Mary Bromfield is a girl in the Philadelphia foster care system, raised by Victor and Rosa Vasquez. She is the oldest of the Vasquez children and acts as a sort of den mother for the other children.
Mary is a foster child in Philadelphia who was eventually adopted by Victor and Rosa Vasquez. When she first moved in with them, she was not very happy with living with them, and even ran away twice. Eventually, she grew to love living with them, along with her other foster siblings who came to live with her as well.
In December 2018, she was already a high school senior ready to go off to college. One night, when Victor and Rosa just adopted and brought home Billy Batson, she was on the phone doing a college interview for Caltech, the college she was applying for, though she was frustrated with Eugene yelling at his video game in the background, and briefly introduced herself to Billy.
The next day at school, when she and her foster siblings were about to go home, Freddy was assaulted by bullies, and she tried to defend him, but to no avail. However, when Billy fought off the bullies and ran away, Mary and the other siblings went over to Freddy to help him.
She eventually did get accepted to Caltech, but was sad about the fact that she has to leave her family behind. One day, when she was walking on the road, she got distracted reading the acceptance letter and was almost run over by a snow plow, but Shazam came in and rescued her. She told him what she was upset about, though while she was talking with him, he accidentally revealed that he knew her name and that she lived in a foster family.
Powers and Abilities
- Transformation: After shouting "Shazam!" while holding the Wizard's staff, Mary was imbued with the power to transform every time she says "Shazam!". When transformed, Mary has the powers of six Gods, giving her a wide range of magical and physical abilities, although she has yet to show many abilities.
- Electrokinesis: Although she has never openly displayed the ability to manipulate electricity Mary is most likely capable of doing so as other members of the Shazam Family can.
- Flight: With the powers of the Gods Mary is able to manipulate her own gravitational field to levitate or fly.
- Superhuman Durability: When empowered, Mary's body is much more resistant to physical damage than the body of a normal human being.
- Superhuman Speed: Although she has never openly displayed the ability to run at superhuman speeds Mary is most likely capable of doing so as other members of the Shazam Family can.
- Superhuman Strength: While in her empowered form Mary is superhumanly strong, as she was able to fight against the Deadly Sins.
