DC Comics Universe and Infected King Shazam #1 Spoilers and Review follows.

DC’s Year Of The Villain Sees Batman Who Laughs Get A Former Captain Marvel Into Secret Six?!

An infected Billy Batson is done with his family…

…and as King Shazam is off to find a new more worthy family.

First, he finds and defeats Atlas; so he’s not worth.

Second, after failing to find Hercules, he finds and defeats Thor; so he’s not worth.

Third, he finds and defeats Rao; so he’s not worth.

Fourth, he finds and defeats Ares; so he’s not worth.

He then maims his sister…

…as he marches to Hell Arisen!

The Pulse:

While I’m a huge Shazam fan, I don’t necessarily like “Shazam” being his nom de guerre now instead of Captain Marvel, but I understand the non-comics reason DC did that. Anyhow, this was a decent issue with drama and lots of action across pantheons. An emotional cliffhanger. Entertaining. 7.5 out of 10.
