Also, I think Billy should grow up. That is the one thing about C.M. that I didn't care for. Early to mid 20's would in my opinion be a deeper character. Also, what has C.M. appeared in recently? I don't keep up with comics like I used to.
: we've seen him use it as a weapon by moving

: That's one aspect of his power I would love

: As seen in Kingdome Come, Captain Marvel

: However, I have always wondered why C.M.
: cannot control the lightning. He has the
: power of Zeus, yet he can't wield it. I
: think it would be interesting if he could
: control it the same as Superman's heat
: vision. Not only to transform him, but to
: use as a weapon.
