Captain Marvel first appeared in Whiz Comics #2 1940, originally published by Fawcett Comics and later by DC Comics who said "Captain Marvel looks exactly like Superman, WE'RE SUING YOUR PANTS OFF!" To which Fawcett said, "Sonofa.." and then died. But then Marvel came along and told DC, "We already got Captain Marvel, WE'RE SUING YOUR PANTS OFF!" To which DC said, "Sonofa.. " and changed his name to "Shazam." Billy Batson, radio news reporter, was chosen by a wizard to be a hero. When Billy says "Shazam" he's struck by lightning that magically turns him into Cpt. Marvel/Shazam.
