    Default Captain Marvel / Shazam Appreciation 2019

    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
    Here is the place to celebrate all Captain Marvel / SHAZAM!;

    From the classic...


    to the New...

    You know what an Appreciation thread needs? ART!

    Here's Bob Oksner's Captain Marvel centerfold pinup from Limited Collectors' Edition C-21 (I think) followed by the cover of Captain Marvel Adventures 6 that it was inspired from. If Atlas shrugs, he's gonna be x-rated!

    Neal Adams didn't draw a ton of Captain Marvel, but here's his pic from the 1976 DC Calendar (month of August).

    Now, here's Bob Oksner's Marvel Family pinup from Limited Collectors' Edition C-35. Notice how he draws each character in a different sytle. Mary is his style, Cap is CC Beck, and Jr. could be Mac Raboy.

    I first found out about him in Superbat Vol. 1 Public Enemies where he and Hawkman hunted down Superbat.

    I... wasn't clear on how he was defeated. They kinda just skip over from the cliffhanger after he SHAZAM!-ed Batman.

    Billy also looks like 40 year old priest pretending to be a kid. That collar makes him look off to me.

    My head-canon is that it was all a show.

    Here's a nice rare poster of Captain Marvel from 1977.

    I've seen a few random panels of the character but the next one I pay attention was the New 52

    As I'm not a fan... yet... I didn't mind the change, but I wish Gary Frank didn't use so many douchey/annoying expressions for him that made him look too much like a brat
