• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

I am not Shazam.[1]


Neither am I, you know.

Whoops! Turns out there are several superheroes named Captain Marvel. Are you looking for:

  • Shazam! (left): The original, created in The Golden Age of Comic Books. Billy Batson shouts the magic word "SHAZAM!" to call down magic lightning which transforms him into the World's Mightiest Mortal. Now owned by DC Comics, but couldn't be advertised with his real name for years and eventually had it changed to "Shazam" due to...
  • At least one other comics company decided to cash in on the Captain Marvel name, too.

Please update links to point to the correct Captain Marvel.
