- This article is about the re-imagined Captain Marvel from the Flashpoint universe, for the earlier version of the character see Captain Thunder (William Fawcett)
|Real name:||Eugene Choi|
|First Appearance:||Flashpoint #4|
|Created by:||Geoff Johns|
|Portrayed by:||Steve Blum|
When Eugene Choi, Pedro Pẽna, Mary Batson, Freddy Freeman, Billy Batson and Darla Dudley say "SHAZAM" they become the hero called Captain Thunder.
During the Flashpoint storyline, there was a major change to both Captain Marvel and Billy Batson.
In this new world, Billy, Freddy and Mary were friends with three children: Eugene Choi, Pedro Peña and Darla Dudley. They were caught on a subway car that took them to the Rock of Eternity. The wizard Shazam gave each one of the children a special attribute of a great hero, and Billy obtained the Courage of Achilles. By saying the word "Shazam" together, the six children formed a composite hero named Captain Thunder.
At some point, Captain Thunder received a scar in the face during a battle against Wonder Woman, who is leading the Amazons against Aquaman and the Atlanteans.
The children are approached by a group of superheroes - Cyborg, the Flash, Batman, Enchantress and Element Woman - seeking their help. Billy is swayed to the heroes' cause after he uses his abilities to see what the timeline is supposed to be like while stabilising the Flash's memories, (which are changing to incorporate the new timeline rather than the original history that he is trying to restore), and convinces the other children to help. They transform into Captain Thunder and join the heroes to stop the war between Aquaman's Atlantean army and Wonder Woman's Amazonian forces. Captain Thunder briefly fights Wonder Woman to a draw before being transformed back into the six children by Enchantress, who is revealed to be a traitor. Before the kids can reform Captain Thunder, Billy is stabbed by the Amazon Penthesileia, killing him.
Powers and Abilities
The new Marvel Family consists of six children who were caught on a subway car that took them to the Rock of Eternity, and as a result each of the youths were granted with a different one of the wizard's attributes. An Asian-American boy named Eugene Choi possesses the wisdom of Solomon, an overweight Latino boy named Pedro Pẽna possesses the strength of Hercules, Mary Batson possesses the stamina of Atlas, Freddy Freeman possesses the power of Zeus, Billy Batson possesses the courage of Achilles, and an African-American girl named Darla Dudley possesses the speed of Mercury. Tawky Tawny is also shown with them on a leash held by Pedro. By saying the word "Shazam" together, the six children possess the collective ability to turn into Captain Thunder, this timeline's version of Captain Marvel, who has a scarred face which he claims is due to Wonder Woman, who in this timeline is a villain. The transformation also affects Tawney.
