Captain Marvel and the zeitgeist: You can have Heath Ledger's Joker or you can have Billy Batson in Shazam!, but you can't have both.

The irony here is that the comics version of Captain Marvel can actually get fairly dark: witness a lobotomized Captain Marvel as a stooge for Lex Luthor in Kingdom Come, the quasi-reformed Black Adam committing genocide in 52, or what they've done to poor Mary Marvel. And that's not even getting started on Miracleman.
