    but how did Shazam introduced himself to the others???

    If he say, my name is Shazam, doesn't he reverts back to Billy Batson???
    Spoiler:
    He doesn't revert. I guess he has to say "Shazam!" with intent to summon the lightning, but when the lightning comes...

    Spoiler:

    Cyborg shows up before he does. Flash introduces Cyborg.

    When Shazam shows up, he just says he's with Cyborg.

    Spoiler:
    I'm fairly certain he introduces himself by name, Shazam.

    Spoiler:

    At 43:46 --- you're right, he does.

    I guess I mentally blocked that because it didn't make sense to me!

    This Shazam apparently can control when the lighting actually DOES hit him through saying his name.

    Spoiler:
    Maybe he has to yell it loudly enough to summon lightning?

    Meh, I don't like that explanation.

    The mythos of Shazam has evolved a lot since his original 1960s debut and I think its all been for the better.

    The mythos went from some old Wizard being the true source of the ancient Greek Gods power to being a Lord of Order, like Dr. Fate.

    I tend to like the idea that intent has to accompany him saying his name so he doesn't fall into the same trap as other heros / anti-heroes where their own name becomes taboo; even to themselves.

    Consequently, I'll toss out I really liked that short stent where they explored Aquaman's powers being related to the Lords of Order in so far that his trident is in fact a Lord of Order and gave him access to some phenomenal magic that easily surpassed Zanata's in raw power. I'm honestly sad we haven't seen this Aquaman explored in animation yet; I think he'd be popular.

    This wouldn't be an issue if he was still called Captain Marvel

    The World's Finest has new reviews up for Justice League: War, one for the film itself and the other for the Blu-ray release. Granted, a fair chunk of the fanbase has seen this movie due to the two-week digital preview, but the reviews are live for those interested.



    Talkbacks for Justice League: War goes live tomorrow morning. Justice League: War hits Blu-ray and DVD home video February 4th, 2014.
