Child to archaeologists C.C. and Marilyn Batson, Billy Batson's parents were killed by their assistant, Theo Adam, while on a dig at the tomb of Rameses II at Abu Simbel, Egypt. Separated from his sister and left in the care of his uncle, who later stole his trust fund money and threw him out, Billy eked out an existence in Fawcett City as a newsboy while sleeping in subway terminals. Guided to the Rock of Eternity, Billy was chosen by the wizard Shazam to become the new champion of mankind; bestowing extraordinary power by speaking the wizard's name; transforming the boy into the adult Captain Marvel, a hero possessing the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the courage of Achilles, and the speed of Mercury.
