Captain Marvel
I am not Shazam.

Whoops! Turns out there's multiple superheroes named Captain Marvel. Are you looking for:

Shazam! (right): The original Captain Marvel, created in The Golden Age of Comic Books. Billy Batson shouts the magic word "SHAZAM!" to call down magic lightning which transforms him into the World's Mightiest Mortal. Now owned by DC Comics, but couldn't be advertised with his real name for years and eventually had it changed to "Shazam" due to...

Captain Mar-Vell (left): Created by Marvel Comics when the trademark on the "Shazam" version lapsed. A Captain in the alien Kree army named Mar-Vell, sent to spy on Earth but coming to use his powers to protect humans. He eventually died of cancer, but has been succeeded by several other heroes to take the "Captain Marvel" name, the most recent one being...

Ms. Marvel (not pictured): The current holder of the name, also from Marvel Comics. Carol Danvers was a longtime Distaff Counterpart to the Mar-Vell version before eventually taking the title of "Captain" herself. Has also been known as "Binary" and "Warbird" at times. Not to be confused with Kamala Khan, who took over the "Ms. Marvel" name from her.

(Apparently, at least one other comics company decided to cash in on the Captain Marvel name, too.)
