Handle with care lest the dullness rub off on you 0

I don't have much experience with the earlier versions of Shazam, but I don't imagine his story was quite so tedious as this. Billy Batson's story is so mind-numbing, we can't help but agree with him when he says he never wants to go back to being a kid again. I can't imagine how painful it must have been to read this in small doses as supporting stories to JLA issues. Like many New 52 revisions, clever ideas are squandered in mediocre writing, painfully obvious plotting, super-duper eye-rolling...
