Captain Marvel Jr #72 (The Boy Scientist) April 1949

The Boy Scientist

This is a fun story without criminals (almost) or world conquering villains, but with a little boy whose  good sense is far outstripped by his inventive genius. CMJ admits, "That kid gives me an inferiority complex!" and "Can't that boy scientist invent anything but dangerous gadgets!  I'll be a nervous wreck if he keeps it up!" Junior plays nurse maid to the boy and tries to reason with him as well as rescuing the lad from his own follies. Art by Joe Certa.
