Something interesting I headcanon about the Lightning with Billy is that it’s magic, and as most things with magic, intent matters. In this way, the Lightning can sort of change it’s properties. If Billy wants the lightning to hurt someone between him and it, it will. This accounts for when Billy says Shazam, but it doesn’t hurt someone or something, verses when he purposefully shoves someone in the way of the lightning and it does.
So the sudden flash of lightning usually won’t hurt people around him, or damage property because he doesn’t want it too. It’s when he does want it too that transforming via lightning bolt becomes dangerous for his enemies.
FROM THE INBOX: “ i just wanna know if you think they have belly buttons ” ( Melvin @ Billy ) / @amorevoices
“Well I definitely think they could have bellybuttons, but I’m not sure there’s any way to check that unless we get real up close.”
Which was probably the least-safe way possible to figure out if alligators had belly buttons. Though, the Cap could defintiely do it. The gator wouldn’t even be able to bite him! It would probably be safer to google the answer.
“We could always check online if they have belly buttons!”
Anyways, idk how much fics are going to be created for this series, but we’ll see. Updates are slow because of school. I’ve got three (I Took It as a Taunt, Remember Way Back in School? and Isn’t Life so Fucking Inconsistent?) planned rn. Titles are inspired by Lovejoy’s songs.
It’s plain old Dadstantine content with Billy Batson.

FROM THE INBOX: You've heard of hit and run, but this is a kiss and leap! Haha! - Mabel to Billy / @briilliance
Billy doesn’t even need to think, he just throws out his arms and catches her, by the waist, lifting his girlfriend up and spinning her around, only to imedeately lose his balance and fall over into the grass outside the high school.
He laughed, grinning up at the girl with lightning struck eyes.
Summer had just begun, and it was a stroke of luck that Billy had made it back from his off world mission just in time to greet his girlfriend after her last day of school.
“I thought I was supposed to be the one surprising you!”
FROM THE INBOX: “ this is just as horrifying as i thought it would be ” @ Billy / @hyperkiinetiic
“I actually wasn’t expecting this to be that horrifying, but y’know, now that you put it that way. You’re absolutely right. That suuucked.”
Or it was totally awesome, it really depended on who you asked, and if you asked the good Captain, he would say it sucked because he was tired after monitor duty on the Watchtower, and then this happened as soon as he got back to earth. Why couldn’t magic and demonic forces and junk just take a vacation?
“At least it’s over. . . You wanna get hotdogs or something?”
technically an error but more than anything I though it was pretty interesting, I’m willing to bet that black line is how the edge of a piece of tape was interpreted by a printing machine, likely it was cut out from a different section and taped down on this panel
more of a crack prompt, but do you think billy batson can say emojis out loud because of the wisdom of solomon???? the pronounciation/saying the emojis’s weird and disoriented but for some reason everybody knows whats he’s saying
batman: captain marvel, are you even listening
batman: how in the world
*batman and green lantern arguing during a meeting, with obvious sexual tension in the air*

GL: what the fuck?????
green arrow: ok, let’s play guess the word, cap, you go first

billy: 👨, 👁 🥺🍜👉 now
wonder woman: i speak many languages and this is not one of them
WW: someone please translate
billy, absolutely done /w translating his emoji words: man, i need ramen right now
Me: Billy guards his secret identity with his life.
Billy: has either intentionally or accidentally revealed his secret identity to every single one of his personal enemies without fail.
Me: . . . There’s a headcanon to unpack there about Billy hiding his secret identity from people he respects / who respect him because he’s afraid of losing their respect or trust if they find out he’s just a kid.
Billy has a bit of a caffiene addiction. It wasn’t super intentional, but well, you get a lot of late nights as a superhero, and Billy has a fondness for those grossly oversweet gas station cappuccino’s. He hates black coffee and needs to dump at least a cup of sugar into it before he’ll drink it, but sometimes he just needs that little extra push to get through his day.
