Captain Marvel Dc The life and death of Mar-Vell VideoCaptain Marvel! Good job!
The uncle suggested theft, but Billy instead sold pencils. Whatever value Billy brought home, Ebenezer whipped him. Uncle Eben eventually kicked him out of the house.
When Billy was on the street, suffered from hypothermia and starvation and was brought to a hospital. When he recovered his health, Billy discovered that his uncle had fled with an inheritance that was destined for him.
By , Billy had managed to secure himself a part-time job as a newsboy. One evening as Billy was hawking newspapers, a strange shadowy man in a long coat approached him.
He beckoned Billy to follow him, and led him underground into a dilapidated subway station. A driverless subway car unlike any Billy had ever seen before, roared to the platform and the two got on board.
The car sped off deeper underground, bringing them to a vast cavern known as the Rock of Eternity. Billy disembarked and both the subway train and the cloaked stranger disappeared.
Before him Billy saw two rows of statues lining each side of the cavern. Each statue was forged in the likeness of a horrific monster, representing the Seven Deadly Enemies of Man.
At the anterior of the cavern, he found an old man with a flowing white beard sitting on a stone throne.
Above him was a large boulder suspended from the ceiling of the cavern by a tiny, fraying thread. The old man introduced himself as a wizard named Shazam , and told Billy that he had been chosen to be his champion against injustice.
The wizard lit a brazier to the left of the throne, illuminating the names of six mythological elders inscribed on the wall behind it; Solomon , Hercules , Atlas , Zeus , Achilles and Mercury.
He explained that each of these elders would bestow an aspect of their power unto Billy, and all the boy had to do to acquire such power was to speak the wizard's name.
Billy spoke the name "Shazam", and a bolt of mystic lightning struck down from nowhere transforming the twelve-year-old boy  into a powerful, muscle-bound man.
Shazam christened his new champion as Captain Marvel and saluted him. Moments after the startling transformation, the thread securing the boulder above Shazam's head snapped, and the rock came down, crushing the wizard.
Shazam's spirit rose from the debris and told Billy that his ghost would always be present inside the Rock of Eternity, should the neophyte hero ever need his guidance.
Throughout his adventures, Captain Marvel had fought a host of villains. These included mad scientist Dr. The role of Captain Marvel would be filled by many heroes over subsequent years, most notably by the Kree warrior Mar-Vell and U.
Air Force officer Carol Danvers. The first comic strip character with the name Captain Marvel appeared in late in Whiz Comics no.
Writer Bill Parker and artist C. Captain Marvel would eventually rival and even surpass Superman in popularity, and DC changed their hero accordingly.
Not content to play catch-up, DC filed suit against Fawcett for copyright infringement. The legal battle over Captain Marvel dragged on for more than a decade, and, with the sales of superhero comics sharply declining in the early s, Fawcett opted to settle the suit and cease publication of Captain Marvel books.
The Captain Marvel name lay dormant until February , when pulp magazine magnate Myron Fass published Captain Marvel , a title widely regarded as one of the worst comic books ever written.
It seems obvious that he was hoping to claim the trademark and exploit any perceived connection with the Marvel brand.
Captain Marvel disappeared from newsstands after just a handful of issues, and Marvel Comics, recognizing that low-quality imitators could do lasting damage to their brand, moved to secure the Captain Marvel name.
Marvel went ahead with plans to introduce their own character, and in October Captain Marvel appeared on the cover of Marvel Super-Heroes no.
Chief among this group was Ronan the Accuser, a hammer-wielding defender of the doctrine of Kree racial superiority and military supremacy and a recurring antagonist for Mar-Vell.
Mar-Vell had initially possessed few notable superhuman abilities, but he was given greatly enhanced strength and endurance as well as the power of flight.
The costume that debuted in Captain Marvel no. After becoming trapped in an extradimensional limbo known as the Negative Zone, Mar-Vell learned that he could free himself by trading bodies with Rick Jones, a teenager who had a long association with the Incredible Hulk and the Avengers.
Fans greeted these changes with indifference, and mediocre sales kept Captain Marvel on the verge of cancellation. Jim Starlin breathed new life into the book when he joined Captain Marvel as lead artist on issue no.
He assumed writing duties over subsequent issues, and Starlin would do much to expand the cosmic Marvel Universe beyond the foundations laid by legendary comic creator Jack Kirby.
In spite of this focus on cosmic adventures, the biggest lasting change to Mar-Vell occurred as the result of a brush with a minor Earth supervillain called Nitro in Captain Marvel no.
Captain Marvel would continue under a variety of writers through the s until the series was cancelled with issue no. Carol Danvers made her first appearance in Marvel Super-Heroes no.
These developments were not revealed for the better part of a decade, however, as Danvers ceased to be a regular presence in the Captain Marvel series.
With the second wave of feminism cresting in the s and DC icon Wonder Woman appearing on the cover of the debut issue of Ms. The first issue of Ms.
Marvel January saw Danvers, now sporting a distinctive Farrah Fawcett hairdo, travel to New York City to begin a career as a journalist for Woman , a magazine published by Spider-Man antagonist J.
Jonah Jameson. In these early appearances, Danvers and Ms. Marvel were essentially separate individuals, and Danvers experienced blackouts whenever she transformed into her superheroic persona.
With Ms. Marvel no. Claremont had used melodramatic soap opera conventions to great effect in X-Men , but similar strategies brought diminishing returns in Ms.
Each month, Danvers dealt with stress at work while Ms. Marvel struggled to defeat forgettable villains, and a rotating cast of artists meant that Ms.
Marvel never achieved a consistent look. A new costume was unveiled in Ms. In The Avengers no. Claremont recognized that this story was an enormous step backward for Ms.
Marvel as well as for the portrayal of women in comics, and, in The Avengers Annual no. Danvers, who had made her way back to Earth, was attacked by the power-stealing mutant Rogue, and she lost all of her memories as well as her Ms.
Marvel abilities. Claremont made Danvers into a blank slate. After recovering some of her memories, Danvers chastised the Avengers for allowing her to leave with Marcus while she was obviously under his mental control.
From this point, Claremont effectively asserted ownership of the character by having Danvers recuperate with the X-Men, a franchise that he oversaw for nearly two decades.
Danvers did not remain without superpowers for long. In The Uncanny X-Men no. Danvers became disenchanted with the X-Men after they admitted Rogue as a member, and she joined a band of spacefaring pirates called the Starjammers.
Her second tenure with the Avengers would prove almost as disastrous as the first, as Danvers struggled with alcoholism and her life spiraled out of control.
