The wizard council is destined to find one soul worthy of becoming the next grand high wizard to save the planet from destruction against the seven deadly sins. Decades pass before they find a young kid who’s pure in heart and soul. That just happens to be fourteen-year-old Billy Batson (Angel). He’s led a complicated life running from one foster home to the next in search of his birth mom. Just as he arrives at the home of a new foster family, he finds himself transported to another world and given the powers of the superhero by the current grand wizard. Back on Earth, Billy finds that when he says the word “Shazam!” he morphs into the body of an adult superhero (Levi). His foster brother, Freddy (Grazer), is obsessed with superheroes and teaches Billy how to use the new powers he finds himself wielding. Hot on his heels is our token villain, Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong), and his seven deadly sins who come in the form of gargoyle monsters.
