One of the themes running through a number of later Captain Marvel Jr stories was the silliness of superstition. Perhaps the irony lost on many young readers was a magic-based hero railing against superstition. The villain in this story uses the ability of "jinxes" to come "true" as a scam devise to defraud the wealthy Mr. Crenshaw of his property. It seems as if Mr. Jenks went to a lot of trouble (even with homicidal intent) to collect junk even "jinxed junk" worth thousands!" Art by Joe Certa.
