DC is unlikely to ever sell him off, but Marvel has the Captain Marvel trademark and they won't sell that, so it is a stalemate.

But let's say Shazam does migrate to Marvel, despite DC thinking he is too close of a Superman rip off. Would he fit well in the MU?

I think that yes he would. PROVIDED he is not retconned/shoehorned into continuity as a retried character making a comeback. he needs to be brought in brand new to continuity, as Billy Batson having just gained his powers.

marvel has Superman analogues in Hyperion and The Sentry (hate that character), and they have the rights to Marvelman which is basically the U.K. version of Shazam. So Shazam should fit in rather well, perhaps even better then Hyperion or Sentry.

Also another hero that can give the Hulk a good fight can't be bad to have around ;\)

I have fond memories of the Giffen & DeMatteis JL book when some of the characters made funny comments about Captain Marvel & Mary Marvel being so different and so innocent that they seem to come from a totally different universe ...

IMO, the Marvel family should go back to "Earth-S/Earth-5" and have their own world, own rules.

To begin with, the Fawcett Marvel books were fun & funny (they were literally comic books, actually).

IMO, that's how a Shazam book should be.

Black Adam shouldn't behave like a Namor rip-off just because he has pointed ears.

Captain Marvel shouldn't be compared all the time to Superman and shouldn't appear as an useless guest-star in other DC books ...

Mister Mind & Tawny are too cartoonish characters to fit well with other DC or Marvel comics characters ...
