I don't know why Shazam has more votes. Superman has won most of the battles against Shazam. Most of the DC gods are weak. Superman is stronger, faster, smarter, and has much better feats.
Voted: Shazam

The answer is Shazam, aka Captain Marvel. The reason why Captain Marvel is more powerful than Superman because there's different between a god and an Alien. Superman is an Alien from a destroyed planet, while Shazam is a god hybrid. A god is a divine omnipotent being and an Alien is an extraterrestrial creature. Shazam powers are the powers of six gods: strength of Hercules, power of Zeus, wisdom of Solomon, speed of Hermes/Mercury, courage of Achilles and stamina of Atlas. Superman gets power by absorbing the sun's radiation. D.C. comics just buff Superman to make him stronger than all the dc characters. So the real deal and the big picture is that shazam is stronger than the other heros. He's faster than the flash by the speed of Mercury, can overpowered superman by the strength of Hercules and smarter as the Batman with wisdom of Solomon in injustice 1 gods among us. So the answer is who is more powerful between Shazam and Superman is Shazam. Magic and Brute strength is a weakness to Superman as well.

Superman is weak magic, but he can fight someone who is powered by magic (like juggernaut or Shazam just not someone like dr Strange or Wanda Maximoff). Btw that rant about Shazam being powered by gods was the most annoying and unnecessary thing ever.

Superman has beaten Shazam more times.
Voted: Shazam

Now I know Wonder woman isn't as strong as Superman but that's because she is a demigod and she isn't that weak but at the same time Shazam has the power of 6 gods and 6 is far greater than being half a god
Adding magic element to that which is actually Superman's weakness.
So yes Shazam wins untill and unless Superman took him by surprise

Superman is not specifically weak to magic. He is just as weak to it as a normal person would be.

IK he's not specifically weak to magic. and I like Superman as a hero way more than Shazam, but Shazam by implication should win

Superman's greater durability and experience gives him the victory. Though Shazam does have magic that can harm Superman, it's not on the level of the likes of Thor or anyone else. Superman 6/10 times.

Voted: Shazam

Actually Shazam is faster, his speed rivals The Flash...and Superman MIGHT only be slightly stronger (due to popularity), but Shazam is also able to move things on a planetary scale just like Supes and stalemated Superman in arm wresting. For all intents and purposes they are equals (but Shazam has no physical weaknesses)

Voted: Shazam

Ok so superman isn't weak to magic per-say but he has no special resistance to it. So if Billy hit him (which he definitely has the speed to do) then it would be just like a regular human getting hit with a magic bolt of lightning so the win goes to Shazam

You just explained why shazam would defeat superman. And your acting like a human could take a bolt of lightning from shazam lmfao

Magic doesn't necessarily have the same effect on Superman as it would an any normal human. His durability doesn't resist magic as well as it would other objects, meaning that magic has more of an effect on him, not necessarily that his durability completely disappears. If that were the case, Superman would be one of the most underpowered characters in all of comics, which cannot be further than the truth.

A normal human hit by Shazam would be dead.. Superman has been hit by him and didnt die from it. Btw the DC Universe is designed for Superman beeing the strongest Superhero, so this discussion is already questionable. He was dragging a solar system once..

Superman may have more durability due to his kryptonian physiology.

ok this is how it goes
shazam cant transform for some reason, superman says "ha, die shazam"
but then thinks why are we fighting
shazam says "don't know I could really go for some pizza"
"yeah" superman says
shazam got superman drunk and stabbed him with a kryptonite dagger

Not sure if this point is Valid , but going to share my opinion.
Superman & Batman have always been the bread winners for the DCU & back in the day the Shazam's comics use to do considerably well. Some say that it actually out sold Superman comics in some ways.
DC obviously bought them and during the phase of ownership, I personally feel down graded the guy. Obviously DC can only have one flag ship. Don't get me wrong Superman is Ultra Badass, but I just believe that Shazam needs his fair amount of light. The guy is widely underrated and has a arsenal of fire power in his pocket. If you take his Arch Enemy Black Adam. That guy could take on the Entire justice league. Expect in Injustice when Superman is all Cray Cray and him & Wonderwoman team up on the poor bloak.
The point I'm trying to get it, is that Wizard really layered Billy & Adam with some magical powers from Demi God's / gods , obviously allowing them to obtain the best quality's of those entity's.
In a match up, I believe that Shazam stands a great chance of winning constantly to Superman and in the Same breath will loose consistantly to Superman.
But Shazam can beat the likes of MM / Sentry ECT. Again this is just an opinion and obviously everything changes in the New52. So we might just agree to disagree.

Um, these power grids are ridiculous. Neither of these guys have intelligence anywhere near 80 or 90, nor do they have combat levels anywhere near where they're listed. For some reason Captain Marvel is listed as lower speed and durability than Superman? If anything, Cap's would be higher in those two, while the place where Superman would definitely have a higher power level than Marvel (due to his energy powers like heat vision and cold breath) is where they're given an even score.

@wolfdragon123: Not everyone is weak against magic. Some characters are immune to magic based attacks. And since Superman is prone to magic, it is very likely that someone could beat him using magic. Im not saying that Captain Marvel would win but he would sure put up a good fight. His durability is too low for him to take attacks from Superman

This is very true wolfdragon and well explained 👍
In my mind its of course a thought behind this and explains why Gods of myths are of magical nature as well as Demon lords.
The very dimension they come from are magical and devine in nature.
Also explains the imortality and vast age of this characters. Just think about what an incredible advantage this is, beeing several thousend years of age !

One of the things I hate most about debates like this and the Thor vs Superman debate is that people say that Superman will loose because of his "weakness" to magic. Saying that a character is weak to magic is like saying that a human being is weak against getting shot in the head. EVERYONE is weak again magic and EVERY HUMAN is weak against getting shot in the head. Even characters like Doctor Fate and Doctor Strange are weak against magic. Magic is the ultimate trump card when it comes to comics because its capabilities are limitless and can be as powerful or as weak as the situation asks for.

I'm gonna go against the grain here and vote for Captain Marvel. He doesn't have the weakness to magic that superman has, and Captain Marvel, if I remember correctly, is like all magic.

You have some reading to do Remy about other characters i promise at least the conversation would be a little diffrent.
Yes i agree Dc as well as Marvel universe have redicules over powered some of their superheroes. Some of them as the Sentry is not just overpowered he also is a boring copy of youre favorit Dc hero.
At the end the most important is that fans of comic book heroes may have some fun and if they choose also can get some new info.

I tried to take these two characters at there average and unfortunately the facts state that Captain Marvel would lose verses the average Superman, and I've also stated in the past that a wizard as powerful as doctor strange could easily defeat Superman, but Captain Marvel is nowhere near Doctor Strange's level of magic power. And also, even Superman fans are unaware that his maximum potential is limitless, think about it have you ever seen him use his true power, this is the reason why some fans like him and others don't because he is to overpowered, this is why fans always try to compare there favorite superhero to the Man of Steel, but at the end of the day Superman is still the most powerful superhero. And if it is a problem of magic, Superman can easily fly into the sun and become immune to it.

I do not want to be rude but your logic in your comment is wrong even though it is rite, yes a character with weakness to magic would lose verses a magic user with equal power, but Captain Marvel is not on the same level as the Man of Steel, Superman has proven over the years to be more powerful then the Captain, and still remains to be. And also you said that because Superman has these weaknesses it makes him less powerful then other characters, well no because he can still lift more then all of those other characters you said, he can still move faster and fly faster even. So a character with less power and one advantage verses a character with greater power and many advantages, witch one would win. And like I said before this is hard for me to choose a winner because i'am a vary big fan of both.

A Metahuman at about the same power level that may exploit any of Supermans weakness will defeat him.
The problem is not that weakness have been the only thing its the opposite something fans dont consider because of the characters popularity.
There are a lot to consider when two metahumans will fight thats true ! Superman is a very powerful Alien one of the most powerful metahumans in comics There are how ever a few who will put him down as Mighty Thor,Silver Surfer, Dr Strange, Dr Fate, Shazam, Silver surfer and perhaps also Dr Manhattan. Lets face it, how could a character with this limitations be the most powerful and beat gods of the myths or sorcerers of incredible power ? There are of course some other kind of characters that will also defeat him like Galactus.

When you have a match up like this one you got to consider more aspects then just someone's weaknesses, if you say that Superman can be defeat by anyone using magic then he should have been defeated along time ago. Captain Marvel will always have the limits of the Greek gods, and Superman has yet to reach his full power, so in fact CM's only advantage would be his magical abilities. Would the world's mightiest mortal be able to overpower the Man of Steel, the answer is no.

This is a a hard choose for me because i'am a big fan of both of these characters, and after much research I found my winner. They say that CM is on par with Superman, I don't believe this is true, Superman is extremely more powerful and more durable, This is why Superman wins this match up, even though he is weak to magic it dose not take away his powers, and the Man of Steel has taken a bolt of lighting from the wizard Shazam and survived with miner injures and was still able to defeat CM.

In All-star Superman, Supes fought with Hercules and beat him easily, and Captain Marvel is said to have the strength of Hercules. Sure Superman is weak to magic but it does not weaken him as much as say that green rock we all know.

DC won't let Captain Marvel beat Superman too many times. He has beat Superman before and who says Captain Marvel wasn't holding back? Fawcett comics never had great writing so like Batman says in JLA #1, Cap hasn't reached his max potential like in Kingdom Come. And just so you know, Dc won't let Captain Marvel OR Black Adam get their hands on red/gold/green kryptonite or else they would kill Superman. But to settle the score, Billy hasn't reached adulthood yet so maybe he will max out like in Kingdom Come

Shazam will win is he use the wisdom of Solomon, and shots lighting bolts shot from his hand. Superman will win if Shazam fight with strength and not wisdom or if he makes the same mistake he made in JL when Lex was opening his power plant project. Again supes has won shazam more times shazam has won supes but personally i think it was because dc didn't want anyone beating there most powerful superhero regularly unless he won't be so powerful.

Superman will loose this battle because of his limitations as character. He still do not have any protection versus magical attacks.
There are a lot of fans to the hero who refuses to admit this fact and still proclaims the Kryptonians victory versus characters he obviosly will be loosing. The Mighty Thor will erase his existence, a magical warrior god.
Dr Strange the Sorcerer Supreme.
Silver surfer will also defeat the man of steel.
Shazam is Dcs magical superhero who may blast magical lightning bolts. How many blasts is needed against someone who got no defence for it ?
