Prime Earth Spot

This page used to be reserved for the wizard but, since Cap. Marvel's new mainstream name is "Shazam", we have a bit of a dilemma with the Prime Earth spot. Let's face it, if somebody's looking for "Prime Earth Shazam", they want Billy. Although it might be odd to bump the wizard down on his own disambig, the featured article should be what we expect people to look for. Does anybody have any reservations about putting Billy in the Prime Earth spot? --- Haroldrocks talk 19:44, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

I would say we make a page like "The Wizard Shazam", because that's what I mainly have seen him referred to as, if I remember correctly. That way the champions named Shazam can properly be placed in the Shazam disambig, and note that it shouldn't be mistaken with The Wizard Shazam. Jsd1710 (talk) 19:55, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
I am not fond of that. --Tupka217 19:59, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
Yeah. I'm not exactly a fan of that either. Specifically the name - "The Wizard Shazam". Maybe we could make a disambig for his actual name - Jebediah of Canaan. True, the name is only used to describe the New Earth and Injustice versions, but it would still separate the wizard from the hero. What do you think, Tupka? --- Haroldrocks talk 22:12, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
I think it can stay at Shazam, but the text should (more clearly) reflect that the name is now used by Billy too. The current text isn't the new style we have for infoboxes anyway. --Tupka217 22:29, September 13, 2014 (UTC)
Sure. That's fine with me. All I want is to get Billy in that Prime Earth spot. --- Haroldrocks talk 22:32, September 13, 2014 (UTC)

Main Pre-New 52 Incarnation

Shouldn't the top pre-flashpoint incarnation spot go to the New Earth version of the wizard rather then the Earth-S version since the New Earth version has had significantly more character development then his Earth-S counterpart, has been given an actual name unlike his Earth-S counterpart, and has made close to twice as many more comic book appearances then his Earth-S counterpart.
