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



Look, a shooting star.

Quick, Sally, make a wish.

Mine's for us to be together forever.

Hey, it's getting bigger.

- Uh, what?

- The shooting star.

Oh, my God.

It's coming right at us! Aah!







Who's hungry?


Oh, take them all.

I'm going to breakfast.

Good morning, Miss Bambi.

You sure look pretty today.


Oh, come on, man.

You really gonna take a bum's money?

How am I gonna buy beer

if this is all you have?


Hey, leave him alone.

Mind your own business, little man.

Then just leave him alone.


- Ow.

Got nothing to say now?


Sorry, captain.

The last thing I wanted was for you

to get your ass whupped on my account.


Just trying to do the right thing, sir.

And that is why you're the captain,


You know, everybody nowadays

is looking for change.

Just want it to come

from someone else, huh?

Hey, um, speaking of, uh... Heh.

Well, I hate to ask, but...

- Only have a subway token.

- Works for me.

And next time you see me, I'll hit you

back with some change, captain.

Heh, sure.

Holy moly. Is this all for me, Mr. Kent?

Since you ate two breakfasts yesterday,

thought I'd better order you three today.

You really think the folks

who read your paper care...

...about some kid from Fawcett City?

I think they'll care a lot.

I hope they'll do something...

...to help you and other kids

in your situation.

What's that on your face?

Eh, it's what you get

for trying to be good.

Should have just kept my mouth shut.

"Be good and good will follow."

That's what my parents used

to always tell me.

You know, Mr. Kent, I was good

before they were taken from me.

I was good at the foster home.

And I was good 15 minutes ago.

I'm starting to think being good

isn't good for me.

It seems that way sometimes,

doesn't it?

But that's because good is hard.

Bad is always easy.



I was not expecting a child.

But you are marked

by the wizard's energy.

Chosen to one day inherit

the mantle of power.

L... I don't understand.

What do you want from me?

Your life.

Hey, stay away from him.









Stay here, son.

You fight for the wizard?

I fight for those who can't fight

for themselves.





Why is he after me?

I was gonna ask you

the same question.


Indeed, you are my physical match.

But I sense one critical difference:

A vulnerability to magic.


Another difference: Heat vision.


- You did it.

- Go.

But you beat him. It's over.





- Hey, captain. Where's the fire?

- Unh. Unh.

Please, let go. You don't understand.

Look, man. The change I promised.

Right here.

Well, it's a token,

but I told you I'd pay you back.

Now you can take the subway

instead of hoofing it on foot.

Pfft. You're welcome.





Uh, hello?


Whoa! Aah!


Holy moly.

I was hoping this moment

could wait until you were a bit older.

Alas, the threat is upon us now,

Billy Batson.

You know my name?

Oh, I know many things

for I am the wizard Shazam.



Worry not.

Black Adam cannot sense you here.

Who's Black Adam?

My gravest mistake.

One for which today

I will pay my penance.

Millennia ago,

I chose him to be this world's protector.

He was entrusted with great powers,

but his heart was corrupted by them.
