All six tackle Adam, as he fights back. Capt... er, Shazam, tells the others to evacuate the streets, while he will take care of Black Adam. There is a showdown between the two, as the others evacuate the city. Mary is able to take on Bryer in his demon form. Back at the showdown, Tawny stalks Adam, but he swats the tiger away. Capt...er, Shazam reveals he has a kinship to the tiger, as visiting him at the zoo with his parents is one of his cherished memories, and considers Tawny family. He quickly enchants Tawny, turning him into a battle cat, but he did the spell incorrectly, causing him and the other members of the Shazam Family to weaken as their enchantments fade. Soon, the Family is back to their normal selves, as Adam and Capt... er, Shazam fight to a standstill. He transforms back into Billy, and cons Adam into reverting back to his mortal self. Within seconds, he ages hundreds of years, and dies. Billy transforms back into his enchanted form, as the seven deadly sins leave Bryer, now able to roam free without a host upon Black Adam's death. Bryer is humiliated one more time, as he stand naked in front of a crowd. Everyone cheers the new Champion of Magic. It's Christmas morning, and Billy decides to stay with his new family at the Vasquez house. Then a epilogue of Sivana, somewhere in New York, completely troll like in appearance, discovering a talking worm who calls himself Mr Mind.
The final chapter was fairly good, much better than some of the previous chapters. As predicted, the whole Shazam Family was brought in very quickly. Not just Mary and Freddy, but the other three kids as well, which siphons the spotlight off Capt... er, Shazam, and underscores he needs a team to defeat the enemy. None of the Shazam Family's names were revealed, except for Freddy, who called himself "King Shazam". My guess his hair would turn black in the enchanted form, as a nod to Elvis, who had light brown hair naturally, and dyed it black when he became famous, did not happen. Rather, King Shazam has long, Thor-like blond hair. The epilogue is a certain lead in to an on going series, but none is planned at the moment. Chapter 13 earns a B.
On the other hand, Curse Of Shazam in its entirety earns a C-. It has some good moments, a couple good concepts, but often falls back on the same shtick that has prevented the DC version of the Captain Marvel character from soaring back to his Golden Age Fawcett greatness. Many of the changes Johns made to the essentials of the characters are pointless, as they are not the problem. The problem is keeping the character pigeon holed in a "Big in tights" mentality, albeit now with a slight Harry Potter twist to it. Adding the three new kids only dilutes Billy even more. Geoff Johns has a legion of fans who will blindly follow him wherever he leads. They may insure the new "Shazam" is somewhat successful. But to really get Captain Marvel back to his full glory, the only solution to me seems to be to bring in Alex Ross, perhaps with an assist by Mark Waid or Paul Dini, to give us the character as he was in the Justice miniseries.
