Captain Shazam

Real Name


First Appearance

Fatman, the Human Flying Saucer #2 (June, 1967)

Original Publisher

Lightning Comics

Created by

C. C. Beck and Otto Binder


"Captain Shazam" was a title promised by Lightning Comics, however the company folded before it ever saw print. Given that Lightning Comics was founded by C. C. Beck & Otto Binder, the creators of Captain Marvel (who famously shouts "Shazam!" as a battle cry), the comparisons between the two can be more than assumed. However, with the title not making it to print, no one will ever know for certain.


Having been released in 1967 by a company no longer in existence, the character can be considered an Orphan Work.
