Action Comics #351 brought about possibly the most amazing villain in the history of ever:
Yeah, I know. It's a pretty flimsy reference to Captain Marvel, what with how "Shazam" is an anagram for the 7 characters from whom Cap gets his powers. So, you can understand why I was expecting... well, not much.
But this guy's powers are pretty bitchin'.
You've got to admit, that's a lot more entertaining than another guy whose just really strong. And he beats the stuffing out of Supes, and that's always a good time:
And just when I can't believe how awesome it all is, he leaves Superman a "Bite Me" message:
BURN! Yeah! Chew on that, Superham!
You know what? I hear there are two more parts to this story, and I'm not sure I'm going to read them. I kind of like things the way they stand right now. It's like watching that wedding scene that comes on after the closing credits of Napoleon Dynamite. It's better to just leave the story while it's awesome.
Seriously, when Napoleon and Deb are playing tetherball and When in Rome's "The Promise" starts playing... just walk away.
And every bit as awesome is this custom-made Zha-Vam action figure!
Off to the Character Hall of Fame with Zha-Vam, for his sheer, unadulterated, awesomeness! More on him tomorrow! See you then!
