Shazam!

Summary

An orphan boy Billy Batson is chosen by the wizard Shazam to become his champion because he is pure of heart; whenever he speaks the name Shazam he transforms into an adult with superpowers, or back into a boy; but Billy is pursued by a man, Thaddeus, who was rejected by the same wizard many years ago; Billy must protect his foster family and his city from the evil forces Thaddeus seeks to unleash upon the world.

Review

Consistently entertaining characters engaged in many suspenseful battles, marred only by how Billy's moral compass early on drifts toward self-promotion, which contradicts his pure of heart status.
