Now that it’s in theaters, Shazam! fury of the gods has proven to be a reminder that there are a lot of pretty powerful people in this little corner of the DC universe. Shazam himself is a bit of a riff on Superman, and has many of the same powers, but he’s not the only person in this movie who would give the Justice League a run for his money.
These are the most powerful characters in Shazam! fury of the godsordered from least to most powerful.
Note: This article contains spoilers for Shazam! Fury of the Gods.
7. Mary Bromfield
The oldest of Billy’s siblings, Mary earns her place on this list in part due to her super intelligence. While the force often wins out in big superhero blockbusters like fury of the godsthere is something to be said for the precision with which Mary is able to think through any situation and come up with a solid plan of attack.
Of course, Mary is superpowered in other ways as well, as she inherited all of Billy’s powers to one degree or another.
Aside from Billy, we certainly spent the most time with Freddy out of everyone on Shazamily. And since he already knows a lot about superheroes, he goes into the business of having powers with a bit of a head start.
It’s that enthusiasm that, when combined with the rather extraordinary powers that he actually has, makes for a pretty solid opponent in battle. Of course, Freddy, like Billy, is still a child, which means that his battle strategies are far from perfect.
Anthea, the youngest of the old sisters fighting Shazamily, is never quite firmly on her sisters’ side, though she certainly arrives with them. All three sisters possess ancient powers that make them a major threat to Billy and his family, but Anthea is the youngest, which means she doesn’t benefit from the same accumulation of knowledge that her two sisters have.
That, in combination with the fact that she spends most of the movie trying to help Billy and Freddy, is the reason why she fell a bit further down the list than her sisters.
Hespera is the ostensible leader of this clan of sisters, though she is severely injured midway through. fury of the gods and finally does not get to sit in the final fight. Even so, her strength is undeniable, and she speaks of her powers as her two sisters generally respect her.
However, in terms of her personal power, it seems like she might be a bit weaker than her younger sister, Kalypso, and is definitely no match for the rest of Shazamily when they’re all united. Fortunately for her, she has the ability to take away her powers.
3. Shazam (wizard)
Billy’s powers ultimately come from Shazam, an elderly wizard who only granted the powers because he determined Billy was worthy. Shazam is an ultra-powerful guy who is capable of wielding ancient powers in a way few are able to throughout this franchise.
Unfortunately, Shazam is often reluctant to use that power, choosing instead to bestow it on others whenever he can. He would qualify a little higher if he took some initiative himself, but he rarely chooses to do that.
The middle sister of this ancient trio, Kalypso is actually the longest surviving in fury of the gods. Fueled by anger at the loss of her family, Kalypso fights Billy and nearly defeats him one on one.
Although Kalypso is aided by a massive dragon, his strength clearly rivals the power given to Billy, who in this particular corner of the DC universe is the source from which all other power flows.
We all knew that Billy would have to finish on top here. Although he may not be as strong as someone like Superman, within the Shazam universe, no one has emerged yet who can beat Billy.
Kalypso comes close, true, and Billy is often known for getting into trouble simply because he’s overconfident or acting childish, but when it really counts, Billy is the one to turn to. He is the place from which all other powers flow, so he was the only logical choice for the top of this list.
