Issue 79: The Life And Death Of Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel really does have one of the best deaths in comics, y'all
Hold me closer, Captain Marvel

We’re going to spend the next month tackling one of the most convoluted and messy names in comics! Not Shazam, not Marvelman, but the one (of seven), the ONLY (of seven), CAPTAIN MARVEL! This episode focuses on the Kree warrior, Captain Mar-Vell! What a very different and original name! From his first appearance, through the little boy big boy revamp, all the way to the obviously named Death Of Captain Marvel!

On this episode, Sly attempts to summarize the history of the name Captain Marvel, both in universe and in lawsuits. Phil gets real personal when it comes to his own INEVITABLE death. Darryl strikes some bizarre and wide eyed poses. And Ryan’s got a bit of a cold, so he’s bringing his nasaliest A-game for you.
