I absolutely love this piece! Tapping into the idea that even though Captain Marvel (Shazam) is a hero he is still a teenage kid at heart. So what better thing for him to be doing during his spare time then playing something like Pokémon, Mario, or Legend of Zelda? xD
Agreed, and I quite like the "Young Justice" vibe it has, though I must say I quite despise the "New 52" version of him, his hideous attitude getting him powers from a wizard trying to look for someone pure of heart aside, nothing he has done every time he has transformed shows the wisdom of Solomon, which was one of the defining characteristics of the original comics so that he could look like an adult and pass himself off as one even though he only had the knowledge of a child. (sorry to rant, and again I really do quite like this picture)
Wow, this is amazing he was pretty cool in justice league unlimited, and brilliant in young justice and the superman/shazam: return of black adam short was really awesome the only comics i've read of him are in the new 52, and i've got to see, he's not as good as in the tv shows. is it just because of the reboot, or was he always kinda a douche in the comics?
Actually, in most of his representation, he was depicted as an even bigger boy-scout than Superman(sometime called the the blue boy-scout). He really try to be an image of the perfect hero(like what he think is superman). Shazam(captain marvel) has a more naive image of what it is to be a hero(probably due to the fact that he is still a kid).
I would like to read that version of him. might go back to some older comics, i'm not a fan of his new 52 counterpart. in fact, most of the new 52 just seems to be "lets make this beloved character darker! it worked for batman in the nolan movies!" :/
usually to target a new audience :/ i guess the fact that he isn't a dark antihero and doesn't have the typical tragic backstory, DC thought he wouldn't appeal to teens nowadays. because, all teenagers think exactly the same, and want every superhero to be batman. O.o
exactly, his characterization in justice league unlimited and young justice were great! but his new comic depiction is just typical troubled teen. and i remember being a troubled teen. it wasn't fun. why i would i route for myself at my douchiest? >.<
