DIAL:
http://www.wizkidsgames.com/heroclix/dc/figures_dials.asp?dialid=10893&unitid=12581&universeid=6

ANALYSIS:
This is the craziest dial since Supernova's Experienced Captain Marvel...funny how it's another company's Captain Marvel. For such a nutjob, LE Shazam starts his dial as a basic Super Strong, Charging brick...just right for an opening strike. But pushing him becomes a dilemma.

His 2nd click gains Outwit. That's good. But he loses Super Strength and Impervious for a weak 15 Defense + Toughness with Incapacitate, making this a slot you never want to push onto. Leaving that one for the 3rd click is no good, either; 17/Invulnerability is balanced out by a putrid 7 Attack Value and the return of Battle Fury. And so on: 4th click gains Hypersonic Speed and Prob Control but 5th has weak AV and DV stats. This dial hits highs and lows like a roller coaster except for the back end's DV, which levels out then sinks to a low of 13. And that, in my opinion, is the nail in the tire that ends this joyride.

FEATS?
DAMAGE SHIELD works often, but not on the clicks he most needs it to. FORTITUDE is a better fit because he can't afford to lose a single power on those weak clicks.

ETC.
Reflects a post-Infinite Crisis Captain Marvel who's inherited the power of the old Wizard Shazam and can't quite handle it.

IN SUM:
He's powerful, boasting a very strong AV and Damage deep in his dial. But inconsistent early defense (that becomes decidedly mediocre down the stretch) and unfortunate AV stat dips make for few reasons to pick this LE over the Veteran Shazam, who's just 12 points more.

RATING: 2.5 of 5.
