Storyline

This series tells the stories of the students of Hero High, a high school specializing in the education of young superheroes. They have all the typical teenage activities, rivalries and events, but modified for their powers and skills. The companion series is of the adventures of the Marvel Family. Billy and Mary Batson and their friend, Freddie Freeman, are ordinary kids who have a wonderful secret and a great responsibility. When trouble looms, the Batson siblings need but speak the name of the ancient wizard who appointed them, "Shazam", while Freddie must say the name of his favourite superhero, "Captain Marvel" to call the magic lightning to become respectively Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr. Together, they fight the threats to the world, whether they be villians like the mad scientist Dr. Sivana, the malevolent worm Mr. Mind, or the renegade Marvel, Black Adam.

Trivia

The Hero High segments were initially developed as part of the Archie cartoon franchise in which the gang was portrayed as a group of Superheroes. However, due to a rights dispute, the concept was dropped, though most of the Hero High characters wound up with similar looks and personas to those of the Archie Gang. See more »

80's CAMP/CULT CLASSIC!!!!!
10 January 2001 | by smackdown81_99See all my reviews

This was one of my favorite TV shows growing up. It had a cheesy theme song, weird characters, and great humor. It was a sad day when the show went off the air. It is not available on video either. :( My favorite character on the show was Rex Ruthless. It was campy, cheesy, but overall, it was a barrel of laughs. A CULT CLASSIC! In my opinion anyways!
