DC Comics gets a new Shazam character and it’s going to be Mary Marvel! Billy Batson’s big sister Mary Bromfield gets Shazam’s cloak in a new miniseries coming in 2022, titled The New Champion of Shazam! The four-track miniseries will be written by Josie Campbell along with Shazam artist Evan Shaner. “For a long time, I just had no interest in returning to anything Shazam-related,” Shaner says. “But I always thought Mary was going to be starring in the book for a while, and that was the one time I would return if that ever happened.”
“It’s been so long since she had her own book,” Shaner added during his interview with Polygon. “Since before she was a DC property. We hope to have the fun and creative energy behind so much of the early things that Binder did, but bring it to a more modern audience and try to make it more related to children or young adults today. “

Here is DC Comics’ synopsis for The new master of Shazam!:
Mary Bromfield has always struggled to decide who she is outside of her family… a little hard to do when you are all superheroes! Now, after Billy Batson’s heroic sacrifice, Shazam’s power has disappeared and she has become powerless.
Most heroes would be desperate, but not Mary. It’s finally time for a journey of self-discovery as she prepares for her first year of college and a civilian life. But nothing is ever really normal for this young hero because she has just been chosen as Shazam’s new champion! (At least according to a talking rabbit sent by her alienated brother Billy.) Will she embrace power? Or will it die along with this world’s hope of survival against the mysterious magical forces waiting to take control?
The new master of Shazam! # 1 will be released on February 8, 2022.
