In Shazam! (2019), Billy shares his powers with his siblings. It seems like each sibling gets a unique ability:

  • Freddy - Flight
  • Darla - Speed
  • Pedro - Strength
  • Mary - Unknown
  • Eugene - Lightning

They all are strong and fast, but these traits were specific to each one during the film. Does this mean that they all have unique powers (so, for example, only Eugene will ever use lightning), or was this just the powers they were more attuned to, and could use almost by instinct?

Both theories make sense to me. On one, it's as if each power of SHAZAM gets divided by the siblings (possibly Mary inherits Solomon's wisdom, and they all share Atlas' toughness and Achilles' courage). On the other hand, Eugene (geeky hacker) got electric powers, Freddy (crippled) flew, Pedro (bulky and silent) got jacked, and Darla (youngest, probably not very confrontational) got speed.

  • I think that the theory and observations you have expressed in the post are on point correct. I cannot see how anyone would answer that unless the movie creators themselves have talked about it. According to me I stand with the point that it surely seems like they have received unique abilities. Also it seems like you have really dived deep in shazam – RC0993 Apr 10 '19 at 10:38
  • @RC0993 There may be creator comments I haven't found, or comic information I haven't read (and don't want to search for to avoid story spoilers). I'm hoping this will get answered, even if the answer is something like "We don't know" :P – BlueMoon93 Apr 10 '19 at 10:53

    I don't know how the next movie will deal with their powers, but according to wikipedia they all have the same powers as Billy, but Pedro, Eugene and Darla have added powers. Regarding the movie, I think it would be weird if they could use their full potential in the first try of their powers, since it took weeks for Billy to learn using them. – Baku Apr 11 '19 at 3:47
