    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    In Superman/Shazam! The Return of Black Adam, Clark Kent’s latest interview subject is street kid Billy Batson. What Clark doesn’t know is that Billy is more than a feisty kid with a lot of heart – he has been chosen by an ancient wizard to represent the good of man as the World’s Mightiest Mortal just by invoking the name of the wizard, "Shazam!" Billy’s powers come none-too-soon, as he also discovers he’s being pursued by a centuries’ old, murderous villain, Black Adam – a foe so powerful, even Superman can’t stop him alone.

But I agree this was because I felt a little biased against this, thinking, it would be natural for a boy use something like this if he admires the World's Greatest Hero... My son uses Superman or Batman pijamas almost daily! Also, I felt it was very gratuitous the way Clark Kent was related to Billy Batson in the movie, perhaps this is my greatest "but".
