―Darla Dudley and Eugene Choi[src]

―Darla Dudley and Freddy Freeman[src]

Divine Empowerment: After shouting Shazam!, while holding the Magician's staff, Darla was given the ability to transform. When transformed, Darla has many powers and abilities, which exceed the capabilities of human beings.

  • Superhuman Strength: Darla is superhumanly strong, as she was able to lift two civilians with one hand while saving them from the Ferris wheel.
  • Superhuman Speed: Darla's main power is immense superhuman speed, as she is faster than even the other Shazam Family members, possibly even on par with Superman and the Flash in speed, because Darla is seen as a blurred figure while running, with others seeming almost frozen in space from her perspective. With this power, Darla was able to save several civilians, and outpace most of the Seven Sins.
  • Flight: Darla is able to fly.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: Darla's reflexes are enhanced to the point that she can easily dodge a lightning bolt thrown at her by Sivana.


  • Darla's suit: When empowered as her Super Hero, Darla wears a sleeveless costume that is colored in purple, with a lightning bolt symbol on her chest. It also has a white cape with a hood and gold trim.
