In Whiz Comics #125, we find Billy Batson out for a walk when a horrible storm comes up all of the sudden. Billy sees a young lady about to be killed by a falling tree and he says, "Shazam!" - but nothing happens! Billy rescues the young lady himself. Billy says, "Shazam!" multiple times and still there is no magic lightning and no transformation into Captain Marvel. Billy asks, "Why doesn't Zeus hear me and send down the lightning bolt?"
Did you know that Zeus throws the magic lightning down to earth, transforming Billy Batson into Captain Marvel? I didn't until I read this edition of Whiz Comics! For an additional article on Billy's transformation, click here!
