This section of the history takes place during Flashpoint, a massive crossover event set in an alternate timeline to the mainstream DCU. History was completely changed when Professor Zoom finally found a way to erase his nemesis the Flash without harming his own legacy.
Eugene Choi is an Asian-American boy living in Fawcett City. After history is rewritten by the Flash in Flashpoint, radically different versions of Captain Marvel and his family are introduced. Eugene Choi along with his five friends Billy Batson, Pedro Peña, Darla Dudley, Freddy Freeman, Mary Batson, and pet cat Tawky Tawny are trapped in a subway car that transports them to the Rock of Eternity. There they meet the wizard Shazam who grants each of the children with a different one of the wizard's attributes. Eugene Choi due to his nautral intelligence and inquisitive nature is given the wisdom of Solomon.
Cyborg, the Flash, Batman, Enchantress and Element Woman meet with the group of children and ask for their help. Billy is swayed to the heroes' cause after he uses his abilities to see what the timeline is supposed to be like while stabilizing the Flash's memories, as they were adjusting to the current timeline. Billy convinces Eugene and the other children to help. They come together and shout "Shazam" and they merge into Captain Thunder. The heroes and Captain Thunder travel to what is left of Europe to stop the war between the Atlantean and the Amazons. Captain Thunder fights with the Amazon leader Wonder Woman to a draw before being transformed back into the six children by Enchantress, who is revealed to be a traitor. Before the kids can reform Captain Thunder, Billy is stabbed by the Penthesilea one of the Amazons killing the young boy. This left Pedro and the rest of the group devastated.
The DC Universe heavily changed its continuity into the DCnU following the events of Flashpoint in 2011. This was part of an effort to make storylines more accessible to newer readers, beginning with the New 52. This new timeline combines elements from the DCU, Vertigo Universe and Wildstorm Universe while drastically changing the origins and histories of characters.
The Flash's changes to reality created a new world where Eugene's life had significantly changed. In this new world, Eugene Choi is one of the Vasquezes' foster children along with Mary, Freddie, Pedro and Darla. He meets and one of the new foster children Billy Batson. Billy does not get on well with his new family due to the death of his own. Eugene is considered very intelligent, and he tells his friends he loves to read, but only non-fiction. Eugene has the belief that school is beyond rudimentary, and is surprised that some of the teachers, as he often corrects the work at teaching practices. He is later bullied by the Breyer Brothers for not failing a test, but Eugene claims he doesn't want to mess up his perfect scores.
