My favorite comic book character, without a doubt, is Captain Marvel aka SHAZAM.

No Caption Provided

There is notable history behind the story of Shazam. The TL;DR version is the creators were sued by DC comics for infringing on the rights of their character: Superman. Put yourself in the position of an artist at Fawcett comics. Your boss tells you to redesign the character. Everything (visually) is up for grabs except for the lightning bolt. The story remains the same, but Shazam, or as he was known then, Captain Marvel needs to look as different from Superman as possible.

That is your task. Redesign Shazam so he couldn't be confused for Superman. The only thing you have to keep is the Lightning bolt.

We'll put the contest due by the 11th of Oct.

@egod if you could pin this please?

Perhaps not the most extreme reimagining of Captain Marvel (depicted as a General here), but if I'm creating a flagship character in 1936 America, I'd probably go with one who has a quasi-military look. I'd also give him a home base somewhere in a southern state, since so many of Marvel's and DC's characters were based in northern metropolitan areas. Just imagine him shouting "Shazam!" with a southern drawl.

Fascinating 👀

(Yeah, I don't think Cap and Supes are especially alike either. Still, looking forward to see what people will come up with!)

@dragonspine:

nicely done and quick too!

@frischdvh:

Great choice, I agree Shazam/Captain Marvel has always been one of my faves since I was a kid. The stories just had a different feel to them.

Havent, but I think I could go back and reread a lot and still get the same enjoyment after all these years. Loved Captain Marvel jr too and of course Black Adam.

Hello guys. I hope you like this redesign of Shazam. I decided to give him that genie vibe. He's still a kid that turns into a demigod … looking slightly less human, more mysterious yet the same powerful, magical bad ass. I hope you like it. Please give me critiques, I love it.

Tks for the heads up Ramsillustrations !

@blackdog2009:

Glad to see you jump in there. Nice solid entry.

I hope theres more but like the last 2 times they jumped in towards the end of the contest.

I decided to sit this one out since my "The Darkness" pieces are taking more time due to the detail.

Thanks man, I decided to rough one out just in case no one else enters. I may tighten it but if not this it for now. Shazam needs a couple more entries, he deserves it :)

Great job, guys. I'll have my entry completed by tomorrow evening this time. I suspect there will be a few other entries as well. These things usually come down to the last day or so.

After the lawsuit, Fawcett Comics reimagine Captain Marvel as a Army/War comic.

Currently working on the weekend and my phone isnt letting me upload new images. So hopefully this instagram link works.
