Lightning and the Marvels

#1 Edited by Fata_Morgana (33 posts) - - Show Bio

So I was caught in the rain walking home the other day, and it made me wonder:

What would happen if one of the Marvel/SHAZAM family were, by chance, hit with a normal bolt of lightning? Would they transform, or would they be injured?

On a similar note, what would happen to the Flash if he was hit by the magical lightning?

No one?

Well I think they would be injured by normal lightning,since it isn't magical (and can easily be seen as an attack).

If the flash were hit by magical lightning he would also be injured and maybe even gravely injured/killed/

@cameron83: I think I read somewhere that any magical lightning could transform him even if he doesn't say the word is that true?

Hm...I never heard of that.

It COULD be true,I just don't know of it.I'll look it up right now...

This is what wiki says:

As he was transformed by magic lightning, Captain Marvel was shown in several stories to be susceptible to both high-powered magic, which can weaken or de-power him, and to significantly high voltages of electricity which can revert him back to Billy Batson form. Likewise, lightning could transform Billy to Captain Marvel.
