Captain Marvel

Shazam, known until 2011 as Captain Marvel, is a fictional superhero who appears in American comic books published by DC Comics, and in a number of television and video game adaptations. The character was created in 1939 by artist C. C. Beck and writer Bill Parker, and first appeared in Whiz Comics #2, published by Fawcett Comics. Shazam is the alter ego of Billy Batson, a boy who, by speaking the magic word "Shazam", can transform himself into a costumed adult with the powers of superhuman strength, speed, flight, and other abilities. His name is an acronym of the six figures from whom his magical powers derive: Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. Based on ... more on Wikipedia
