Review | Justice League: Darkseid War: Shazam! #1 [2015] Scott Kolins

During the first act of Justice League: Darkseid War, Darkseid is killed by the Anti-Monitor and Shazam becomes the God of Gods. The Wizard gave Billy Batson replacement Gods since the connection to the Old Gods was severed after Darkseid’s death. Billy meets the replacement Gods who all warn them about Zonuz who wants the Wizard’s staff to return from the Source. Zonuz is the father of Darkseid. Shazam takes on Zonuz and defeats him who now wields the power of twelve Gods. This is an amazing issue as it builds on the mythos of Shazam and connects it to the Darkseid War.
