On a related note I would like to see Billy Batson ("orginal" Captain Marvel/Shazam return to the JSA. Even with him taking the Wizard's place that could open some potentially cool plotlines. If the JSA could have Dr fate and the Spectre on the team I am sure there would be room for the Wizard incarnation of Billy Batson.

Some fun scenes to see happen with The Wizard (Billy)..Him talking to Courtney (Star Spangled kid). Him talking with the new Starman...this I can see..."So you used to be a kid and now are a Wizard??" Cool. "I fought Mordru once but he was never a kid" ;\)

In a more serious note the Wizard (Billy) talking with Hawkman about ancient egypt, the nature of magic, and the natural cycles of Life and Death....things like that

just some food for thought

I personally don't want that to happen. I never liked Billy on the JSA, nor on the JLA either. I never liked DC's concept of Billy becoming physically an adult but retaining his kid mind. That always creeped me out. I always strongly preferred Freddy because he didn't become physically an adult. I also liked the original Fawcett take on Billy because in those Golden Age stories I never had the impression that "the Big Red Cheese" had a kid's mind.

I know Billy has a whole new schtick now. I presume he no longer transforms into a physical adult - am I right?
