Billy Batson Quotes:
Shazam [Ch. 1]: I am Shazam.
Billy Batson: My name is...
Shazam [Ch. 1]: All is known to me. Your name is Billy Batson. You did not pry into the secret of the Scorpion. That is why I am here.
Billy Batson: But where did you come from?
Shazam [Ch. 1]: Out of the past, my son. Down through the ages to guard the secret of the Scorpion.
Shazam [Ch. 1]: It is your duty to see that the Curse of the Scorpion is not visited upon innocent people.
Billy Batson: My duty?
Shazam [Ch. 1]: Yes, so long as the Golden Scorpion can fall into the hands of selfish men, it is the duty of Captain Marvel to protect the innocent from its evil use.
Billy Batson: But who is Captain Marvel?
Shazam [Ch. 1]: You are, my son. All that is necessary is to repeat my name, Shazam. By its repetition, you will become Captain Marvel and take on the virtues you see recorded there.
[He points to a marble carving]
Shazam [Ch. 1]: The wisdom of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the stamina of Atlas, the power of Zeus, the great courage of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. You must never call upon this power except in the service of right. To do so will bring the Scorpion's curse upon your own head. And now my son, repeat my name and return to the rescue of your friends.
Billy Batson: SHAZAM!
