How A $4 Million Lawsuit Created 'Shazam!'

We live in confusing times. I'm old enough to remember when Captain Marvel was male and had a costume that looked a lot like Superman's except for the colors. Then Captain Marvel became part of the MCG and was an alien in a totally different costume. Now Captain Marvel today is female and has a different costume still, with totally different powers than had her predecessors. I'd give it all up and just read Nick Fury, who used to be white but is now black, or the Hulk, who used to be green but now also comes in red and also in an assortment of versions - immortal, world war, world breaker, and so forth. What's a confused comics fan to do?

The obvious answer is to blame it all on DC Comics and the above video will tell you why.

I guess. DC and Marvel have been copying each other's characters for years. This kind of glosses over the rise of Marvel and the fact it has done a better job - first with how it's portrayed them and then with how it's adapted to the audience over the years. Which is why you (and I) have pretty much given up. You can't go back - doesn't work and wouldn't sell anyways. But there's a lot of great independent stuff out there and that works for me.
