Surely we can find a cover that says something like, "Shazam starring Captain Marvel?" EDIT: "The Original Captain Marvel." I found cover #3 the least cheesy, but would the fact he obscures the word, "original" create any problems? Also, I found larger versions of the covers here: [http://www.coverbrowser.com/covers/shazam]]

Anime-tedFixed the link...we'd need a lampshade to adequately cover this, I think.
For what it's worth, I found out cover #9 on those pages appears to refer to Captain Marvel by name and also as, "Shazam."
I like this◊
Any of those covers would work better than the image at the moment. I like #3 too
Teutonic Tomboy T-GirlI think #3's as good as you're going to get. Among other things (as can be noticed in the cover gallery), DC really couldn't even lampshade the difference, at least not on covers, because for the most part they can't use "Captain Marvel" on covers, even as secondary text. It's possible that there's a good interior art lampshading somewhere, but none comes immediately to mind. EDIT: Hmm, actually, I did find this splash page◊, which spells it out pretty clearly!

That picture seems more effective than cover #3.
What picture should we use?
Do we need consensus?
Anime-tedIt's been this long, I'd say put it up and see if anyone bitches...if not, we're good.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
