S.H.A.Z.A.M. was a team of six teenagers who could turn into the magical champion Captain Thunder.


During the events of Flashpoint time is rewritten and Billy Batson never becomes Captain Marvel. The new Marvel Family consists of six children who were caught on a subway car that took them to the Rock of Eternity, and The Wizard Shazam instead grants the power to six children each with a different aspect of the power of Captain Marvel. An Asian-American boy named Eugene Choi possesses the wisdom of Solomon, an overweight Latino boy named Pedro Peña possesses the strength of Hercules, Mary Batson possesses the stamina of Atlas, Freddy Freeman possesses the power of Zeus, Billy Batson possesses the courage of Achilles, and an African-American girl named Darla Dudley possesses the speed of Mercury. Tawky Tawny is also shown with them on a leash held by Pedro. By saying the wizard's name "Shazam" together, the six children possess the collective ability to turn into Captain Thunder, who has a scarred face which he claims is due to Wonder Woman. With the death of Billy Batson, the team is rendered unable to continue.[1]
