: Yes, DC can be and has been that
: The fact that Grant Morrison is writing this
: fills me with dread.
Morrison can create magic when he writes but he can also write some stinkers.I think he could be perfect for Captain Marvel and company-especially in a Earth-S setting.Morrison is at his best when he tells stories that arent just standard superhero fare.Shazam world needs to be different than Earth-1 with a look and feel all its own.The artists are going to be very important for this to come across as well.I still think if D.C. allows them freedom to capture the old Shazam magic and do so in a modern setting Morrison can pull it off.We wownt know for sure until we see the finished series but I do have high hopes.By the way-on the problem you talked about below-there will always be someone willing to tear others efforts down and be-little your efforts.Never let that stop you from doing what you enjoy.I have read your threads and they are well thought out and use the Shazam background to show why you think each subject is relevant to your interpretation.That is giving a critical review-not plagarism-so keep on and dont worry about a nay-sayer.
