Captain Marvel is a character in the DC Universe who's been around since the Golden Age. Originally conceived as Fawcett Comics' answer to Superman, he is now owned by DC Comics and the character's mythos has grown strongly in its own right. Billy Batson is a young man who is given incredible powers by the wizard Shazam and only has to speak the name to transform into his alter ego Captain Marvel. Later on this position would go to his successor Freddy Freeman. Most of his comics are named after some variation on "Shazam" because of legal issues with Marvel Comics.
- Shazam! The Monster Society of Evil is Jeff Smith's beautiful and brilliant version of the Captain Marvel legend, a story that brings out the essential elements of the character and reminds us why we fell in love with him in the first place.
- Shazam: The New Beginning is Roy Thomas' original introduction of the Captain Marvel mythos into the DC Universe, retelling his origin story in a four-issue miniseries.
- The Power of Shazam is Jerry Ordway's reboot of the Shazam mythology, a graphic novel updating the character and his supporting cast before his new ongoing series.
- Trials of Shazam is the story of Freddy Freeman becoming the second Captain Marvel after Billy Batson. To prove his worth he must complete challenges held by the Gods themselves and defeat an ancient evil organization in his mortal form.
