alien gods are creating interference with my powers and infecting me with their combat rage.
Green Lantern: Great. Out of control magical alien god powers. So that would make you a danger to us and to yourself.
Captain Marvel: None of us is safe from the rage until this is stopped. I have to get back to the Rock of Eternity to get closer to the gods and see how we can defeat this rage. There has to be a way.
Green Lantern: Good luck, Cap.

Shazam: This is only the beginning. You must stop Dark Kahn.
Captain Marvel: Is that Darkseid?
Shazam: Darkseid's essence has been fused with evil magic from another realm. This new being, Dark Kahn, is the focal point where both universes really intermingle. Its existence will turn this world into a nexus of evil. If the connection between the universes is not severed, and Darkseid's greed, the rage will reach out and devour us all. You must gather an army of both dark and light and find a champion who has defeated Darkseid in the past.
Captain Marvel: Then we must find Superman.

Captain Marvel: This place... such evil.
Shang Tsung: Flattery will get your nowhere. This pathetic creature reeks of the Gods. I want whatever power he possesses.
Scorpion: [to Captain Marvel] We are your death.
Captain Marvel: Even with your world poisoning mine, I think you'll find Captain Marvel isn't easy to kill.

Captain Marvel: I know what we're up against. Our enemy is called Dark Kahn.
The Joker: [screams up into the sky, voice echoes] KAHN!
Deathstroke: Shut up or I'll gut you.

Captain Marvel: Darkseid's energy merged with energy from the other universe. Dark Kahn's mere existence is what causing the two universes to collide.
Superman: That explains the attacks on me and the rest of you. The strange fluctuations of our powers.
Lex Luthor: It was you - your heat vision. You blasted Darkseid's boomtube and sent him hurtling into some unknown universe. This is all your fault.
Superman: You accuse me? You helped Darkseid invade the Earth! Remember?
The Joker: Fight, fight, fight, fight!
Captain Marvel: Both of you calm down. You're being poisoned by the Kombat Rage.
Lex Luthor: Poisoned by what?
Captain Marvel: The dark energies from the world merge. We can't fight them on ourselves. We need to work together to find Dark Kahn.
Catwoman: I have lives to spare. How do we find this Dark Kahn?
Superman: If Dark Kahn is made of Darkseid's energy, it's a good chance he's on Apokolips.
Lex Luthor: I know where we can access one of Dark Kahn's portals. I used it when Catwoman and I escaped. If their portal can take us to Oa, it can take us to Apokolips. Deathstroke, you and Joker secure that portal. This device will lead you to the base. Report back to me when you've succeeded.
Deathstroke: You want me to assault an enemy base with him?
The Joker: Come on. We'll kill things, blow things up. Oh, it'll be fun.
Lex Luthor: Catwoman, you're with me. Can't be too safe in this town. Too many criminals. Superman and Captain America, you gather your hero allies and wait for my word.
Superman: All right, Lex. I'll trust you, for now. You get to the portals, I'll go to the Fortress of Solitude and pull up everything I know about Darkseid. No killing. If one of you steps out of line, believe me, I'll know.

Superman: [D.C. Universe Storyline ending, Superman is in Darkseid's Palace] Raiden. He's gone.
Wonder Woman: The others have disappeared as well.
Captain Marvel: The rage, it's gone.
Lex Luthor: What is this place?
Superman: Darkseid's throne room. The two universes must have separated. Everything is returned to...
[is interupted by groaning]
Superman: normal.
[Looks down to see what that was]
Superman: You're not Darkseid.
Shao Kahn: I am Shao Kahn, and you will bow to me!
[Tries to throw a green firebell, but fails]
Shao Kahn: What?
[Superman grins and the next scene shows Shao Kahn in the Phantom Zone, as he orbits Earth in shattered peices of glass]

Sonya Blade: [Seeing Captain Marvel appear] Red, with a lightning bolt on his chest. This must be the warrior Liu Kang fought, who are you?
Captain Marvel: I'm... Captain Marvel.
Sonya Blade: Captain, what are you doing here?
Captain Marvel: [Succumbing to the Kombat Rage] Confused. Please... understand, the rage. The RAGE!

Captain Marvel: [Influenced by the Kombat Rage] The Rage will consume us all!
Wonder Woman: Not if I can help it.
Wonder Woman: [after defeating Captain Marvel] I need you to be calm, what's happening?
Captain Marvel: I don't know. I try to reach out to the gods and I can't recognize what I see. The rage, you... have... to... help me.
Sub-Zero: You should've finished him.
Wonder Woman: Your world must be different from ours. Here, we don't kill outr friends.

"Young Justice: Agendas (#1.22)" (2012)
J'onn J'onzz: Another expansion of the League could generate another escalation of hostilities from our enemies. No one needs or wants another Injustice League.
Superman: Point taken. But the option remains to vote no on all candidates. So, I nominate Icon for League membership.
[a hologram of Icon appears]
Green Arrow: [chuckles] Why? Because you suspect Icon might be Kryptonian like you did with Captain Marvel?
Captain Marvel: You thought I was Kryptonian? Cool!
Wonder Woman: [to Superman] Icon interests me also. As does his protegé, Rocket.
[Rocket's hologram replaces Icon's]
Wonder Woman: [to Black Canary and Hawkgirl] Athena knows the League could use more female members.
Black Canary: Agreed.
Hawkwoman: Hear, hear!

Captain Marvel: Why is Doctor Fate a member?
[to Fate]
Captain Marvel: You coerced Zatara into giving up his life to you. Or else, lose his daughter instead. Not cool.

The Flash: Maybe it's time we all talk about the elephant in the room. Should Captain Marvel stay a member? Now that we know he's really only ten years old?
Red Tornado: He does possess an adult body and the wisdom of Solomon.
Aquaman: Wisdom does not equal maturity.
Captain Marvel: Hey, I'm sitting right here!
Black Canary: Then, Billy, maybe you should leave. Until we hash this out.
Batman: No. Captain Marvel is a member and is entitled to participate, until or unless he's voted out.

Wonder Woman: It's not just his age. It's the fact that he lied about it.
Captain Marvel: I didn't lie... exactly. I just left out the part about being a kid.
Wonder Woman: A lie of omission is still a lie. You kept an important secret from us. No one in the League knew the truth.
Batman: I did.
Wonder Woman: I shouldn't be surprised.

"Justice League: Clash (#4.7)" (2005)
Captain Marvel: You're my biggest fan.
Superman: Excuse me?
Captain Marvel: I-I mean I'm YOUR biggest fan! Sorry, sir, it's... uh... it's a little overwelming meeting you.

Captain Marvel: No more Mister Nice Guy...
[takes on Superman]

Captain Marvel: My whole life, I've looked up to the League. You were my heroes. Every one of you.
Captain Marvel: [to Superman] And you, you were more than a hero. I idolized you. I wanted to be you. Whenever I was out there, facing down the bad guys, I'd think, "What would Superman do?" Now I know.

Captain Marvel: I believe in fair play. I believe in taking people at their word and giving them the benefit of the doubt. Back home, I've come up against my share of pretty nasty bad guys, but I never had to act the way they did to win a fight. I always found another way. I guess I'm saying I like being a hero. A symbol. And that's why... I'm quitting the Justice League. You don't act like heroes anymore.

Justice League: War (2014) (V)
Cyborg: I think what Lantern is saying is that it's time for some teamwork. So let's pull it together.
Shazam: Yeah, baby, clap it up.
The Flash: What's the plan, then?
Green Lantern: Well, he blast those beams out of his eyes, right?
Wonder Woman: It's settled, then. We blind him.
Green Lantern: That's as good as a plan as any. Yeah, we follow and we stay out of sight. I'll turn on the fireworks to get his attention. Princess, you in striking distance and stab that son of a bitch in the eyes.
Wonder Woman: Like poor damned Oedipus.
Shazam: Yeah, what the hot Greek chick said.
The Flash: And the invasion of monsters raining from the sky, what about them?
Cyborg: I might be able to send them back where they came from.
Green Lantern: Good enough for me. Here we go, team. We got this.

Cyborg: The computer is not responding. Come on, you stupid machine, work.
Computer Voice: Network connect.
Cyborg: Yes.
Computer Voice: Insufficient energy.
Cyborg: Shit. It's programmed, but I don't have the juice to push it. I need a huge blast of power.
Shazam: Shouldn't be a problem. Shazam!
[charges the Mother Box with a lightning bolt]

Shazam: I don't know, a team? I've got a lot of responsibilities.
Wonder Woman: As do I.
Green Lantern: Well, I have a whole universe to protect, people, so there you go.
The Flash: Come on, we can do it together.
Green Lantern: Yeah? Can you fly in space?
Superman: I can.
Green Lantern: Not my point. Look, we're not friends. We're not a team.
The Flash: I don't agree, Hal. I kind of like of being a part of something.
Green Lantern: Yeah, you would. Listen, this was just a one-time deal, okay?
Batman: And what if something should happen again?
Green Lantern: Please, what could possible happen?

[last lines]
President: That said, I am very please to introduce you... Gee, I didn't even ask. Do you guys have a name?
Shazam: Yes, we do.
Cyborg: We do?
Shazam: That's right. You can call us the Super Seven.
Superman: Please don't call us that.
Superman: The Super Seven?
Shazam: What, you don't like it?

"Young Justice: Alpha Male (#1.13)" (2011)
Robin: You're coming with us?
Captain Marvel: Sure. We'll have a blast.
Robin: [to Kid Flash] Translation: he blames us for the red fiasco.
[Aqualad walks by]
Robin: He doesn't trust us.
Kid Flash: [Kid Flash looks at Aqualad] It's a big club.

Captain Marvel: Actually, you let everyone split up before communications were set.
Aqualad: They would not listen
Captain Marvel: I guess. But back at the cave, Batman stopped everyone from fighting with just one word.
Aqualad: Because Batman is... Batman.

Robin: Look, I need to know, why did you keep the mole intel secret?
Aqualad: [pause. Everyone stares at Aqualad] The source of the tip was Sportsmaster.
Artemis: WHAT? You can't trust him!
Aqualad: I do not. It seemed possible even likely that he was attempting to divide the team with false information.
Robin: And given how the mission went, he almost succeeded. But you had to consider it might be true.
Aqualad: Yes, as leader, I did. In which case, I did not wish to alert the traitor.
Robin: I hate to say it, but it makes sense.
Aqualad: I am still prepared to step down.
Kid Flash: [Raising his hand] All in favor of keeping Aqualad as leader.
[Everyone raises their hand]
Captain Marvel: Guess it's unanimous.

Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941)
Shazam [Ch. 1]: I am Shazam.
Billy Batson: My name is...
Shazam [Ch. 1]: All is known to me. Your name is Billy Batson. You did not pry into the secret of the Scorpion. That is why I am here.
Billy Batson: But where did you come from?
Shazam [Ch. 1]: Out of the past, my son. Down through the ages to guard the secret of the Scorpion.

Shazam [Ch. 1]: It is your duty to see that the Curse of the Scorpion is not visited upon innocent people.
Billy Batson: My duty?
Shazam [Ch. 1]: Yes, so long as the Golden Scorpion can fall into the hands of selfish men, it is the duty of Captain Marvel to protect the innocent from its evil use.
Billy Batson: But who is Captain Marvel?
Shazam [Ch. 1]: You are, my son. All that is necessary is to repeat my name, Shazam. By its repetition, you will become Captain Marvel and take on the virtues you see recorded there.
[He points to a marble carving]
Shazam [Ch. 1]: The wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the great courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. You must never call upon this power except in the service of right. To do so will bring the Scorpion's curse upon your own head. And now my son, repeat my name and return to the rescue of your friends.
Billy Batson: SHAZAM!

Superman/Batman: Public Enemies (2009) (V)
Captain Marvel: It doesn't take the wisdom of Solomon to know you should stay down.
Captain Marvel: Tell me something, Captain Marvel. Would Solomon have gone to work for Lex Luthor?

Captain Marvel: [to Superman] You know, you've never been any good against magic. And magic's what I'm all about.

"Batman: The Brave and the Bold: The Power of Shazam! (#2.10)" (2010)
Captain Marvel: It's truly an honor to fight evildoers besides such a brave and selfless hero again.
Batman: Uh... thanks.

Captain Marvel: I know it sounds strange, Batman, but there's a kinship between me and Teth-Adam. I can feel it. Shazam!
[turns into Billy Batson]
Batman: I understand your need for family, Billy. More than you can know.

"Legends of the Superheroes: The Challenge (#1.1)" (1979)
Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana: [disguised as a small boy] Lemonade, Mister? Only five cents a glass!
Captain Marvel: I don't have time for that now, son.
Dr. Thaddeus Bodog Sivana: Oh please sir, please. My ma is sick, and I'm raising my brother and sister, and were gonna get evicted tomorrow and my father's in jail and my grandma croaked and they wouldn't burry my grandma until I come up with the money.
Captain Marvel: Alright. Here. Keep the change.

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox (2013) (V)
Wonder Woman: This form is not your own. How is the enchantment broken?
Captain Thunder: With a word.
Wonder Woman: Speak the word.
Captain Thunder: Shazam!
