Captain Marvel Jr #86 (The Defender of Time) June 1950

The Defender of Time

This story is one that shows that even a good cause—"the productive use of time" can be perverted by a person who has been mentally traumatized. This is one of those CapJr yarns where the "moral of the story" drives the tale. It is almost as if the editors decided they needed to teach their readers about the proper use of time by exaggerating the point. The victims in the end get the point, "Even if you didn't mean to, you've taught us a valuable lesson! It is wrong to kill time! Why, time is what our whole lives are made of!"  Art by Joe Certa.

  1. So Father Time would be proud that his protege tried to kill people with a bomb, a noose, and a scythe? I think not!
