The (bad) TV series Shazam!, based on the DC Comics property of the same name, ran from 1974-1977. A few aspects of the series contain totally original material, from young Billy Batson having a mentor named, get this, Mentor, who drives him around in a caravan with the Shazam logo on the front of it. In the show, Billy frequently consults a glowing ball that gives him access to the gods and king that give his powers derive from. Were any of these elements later adapted for the comics? Did he ever gain an elderly sidekick named Mentor whose relationship to him is hopefully explained? Does he ever get a "Sha-van?"
