Context

These are our ooooooold, gisted notes about Captain Marvel, Jr.. These were chiefly meant as a stab at his game stats.

Essentially it’s a quick snapshot of his rough numbers circa the year 2000. Which can be useful, but isn’t a writeups.org-grade character profile.

If you were looking for another Captain Marvel, see our guide to Captain Marvels.


Personality

Freddy Freeman was good at everything he did. He was a school athlete, scholar, popular with the girls, etc.. He had everything going for him, until Captain Nazi crippled him, and killed his grandfather.

Freddy would have died too – if Mary and Billy had not saved his life, and petitioned Shazam to give him a part of the Marvel power.

As Captain Marvel Jr., Freddy really enjoys his powers. In his normal ID, his legs are crippled, so being Captain Marvel Jr. is a preferred alternative. He often has to be told to power down by Billy or Mary, because if it were up to him, he’d stay Captain Marvel Jr. all the time.

Relationships

He is appreciative of his gift however. He mostly respects that he has to use it in limited amounts so the other Marvels can operate. But Freddy is definitely a hot-head, quick to temper, and is obnoxiously sure of himself.

His grandfather brought him up with good morals however, as Freddy is not a bad guy. He usually knows what the right thing to do is, and tries to do it. He wanted to kill Captain Nazi for what the villain did to him and his grandfather, but has since realized that this would be wrong.

He has the hots for Mary, and sees her as someone special – not like the other girls he used to date. Billy does not approve of his attempts to get together with his sister, however.

Freddy is slowly coming to the realization that his “Marvel Family” is the only family he has left, and they are more important to him than he has so far admitted.
