Just say the word.
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, courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart, inside of a ripped, godlike body, Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test?
Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But, he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana.
Based on Captain Marvel / Shazam (character) by C.C. Beck, Bill Parker.
