This story presents a couple of re-occurring themes with Sivana Jr stories. One is his promises (which are never kept) of reform. The other is his ability as a master chemist to concoct solutions that cause chaos and havoc as distractions for his criminal endeavors. We see this in his first Captain Marvel Jr appearance in Captain Marvel Jr #36 ("CMJ Battles Sivana Jr") where he produces "Jitterbug" pills that cause teenagers to engage in non-stop dancing. This time it is an aging potion that disables his adversaries by making them too old to resist. He gets a dose of his own medicine in the end administered by the Blue Boy. Art is by Bud Thompson.
