Will it be Billy or Freddy?

So, since billy batson had been stripped of the power of shazam and it is now with freddy freeman, its putting the question in my head, with him possibly getting his own comic again, will cap be billy or freddy? I would personally hope that its billy

I want Billy, and I think just about every CM fan wants Billy. 
Freddy's cool, but he's not, nor ever will be the true Captain Marvel.

@RScottH08: Definatly either Billy, or they will go with the Flashpoint route and have all the kids form up together to become Captain Marvel. Either way I have a feeling that in the Reboot he will be called Captain Thunder like he was iin Flashpoint

@Billy Batson: Seeing as you're a huge fan of Billy, how would you feel if they took the Flashpoint route with Captain Marvel?

i hope they dont go the flashpoint route, just good old classic billy is what i want. the whole 7 in 1 thing was to much to me. i felt like everytime they turned into 'captain thunder' the were forming a robot from power rangers or sumthin lol 

 

i also hope that he just stays captain marvel and not captain thunder like flashpoint either

As something different, maybe they could start with Freddie, and after Freddie loses the powers to Billy, Billy will then take over the title?
 
Just saying...

I actually like that idea, perhaps freddy does something to be deemed unworthy like billy, then billy could prove himself once again and regain the power
 

@DEGRAAF: 
Actually i wouldnt mind that either, kinda cool to have a golden age feel world to read about, good question

@Baddamdog
well there is the an interview from brian azzarello from a couple of weeks ago, he didnt say much at all except, "shazams coming, alright." so it will probably come out when batman inc, and jsa do, i'd say early next year in maybe january or so

I like Freddy, I really do, but Billy Batson is and always will be the one, true Captain Marvel.

that would be interesting bc while it seems like a long long long long shot, i figured they would show Kal-L in the JSA or say that he died and that is why Powergirl is on the team (if she is on the new JSA)

I would want Captain Marvel and Shazam in the Main DCU

its only right for Billy to be the one they bring in, They should change his codename to Shazam though.

Billy!... Do you need to ask? He's the original, the real deal! The CM we all know and/or love!

#21 Posted by RScottH08 (249 posts) - - Show Bio

it just seemed like they really wanted freddy as cm to be succesfull and it kinda didnt happen, like i said earlier, i do want it to be billy, but i keep getting this wierd feeling that they might try to push freddy onto us, which i hope isnt the case
