William 'Billy' Batson is the young alter ego of the hero, Captain Marvel (Shazam). 

Background

Billy Batson followed a stranger into a subway one night, and the subway led Billy to a cave, with the stranger nowhere to be seen. Billy came upon an old man in the cave. The man stated that he was the old wizard, Shazam, and that he was close to death. Shazam chose Billy to be his successor, and granted Billy the ability to become divinely empowered, just by speaking the wizard's name. The wizard had only just finished granting Billy his powers, when a large rock crushed the wizard right on his throne, killing him. The wizard assured Billy that he could be reached by lighting the torch next to his throne. Billy then became Captain Marvel, also known as Shazam, and became a super hero.
