The all-new, all-fun adventures of Captain Marvel, the world’s mightiest mortal, are collected from his hot new series!
Eleven-year-old Billy Batson has been given an amazing gift: The magic word Shazam!, which transforms him into Captain Marvel and gives him incredible super-powers. But now there’s a new kid at school: Billy’s greatest foe, 14-year-old Theo Adam, who has his own alter ego as Black Adam — if only he could remember his own secret word. Theo is determined to get the secret of Billy’s magic word any way he can.
