Captain Marvel should automatically be good at everything. A physical and mental marvel. A whiz. Instantly impressive, with the qualities of Solomon's wisdom and Achilles' courage radiating off him, in every word and deed.
Who the hell is this new Shazam? Who would want to be him?
There should be none of this "growing into the role", or "learning to hear the wisdom", or willing the power from within yourself. As soon as you say the word, Shazam. BOOM! Magic lightning comes and brings a 100% ready-made hero, charging into action and solving things. Then when the day is saved, flash, he's gone again and where'd he go?
Thanks, Wisdom, for taking the hit by reading this for everyone. I hope a better Cap comes back to DC in my lifetime. The real one lives on in reprints and our imaginations.

: Shame on you, Geoff.
: One other noteworth thing: Cap and Billy now
: share the same cuts and injuries.
