Captain Marvel

Main difference is that, in the old days, SHAZAM was not just an adult version of Billy Batson with super powers.

Now it’s closer in concept to the Tom Hanks’ movie, “Big.”

In the new Shazam movie, I wonder if they still call him "Captain Marvel". In the Flashpoint animated movie, they called him, Captain Thunder. Then Wonder Woman defeated him and stabbed Billy Batson in the chest in front of all the other chosen children. Ew, so much for alternative timelines.
