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 20's, with a powerful, muscular build. He wears a red body suit with gold boots and a long white cape with a high collar. Emblazoned across his chest is a golden lightning bolt that seems to constantly sparkle with power.
- Super Intelligence - Billy is endowed with the Wisdom of Solomon. This ability grants Shazam instant access to a vast amount of impalpable scholarly knowledge.
- Super Strength - Billy wields the demigodly Strength of Hercules. This is chief among his other powers as this ability grants Shazam incredible superhuman strength easily comparable to the of a fully-realized Kryptonian such as Superman, making Shazam one of the strongest beings in the universe.
- Advanced Super Stamina - Billy's empowered body is strengthened by the titanic Stamina of Atlas. This allows Shazam to exert himself physically for potentially incalculable amounts of time before tiring.
- Godly Magic - Billy's most potent supernatural ability is the raw Power of Zeus. This ability, besides fueling the magic thunderbolt that transforms Batson into Shazam, also grants him resistance against all magic spells and attacks. The hero can use the lightning bolt as a weapon by dodging it and allowing it to strike an opponent or another target. This ability also allows him to generate powerful magic-based attacks from his finger tips.
- Indomitable Will - Billy's mind and spirit are endowed and strengthened by the demigodly, gritty and nigh-unbreakable Courage of Achilles. While he still feels fear and doubt, he is always supported by a harmonious presence of good will and inner strength and resolve which allows him to confront even the most terrifying of foes with inhuman valor. This power also strengthens his mind against psychic attacks or manipulations.
- Super Speed - Billy is endowed with the supersonic Speed of Mercury. This ability allows Shazam to run and fly at speeds far surpassing the speed of sound. His speed, like his strength and stamina, is easily comparable to a fully-realized Kryptonian. His speed is, however, not on the same level of light-speed acceleration as Barry Allen.
Batson's only known weakness is to attack him in his normal form, somehow preventing him from saying "Shazam".
