    Default Captain Marvel / Shazam Appreciaton

    DC Forum Appreciation Thread rules:

    1) No negative comments about the honoree of this thread. It's an appreciation thread, not a non-appreciation one.

    2) No negative discussion about any competitors of the honoree of this thread (i.e. John Stewart in the Hal Jordan thread). No ifs, ands, or buts. Find another non-appreciation thread to do that, just not here.

    3) No negative comments about other versions of the character. For example, if you like the DCU version of Cyborg, but hate the DCnU version (or visa versa), just appreciate the earlier version and keep your comments about the latter to yourself.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




    Didn't see a thread for this, so I decided to make one myself.

    One of my all favorite undervalued heroes. Sure Johns portrayal of Billy may have made him a little more bratty than he originally was, but I liked the character arc Billy went through.

    Captain Marvel (who I really don't like calling Shazam) I think has the potential to have a great movie, with or without Dwayne Johnson.

    The thing I don't like about the name change is the loss of the world "Captain," which gave a continuity between the names of various characters in the family. He should be "Captain Shazam," then with "Mary Shazam," "Shazam Jr.," "Uncle Shazam" ect.

    Anyway, whatever he's called I really like the character.

    I agree. It feels really redundant too, especially with Shazam The Wizard (now just The Wizard).

    I can understand why DC did it (copyright issues), but I still call the character Captain Marvel instead of just Shazam.

    The Power of Shazam compelled you to say it.

    Yup. The power of Solomon, Hercules, Atlas, Zeus, Achilles and Mercury combined. Quite a combination.

    It's going to take awhile for me to get used to calling Billy "Shazam" rather than "Captain Marvel".

    So call Bat-Mite "Shazam" instead. It'll be more fun, promise.

    I've really started to grow an interest in this character fairly recently. Is he appearing in any comics currently? I bought the TPB of his New 52 backstories that appeared in JLA.
