Call him Captain Marvel or Shazam; it’s same. Why? Let’s dig some past.
Captain Marvel is a fictional character from American comics. Captain Marvel firstly appeared in Whiz Comics#2 that was published by Fawcett Comics in the year 1940. In that, he was a boy named Billy Batson, who by saying the magical words “Shazam” can transform into a costumed superhuman. However, Fawcett stopped the character after a lawsuit was filed against them by DC Comics in 1953 who claimed that Captain Marvel was the copy of their fictional character Superman. But in 1972 DC licensed the character from Fawcett and was brought under publication by them. Since then DC has integrated the character to DC Universe and had tried to revive the character several times. Later on due to the trademark issues with Marvel, as they also had a character named Captain Marvel, DC renamed its character as Shazam. DC officially launched Shazam in its comic books, later in 2011.
Since then Shazam appears in DC comics as former Captain Marvel. The character has been featured into two television series, probably the series adaption and in 2019 will be debuting in a self-titled feature film by Warner Bros.
