Yeah i know. I heard he surpassed superman at one point.
I call him Captain Marvel. How is he supposed to refer to himself? If his name is Shazam then he can never introduce himself.
he has to mean it when he transforms. If he doesn’t mean it he won’t transform.
Fair enough. I noticed when reading Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E that Freddy can’t say his name or they make a joke of it.
But in a later Shazam title Captain Marvel or Shazam can say it just like what you said.
I usually call him Shazam. I know it’s really the wizards name, I haven’t seen any of his comics so I don’t really know the backstory for all that. Only thing I’ve seen from him is the movie which was good and sort of the reason why I call him Shazam since the movie is called that. It’s just easier to say and people still know who I’m talking about.
Shazam is the name of the wizard. He used to be Captain Marvel but I think more recently he is just referred to as Marvel.
I’m old school so I call him Captain Marvel…
Unless I talk to a young fan.
However, the weakness he had of being unable to say Shazam without changing back was hurtful to the character.
honestly Freddy shouldve just said Shazam like Black adam and captain marvel, never got the point of him saying Captain Marvel.
fair point, I havent seen the movie nor do I plan to but I read the comics so I’m use to call him Captain Marvel.
he is? I notcied in the new comics he’s called Shazam.
again, Billy has to mean it when he wants to transform. If he doesnt mean it Shazam won’t do anything.
I call him “the artist formerly known as Captain Marvel.”
He was always Capt. Marvel to me and it was the Wizard Shazam.
He is and always will be Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel for sure.
Captain Marvel, he was the first Captain Marvel to me and will always will know him by that name.
I started reading when he was named Captain Marvel. So Captain Marvel he will always be. I never understood why the magical word was his name anyway.
Well it might be a drag if he’s ever brought up in a conversations.
Exactly, wouldn’t the wizard feel weird that he has to share his name
