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.

Did You Know?


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 »

Shazam! Captain Marvel!
3 November 2005 | by markus010167See all my reviews

the cartoon Shazam! was better the live action one because it was based solely from the comics. also noticed the music from the 1st series was in this one as well. in fact when i see the older show and hear the music, sometimes i think of the animated series. too bad Uncle Dudley and Mentor never met in the show , you know. Cap sounded a bit like He-Man and Mary sounded like She-Ra; i thought they were voiced by the same folks, but they're not. too bad they didn't have them and Isis side by side; that would have been cool. imagine that; Andrea Thomas and the Batsons and Freddy Freeman transforming into Isis and the Marvels at the same time. oh well. it was still a good show; i'm surprised this is not on DVD yet. when in doubt, say the magic words: Shazam! Captain Marvel!
