- —Billy Batson
William "Billy" Batson is a young boy who was chosen by the Wizard Shazam to be a protector of the world, and granted super powers by uttering the word "Shazam" transforming him from a small boy into a fully grown adult. He is known as the super hero Shazam.
In his normal form, Billy is a regular black-haired boy. When transformed into Shazam, however, he appears as a young man in his mid 30's, with a powerful, muscular build. He wears a red body suit with gold boots and a long white cape that cuts off at the back of his knees, with a high collar. Emblazoned across his chest is a golden lightning bolt that seems to constantly sparkle with power.
Powers and AbilitiesEdit
Billy has shown to be a self-reliant teenage boy, who tends to get himself into trouble. He doesn't feel the need for foster parents and has actually ran away from his previous ones on several separate occasions. He is also a bit of a loner, as he isn't willing to open up to the Vasquezes and his fellow foster siblings.
Despite his flaws, Billy is an inherently good person, as he was willing to step up for his foster brother, Freddy. And this kindness is why the all powerful wizard, Shazam, chose Billy as his successor; he believed that boy could more good in the world with his powers.
As Shazam, Billy retains his normal personality. In the midst of his newfound powers, he finds himself to be using it for his own gain and amusement, not really considering the consequences of this.
