On December 14, 1972, DC published SHAZAM 1, February 1973, their first comic book featuring the old Fawcett Comics character Captain Marvel. While Superman and Captain Marvel never fought in a cross-over story, their two publishers did battle each other in court.

Superman and Captain Marvel first met in a comic book story titled SUPERDUPERMAN! in MAD #4, April/May 1953. To read this story online go to: http://kitscomics.com/captain/34.htm . DC, which now owns MAD MAGAZINE, has reprinted the story in MAD ARCHIVE vol. 1, which collected issues 1 – 6.

DC has also reprinted the early issues of SHAZAM, which ended with issue 35 in 1978, in SHAZAM: THE GREATEST STORIES EVER TOLD, and SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SHAZAM! vol. 1.
