Shazam in the New 52

If you like Captain Marvel than you may be very happy to hear that Captain Marvel will be returning to the New 52, but with a new name. Captain Marvel will be returning as Shazam. Geoff Johns wanted to change Captain Marvel’s name because Shazam is something that is most associated with the character. This will allow for more people to recognize the character.

Shazam will have his first appearance in the new 52 in Justice League issue 7 as a side story, which comes out March 21st.  What do you guys think about this news? Do you like his new name? Are you excited to see him in the Justice League this month?
