Shazam. Even if Aquaman were current I'd probably still say Shazam.

Why is it the Aquaman from the Justice League movie? It's a bit unfair.

On-topic, Captain Marvel wins easily, although I would give Aquaman the majority if it were current version.

By the way, the character is never once called Shazam in the entire movie.

@ouroborik:

“say my name”

“BILLY!”

“My other name”

“SHAZAM!”

That is not how that dialogue went.

@ouroborik: "Why is it the Aquaman from the Justice League movie? It's a bit unfair."

I didn't really think it was. Shazam has the advantage in mobility bc of flight obviously, but Justice league Aquaman still generally fought stronger people like steppenwolf and has more experience and skill which is a huge factor

Aquaman, because he is physically superior and more skilled and its hard to say how effectively can Shazam be in battle.

@ouroborik: how did it go?

"Ohh you guys weren't there. The wizard told me his name blah blah blah"

"SHAZAM"

This was said in a joking manner, by the way, it was supposed to be a gag.

Or something along those lines.

Honestly I can't picture a universe where Aquaman is physically stronger than Shazam or Superman. Although he's already confirmed to be weaker than Superman regardless whether he's on land or underwater, I don't know about Shazam.

I dont understand why people are voting Shazam. While in most universes he is a Superman tier character if I am not mistaken, this universe made him really weak, he doesn't have a single stat that is consistent mid tier and he was most likely never meant to be as powerful as Aquaman and the rest of the League considering how they portrayed him in the movie.

@red_ruby_petal: What would you think if he or Black Adam somehow managed to stalemate Superman despite the low feats?

@tethadam: its really up to them, and if they make it seem its consistent for their power level in one of those movies then I would say he is Superman tier. Currently he is faarrr below that.

And they all said Billy. Then he said say the name I say to turn into this guy. Now if he were called that they'd have known the right name to say, wouldn't they? So correcting someone because they said he wasnt called shazam in the movie was correct because even his closest family didnt know to call him that

It would help Shazam a whole lot if there was a scene where Adam was beating Superman and Shazam beat Adam like he did in the Superman Shazam home movie. Only argument I would see against it is Superman holds back but I doubt it given Adam consistently has similar feats to Supes in his incarnations and Clark trying to protect Billy.

Arthur is more skilled but Billy is physically superior through scaling. I'll go with Billy.

@thebestofthebest: I mean theres the Flashpoint and Throne of Atlantis animated movies respectfully. So DCAM.

There's Aqualord as well.

Haven't seen Shazam though. But by word of mouth of the movie Aquaman is physically stronger for now given Sub > Bus
