This doesn't disprove either theory about Captain Marvel. It's just the oldest reference I could find. How Comics Are Made by Robert Arthur originally printed in Spot magazine 1942.

I was talking about the Marvel Comics Captain Marvel, you racist.
And Monica is >>> than Mar-Vell (who is pretty much Barry Allen - death was the biggest character development he ever got :lol: )

O.G. Captain Marvel / Big Red Cheese = the best, too bad DC owns him

14 years old? I always thought Billy Batson was 12.

For Billy Batson, younger is better.

Ah, well, I think DC always portrayed him as being 12. At 14 he should at least be slightly interested in girls... and other stuff.
