Here’s a humourous couple of pages from National Lampoons that were written by Denny O’ Neil and pencilled by Don Newton (layouts by C C Beck). This is a comment on the legal situation of Captain Marvel, whose comic book career was ended after he was sued by DC for being too similar to Superman (can’t say that I see the similarities myself!). For a period in the 1940s Captain Marvel was more popular than the man of steel.


By the mid-late 70s DC had acquired the rights to Captain Marvel.
