      You should read the archives first, Frank, to familiarize yourself with the characters here. There are some problems with what you're proposing. Shiva (a male character) is retired and no longer using his powers, so he's already out of the picture. Also, he never said Shazam to transform into his powerful form. He said the nonsense word "BVSSGG," I believe, and had his own pantheon of Hindu gods that spelled out that word. There are five very short Shiva stories on the archives that would introduce you to the character.

      I agree that it would be good to have another round-robin here. But Shiva should not take part, since he's retired. I'd rather the focus be on something cool, like a new Monster Society of Evil. We'd talked about having a Monster Society round-robin at Earth-S quite a while ago, but we went with the Black Adam Family idea instead. A new Monster Society could be a good way to feature all the major and minor Earth-S characters. It could be set in the summer of 1988 so it takes place after all the existing stories, both archived and unarchived.

      I do not think violence is necessary, but I would like to see the lame
      marvels lose their powers and as you state have some new blood enter
      the areana. The Marvel Family, imo, should be comprised of Billy,
      Mary, and Cap Jr., Mr. Tawny the large green cat, and Uncle Marvel w/
      no powers. Black Billy would be the exception, but call himself
      Captain Thunder.

      Some other changes I would suggest would be to write the Hindu gods
      from saying "Shabam" from "Shazam" since Z does not exist in their
      language, thus unrevealing that Shiva is a false incarnation of
      Shazam. Maybe she is the reason for the all of the power syphoning of
      the other Marvels?

      This would be a great opportunity to bring newly created characters
      from writers into the mix? And highlight other characters such as
      Bulletman, Spysmasher, and other Fawcett characters. I'd suggest a
      round robin, but I think we need to agree on the beginning and end
      first so that we can arrange for Shiva (hopefully) and the person
      behind the dark magic syphoniing (If we go this route) first.
