"Shazam" gets the cover of Justice League #0

So this is what DC is doing with "The-Character-That-Cannot Use-His-Name-On-The-Cover." I've been following the story. It is well-written and interesting, and I am approaching it as a sort of "Earth 2," "alternate universe," or "ultimates" Captain Marvel. It stands up well for itself so far, but it's like watching King Arthur movies. You have to take it on its own terms or else your body may rebel from trying to swallow all the "re-interpretations." That being said, I am not a big fan of this new, over-glitzed costume. I preferred the hero that he used to look like than the one that this one is looking like.

Wow! That's hideous. Personally, I don't even like when they do the metallic gold lightning bolt and accessories. Give me straight up red and yellow any day!
