Captain Marvel Adventures was one of several ongoings
during the Golden Age starring Fawcett's Captain Marvel, who was more
popular than Superman in the late 40's and early 50's. The series told
the adventures of young Billy Batson, who by speaking the magic word
"SHAZAM!" would receive super powers. Trouble was, these powers
were kind of similar to those attributed to the Man of Steel. Depite
the fact that Captain Marvel's stories tended to have a lighter and
more humourous element to them, DC was not impressed. After a protracted
plagiarism lawsuit, which DC eventually won, Cap and the rest of the
Marvel Family disappeared from the comic world for about 20 years.
