Comment: DC Captain Marvel, "All"
DC Captain Marvel issue All
Captain Marvel, a once-famous DC comics character who has been used less as of late, appears to be around the age of Batman or Superman. However, his secret identity is that of Billy Batson, a teenager, "around Robin's (Tim Drake) age", according to Batman. Upon saying the magic word "Shazam," Billy ...more

From what I understand, that's actually a common misconception about Captain Marvel. Billy Batson doesn't actually change age; he simply switches places with Captain Marvel. Where Billy goes after saying "Shazam" or where the Captian is before Billy says "Shazam" is a question better left to someone more in the know.

As a comic book fan since my own childhood, I feel I must weigh in on this. I personally believe Billy Batson and Captain Marvel are the same person, not two people who switch places. I view the Captain as an aspect of Billy's personality, much like Mr. Hyde is of Dr. Jekyll's. (Of course, I'm only using Jekyll/Hyde as an example. Neither Billy nor Cap are evil.)

Sounds like I'll be leaving it alone. :-)

Well, like I said, I'm not that well-versed in DC Comics history. It's just that the subject came up in Kingdom Come (which was a great miniseries, btw). I'd dig it up to find the part where it comes up but... I don't know where it is at the moment. I didn't mean to stir up any trouble. (-_-)'
