Earth-S Timeline
  • A tangential Earth to this one, which also has some Earth-1 elements, is Earth-66, timelined in detail in the Appendix below. (thanks to Geoffrey Tolle, John Censullo for the Isis history, Shazamgrrl (particularly the John Freeman entry) and the folks at the Captain Marvel Message Board) ? =================== Cro-Magnon man exterminates the last of the Beastmen, who had been reigning tyrranically over them. Only the Beastman leader, King Kull, survives in an underground chamber where he lay in suspended animation for thousands of years. c. 8,000 BC =================== Mary Marvel and Georgia Sivana travel through time to visit Professor Chal-Pataun of Atlantis, shortly before the island is submerged. [Marvel Family #10] c. 7,000 BC? =================== In Canaan, a young boy named Jebediah is given a magic word, VLAREM, by the gods to become the hero named the Champion, possessing the strength of Voldar, the wisdom of Lumiun, the speed of Arel, the power of Ribalvei, the courage of Elbiam, and the stamina of Marzoah. When Evil, the most dread of gods, appears, able to split into three forms (Terror, Sin, and Wickedness),the gods send Champion to the far future to seek the aid of his successor, Captain Marvel. Together, they defeat Evil and his servants, the Seven Sins. The Champion and Captain Marvel imprison Evil and, in the process, create the Rock of Eternity. For 3,000 years as Jebediah grows older, until the gods he knew were forgotten by all save himself, he becomes a great wizard, taking the name Shazam. A pair of space travelers, Osira and Hefnakhti, are stranded on Earth-2A in prehistoric times. They contribute to the rise of culture in Egypt until a rebellion fomented by a priest named Anankh results in their being captured and mummified alive. In May 1942 Osira is awakened, and bedevils Wonder Woman and the Justice Society before being defeated. [Wonder Woman #231] c. 3,500 BC =================== Captain Marvel visits 1st Dynasty Egypt from 1947 to reveal a thief who robs the pharoah by impersonating the wizard Shazam. c. 2,000 BC =================== During the 12th dynasty, an evil Pharoah, misled by the false priest Mesu, abandons the worship of Osiris and the benevolent gods and makes league with Set. When Prince Amentep speaks out, he is thrown in jail, there receiving from his uncle the Ibistick and becoming Ibis the Invincible. In rebellion against the tyrannical Mesu (now known as the Black Pharoah), Taia is struck by an arrow. Ibis places her and himself into suspended animation. A generation later, an evil magician named Serpenotep conquers the Land of the Nile by imprisoning the benevolent wizard that had protected the people. Serpenotep rules tyrannically until the original Isis, posing as a servant, sneaks past the guards and into the wizard's prison. The wizard explains that she would be unable to free him until Serpenotep was defeated, but that he is able to transfer some of his power into those who are worthy. Using his magic, he causes an amulet necklace to appear around her neck, and an amulet tiara on her head. He tells her that she now possesses the powers of the pyramid -- she can soar as the falcon soars, run with the speed of gazelles, and command the elements of earth and sky. The new heroine then confronts the wicked tyrant. Serpenotep commands his snakes to entwine the young goddess, but she recites an incantation which frees both her and the old wizard. Isis and the wizard combine their power and encase Serpenotep in stone. For years afterwards, Isis guards those in need, until the day finally came that she passes on. She predicts that she would come again, in another form, to battle evil. [Isis #7] c. 16th Century BC =================== The aged wizard Shazam aligns himself with the Pharaohs of Egypt (or returns to align himself, if the wizard who granted powers to Isis is in fact Shazam). c. 15th Century BC =================== Queen Hapshuset (Hatshepsut) rules as Egypt's first and only female pharaoh. Thanks to his powerful magic, the old wizard still lives, and serves as her royal sorcerer. Sensing greatness in her, the wizard presents the Queen with the mystical amulet. He tells Hapshuset that she and her descendants would be endowed by the goddess Isis with great powers. Upon donning the amulet and invoking the name of the goddess, Hapshuset is transformed into an avatar of Isis. After her death, the wizard takes the amulet and hides it, along with a scroll which explains the secrets of Isis. He casts a spell, designed to lure one of the Queen's worthy descendants to the site, so that the power of Isis could be rediscovered in some future era. [Isis #7] 1290 BC =================== Rameses II assumes the throne of Egypt. Shazam, attempted to find a deputy to take his place, chooses Teth-Adam whom he grants the powers of six Egyptian gods, turning him into Mighty Adam. He gifts him with the stamina of Shu, the strength of Hershef (or Harsaphes), the power of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti (or Thoth), the speed of Anpu (or Anubis), and the courage of Menthu (or Mont). [note: post-Crisis the arrangement is slightly different: the stamina of Shu, the swiftness of Heru, the strength of Amon, the wisdom of Zehuti, the power of Aton, and the courage of Mehen.] 1260 BC =================== Mighty Adam arranges major peace treaty with Hittites. 1225 BC =================== When Rameses II dies, Shazam leaves Egypt; Mighty Adam carries on. Teth Adam is corrupted by his power, and is renamed Black Adam by Shazam, who exiles him to the farthest reaches of the universe. The wizard resolves to do as the old gods had done, and choose a boy, not a man. Merenptah is made Pharaoh. Shazam journeys to Greece and Rome during their heroic ages, becoming friends with the gods Aurora, Mercury, Minerva, Oggar, Selena, Zephyrus (according to the Akkadian culture of Iraq, thought to be the world's first empire, the wind-gods were androgynes, bearing both male and female aspects) and Zeus; the Titan Atlas; and the heroes Achilles, Ariadne, Hercules, and Hippolyta. Another wizard by the name of Duh journeys to Greece and Rome during their heroic ages, becoming friends with the philosopher Dumbosthenes, the wannabe hero Uloussies, and the extremely lesser god Hopelesscules. [Bizarro Comics] mid 14th century BC =================== Under the reign of Amenhotep IV, the worship of the gods of Egypt wanes. This leads the gods to turn their attentions elsewhere, leaving the people to follow their own paths. It is at this time that the spacecraft of an alien named Aten is damaged and forced to land on Egypt's sands. All fear him save for the brave king. Amenhotep shows Aten his civilization and evidence of his gods. But Aten sees no sign of the gods themselves. He observes that they had been there, then left, leaving the people to dry up and die. Aten believes he was their salvation. Amenhotep changed his name to Akhenaten in the alien's honor. He and his wife, Queen Nofretete, proclaim Aten their new god -- and his fiery ship the Chariot of the Sun. The people still believe in the old gods, but Akhenaten, Nofretete, and Aten maintain the new way. The alien tecahes them much, and they teach him about the power of the ancient gods and their pyramids. Aten remains in Egypt for nearly two decades, until Akhenaten dies. The alien believes that the people will soon revolt in favor of the old gods. Aten knows it is time to leave, but before he does, he plants a signal device to warn him if the gods ever did return. He returns to his home planet, but is surprised when the High Council banishes him for interfering with the development of a primitive world. Remembering the pyramids, from which the Egyptian gods had derived their power, Aten crosses the void back to Earth to seek revenge on those in the Council. He remains in orbit around the planet, until such a time as one of the gods again accesses the power of the pyramids. [Isis #5] c. 10th Century BC =================== Shazam meets with King Solomon of Israel. He has by now taken the name Shazamo. An evil magician named Scarab terrorizes Egypt until he is captured and imprisoned in a pyramid, where it was believed he would remain forever. In October 1976 AD, archeologists move the pyramid, enabling the magician to escape. The heroine known as Isis is able to trick Scarab in becoming trapped in the pyramid once again. This time his imprisonment would be permanent. [Isis #1] 1st century BC ============================= When Achilles and Solomon are long dead, Shazamo summons their spirits to join Zeus, Mercury, Atlas, Hercules and Oggar to do good in the world. Oggar, the god of magic, rebels and turns evil. Shazamo drives all the bad gods from earth, including Oggar and Satyr. Shazamo defeats Oggar with the help of the gods, banishing him and with one blow striking the "O" from the name on his marble throne, from that moment on referring to himself again as Shazam. As Oggar melts away to nothingness, in his parting words before vanishing completely, he angrily swears that he will return one day to seek revenge against the wizard and the gods. Shazam realises that Oggar was immortal whose strength would eventually renew itself and that one day he would break out of his temporary state of nonexistence. During council with the gods, Shazam sets up an elaborate plan, under which it is decided that each of the gods and heroes would pass their individual powers into one mortal of a distant era, a champion capable of opposing the evil god of magic. [Captain Marvel Adventures #61-66] 1st century AD =================== In August 1940 Hal Carey decides to go on an extended vacation to explore the jungles of South America. This might have ended normally enough but for his being chased into a cavern by a native tribe. Trapped Dr. Carey and his guide, Nero, begin exploring for another exit, only to be catapulted many centuries backwards into the past. When they emerge into what they think is their world they head for civilization only to discover that things are not as they left them.

Nearly unconscious from pain and bloodloss, John finds refuge with the local wizard. When John recovers, he tells the old man what he overheard: his former master, the Sheriff of Nottingham, has set a death trap for King Richard, returning from the Crusades. John escaped to find Robin Hood and tell him about the trap, but due to his injury, he would never reach the outlaw in time. The wizard finds another messenger in the mists of time: Freddy Freeman. Freddy is told why he was sent for, and becomes Captain Marvel Jr. and flies John to Sherwood, where he can warn Robin about the Sheriff's plan. Robin sees no way to get to the king in time, so Junior tells him and his men to link hands. They do, and the World's Mightiest Boy grabs Robin's and takes off flying to where the king is. They find King Richard being attacked by brigands, and set about dispatching them and defeating the Sheriff.
