      I'm a huge DC fan and picked this up on a whim. Shazam is one of my least favorite characters on their roster but this movie really helps fix that. It also has three other stories of their lesser known heroes also. The Spector, Green Arrow and Johnah hex. Green Arrow has grown in popularity over the years and this short doesn't fail to deliver in the least. The Spector is surprisingly good also. Lastly, it's Johnah Hex. Way better than the Josh Brolin run

      An ancient wizard bestows young Billy Batson with the powers of the gods. He will need them to take down Blqck Adam, an equally powerful tyrant, bent on being earth's ruler. With the help of Superman, he may just realize his potential and take his place as Shazam and be the hero he was destined to be!!

      Nice to have "short" stories from some of DC's other characters besides the "Big 3" or a JL story. Green Arrow even more popular now, thanks to "Arrow". I believe any of these could hold their own full-length movie. Hey DC, we're still waiting on that Teen Titans "Judas Contract" movie!!

      Albeit a bit short, this is an example of DC having fun with their characters. Excellent use of Justice League Unlimited voice actors. I had seen the supplementary shorts on another DVD, but it doesn't diminish those shorts.
