    Default MARY MARVEL appreciation thread

    I didn't see one! And to me, "Mary Shazam" is far worse than giving Billy the wizard's name.

    Anyway, Bombshells Mary Marvel appeared in my Tumblr feed:

    Miri Marvel! She has an entirely Old Testament-based pantheon in the Bombshellsverse. I love the magical girl-esque costume here, she even has a wand. Come to think of it Mary was the original magical girl...

    I did a DC Women appreciation thread and was surprised when I found out Mary didn't have her own individual thread like some of the other ladies do. Glad you started one!!
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    She'll always be Mary Marvel to me. It's a dated name in modern times but Shazam Girl or Mary Shazam are just plain ridiculous. Hope she sees a comeback soon in the DCU "proper"--preferably on her own world with Captain Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr. IMO they work best on an Earth without a Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, etc.

    Just a note to the Bombshell version... her power is really odd, because she didn't actually have any before she caught a spark of power from Raven that gave her a wish.
    I'll agree she is the 'Magic Girl' of the chapter since she just shows up and fixed both the mindcontrolled Raven (stomping around the Berlin ghetto as a 40ft demon) and the depowered Zatanna before taking everyone away to safety.

    Thought the Black Mary Marvel and that thing with Eclipso and Darkseid was ghastly to be honest... not just with the implication that she should have married Darkseid, but the whole thing about the power lost and what she would do to get it back... and that thing about Eclipso all of a sudden being a New God creation. Costume looks good though... but at the time it just seemed like a new addition to the mostly dead Black Adam family.

    FC I sort of get, terrible yes, but I wouldn't think it would happen anyway else if Desaad decided to live in them.

    I was just talking about the looks of her in Count down... The rest was bad, i agree.

    Desaad... that creepy new god... He's being in someone as innocent as Mary Marvel is really sickening and weird and kind of funny... lol

    Mary Marvel Tribute


    She is the twin sister of Earth's mightiest mortal, the heroic CAPTAIN MARVEL! By uttering the name of the wizard Shazam, she is granted the power of the greatest Olympian Gods becoming MARY MARVEL!
    Imperius Rex!

    I agree. Put the Shazam family on their own earth. Dc has established that all these earths exist. I would also like to see the original Freedom Figthers on Earth X too! (And of course the JSA & All- STar Squadron)

    Well, it's looking likely we'll be getting one for Phase 2 of Rebirth (fingers crossed) .

    Always had a thing for pre-flashpoint Mary Marvel in Shazam form. Shame on me :S
