Captain Marvel Part 3: Billy Batson, Shazam & the Marvel Family - Character Corner #72

Character Corner - A Podcast on Your favorite Comic Book Characters

Sorry for the delay folks but we're finally back to wrap up *checks notes* Captain Marvel Part 3? Or is this Shazam? Yeah we waste no time in this episode addressing the elephant in the room: What the heck do we call this character? Kriss & Dpalm have varying opinions but one thing that is agreed upon is that this is all DC's fault. They destroyed Fawcett because the "Superman Clone" was more popular than Superman, then tried to resurrect the character 20 years later after the name had already been registered by Marvel. So we're covering the ups and downs of the "Original Captain Marvel". We cover the Whiz Comics years, the DC relaunch, Roy Thomas' interesting yet unfinished attempt at the character, Jerry Ordway's Power of Shazam and the struggle of DC trying to figure out what to do with the character that once outsold SupermanAlso...one of you asked for this so Dpalm also does a quick explanation of Marvelman. Just know it involves Alan Moore, Neil Gaiman and Grant Morrison. Buckle in folks. You're in for a ride.Issues:Early Fawcett Years: Whiz Comics #2 - First appearance of Billy Batson/Captain Marvel, Shazam (the Wizard) and Dr. Sivana Captain Marvel Adventures #18 - First Appearance of Mary Bromfield/Batson Whiz Comics #25 - First Appearance of Freddy Freeman Master Comics #21 - First Appearance of Captain Nazi Captain Marvel Adventures #26 - First Appearance of Mister Mind The Marvel Family #1 - First Appearance of Black Adam Shazam!

08262016 Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam by Mike Kunkel DC

Comics Syllabus

For Family Friday, @TwoPlai goes back to 2008's 'Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam' by Mike Kunkel for DC Comics. Kunkel's charming rendition of the classic superhero gives TwoPlai reason to think about kids, superhero mythology, and the attraction of Shazam. CORRECTION: TwoPlai incorrectly stated in the recording that this title ended at issue 12. 'BB and the Magic of Shazam' continued until issue 21 in 2010. Sorry.
