"The original Phantom Eagle was a Fawcett hero, a costumed young aviator who appeared in Wow Comics. He debuted a few months before Airboy. Marvel's hero wasn't a close copy, but was visually close enough that I've no…"
"My understanding is the ending of Captain Marvel #16 was done to set up the new version of the feature established in #17. By implication, the decision to put Rick into Captain Marvel had been taken by the time #16 came out, but not too much…"
