Speak My Name!

Through my name, you are given the powers of these six mighty heroes!


the wit of Simone


the chiaroscuro of van Honthorst


the transquartomuralism of Archie


the semiotics of Zot!


the absurdity of Ambush Bug


the violence of Miller

Now, if this were Infinite Crisis, that backhand would have created the Rolling Head of Random Thug.

Lovely, just lovely.

I wasn't convinced before. I am now. I must get my grubby paws on a copy of Showcase Presents: Shazam!

Because it looks way too dang awesome to exclude from my library.

The back of Cap'n Marvel's hand is a mighty thing. That last panel's sound effect is "slaaapp." Three vowels and an extra P. Wow. Think about how long it takes to produce that particular sound. That's not a short "wak" or "pow." That's more like three or four seconds of solid smacking contained in a single backhand. Yowza. Mess not with The Captain.

Glad to see you're having fun with the SHAZAM Showcase.

But PLEASE tell me you're preparing an essay on Sunny Sparkle, World's Nicest Boy.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why Captain Marvel is still the greatest superhero ever.
