While I'm on the subject of the Marvel Family...

Ok, let's see if I have this straight...

- The wizard Shazam is dead.

- Billy Batson, the former Captain Marvel, is taking his place and now has long white hair and a white suit.

- Freddy Freeman is now the new Captain Marvel.

- Mary Marvel was depowered, thrown into a coma, woke up and first became a black-leather-clad villainess, then a punked-out thrall of Darkseid, and now a black-leather-clad villainess again.

- Mr. Tawky Tawny, the Talking Tiger, is currently hosting the essence of Darkseid's son Kalibak and was last seen ripping people's arms and legs off.


Seeing the current condition of the Marvel Family makes me think of a certain acronym.

But it's not "SHAZAM".

It's "FUBAR".

Wait...Tawky Tawny is bad now TOO? I missed that. Next thing you know, Hoppy, the Marvel Bunny will be ripping people's throats out.

And Merry Christmas!

"Wait...Tawky Tawny is bad now TOO? I missed that."

It was in FINAL CRISIS. At least it LOOKED like Tawky Tawny.


"Next thing you know, Hoppy, the Marvel Bunny will be ripping people's throats out."

With NASTY BIG POINTY TEETH!!! (In my best John Cleese voice.)

And Merry Christmas to you, too!
