Billy Batson Week 2022
Use #billybatsonweek and #bb82week to participate!
This February marks the 82nd anniversary of Billy Batson as Captain Marvel debuting in Whiz Comics #2. Here's seven different prompts to commemorate the occasion!
Day 1 ✦ February 20, 2022
Golden Age + Fawcett Comics
Where it first began! This day celebrates the inception and legacy of Captain Marvel by Fawcett Comics.
Day 2 ✦ February 21, 2022
Iconic Team-ups + Dream Teams
From brownstone buildings to towers in space, Billy has had his fare share of home bases. What are some team-ups you adored, and ones you wished could have happened ages ago?
Day 3 ✦ February 22, 2022
The Boy and the Man + “Henshin Hero”
A “Henshin Hero” has distinct normal and powered forms, and can actively switch between the two — there’s none more iconic when it comes to Billy and his champion form! This is a day to celebrate the duality between both of them.
Day 4 ✦ February 23, 2022
Big Red Cheese + “The Cape”
The embodiment of the classic Golden era superhero, "The Cape” is a trope used to evoke admiration amongst other good guys. Boy scout. Good-at-heart. Whatever term you use, today's a time to appreciate what really makes Billy the Big Red Cheese.
Day 5 ✦ February 24, 2022
Shazamily + Loved Ones
A day of appreciation for the famous “Shazam Family” built over the decades.
Day 6 ✦ February 25, 2022
Memorable Moments + Celebrating 82 Years
Spanning universes and retcons and whatever else, what is your most memorable moment featuring Billy Batson?
Day 7 ✦ February 26, 2022
Say the Word, Feel the Power!
The very essence of Billy Batson is that he loves to share, and that it’s in his nature to do so. Use this last day as a free for all for any character in the DC Extended Universe alongside Billy. Maybe they’ve been given a chance at using the Power themselves!
Because this is on such short notice, late posts will definitely be allowed anytime from weeks to months after! All content from writing to art to graphics are encouraged. Feel free to even disregard these prompts if they don’t fit your needs in favor of another way to celebrate. Be sure to use the tags #billybatsonweek and #bb82week so everyone can appreciate your work!
You look at me and you're like, ‘Why so dark? You're a disabled foster kid, you've got it all.’
Decided to remake this after a while! I couldn't find the exact scene for the second but eh. I think it turned out all right, though.
