Cameron Stewart design of Marvel family for Multiversity Thunderworld
The “Thunderworld” issue with art by Stewart will focus on Shazam and the Fawcett characters, and as that art appeared on the screen, Morrison cried, “It’s the best Shazam ever!!!” Stewart recalled that Morrison announced his involvement on the one-shot before he even knew he was doing it, but he was willing to go wherever Morrison wanted.
"I didn’t want to do a flat out emulation of CC Beck…but I wanted it to have the same quality," he said of his take on the characters. Morrison said the effect is that the Captain Marvel of this series really looks like Captain Marvel rather than just another version of Superman. Set on Earth 5, the book will be more of the all-ages book of "The Multiverity" as Morrison said he wanted to make each book completely unique so as to appeal to as many readers as possible. "Thunderworld" is Morrison’s Pixar story or — as Stewart called it — the "All-Star Superman" of Shazam’s world.
Dr. Sivanna will be a major villain for the whole project as he tracks Shazam’s lightning back to its source and finds a way to build “a technological Rock of Eternity” by scientifically reverse-engineering that magic. Stewart said that he and colorist Nathan Fairbairn were the first artists done with their part of the event, and now he’s enjoying seeing art from other creators coming in. “Frank Quitely’s taken two and a half years with a little detour into Millarwolrd, but [Cameron] was finished in five minutes!” Morrison laughed.
So is he going to be called Shazam or Captain Marvel?
