- Mary Marvel first appeared in Earth-S continuity in Fawcett Publications' Captain Marvel Adventures #18 by Otto Binder and Marc Swayze. Her first appearance in Post-Crisis New Earth continuity was in the The Power of Shazam! graphic novel by Jerry Ordway.
- During her time in The Power of Shazam!, Mary is also exclusively called Captain Marvel. This was the decision of the series' writer and sometimes artist Jerry Ordway. This was also the cause of Captain Marvel, Junior's alias CM3.
- Mary Batson is lactose-intolerant.
- During the events of Final Crisis, Mary was transformed by the power of Darkseid's Omega Effect into an extremely powerful vessel for the New God Desaad. While transformed, Mary was older, dressed in a dominatrix outfit, had pink pig tails and an otherwise shaved head, as well as claws for hands that were strong enough to slice through a transformed Freddy Freeman's chest and face. She stated that she had "New Gods" and a new "Dirty Magic Word" to transform. Mary's powers appeared to be largely the same as both her original Mary Marvel and her Black Adam fueled powers, but at even greater levels. She was able to fight the likes of Supergirl, Wonder Woman, and Captain Marvel without too much trouble. It appears that this form of Mary is fueled by Anti-Life rather than magic.
- Mary Batson is traditionally a Republican.
