SHAZAM! The Captain Marvel Fan Thread
01/29/2013 08:47 PM EST
It seems to me that there are very few of us rooting for Captain Marvel (renamed Shazam in the New 52, but I refuse to call him that) despite the likelihood (Boon being a fan) of his inclusion.

So, I'm looking for other Captain Marvel fans- who else loves the big guy in red and gold?

I've always loved Captain Marvel; he was really the first superhero I took too. I always though he was more 3 dimensional than Superman, he had a better explanation of his powers, a better back story, a FAR better secret identity, and was just a far more likable character in general. So, I've always felt shortchanged with a good number of people allowing Superman to always be the center attention while passing off Captain Marvel as a relic or a Superman knockoff.

So, who else out there is counting the hours until a Captain Marvel reveal; just hoping that Ed Boon remains true to his fandom.

I have nothing against THE BIG RED CHEESE. I appreciate the character and think Billy is a great superhero. I think more or less the hype isn't as big for him this game (on this site anyway) is highly due to him appearing in MKvsDCU and giving those not as educated on the character a clear understanding of him. Granted the "RAGE" thing probably gave off some weird Aura to those not familiar. They at least got a clear vision of the character and how he's portrayed. I admit though, I would of loved to see some of the Billy Batson character portrayed in the game. However, I understand that the way the story was based and set it wasn't required.

If he does make it into this game, for his fans sake. I hope it's explained and put into detail a little more for those fans returning from MKvsDCU still curious on his background. I know the Superman/Shazam!: The Return of Black Adam gave you a ton of background on the whole given powers of SHAZAM and what not. But felt it was a bit rushed. I would of loved more progression and time to develop the mastery over his power. One of the things I loved about the Spiderman movies was how Peter got his power and then learned how to use it/evolve through mastery of his gift.

If they ever do a movie for him, I really think In terms of Superheroes. His would be one of the more Interesting just based on the whole SHAZAM / Black Adam thing alone. The story for Cap reminds me a lot of How Cap America and Red Skull are. Same with GL and Sinestro.

But in all fairness, I have a great deal of respect for any and all characters in comics. Every character who's been around long enough deserves continuity and development. Cap Marvel is definitely no exception.

He's definitely deserving of a place!

Has there been any talk of him from NetherRealm?

Well lets talk about him.

What would be his super move? Intro? Win pose?
What alt skins should he have? Who should voice him? What special moves should he have?

Well, for a victory pose I definately want him to turn back into Billy Batson. Maybe call the unconcious a punk and swagger off. It seems like the perfect way to end the match as Captain Marvel.

For moves, I say they all have to relate back to S.H.A.Z.A.M.


Solomon - Wisdom - I'd say a retreat move

Hercules - Strength - I'd say a throw/slam

Atlas - Stamina - A minor health regen, like Shang Tsung's soul steal, minus damage to the opponent.

Zeus - Power - Good excuse for a lightning projectile.

Achilles - Courage - A one time power up.

Mercury - Speed - A charge, perhaps a charge attack.
