Shazam! 3.2 – Bitter Herbs

So Captain Marvel has just saved a runaway truck driven by this week’s baddie, played by Linden Chiles, only we don’t know he’s a baddie yet. And the guy climbs out of his cab and says “Really glad you came along,” with all the emotion one might show a towing company that just happened by.

I don’t know why this finally struck me as weird, but isn’t it odd the way that people respond to Captain Marvel and Isis with no curiosity whatever? Not one person ever responds with shock or surprise. I mean, if these are the only superheroes in their world, the odds of being rescued by one of them, even if you did live in southern California, must be pretty remote. Wouldn’t that be just downright amazing? Not the way anybody in this show plays it.
