    DC continuity has gotten so convoluted, I don't think Johns understood the nature of "Black" Mary's powers. He made it sound like she had a portion of Black Adam's power, but she had given it all back to him some time ago and her current power comes from Darkseid, at which point she began serving him in Final Crisis.

    Between her two stints as Black Mary, she also got her own powers back from the Greek Gods, who bestowed them upon her for her helping to save them from Darkseid's forces. I don't know how Shazam could remove them, and even if he could, how he'd have the right since he didn't bestow them this time.

    And boy, dying in comics has gotten really cheap. Just in the past couple of months, we've seen the resurrection of Isis, Shazam, the original Quasar, and Moondragon

    By the way, is this page still being maintained? The comics in the preview pane above dates back to February and it's now April.

Wow I was really excited about Johns final arc being about Black Adam and the Marvel Family. Johns has always done such a respectful job when writing them that I had hoped he would do his own Marvel series.
Gotta say the lack of logic, cohesion, continuity has made this a going out with a whimper goodbye arc.

As you mention GJ seems out of sync with how the Marvels are operating in the rest of the universe. A huge new addition with Billy's dad and the return of Isis and the Wizard all seem to be rushed.

So far pretty ambitious and pretty dissapointing. I think this would have been a great story line if FLASH REBIRTH and GL Darkest Night weren't in the offing but put those together and this was just one thing too many. Or at least that's how it seems. Too bad.
