No, Captain Marvel needing/getting trained by Superman is ALMOST as bad of an idea as Batman being older than Superman.

Captain Marvel is his own hero and doesn't need training.

I agree, he should be his own man and his own legend. I have no good words concerning the recent Geoff Johns revamp as he stripped out everything I found appealing about the character and worse still made him so inherantly unlikable in BOTH identities that he surely failed to connect to any audience out there. There is a nasty, cynical, side to Geoff Johns' writing in recent years that has derailed numerous characters he has touched - his Wonder Woman being the clearest example.

The single best Captain Marvel tale in the last three years came from Grant Morrison just a couple of months ago in Multiversity's 'Thunderworld', he understands the simple appeal of the character and his world, and showed that the best way forward for the character is to put him on his own earth so he can stand tall as its greatest hero and exist in his own context. It has worked for Earth-2, and I feel it would work for the Shazam family as well.
