Synopsis for "Capt. Marvel meets Attila the Hun"

Dr. Sivana uses his Reincarnation Machine to resurrect Attila the Hun, expecting the Mongol conqueror to defeat Capt. Marvel. Beautia warns Billy Batson about the plans of her father and Batson changes to Captain Marvel. Even with all his wild strength, Attila is not successful in doing harm to Marvel. Sivana and Attila hide themselves. Beautia tries to kiss Marvel, who changes back to Billy in order to flee from her. Dr. Sivana seizes the opportunity and gags Billy, and imprisons him in his house. Attila begins to mess with Sivana's home, eating enough for ten people, allowing his horse to stay inside the house, kissing Beautia, and even sleeping in Sivana's bed. And the worst: Attila is longing for the position of rightful ruler of the universe, which is the main goal of Sivana. The mad scientist frees Billy, who changes to Captain Marvel and knocks out Attila, throwing him into the reincarnation machine, where he returns to his previous state. Instead of being jailed, Sivana vows to reform himself.

Notes

Trivia

  • Second story: Steamboat is a stereotypical black character. Comic book stories from 1943 may depict some ethnic and racial prejudices that were once commonplace in American society. Such depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While not representing the DC Comics view of today's society, these stories are being indexed and summarized as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.
  • Third story: This is the first time that ordinary lightning changes Billy Batson into Captain Marvel.
  • Fifth story:
    • The Reincarnation Machine will be used again by Sivana in Shazam! #26.
    • This story is the first one in which Sivana asks for help from Captain Marvel.
    • At the end of this story, Attila goes back to his previous state, which effectively means death.
