Synopsis:
Working for Dr. Sivana, the parents of Billy and Mary Batson, along with Theo Adam, explore the tomb of Ramses II. When a mysterious scarab stirs memories from a past life within Adam, he murders the Batsons and takes the scarab for himself. Unfortunately, the Batsons had the other half of the scarab hidden within a stuffed toy which was shipped to america. When Theo Adam begins huting down Billy Batson for the other half of the scarab, Billy is contacted by the mysterious wizard Shazam and granted great powers. Will Billy be able to control his new powers and bring his parents' murderer to justice when Theo Adam reawakens the power of Shazam within himself to become Black Adam?

Reprinted/Collected in:
The Power of SHAZAM! (1995) OGN SC

Notes:
This is the definitive post-Crisis DC origin for Captain Marvel, Black Adam and Mary Marvel. It "retcons the retcon" given to post-Crisis Captain Marvel, returning Captain Marvel to an origin more similar to the Fawcett origin in WHIZ Comics (1940) #2.
