It’s that time again, for us to talk about whatever and stuff. I’ve brought this topic up before and would love to hear some more thoughts, and your feelings on under appreciated characters.
I’ve always loved the Marvel Family/Shazam! characters from DC. Outside of Captain Marvel and Black Adam though, they’ve gotten kind of neglected. Sure, there are some goofy as hell Marvel Family members (the Lieutenant Marvels, Uncle Marvel), but Captain Marvel Jr. and Mary Marvel are amazing heroes in their own right.
DC screwed them both up pretty badly right at the end of the post-Crisis universe, but the Marvels were pure icons of hope and along with their vast power, they deserved better.
