JUSTICE LEAGUE #0 Variant Covers Revealed

The zero issue will feature less League members and more Shazam!

One of the questions I originally had was how could there really be a zero issue for JUSTICE LEAGUE when they weren't even a team until a few issues into the series? We couldn't really have flashbacks to each member since that's what's happening in their own titles.

If you've read the solicit, you already know the answer. JUSTICE LEAGUE #0 will focus on the Power of Shazam as well as feature the origin of Pandora, which leads into the 'Trinity War.'

DC has revealed the variant covers to the issue today on their blog by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado.

I sure am super excited for this. I've been digging the Shazam back ups and, of course, wish they were longer. I can't wait to see more on Billy Batson and Shazam.

Check out the black-and-white variant as well.

JUSTICE LEAGUE #0 is on sale September 19, 2012.

Very dynamic! Can't wait to see how the first chapter of Shazam ends!

Reis' variant is better than Frank's cover.
Hopefully Billy will change for the better <_<

yes we need more shazam

Well, at least he doesn't look like a serial killer on the variant cover.

I can't wait either. I am looking forward to the character development where Billy becomes the good kid we know, maybe not so innocent but still a good guy and less mean and hostile and hardened. But, honestly, that one image of Captain Marvel with an evil grin (angry eyebrows with a smile) makes me worried that the evolution of his character might not be so fast or much at all. What if, when Billy becomes Marvel he starts out using his powers to get back at the world? I am just worried that the sweet and friendly Captain Marvel wont show up at all. I was also worried that they would go the New 52 rout and use all the kids to combine into Captain Marvel, and it looks like I was wrong about that.

Do you think once Billy becomes Captain Marvel he uses his magic powers to give the tiger its ability to speak?

Still can't wait to see it though. And I hope its gets its own comic in the New 52. I also want Cyborg to get his own comic too.

I'm glad Cap is finally starting to smile. Maybe once Billy is given the power of Shazam his goodness comes to the forefront and he is happier more often.

That would be great. Captain Marvel is a character who shouldn't be darkened.

I heard that these 0 covers are just promotional. Also that the actual covers for all 52 zero issues havnt been released yet.

Posted by supermanfan122508

Must. Buy.

Posted by wildcardcomics

I love how we all keep calling it "Captain Marvel". :D

Posted by Emperormeister734

Can't Wait

Posted by EthanFantastic

It's quite sad when the back-ups are what make you buy the actual book. This really needs to be its own series.

Posted by Grey56

I like the original cover to # 0 better ?

Indeed.

Posted by TheBigRedCheese

Captain Marvel is smiling again. :D

Too bad I still don't like that suit he's wearing.

Posted by Smart_Dork_Dude

Now THAT is Captain Marvel. I was beginning to get worried.

Posted by wowylied

Captain marvel look like a pervert rapist on the normal cover seriously.

DC tried to make a "darker" Captain Marvel back in 1987 with the "Shazam!: The New Beginning" mini-series by Roy & Dannette Thomas and Tom Mandrake. It was spun out of the Legends crossover event. Thankfully, that version didn't stick and was promptly forgotten about in favor of the Captain Marvel who was appearing in Justice League.

I hope DC isn't going to try it again. If anything, I feel they should be using the model set by Jerry Ordway in "The Power Of Shazam!". In my opinion, Ordway's was the best modern take on the Marvel family.

Ain't that the truth.

Posted by longbowhunter

Great cover! Havent been reading the back up. I would probably buy a solo book though.

So, will subscribers receive the #0 issues automatically, or do we have to buy them like everybody else?

mmm i don't like that flashpoint version (all the kinds to combine into Capitan marvel) i prefer the old-three-member Marvel family.

   
Neither I like the huge golden triangle in the chest, it looks uncomfortable.

I'm getting this for certain!!!!!!! Can't wait! The variant I'm seriously considering as well.

The first cover looks brilliant, I would really consider getting that issue if I saw it on the shelf, it's highly appealing.

I just wish Lefield was writing and penciling ...

Posted by xanthiss

The first one he looks like he is auditioning for Glee and the second one he looks evil.
