The New Champion of SHAZAM! #1

Mary has left her old life behind and started college Vassar, but it seems her old life isn't done with her just yet. Billy may be gone, but SHAZAM needs a new champion. Despite her protests, loud and awkwardly to a talking bunny only she can hear, that hero is Mary.

It may not be the Hoppy I want (c'mon DC, strike him with lightning already!), but the comic does make use of a talking rabbit from the Rock of Eternity to get Mary back into the super-hero gig, whether she wants to or not. No longer sharing the magic with the rest of the family, Mary has been given the full power of the wizard which she uses to stop a bank robbery (before, again, attempting to decline the gift). There's still trouble in the world, including some back home she will need to investigate. Seems like Mary's plans of easing into her new life at college isn't going to go exactly as planned.
