Am I right to say (New 52) Jay Garrick is as fast as Cptn Marvel

I say that because Captain Marvel has the speed of mercury and New 52 Jay Garrick received his powers from this god.

That would be a reasonable assumption. But given that Billy tended to use his other powers (strength, flight) and now seems a bit more inclined towards using his lightning, I somehow doubt we'll see him running around at Garrick's speed.

Also: SUPERSPEED PARKOUR?! WHY HAS NO ONE THOUGHT OF THIS BEFORE?!

My only hate is that Jay hasn't shown any insane feats like Barry has on Earth 0 Barry is actually stated to be faster than Jay

@therrieur: In the new 52 Im not sure Shazam has the powers of S H A Z A M anymore. His powers seem more magic/lightning based.

Has Billy or Adam been stated to recieve their powers from the various gods of the Greek and Egyptian pantheons like before? Or are they retconning them to be simply 'powerful mage' types?

haven't seen an actual definition yet. And their transformations seems to be that of willpower not juts saying the name. Since his name is Shazam and he has said it a few times without turning back.
