Fun Stuff

From DC Showcase: Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam (2010) (V)
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.
