Death Battle Fanon Wiki

Be good, and good will follow." That's what my parents always used to tell me. But you know, Mr Kent, I was good before they were taken from me, I was good at the foster home, and I was good about fifteen minutes ago! I'm starting to think being good isn't good for me...
~ Billy Batson

And you Superman, you were more than a hero. I idolized you. I wanted to be you. Whenever I was out there, facing down the bad guys, I'd think, "What would Superman do?" Now I know. I believe in fair play. I believe in taking people at their word and giving them the benefit of the doubt. Back home, I've come up against my share of pretty nasty bad guys, but I never had to act the way they did to win a fight. I always found another way. I guess I'm saying I like being a hero. A symbol.
~ Justice League Unlimited

You know, you never been any good against magic... And magic's what I'm all about.
~ Shazam to Superman, during their fight

Shazam, also known as Billy Batson, and originally known as Captain Marvel, is a superhero from DC Comics. He previously fought Captain Marvel in the 107th episode of DEATH BATTLE!, Captain Marvel VS Shazam.

  • Despite being powerful and fueled by multiple gods; Shazam is still mortal and still has limits. His victories against Superman are primarily due to Superman restraining himself and Superman's vulnerability against godly magic. Superman has actually won the majority of their duels. [1] This is confirmed when Black Adam (who has the same powers as Shazam) was unable to harm Superboy-Prime because Prime is not vulnerable to magic.
