You obviously totally missed the point in Kingdom Come, Marvel was throwing everything he had at Supes and Supes bled a little, when he got tired of it and heard the planes with the nukes coming he moved so fast and stopped Marvel from saying Shazam again, he gavre Marvel the choice to be a hero again, and lets not forget Marvel was destroyed by the blast along with a huge amount of the other heroes and villans while Superman was not harmed at all.
