DC Showcase: Superman\Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam


He fell victim to the same seven deadly

enemies of man that all must battle.

I was forced to banish him

to the farthest star in the sky.

I spent the next 5000 years making sure

I would not repeat that error.

I chose a new hero.

- Who?

- Why, you, of course.

I've been watching you for some time,


And now, bestowed with the wisdom,

strength, stamina, power, courage...

...and speed of the gods...

...you will become our new protector.

You will become Captain Marvel.

But I'm no protector.

No protector, you say?

And yet despite enduring countless

tragedies and hardships...

...you've somehow managed to protect

your perfect heart.

You, Billy Batson, are all that stands

in the way of Black Adam...

...again unleashing tyranny upon us.

- I can't.

- You must.

There. It is done.


We have to get out of here.

In your times of need, simply call on me.

But this is my destiny.

Go now. Live yours.






One potential obstacle destroyed.

Now to finish off the other.


Hey, leave him alone.

What am I doing?

You are alive. An impressive trick.

Not as impressive as this one.




Amusing. The wizard finally

gave you your powers...

...but neglected to show you

how they work.

Superman? Anyone?

Need a little help here, Shazam.

Holy moly. I'm big.


Whoa, I'm strong.


I'm fast.

And I can fly.

This is so cool.

And all I had to do was say Shazam.








Whew. That was close.



I did not spend 5000 years traveling

across the infinite void of space...

...to be thwarted by some man-child.
