Captain Marvel

It's been some time since Captain Marvel visited our pages, so this 1941 story posted on Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine seemed appropriate.  I never was much of a CM fan myself, as I never could figure out where he stood versus Superman.  Most of my exposure to the character was the 1970's Saturday morning live-action TV show.
