What can I say..... It was perfect in every sense of the word :)

This is exactly what I wanted this book to be and so much more, it made me so so so happy to read this.

As you can all guess, this meant a lot to me, but what I'm really thinking about is what this meant to you? many people don't know Captain Marvel like I do, they see his old self as shallow, unoriginal, or uninteresting, and I think that;s because quite frankly people really don;t know him. To me, he's one of the most unique characters ever created, and in the New 52 e's really lost what made him so unique. This book took everything I love about the character and showcased it in the best possible way.

What I hope is that this issue shows there is more to the character then one may think, it's not a cut and dry story, Captain Marvel's story is one of true character, and one of wonder that makes anyone who reads feel like a kid again. I am open to change and new interpretations, and I absolutely love the New 52, but with New 52 Cap I really feel like the world lost something special, something we really don't get anymore, and maybe even something we all need.

Every Night before I go to sleep I wish I could wake up in a world where Billy is called Captain Marvel, and the Wizard is called Shazam, and for today, that wish came true. I know for every issue we all say "I wish this could be a regular series" but for this one in particular I'd give anything for it to continue.

I hope with all my heart that this issue helps DC/WB see what they may have lost, and what they may want back. At the very least if this issue helped even one person see why I miss what this character use to be, then I can sleep a little easier tonight.

I'm just gonna quote you because this is exactly how i felt towards this issue :)

Oh and, SHAZAM!!!

Flash is faster. Speed is his thing. Superman is insanely fast but i've always believed that his powers have limits based on conventional physics, so in theory he tops out at the speed of light. Flash however has the whole draws his powers from an extra dimensional energy called the speed force which enables him to go beyond.

@slimj87d: Thanks, i hope this is nothing more than a trend to celebrate batman's 75 year because its taxing on my like of the character.

Word and it's something i'm really upset about.

@_mongul: I don't understand that, wasn't his fight with the league 5-6 years ago? He hasn't healed completely in that time?

So batman isn't afraid to go up against Darkseid in proper combat but he's scared of a guy who sprays acid from a flower. Ok.

This would be the same guy who just punked the entire Justice League with his chemistry set?

Mmmhmm, i wonder how long it'll be under Snyder and Tomasi's pen that batman starts to have the same problems that superman apparently has(according to non superman readers and lazy writers) where he's too powerful for any threat to actually affect him.

Of course, I'm working under the assumption Darkseid was severely weakened.

Nothing that suggests so, at least nothing i read.

Anyway, the insane batfans are sure to get a kick out of this, i'm just wondering though doesn't this kinda ruin him? And essentially make him a joke. Now Bats is my second fav comic character but i'm finding it hard to imagine him going back to street level after this and that's pi$$ing off.

And please to those trying to justify in anyway that this doesn't completely seal the whole deal about batgod please do so, i'd love to read it.

This OP makes no sense. If you're talking in regards to the movie, batman may be all experienced and stuff but he's never come across a being like superman, no amount of experience dealing with street crime is gonna ready him for that. Let's just wait and see what they do with the movie.

Can't believe Peter Tomasi is writing this, thought he was better than this.

Spider-man 2 had the best visuals but I think everyones general hate of that film is going to prevent it from winning

I know right :(
