This is what people want?
Captain Marvel Shazam tricking the bad guy into dying?
His optimally diverse family all turning into Shazams? Each with their own special trick. The black girl can run fast, the Asian guy is good with electronics, The mexican is strong and good at labor, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Jewish one is great with money.
But yeah, just for the shit cherry on top, kid hero tricks bad guy into dying.
This is your DC comics now, where even the Big Red Cheese murders. Oh they say it isn’t.. but what else do you call it? Aside from bad writing, but Gary Frank draws the hell out of those terrible new costumes.
Seriously, why the fuck is there a mandate to make Captain Marvel TOTALLY BADASS AND COOL MAGIC DUDER.
Because the costume is terrible, and the backup feature is just boring and mean.
I really like Captain Marvel as a fun character for kids to enjoy. He is a boy who can magically turn into a grown up and has a fun time being a hero. He doesn’t need anyone to make him edgy or try and deconstruct him.
That was already done in the 1980s, by Alan Moore.
So bring back fun Captain Marvel.
No, DC, I will not call Captain Marvel SHAZAM! that is silly. Also stupid. Also that whole backup feature is terrible.
He is Captain Marvel.
Carol Danvers is also Captain Marvel.
They can both be Captain Marvel.
Yep, Orbital Fastball Special.

The comic was eye-rollingly bad, but Gary Frank gave us a few great panels of kids being kids, even if one of the kids is a grown man with a weird ass costume on. Like, he motions like a kid, not a grown up.
I think the whole “new, exciting direction” for
Captain Marvel Shazam is pretty terrible. The whole part where he is generally a total asshole to everyone until they prove themselves worth caring about, the whole MAGIC! nonsense and the scene where an ancient wizard learns a life lesson that “nobody is perfect” from a brat in under a page.. pretty shitty.
Now if only people would quit buying the book and Geoff would get back to writing good stuff again.
Trollin while being tackled at high speeds through a building, and you guys thought when ppl made new accounts on youtube to hate twice as much THEY where going hard.
