Captain Marvel

When i was a kid there was a Hero called SHAZAM! OR so i thought, turns out Shazam is a codeword for A little kid to become Captain Marvel, Earths Mightiest Mortal. Talk about Wish Fulfilment. On the plus side, the big red cheese can kick Supes’ Ass, so he’s okay by me. Oh, and if you ever played Mortal Kombat v DC, Captain Marvel is super cheap.

Captain Marvel (Billy Batson)

SFX: The Shazam Attack – Step up Magical Lightning to d12. On a successful Grab attempt or Dodge against doom pool, use the D12 as effect die against target. If Grab/Dodge Fails see SHAZAM limit below, but do not gain a PP.
Limit: SHAZAM! by uttering his magic word, shutdown SHAZAM power-set and Combat Expert and gain 1PP. Recover on opportunity.

Combat Expert.

Call down the Magical Lightning
1 xp…Use the Magical Lightning in an action pool for the first time.
3 xp…Power-down with the Shazam! limit.
10 xp…USe the Shazam attack to defeat the main enemy for an Arc, or render Captain Marvel powerless against same enemy.

You’re really just a kid? aka The Big Red Cheese
1 xp…When act like a kid for first time in a scene.
3 xp…When Endanger self or other heroes to do something Heroic or idealistic, but probably stupid
10 xp…When an act of Heroic Self-sacrifice save the day, or dooms the heroes to probable destruction.

Captain Marvel is also pretty kickass, but not so much as Black Adam.



  1. Hmm… “Shazam Attack” says “don’t gain a PP”, but the SHAZAM limit gives back 2PP. Is the second PP because of Combat Expert or is Billy supposed to get 1PP back from the SHAZAM limit like Black Mary?

  2. Hmmm, he should only get 1pp for the limit. I gave 2 to adam because it was rare. The idea is if he uses it as an attack but gets it wrong he should then also get PP.

  3. …If he’s supposed to gain a PP, then you’ll want to take off “but don’t gain a PP” (leftover from the 2PP version, I assume).

    1. he is only meant to gain a pp if shutdowning the powers. But if he fails the attack he doesnt gain the pp.

  4. how about doing a classic version? this is the 1990s and later incarnation that has Cap as Billy. They uses to be separate individuals.
