Shazam is the alter ego of Billy Batson. He's an orphaned boy who can transform into a grown man with superhuman strength, speed and other superhuman skills. Granted this ability to be a champion of justice by the wizard Shazam, he transforms by speaking the word “Shazam". This is an acronym representing the six “immortal elders” - Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles, and Mercury. They are all powerful characters from the mythology of different cultures.
Billy Batson had a rough childhood, his parents having been murdered by their assistant, Theo Adam. He was then separated from his sister and had his trust fund stolen by his uncle Ebenezer, who then threw him out. Through a series of events, Billy meets the old wizard who had spent countless years fighting for justice himself. He then bestows his powers upon Billy. When Billy Batson transforms into the powerful and skilled Shazam, he inherits certain abilities from each of the elders. These include wisdom, strength, stamina, courage, speed, power, and even teleportation.
As Shazam, Billy faces his nemesis, Black Adam, along with numerous other enemies. He attempts to bring justice to his murdered parents and to many others who had fallen victim to evildoers. Over the years, Shazam fought alongside the Justice League of America and the Justice Society of America, among other groups.
With the right compression gear, you may not be able to transform from Billy Batson to Shazam, but you can still work out with the best of them.
