Ed's Notes: These stats are a bit different from those in Writeups, mainly because I'm using the Power Set from 3rd Edition Captain Marvel. (So no Lightning. Obviously these characters could stand to be updated, but I'm sticking to the published material as much as possible.) And for her attributes, basically if Cap-M had a higher rating than Billy-B, then I assume it's related to the Powers of Shazam and thus Freddie benefits from the same rating. (He pretty much she only keeps only her Int of 5.) Basically, in addition to the same Powers, he gets Dex: 14, Str: 20, Body: 14, Will: 10, Mind +3 AP's, Infl +1 AP, Aura +3 AP's and Spirit: 7.

Writeups includes a bit about how the Powers are reduced when more than one member of the Marvel family use the Powers of Shazam. I'll be honest: I don't know if this is cannon or not. BUT... DCH does not include anything about this. Possibly because Cap was the only one ever written up, BUT... So was Black Adam. Wouldn't THEY split the Powers (lose 1 AP from... everything) as well? So... I didn't miss that, I'm intentionally leaving it out.

First Appearance: Whiz Comics #25 (December, 1941)


  1. The power splitting was canon, but I think it got retconned.

  2. The above post is correct. It was canon, but it was probably retconned. Also, Black Adam's power wouldn't be weakened because he gets his powers from a separate group of deities than Billy and the other Marvels.

  3. Even though he, and others, have the same power level as Captain Marvel, I used the idea that the vaguely defined "stamina of Atlas" is divided amongst them, so it may affect their ability to Push, or they may get tired faster with some sort of Burnout.
