about this title on
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson's case, by shouting out one word - SHAZAM! - this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult superhero Shazam.
If you want to save the world, say the magic word.

Did You Know?
On August 6, 2017, David F. Sandberg
posted a mock script page that parodied the rivalry between Shazam and Superman. DC Comics sued Fawcett Comics in 1941, claiming that Captain Marvel was a copyright infringement of Superman, and won on appeal in 1953. Fawcett agreed out of court to pay DC $400,00 and cease publication; DC later licensed (1972) and then bought (by 1991) Captain Marvel from Fawcett, marketing it under the title "Shazam!" DC eventually renamed the character "Shazam" in 2012, retaining a version of the traditional Captain Marvel and his cast in their comics in an alternate universe. See more
