I just finished reading "Justice League'' #7 and it was pretty mediocre, however that isn't what I'm writing about. If you have been reading the New 52 Justice League title, then you know that at the end of each issue, we get a sneak peek at different stories that might occur in the future. This week, we got a glimpse into the up and coming Captain Marvel/Shazam featured story. We saw a highly upset Wizard Shazam looking for his new avatar, we got a glimpse of a new (and really buff) Dr. Sivana, and his intentions and motivations for looking for "magic" and most importantly, we saw a very different Billy Batson. Now, the Billy we all know and love was kind, funny, nice, innocent to the point of being kind of naive, and happy go lucky. He comes across like this at first, but rapidly changes. The scene shows him in an interview with a foster couple looking to adopt. He acts well mannered, adorable, smart and kind and knock their socks off. However upon their departure, he insults and ridicules them, calling them idiots, and his social worker goes as far as to call him, "The most unpleasant boy she's ever had the unpleasure of knowing." He is then called "trouble" by the narraration. My question is, how do you feel about this drastic change in Billy Batson, is it DC's way of trying to update him to reflect how teenagers act these days? Will it affect his attitude as Shazam? What do you think??
