    Default Shazam and the Shazam Family Appreciation 2020

    Hey It’s Philadelphia’s latest hero team the Lighting League...no wait the Shocking Seven...ah the heck with it lets just call them Shazam and his amazing Shazam Family. While they are fairly new they’ve made some decent appearances in their ongoing(when it’s not delayed), Doomsday Clock(when that’s not delayed), and the Shazam movie and sequel(hopefully not to be delayed because I’m noticing a bad pattern).

    Members: Billy, Mary, Freddy, Darla, Eugene, and Pedro...and apparently a talking tiger

    Volume Appearances: Vol 0/Origins(Collects their new 52 Justice League Backstory) and the current Shazam! Ongoing

    Suffice to say without giving away spoilers, no the family really hasn’t really established hero names for everyone as far as I can recall. Mainly the series has been doing a lot of lore and plot building for the magic realms and for what’s to come in the future when it comes to villains/plot, the SHAZAM family, and Billy himself.

    Superboy Prime? Meh.

    Geoff Johns' updated versions of The Monster Society of Evil? Now THAT is something to get excited about.

    Issue #10 involved some pleasant teasers, but I want MORE.

    It sucks that the other members of the Shazam-ily don’t have superhero names. I hope they still use the name Mary Marvel.

    It's hard to come up with dynamic names with "Shazam" compared to "Marvel."

    How about these:
    Billy - Shazam/Captain Shazam
    Mary - Lady Shazam
    Freddy - Kid Shazam
    Darla - Black Shazam
    Pedro - King Shazam
    Eugene - Super Shazam
    Skeeter: Hey time traveling O5 members of the X-Men We don't take kindly to people who create a time paradox around here!

    Bartender: Now calm down Skeeter they aint hurtin nobody.

    Skeeter: No! I wanna know som'in from the "O5" How come you cant go back to your own timeline in the first place and how come when Reed Richards "fixed" the universe you wasnt put back and how come the changes that happn to you dont happn to your present day selves?

    I hope so, too. Mary Marvel is my all-time favorite:

    They can't. The name, as well as CM3, doesn't make sense when Billy isn't called Captain Marvel.

    No. Absolutely not. Those names make Pedro and Eugene sound superior to Billy, make Freddy sound like the youngest (which is actually Darla) and is racist towards Darla.

    The DC Database Fandom wiki actually calls Mary "Lady Shazam", which I think came from a guidebook. Never mentioned in-story though, and doesn't make a lot of sense since there's another girl. The wiki also calls Freddy "Shazam Jr" for the same reason, which likewise doesn't make sense as he's not the youngest like the pre-Flashpoint version was.

    Personally I'd go with colours. Billy would just be Shazam, or Captain Shazam so that he has a name that can be used without accidentally triggering a depower (since they can't actually SAY Shazam). Mary would be Red Shazam, Freddy Blue Shazam. The others would be Green, Violet, and Silver Shazam, and they could just call themselves by colour (with "Cap" for Billy).

    Why not just recicle the concept idea of the Lieutenants Marvel as the Lieutenants Shazam?
    Because, face it, they "Marvel" are not going to be.

    On the Monster Society, seems like Johns digged out searching for old members of the Billy Batsons rogues gallery. I didn't recognize everyone but I could found old faces as Jeeprs, King Kull and Mr. Atom. Who else did you recognize?

    They're all have names on the wiki.

    But in book they're all Shazam.

    Yeah I noticed that when making the thread but for the life of me I couldn’t find anywhere where the names in the wiki were actually used. Maybe I missed it or ignored it but it was weird.

    Those names are just for the readers to use. In universe they're all Shazam. Like multiple people using the Flash name.

    Anyway here's the monsters, larger on google.
