One of the benefactors of Captain Marvel, Solomon was son of King David of Israel.

After marry with a daughter of the Pharaoh of Egypt, the young king went to Gibeon, where he made a sacrifice to God. In dream, the Lord spoke to him: "Ask what I shall give thee". Solomon replied: "Give thy servant understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad." So Solomon received his great wisdom, and he was incredibly rich. [1]

In some point of his life, he and six others heroes (Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, Mercury and Oggar) formed a group led by a wizard named Shazamo; The team crossed the world performing all kinds of good feats. One day, Oggar rebelled, and Shazamo cursed him, driving him out of his conviviality. In addition, the wizard removed the "O" of his name, in shame, being known from that moment only like Shazam.

Solomon married with 700 wives, various pagans, what displeased God. As punishment, his son would lose a great part of the kingdom. After Solomon's death, Israel was split in two separate nations. [1]
