Captain Marvel, The World's Mightiest Mortal.
A MAJOR reshuffling for Captain Marvel after re-re-watching Clash
, he's been given his Blast but now no longer has his massive impervious effect.
As far as I'm concerned, Solomon's Wisdom is perfect for the effect I want it to provide, and as well, he's only a scooch under Superman when it comes to Toughness - Supes hits him for sure, but it's less of a 'death blow' than it is for any other character.
In addition, because Captain Marvel now has his Shazam-Bolt, he's much more dangerous. Expect a Marvel/Superman battle soon.
May 16, 2007: I'm still unhappy with my Captain Marvel build, but not because of power scale - powerscalewise he's precisely where I want him.
No, the trouble is that I'm still trying to allocate points for various effects, and I can't decide how I want to play out his reliance on the Wisdom of Solomon. For example, Captain Marvel has wobblingly been shown to not be terribly intelligent about some very basic things [why he feels such-and-such way about girls, for example], because of Billy Batson. However, he's also not an idiot.
I played it as him relying on Solomon's Wisdom and his own normal Wisdom instead of him having prodigious intelligence. He doesn't have the -intellect- of Solomon; just the wisdom.
So let's see. On the SHAZAM checklist, my build now has:
Wisdom of Solomon
Strength of Hercules
Stamina of Atlas
Power of Zeus
Courage of Achilles
Speed of Mercury!
So for now, I'd call Captain Marvel complete. SHAZAM!
