I'm presuming he's still weak to magic.  The bigger question is who is smarter?  Shazam supposedly has the wisdom of Solomon, but I've never seen him use it.  Superman outwits stronger opponents when he encounters them.

Superman all day. Intelligence and Experience.

I got to go with Shazam due to the magic. Superman is a smarter, more experienced (IMO) fighter and I would think he has fought a gamut of super powerful enemies.

Nice to see some much younger people have awareness of Capt. Marvel/Shazam.  Like a lot of Gen X folks, my first exposure was not the comics but the 70s CBS TV show.

I'm not sure how this would go.  I can't help but to think about the eras that these characters have inhabited.
The Jerry Ordway-written Shazam! revival of the 90s was underrated.

For a straight brawl, I'd have to grudgingly give it to Superman, if the implication is that Billy, for all his power, is still a younger teen, and not as adept with his full range of abilities.

Gotta go with Superman. Especially after reviewing JLU and Man of Steel Superman full potential appears to be unlimited.

I was thinking the JLU story myself.  Though, CM/S has gained lightning throwing powers since then.  Still give Supes the edge.
