I wanted to ask a little question about the character's continuity. I'm not that familiar with the new 52 reboot, I only started to read this character two or three months ago, but it really caught my attention basically because I grew up with the strong idea that a superhero should be good, should never kill and should always make the right decision, characteristics really hard to find on superheroes these days. I hate bad**s characters, and I've always searched for the pure good unaltered superhero, and I think CM embodies these characteristics: as far as I know he never killed anyone and he has always had a positive personality (until recently...but I can't say I don't understand Geoff's take on the character). Basically I'm really starting to like him more than my longtime beloved character, Spider-man. That being said, I really have difficulties understanding the character's continuity (there are definetly too much origin stories!!!!!, as I'm not that familiar with the whole new 52 concept, even though i tried so much to understand it via forums or wikipedia...I hope someone can enlighten me
- Which is DC's Shazam official origin story? (read on wikipedia it's Power of Shazam! - is it correct?)
- Does Fawcett Comics' continuity (so Whiz comics...Marvel family...) still count?
- Has the new 52 reboot cancelled everything about the character (so is it the official starting point for reading it)?
- And last...which is Black Adam's original story? Is Marvel Family #1 still in continuity or is it Power of Shazam/or New 52 back story?
Thanks a lot :)
