Alakazam. Presto Chango. Abracadabra. How many magic words are staples of pop culture? If you can count them on more than one hand, then color us impressed. Regardless of how you’re keeping score, only one has been featured in comics, live-action TV shows, cartoons, toys, and video games for over seventy years.
SHAZAM! Two syllables famous for magically turning a boy into a superpowered adult.
Unlike most foster children, Billy Batson couldn’t care less about finding a family. He just wants to turn eighteen and finally become an adult. While the boy’s compassionate and kind, he’s gotten used to protecting himself by staying emotionally distant from everybody. But that changes when he meets an ancient wizard who introduces him to one very powerful word.
Just by saying SHAZAM!, Billy is transformed into a magical flying adult superhero, one with the genius of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the unbreakable will of Atlas, the lightning blasts of Zeus, the power of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. But gaining the power of the gods means inheriting their enemies too. With the abilities of the world’s mightiest mortal, Billy will have to struggle with magical threats as well as his own youthful naïveté. To truly tap into his power, this orphan who’s always kept people at arm’s length will have to learn what family really is.
