  • This graphic novel leads into the The Power of Shazam! (Volume 1) ongoing series. A few plot points of significance are resolved in that series, most noticeably the fate of Mary Batson, which is revealed in bits and pieces. While she makes significant appearances before that, The Power of Shazam! #16 is a key issue in that it reveals her immediate fate after this graphic novel.


  • There are several nods made throughout this issue to the original creators of Captain Marvel. Billy Batson's father's name is C.C. Batson. This is an homage to the late artist, C.C. Beck, one of the co-creators of Captain Marvel and Shazam. One of the avenues in Fawcett City is named Parker Street—a reference to writer/editor Bill Parker. There is a media reference to a neighborhood called Beckville, which is another nod to C.C. Beck. That same source also indicates a location called Binder Square—a reference to Golden Age writer, Otto Binder.
  • In DC Universe the Temple of Ramesses was not relocated before Billy Batson became Captain Marvel. In the real world, the Temple was relocated between 1964 and 1968.
