Injustice: Gods Among Us Shazam Moves, Combos and Strategy Guide

As of the New 52 universe, the superhero known as Captain Marvel has been rebranded simply as Shazam. Shazam is basically the modern-day version of Black Adam, as the new avatar for the powers of the Wizard Council. He is actually a child named Billy Batson, who was given the power to turn into his superhero persona by saying the name of the wizard Shazam.

Injustice: Gods Among Us Shazam Moves, Combos and Strategy

Shazam is blessed with the powers of six ancient gods; the genius of Solomon, the strength of Hercules, the unbreakable will of Atlas, the lightning blasts of Zeus, the power of Achilles and the speed of Mercury. You can imagine what kinds of powers he’s got.

With the abilities of the world’s mightiest mortal, Billy will have to struggle with magical threats as well as his own youthful naïveté. To truly tap into his power, this orphan who’s always kept people at arm’s length will have to learn what family really is.

“Young Billy Batson was chosen by a mysterious wizard to become the Earth’s Mightiest Mortal. By saying “Shazam” Billy assumes the power of six ancient gods.”
