It's a good thing Captain Marvel flew in when he did, because the villain was just about to realize there was no real end to his brilliant plan. "We've got all the cupcakes, now our plan is over! And now... I guess.... eat?"
Maybe these idiots were planning on fencing them to The Baron on the international black cupcake market... Ha ha ha... black cupcake market... and it took Shazam! to put a stop to it. Were there no teen detectives that could handle the combined terror of food and it being missing?
Nice cape, Shazam. Did you buy that at Gay Baby Gap?
