...but yeah, I have read Justice League #7, the first issue with the Curse of Shazam! backup,
I've tried so hard not to be negative. We're now seven months into the New 52, and I'm not dense. I realize these are different interpretations, different concepts. I get it.
I've tried really hard not to knee-jerk, not to be a roadblock or hater. I've waited for the story, and I realize it's just the first part. Again, I get it: Reset universe. New concepts and interpretations.
But...wow. I'm just...wow.
I posted spoilers in the thread title, but in my posts about books I read on the day of, I tend not to go too deep into the books so people can at least get a quick read of it before they start to comment.
But this one...I don't even know what to say. Somehow, in the months since it was announced that Captain Marvel was going to appear in Justice League, DC has managed to take everything I liked about Billy Batson and Captain Marvel and just make it seem...pointless. Stupid. Childish.
It's like they honestly have looked at the character and said, "Only an imbecile could like this character based on the initial premise."
I guess I'm an imbecile, then. Because I'm disappointed in what I read today. Bitterly disappointed.
*Sniff, sniff* "Damn it, Diana...If I'd known they would trade us in for a JT Krul-written Captain Atom and "The Savage Hawkman," I'd have let Superboy-Prime destroy all reality.""Superman flies and is really strong...what the fuck else do you need to know?!"
