Have any other DC fans here read this? I thought it was a darn good read and a great Post-Crisis beginning for Captain Marvel. They really tried to make the old goofy origin and characters fit into the Post-Crisis universe (I personally thought they did a darn good job at it). And it had some great battle scenes between Black Adam and Captain Marvel (Black Adam never looked so evil!) I SO
wish this would have been followed up on with an ongoing series.
Why do you think DC threw this origin out the window and tried to bury it? I saw nothing wrong with it. Sure, Jerry Ordway's Power of Shazam! series was great! But they could have still had Power of Shazam! with the New Beginning origin.
