Captain Marvel Adventures #5

Captain Marvel #5
It's been a while since I've posted Captain Marvel issue. This issue is from December 12, 1941. It's only fitting that Marvel is tearing up a Nazi airplane on this cover. Captain Marvel was the top selling comic book character of the 1940s, outselling even Superman. DC Comics forced Fawcett Comics to give them all their characters after a long court battle. DC claimed that Captain Marvel was a rip off of Superman. Um, whatever. They never looked the same, acted the same, were drawn stylistically the same... I guess if you were totally drunk you might think they were brothers or even sisters for that matter. Let's pour the judge another round of drinks.
