Shazam was a member of the Quintessence, a group of five cosmic beings who watch over the events that take place in the universe without much direct influence over it. During the meta-human crisis, Shazam pleaded for understanding from his fellow members in regards to Billy Batson's corruption at the hands of Lex Luthor.
Shazam and his three other members later sent the Phantom Stranger to give a faith healer named William, whose faith in Superman being a deity was shattered when his idol confessed that the disaster in Kansas was his fault and not his intention, a seven-sealed scroll. The scroll would give the man power to change events so that the Kansas disaster does not ever happen. However, the Phantom Stranger finds out that the other four members of the Quintessence were planning to use William, now transformed into Gog, as their agent to make the Kansas incident happen years earlier for their own ends and purposes. Shazam hoped that Billy Batson would be spared the fate that befell him. This required the Phantom Stranger to enlist the aid of his own agent, Hunter of the Linear Men, to stop Gog's plan.
