Again I ask: Wait...what? Why would the power of Shazam give the person wielding it the ability to talk to machines?!

Uhhh, Mary and Freddy had them all. They could all fly too. Pedro had strength and Dara had speed, but really, I don't think they did that. If so, that was really dumb not to mention, why did the whites get the full set and the rest did not? I think they had them all, but focused on instinct. That and like in Power of Shazam, the power is limited and shared. With Black Adam gone, the power is increased to them all.

Eugene made the comment that all his digital devices that were on him prior to the transformation were gone afterwards. Maybe they merged into him ?

Wonder what would happen if Mary had a vibrator on her prior to changing :twisted:

After that post, I won't feel so bad for pointing out how pocky Mary in that panel.

Plus, note the different patterns on each behind the lightning bolts. Interesting.

Remember how great Captain Marvel was to read in JSA? Then they made him the crappy Wizard? Now this? Why?

After seeing a similar concept in Flashpoint, I figured we'd see it in the NuDCU at some point.

I want to give it a chance before ripping into it.

It's honestly not a bad issue, although I feel it'll lose its luster pretty quickly.


I have no words.

No, I have a few: that looks like crap. The facial expressions are just awful. Miss Thang's pose and finger wag don't match her dialogue at all, and blondie's face is simply laughable. The guy in green is the only one with an attempt at a reaction. I usually like Frank's art, but this is a laughable Burger King gang pose.

As to the concept... there I truly have nothing to say except I don't care anymore.

The erratic power-sets could also be the result of Billy not understanding his powers yet. Just like what happened after he transformed Tawny.

Would be cool if Mary and Freddy are used as the priority Shazam family and Billy just uses the other kids as a reserve option for emergencies.
