They have been shown in stories here to be more than a little jealous of Cool Marvel, who can transform any time he wants, especially since he has only had his powers for a short time, while they have had their powers for many years. They have always been shown to be equally as powerful as the regular Marvels.
In the story 'Forever a Marvel' originally Willie B. had to say Shaz...the magic word at the same time Billy Batson did. At the conclusion of the story when Caitlin O'Malley renounced her powers, she suggested to the Wizard to give Willie the ability to transform by himself.
Now...people have been wondering what would happen if Cait said 'Shazam?' Would she change back? Would nothing happen? Stay tuned for that <insert Sivana's evil 'Heh! Heh! Heh!!!' laugh...>

Although she is now hanging out at Grimoire Academy, and Blaze and
Satanus invaded Grimoire Academy not too long after she reached the
Academy. Maybe they were after more than just rescuing the Space
Maybe. Wouldn't be that hard to start adding up those mosters of Society.
