Shazam is a character created by C.C. Beck and Bill Parker. A young boy called Billy Batson, he transforms into the adult superhero Shazam whenever he shouts the word "SHAZAM!". He receives powers from divine figures, gaining the intelligence of Solomon (which gives him superhuman intelligence), the strength of Hercules (which gives him superhuman strength), the fighting skills of Achilles (which makes him an expert at boxing and mixed martial arts), the lightning of Zeus (which gives him the ability to control lightning), the endurance of Atlas (which gives him invulnerability), and the speed of Mercury (which gives him superhuman speed). His partners are Lady Shazam and King Shazam, and his archnemesis is Black Adam.
