    Just don't by pass Dr. Sivana completely.It's like Superman without Luthor.

    This one's been bouncing around the internet for months, and it still seems like a good idea. I'd like to see the Rock play a bad guy – be interesting to see if he can turn down the charm.

    Billy avenging the death of his parents? So, he's young Bruce Wayne all of a sudden? Since when were his parents killed by a bad guy?

      Jerry Ordway in Power of Shazam. His parents were killed digging artifacts in Egypt.It's when they tried to make Captain Marvel serious.

      • Mike Gold says:

        I think Jerry did a great job. Not to compare his to Smith's, which addressed the essence of the original Parker-Beck concept. But for a super-hero orientation that fit into the DC universe at the time, Ordway's GN was quite good.
