|Whiz Comics #2|
Did you know that the huge statues of The Seven Deadly Enemies of Man were not just mere statues? We first see the statues in Whiz Comics #2 when Billy makes his first visit to Shazam. Billy walks by them in what is called the Ancient Hall of Statues. Then, in Captain Marvel Adventures #137 we learn that they are actually seven evil gods that Shazam had turned into stone!
In Captain Marvel Adventures #137, King Kull has released the evil gods from Shazam's stone bondage and it is up to Captain Marvel to save the day! Billy goes to Shazam to get advice from him on how to battle Kull and end his evil plot. It is in this visit that Shazam reveals what the statues really are!
