Danger Across the Tracks
The issues of luck and coincidence plays a strong role in this story. At the beginning of the story while rescuing the two small boys from fallng, CMJ thinks, "It's a lucky thing Freddy was visiting this part of town, or I would never have been around to help!" One of the boys says, "Gosh, we're sure lucky you were around Captain Marvel Jr! If it weren't for you, we'd have been killed! Thanks!" This is also an example of a "social justice" story. Freddy concludes by giving the moral of the story (referring to property owner Tim Dwight), "I'm glad to see he's learned that there is more to life than making big profits! Being a good citizen and helping those less fortunate than yourself brings real joy!" Art by Joe Certa.
