This is one of my gripes with the game’s story. I don’t have a problem with Superman killing Shazam — that’s actually a great moment to show just how far Superman has sunk. I mean, Shazam once saved Superman’s life from John Constantine’s trap. And now he gets repaid by being killed because he didn’t want to commit genocide?

They could have devoted an entire issue for an epic battle between the two. Personally, I would have loved it if they show them on equal footing at first. Then Superman’s vulnerability to magic starts to work against him. The fight can still go either way when Wonder Woman or any of Superman’s lackeys jump in and swarm him, allowing Superman to kill him helplessly. At least this scenario plays to the fans who believes Shazam can beat Superman. This also sets Superman up as a dirty heel who would do anything.

Yes. I watch WWE.
