Billy Batson is forced to face some hard truths and choices in SHAZAM! #13 as the Monster Society of Evil has been unleashed on the world and Mr. Mind reveals he's been controlling the actions of Billy's estranged father all this time (and now has the power of one of Shazam's champions).

All of the Marvel Family is in action here against a wild assortment of villains including King Kull, the Crocodile Men, Jeepers, Mr. Atom, and others. With the perfect hostage, Mr. Mind forces Billy to break down the magical barriers between worlds leading to a tease of what writer Geoff Johns has in mind to allow the comic to go out with a bang before ending its run with issue #15.

SHAZAM! #13 provides quite a bit as Billy is bested, but still smart enough to find a new way to fight back against Mr. Mind as he forces the worm to pick on someone his own size. As for the villain on the horizon, I will be curious what a Captain Marvel vs. Superboy Prime fight might look like.
