Greetings and bienvenue, I am Michael Ravencroft. Writer and artist. From the obscure, to the known, from Comics, to Tokusatsu, nothing eludes my creative eyes. Hark the Raven.


"My name is Scootaloo, I'm twelve years old and...as much as I don't like to admit it...I'm an orphan.

Anyway, something happened to me, I don't know...I got sucked into some weird dimension thingy and I got turned into an alicorn! But it only happens when I say a certain word. This old pony told me that this power should only be used to protect others, and stop something bad that would come back to hurt a lot of ponies. I don't know what's coming, but I won't let it hurt my friends, or anypony, and to those who dare try, I got one word for you..."

OH MY CELESTIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! .....0_0

Is that description based on KAZAAM FROM 1996?!

I thought that it was based on that movie and I was like "nahh....." But then I was like WOW! That is so cool you managed a pony crossover. But what about the sad ending scene in the shoe factory... Curious to how that works. Very clever though, I am quite impressed.
Upon more reading I see some severe diffrences, I guess the name and the orphan thing....... Sorry for assuming. None of the less, somepony should make a crossover of that :)

5213349 Actually this is based on Captain Marvel from DC comics


I'm only linking for if you're not aware

Interesting already. So, Scootaloo is the hero? I don't see many fics like this. I will continue to read on.

I admit my knowledge of captain marvel is a tad lacking, but given a quick refresher, this should be good. Especially given how tirek sounding one of the main antagonists was for him.

You know, I can just see Scootaloo having no idea what she's getting into but accepting the job in an attempt for a Cutie Mark.

CHERILEE IS THE MOST AWESSOME TEACHER EVER!!!!!! I can totally see her adopting Scootaloo at some point if she could, she's looking out for all her students and not afraid to stand up to Filthy when he's putting pressure on her. I can just see Cherilee and Twilight working together on lesson plans or just sitting together chatting over teaching methods.

5215159 Well, he's supposed to be a corrupted ancient Egyptian version of Marvel. So, probably a Zebra.

Captain Marevel Scootaloo vs chimera...LIGHTING AND FIRE CLASH!!!!!

5215159 Obvious choice is a jealous Diamond Tiara.

My fave CMC and one of my fave superheros all in one, can't beat that. :scootangel:

Funny you should mention him...:trixieshiftright:

Not Kazaam, but I do love that movie, oh my childhood! :raritycry:

Now by "epic" do you mean make the story epically awesome? 'Cause you know me, it will be. Or do you mean to make it a long and epic story?

Well was one of his enemies.

5215322 5215371
You'll just have to wait and see. And I'm glad you like Cheerilee, believe me she has a role to play in this.

5215159 5215442 5215574
Black Adam will make an appearance, I already hinted at it.

Also, if you hadn't noticed my little reference, Quicksilver is the 51st champion, which makes Scootaloo the New 52! :derpytongue2:

5215798 Given the scope of some of what you've done, the view overall is pretty good in this. So I hope it goes well in muse and writing.

Hmm, there are some things that even the Princesses don't know about. This is going to be an interesting tale. Please do keep up the good work.

So. We have our indications is Black Adam. Now I feel as though I should go read up on all of the old comics.

Nice start for the newly magic heroine. I cannot wait to see whether Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr. enters the story.

Please do keep up the good work upon such a great tale as I cannot wait to see what twist you'll bring into this story next.

Cherilee and Twilight make a good couple so far. I can totally see Scootaloo cuddling between them. Now will she approach Twilight for help with her new powers as Shazam or Scootaloo????

So, do you have a voice actress in mind for Shazam!Scootaloo? Because until told otherwise, I'm going to read her lines with Jennifer Hale's voice in my head.

“…………………Twilight, may I please request the Angry Dome spell please?”

:rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh: Nice use of a Get Smart reference.

I'm honestly wondering just how long the secret will hold out in Ponyville. I doubt for long, at some point Scootaloo will be forced to transform in public to save the town. But I'm glad she wants Twilight to train her in controlling her magic, smart girl. I love the Angry Dome Spell, plus Twilight's defenses of her books.

Does 15 million volts beat 1.21 gigawatts???

The world just ground to a halt at the moment, Scootaloo looked up at Twilight in disbelief, a nervous smile forming on her lips.
“You’re kidding, right?” asked Scootaloo in a worried tone.
“I honestly had no idea until you just said all that.”
“…………………Twilight, may I please request the Angry Dome spell please?”


Since she turns into an Alicorn, could she theoretically 'turn back' into an earth pony or unicorn?

So, Shazam > Twilight "OP" Sparkle when she was fighting Tirek? That is some serious superhero mojo Scootaloo has, now. At least Twilight should be a great teacher for helping her get control, even if Scootaloo now outclasses her in power. Heh, kind of like Wildcat teaching other DC heroes with powers his fighting techniques.

Was the golden helmet a reference to Doctor Fate??

This is great, a few grammatical errors here and there but im really enjoying this.

Nice update and yet interesting meta-reference in this chapter, given who the voice of Twilight Sparkle on the show is. Please do keep up the good work.

5225348 there's no way to know that without knowing the amps first

Yes! You earn a thunderbolt!

I have one, but I find it better that everyone imagines their own voice, that way everybody's happy. :pinkiehappy:

5225309 5225365
My other two references have been found! :yay:

Remember she said "normal" lightning, but we all know that the Living Lightning that empowers Shazam is anything but normal, so it could exceed 1.21 gigawatts. :pinkiegasp:

There will be no Superman, or pony version thereof, in this story. Sorry, but it's Shazam's time to shine.

5228433 LOL, thanks! So normal lighting will power the DeLorean, but Shazam will overcharge it??? Kind of like the scene below???

5228522 Me too. In fact, isn't "SHAZAM" the name of the WIZARD who gives Billy Batson his powers?

5240399 And yet, DC thought that they needed to change Cap's name to "Shazam".

I'm going to go out on a limb and say Sombra.

I forgot that I'm not following you (I must fix that soon) so I missed when you started this up. Great beginning so far. My favorite crusader with probably my third favorite DC hero (Wally West the Flash and Kyle Rayner Green Lantern are the top two) is a great combination. At least your Wizard gets to die peacefully instead of being crushed to death by a giant stone block when he gives up the power of SHAZAM.

Hmmm...Cheerilee and Twilight. I can honestly say that's a ship I haven't seen before. Normally if Cheerilee is paired with anypony it's with Big Mac. CheeriTwi is kind of a cute ship.

Does this story takes place before MLP Next Generation: Know Fear!?

5265194 This is in its own little DC crossover universe. Kind of like how there are multiple worlds with varying forms of the DC heroes.

As soon as I saw this I laughed, mainly because the concept was so obvious and so true in a MLP/DC crossover!

Twilight gets a special teleport to a world sized library holding nigh unlimited knowledge?

Well, I suppose thats one way of getting a Princess out of the way forever.

So, how long will it take Twilight to exceed her check out limit at THE LIBRARY OF ETERNITY???? I can totally see an epic book fort being built there and Twilight acting like a filly as she reads books she never even knew existed. I can't wait to see Scootaloo get more control over her abilities.

The Cherilee scenes were great, good character development. I also loved Berry coming to talk some sense into her sister, I'm sure she'll be a great aunt to Scootaloo. But Scootaloo is going to go from no family to so much family, there's Cherilee's family, Twilight's family plus Celestia and Luna, and then the fact the Mane 6 are practically sisters and the Crusaders seem the same way.

I love how your post and your avatar match up so well.

Loving this story. You seem to have a few issues with comma splices and run-on sentences, so you might want to keep an eye out for them in the future. Otherwise, please continue!

:fluttershysad: This is way more emotional than I expected!

:twilightsmile: Great job so far, I'm loving it!

Loving your stories thanks for sharing

I got to say, this is an good story. I don't know much about Shazam, but this story earn a fave and follower! ME!:pinkiehappy:

Can't resist the Bon Jovi reference:
