    For a modern-day aesthetic, I can agree with this.
    But I'll always & forever prefer the Original version...

    Maybe that's how they're going to explain Billy being at Teen Titans Academy. The family always calls each other by their real first names - reality ensues, they're outed. No more secret identities, everyone knows that Shazam Family are teenagers.

    Id also assume its the result of secret six/hell arisen and Death Metal. Thanks to the Batman who laughs characters like Batman and Superman know for a fact that he is a teen because he transformed right in front of them.

    As for Death Metal, people got their past memories again so people might have past memories of Billy that all but confirm he is a teenager.

    The new continuity is here to stay, especially with the movie using it.

    Earth 5 is still around though, for whenever they want to touch back in those type of stories.

    Yeah, I kind of miss Billy and Mary being actual brother and sister.

    I don't know if they can still establish it in the movie but I didn't really care for Mary being so much older than the other kids.

    At least the Lego Shazam movie still used her as his sister.

    Wasn't Mary adopted previously, then ran away? And considering CC Batson's character, I can easily see him getting Mary's mother pregnant, leaving, getting together with Billy's mother and getting her pregnant, then abandoning her too. Both kids end up in the foster care system, and many years later end up being taken in by the same family - Mary some time before Billy. And neither know that they're actually brother and sister. Mary would be Billy's older half-sister instead of his twin, but I think that's probably the best they can do.

    Pre-CoIE, I think the Fawcett characters were from Earth-S and the Quality Comics characters were from Earth-X.

    But at some later date, DC seems to have become allergic to Earth designations involving letters in stead of numbers, so I think "Earth-S" became "Earth 5" (maybe because an "S" sort of looks like a "5"?) and "Earth-X" wound up as "Earth 10" (since "10" = "X" in Roman numerals).

    And then there were people who said "Earth-1" is not the same thing as "Earth-One"; those would be two separate earths, but I never understood that argument.

    From the April Solicitation for Teen Titans Academy #2

    written by TIM SHERIDAN
    art and cover by RAFA SANDOVAL
    card stock variant cover by PHILIP TAN
    ON SALE 4/27/21
    $3.99 US | 32 PAGES | FC | DC
    CARD STOCK VARIANT COVER $4.99 US
    The questions mount around the new school formed by the original New Teen Titans: What's going on with Billy Batson's access to the powers of Shazam, what dark secret is Raven's new pupil Dane hiding, and who's masquerading as the new Red X?

    I guess Billy has some issues going on, my personal theory that it is the result of Batman who laughs infection during the Secret Six arc. Billy's power are based on his moral compass or pure of heart, and for a while he got infected with the energy of the Dark Multiverse or essentially pure evil, and then hurt friends and family and attacked Black Adam and the nation of Khandaq. I'm going to assume that may screw with him powers just a tad.

    They did get mentioned in the future State Shazam preview, by the same writer who is also writing Billy in Titans Academy so it’s possible they’d show up.
