Serious Shazam question

#1 Posted by justanormalguy (114 posts) - - Show Bio

With his new name being now Shazam, if someone were to ask his name and he told them, would he turn back into Billy? Didn't think about that one, did you comic writers? Fail.

That has been resolved at least since 2007, so no, it isn't a problem and definitely not a fail. Also moved to the Billy Batson board.

@Morpheus_: That's if they keep that in. Robinson missed it in Cry for Justice.

Can't say I'm surprised.

Did Freddie actually appear in CfJ, though? I forget. All I recall is the creepy relationship between Prometheus posing as Shazam and Supergirl.

@Morpheus_: Yeah. Freddy was gagged. Then released and Shazamed. I was like MEGAFACEPALM when I see it.

How has it been resolved...?

@justanormalguy: In Trials of Shazam, Billy took Shazam's stead as Lord Marvel. Making the position of Captain Marvel open. Freddy took on a role of quests to become Shazam. During one of the trials he summoned the power of Shazam via his will. So he could say the name and it wouldn't strike him, but he could will it to come and the bolt would strike.

I remember Freddy becoming Captain Marvel but was referred to as SHAZAM (Trials of SHAZAM) and insisted he be called Freddy (Cry for Justice, I believe)
