The wizard also gave him an onus to defending the Rock of Eternity. So how does it work? Well, whenever Billy says, “Shazam”, he immediately gets into a powerful being with amazing abilities to even fend off Superman.

The name ‘Shazam’ is an acronym that derives from the 6 mythological figures who endows him with powers. He is bestowed with the wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the endurance of Atlas, the might of Zeus, the audacity of Achilles and the speed of Mercury.
