When Black Adam holds Billy's foster siblings hostage, demanding he transfer his powers to him, Billy recalled what the Wizard told him about sharing his powers with his family and transformed them into Shazams like himself and they begin battling Black Adam and the Seven Deadly Sins. Unfortunately, Billy's siblings accidentally lose their powers due to his inexperience casting magic when he empowered a tiger. Ultimately, Billy is able to trick Black Adam into reverting to mortal form, causing him to age into dust.
The Shazam Family is a cooperation of Shazam (Billy Batson) and his five foster siblings. If only one Shazam Family member who is transformed, he/she will have full power level; with two members transformed, the duo have each a half of the power level; with three transformed, the trio will have each only one third of the power level. If all six members transformed at once, each gets only a one sixth of the power level.
