The Wise King 'Solomon' was born in Jerusalem and was the king of Israel about 1000 years before our common era. Solomon was known for his great wisdom that was given to him as a gift from YHWH.
Continuity from Shazam!
During his lifetime, the wizard Shazam comes in contact with Solomon, and he uses Solomon's wisdom as part of The Power of Shazam. Solomon now exists as an Immortal Elder that exists in some other realm and communicates with Billy Batson when needed.
Solomon, son of David was the Hebrew king whose life was recorded in the Bible. Solomon had many siblings including Amnon, who was killed on the order of their half-brother, Absalom, for raping Absalom's sister, Tamar. Absalom was killed in the Battle of Ephraim Wood, and Adonijah, who had tried to usurp the throne, was put to death. Solomon had seven hundred wives and three hundred concubines. One wife was the daughter of an Egyptian pharaoh. One day, Solomon, through prayer, asked the Israelite God YHWH to grant him wisdom. And it was so done. Over time, Solomon started to serve other gods along with his wives. This caused God to be displeased with him. And after his death, his son Rehaboam succeeded the throne.
Power Distribution: Solomon imparts the gift of wisdom to the various members of the Marvel Family. The wisdom of Solomon also gives heroes such as Captain Marvel clairvoyance and provides him with counsel and advice in times of need. He grants Marvel knowledge of all languages, ancient and modern, and the ability to hypnotize others. Logically, Solomon possesses all of the same abilities that he can bestow upon others.
