Did you read Savage Hawkman #1 ? Carter Hall did that to his Hawkman outfit.
The Nth metal in his outfit was not pleased :lol:

I think Jim Lee inadvertently inspires writers to develop their worst scripts ever when they collaborate with him.

Jim Lee didn't draw this issue, apart from the cover.

What did you have to do to catch the train?

I was in three foster homes, one was ok and the other two were overwhelming experiences, where they were going to "love me" until I was all better which involved immediate assimilation and emotional submission. After that I begged my mother to let me come back home, then as soon as I finished high school she kicked me out again, this time for good.

This is the new Shazam outfit that we've seen (so far)

I'd bet on that being Black Adam. I hope Billy doesn't wear that hood all the time either.

Aquaman, GL and Shazam all have depth and quality that JL sorely lacks. I think writers have to dumb down a script in so that Lee can handle it. His sequential storytelling skills are almost non existent, and as far as his design goes, Jim Lee is just a poor man's Arthur Adams.

I wouldn't know. I gave up after issue 4, which was a collection of glowing rainbow colors and heroic poses.

Here's my thoughts on johns. Generally, jla is selling better but gl and aquaman are better reads.
Johns is at his best reaching into the past,weaving it into the present
Look at his jsa, flash and gl runs for proof. Look how he saved hawkman
Writing from scratch... He's hit and miss.
That's why I think his captain marvel will tank. If he had built on what happened before... Rather then reinvent the wheel
We shall see I guess
