Long ago, the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man roamed throughout the world, sowing their negative vices upon humanity. Their reign of evil ended, though, when a wizard by the name of Mamaragan apprehended the demons and encased them in seven colored statues. Despite being trapped, the spirits still presented a threat, and so the Wizard took them to the Rock of Eternity for safekeeping.
However, the Seven Deadly Enemies were certainly not kept safe there... they've escaped several times, including in the episode "Little Elvis." A wicked worm named Mr. Mind freed the spirits from there stony prisons and released them upon Jump City. The Teen Titans proved useless in stopping them, having been immediately possessed by the demons. Thankfully, a mighty hero named Shazam was there to take on and then defeat the Seven Deadly Enemies.
Physical AppearanceTo keep it nice and simple, the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man have been color-coded: Pride is orange, Envy is green, Greed is yellow, Hatred is red, Selfishness is blue, Laziness is pink, and Injustice is purple. All of the spirits have an expression on their face that represents what they're all about, and they don't deviate too much from it at all. The demons can be in three forms: statue, fiery spirit, or massive death robot. The last form is purple, gray, and black, bristling with spikes, and adorned with a "7" symbol belt. Idols of sins are centered in the giant monster's chest.
Powers and Abilities

Weapons and Equipment
- Giant Robot: When all seven spirits combine to from a heptagram, a giant robot is summoned. In this state, they have exceptional strength and destructive capabilities.
- The Seven Deadly Enemies of Man are loosely based off the Christian teaching of the Seven Deadly Sins, a group of vices which include Pride, Greed, Lust, Envy, Gluttony/Selfishness, Wrath and Sloth. The Teen Titans Go! version (and some versions of Shazam) have substituted Injustice in place of Lust, since the sin of sexual appetite might be considered inappropriate for some kids.
- The design of the sins was based off how the originally appeared in Shazam comics, but there's a few differences: originally, Pride was blue, Greed was pink, Selfishness was orange, Laziness was yellow, and Injustice was purple.
- Pride is the strongest and most powerful out of all the Deadly Enemies of Man.
- It's not clear what happens to the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man at the end of the episode. After their robot is destroyed, they are seen falling on the ground as idols, and Hatred fizzles out in some electricity. Perhaps they were destroyed, or maybe they were warped back to captivity.
