The New Champion of SHAZAM! #2

It's been a rough couple of days for Mary. Here foster parents have disappeared and she's left her dream college to return home to foster siblings who seem mostly ambivalent about her return. She's also got that magic bunny popping in from time to time whose suggestions on she can hear. Enrolling in the nearby community college, Mary hopes to discover what happened to her parents and others who have disappeared.

Her spirits aren't improved by a fight with a giant monster and the the three odd shadowy figures who control it. While able to stop the giant flying crocodile thing, Mary doesn't fare nearly as well against them or the sudden celebrity brought on by the local news. Now halfway through the four-issue mini-series, I'd expect to see our heroine (and her bunny) picking up the pace to discover just what is happening in Fawcett City.
