Billy Batson is Shazam, a young hero empowered with the gifts of ancient gods by the Wizard.
At some bespeak during his early childhood, during Dick Grayson ‘s tenure as Robin, Billy Batson was empowered by the Wizard with the ability to transform into a herculean ace with the utterance of a individual word- Shazam!. During this prison term, he lived in Fawcett, a vicinity precisely outside of Philadelphia. [ 3 ] Though able to transform into the mighty supporter Shazam, he appeared to operate in relative obscureness ; Felix Faust, a skilled and intimate sorcerer, would later be hired to attack him as separate of a distraction for a larger plat, and despite his cognition failed to make the connection between being paid to ensure that Billy was unable to speak, the being of the Fawcett ‘s local champion, and the Wizard Shazam despite knowing that Billy was somehow connected to the Wizard. During this attack, Faust pulled Billy, Superman, and Batman into Hell. [ 4 ] This would not be Billy ‘s last experience in this vein ; during his adventures, Billy had several encounters with demons and the hell, referring to the number of times he had visited as ‘too many ‘, citing experience with Satanus, Blaze, and Neron, the last of whom made at least one attack to claim Billy ‘s person. [ 5 ]

The Vasquez Family

Billy Batson became an orphan at a young historic period after his parents, C.C. and Marilyn Batson, died. After the end of his parents, Billy became coldness and barbarous to most people. Growing selfish and hardhearted, he went from foster home to foster home until he landed in an orphanage in Philadelphia. At the historic period of fifteen Billy was placed in the care of Victor and Rosa Vasquez, both former foster children themselves, who had already adopted a count of children. truncheon moved in to the Vazquezes ‘ family where he met his new foster-siblings Mary, Freddy, Eugene, Pedro, and Darla. Billy refused to connect to the other children and rejected their attempts to get close to him. The pursue day, however, Billy stepped in to defend his siblings from bullies who were picking on them at educate. That nox, he snuck out of the house and was followed by Freddy, and the boys decided to hijack the bullies ‘ church father ‘s car. Billy was caught and escaped on an belowground train at the metro station. The coach transformed into a gateway to the Rock of Eternity, where Billy met the Wizard. The Wizard searched the boy ‘s soul and saw that he was not perfectly good. When he told him so, Billy was immediately enraged at him for believing that any person is strictly effective and without flaws. The Wizard accepted Billy ‘s luff and looked deep into his soul. After witnessing all the well Billy had done in his life, the Wizard bestowed his exponent upon him. With a son, he could transform into the ace, Shazam, and wield the Living Lightning. After granting Billy all of his power, the Wizard died. At the same time, the ancient ace Black Adam was freed from his prison by Doctor Sivana who, through an accident, gained the ability to see charming with his hurt eye. Sivana showed Black Adam the modern global, which Adam was not satisfied with. He started his plans to change the earth and, to do that, he left to find the Rock of Eternity. There, he discovered that there was a new champion who Adam was determined to find. meanwhile, Billy met up with Freddy. After convincing his foster brother about his newfound superpowers, the couple went out for a nox of shenanigans. apparently by accident, however, the two seemed to run into all sorts of trouble, all of which Shazam resolved. He helped a woman when she was being mugged, stopped a bank robbery and punched out a man who wanted to rob a memory. All the while, they tried to use Billy ‘s pornographic appearance to achieve goals such as getting money to drink beer. A spirit called Francesca appeared in a mirror to warn Shazam of the emergence of Black Adam, but Billy believed he was fair hallucinating. finally, Billy got into a crusade with Freddy after he told him he did n’t want to go home or change second into his adolescent imprint, and the two split astir .
When he was alone, Shazam was last found by Black Adam who attacked him without compunction. billy managed to escape by changing binding into his person form and obscure in the menagerie with a tiger he regularly visited called Tawny. Freddy told his foster-siblings what had happened, and they found Billy and convinced him to turn back into Shazam to stop Black Adam. They traveled to the metro station to try to return to the Rock of Eternity. There, Francesca spoke to Billy again, and she told him how Black Adam came to be. Francesca showed Billy visions of a male child and his family who were enslaved in ancient Kahndaq, a state in the East where all magic trick originated from. The boy was forced to work in mines until his uncle saved him from a guard. The two tried to escape, but in the process they were found by the Council of Wizards. There, the Wizard decided to grant his world power to the boy and give him a connection to the Living Lightning, but he refused and wanted to share it with his injured and dying uncle to save him ; a regard the Wizard granted. Seeing this, Billy thought that Black Adam was the son of ancient times, a lost child just like he was. not listening to Francesca ‘s pleas, Billy ran out to meet Black Adam, revealing his mortal form to the other champion. In an attempt to talk Adam out of his demonic crusade, Billy tried to appeal to Adam ‘s emotions but was rebuffed. There, Adam revealed that he was not in fact the male child, but the uncle. He killed his nephew when he learned that he did not want to use his powers for retaliation .
Billy was horrified by this and was saved by his foster family when they drove a car into Black Adam, giving Billy enough fourth dimension to transform into Shazam. Billy faced his nemesis merely to find that Adam had caught his foster siblings. Black Adam ordered Shazam to give him all of his power or he would kill his siblings. billy remembered a while of advice the Wizard had told him in his final moments, “ kin is what it can be, not what it should be. ” Shazam realized that this was the confidential spell, and he granted all of his siblings the ability to wield the Living Lightning. They all tried to overpower Black Adam together, but were forced to split up when the Seven Deadly Sins, whom Sivana gathered together, were unleashed upon the city. They summoned a devil which started to destroy the city. Shazam and Adam continued their conflict while the other Vasquez children fought off the demon and rescued civilians. Shazam and Black Adam arrived at the menagerie where Tawny tried to help Billy and attack Adam. Fearing for the tiger ‘s life, Shazam enchanted him, but the spell backfired and broke the remainder of his existing enchantments and his siblings immediately started to feel a passing of exponent. Knowing that physically he was no match for Black Adam, Billy turned back into his deadly imprint and started goading Adam to do the same. The erstwhile champion did so in fury, unwillingly killing himself. Because he had not changed binding in centuries, his mortal phase aged hundreds of years in a single moment, causing his body to turn to dust. The Seven Deadly Sins retreated and the city was saved. In the consequence, Billy grew closer with his new family .
Following the cosmic upheavals of the Rebirth period, this character’s history was revised. While some version of this encounter may have occurred, it logically must be heavily revised, as it is no longer his origin.

[ 30 ]



  • Inexperience: Despite possessing incredible abilities in his superpowered form, Billy still lacks skill and experience as a crime fighter. He also doesn’t really understand the true extent of his mystical abilities. Both of these factors often render him overwhelmed when faced with stronger and more experienced opponents.[38]
  • Vocal reliance: The spell that allows Billy to transform into Shazam is purely vocal. Therefore, if he is prevented from speaking, such as being gagged, he will not be able to transform.

  • Originally, Billy’s origin took place concurrently with the then-ongoing Justice League title; however, following the various cosmic upheavals that ended in Death Metal, references to pre-flashpoint events that he participated in would seem to make that impossible.
  • Billy bears a striking resemblance to Black Adam’s deceased nephew, Aman[47]
