DC SHOWCASE: SUPERMAN/SHAZAM - THE RETURN OF BLACK ADAM
Make your stand against evil!
Chosen the world’s protector against the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man – pride, envy, greed, hatred, selfishness,
laziness and injustice – young Billy Batson accepts his destiny as Captain Marvel. Battling alongside Superman against
nefarious Black Adam, Billy soon discovers the challenge super heroes ultimately face: is it revenge or justice?

Bruce Timm (Superman Doomsday) is executive producer and Joaquim Dos Santos (Justice League, Avatar:
The Last Airbender) is director of the first series of DC Showcase titles. Michael Jelenic (Wonder Woman)
wrote the 22-minute script.
