This week, we’re asking DC fans to submit their fun trivia facts about a character named Billy Batson, who, when speaks the name of an ages-old wizard, is transformed into the World’s Mightiest Mortal!
Billy Batson’s parents died when he was still a baby. The orphaned child believed he had no one to rely on and had to fend for himself. But one day, he was guided to the Rock of Eternity, where the ancient wizard Shazam waited. The world needed heroes and the boy became the wizard’s new champion, able to transform himself into an adult superhero by calling down a magical bolt of lightning.
Of course, we can only be talking about the one and only Shazam!
