Poor Big Red Cheese...

You'd think wholesome old Captain Marvel wouldn't get in situations like this...

  1. Wow, is that cover for real?? What year is it?

    Reminds me of the Silver-Age Superman and Jimmy Olsen covers.

  2. Yep, it's real, from 1944.

    The similarity to the later Superman stuff is no doubt a large part due to Otto Binder, the main Captain Marvel writer of this era, who went on to be one of the main Superman writers of the Silver Age (including most of the early issues of JIMMY OLSEN).
