Captain Marvel, Jr #37 (April 1946, "The Man Who Fell Up")

The Man Who Fell Up

Capt. Marvel Jr. is confronted with a moral dilemma in choosing to save "hundreds of lives" in the office building while allowing two criminals to be hurled to their deaths into space. While Cap Jr.'s quick decision was the right one, Freddy's smirk and parting comment, "I guess that's the last we'll ever hear of those thugs!" seems a little callus. Even thugs are human beings. Art by Bud Thompson. It should be noted that once again Thompson apparently was obligated to use photostats or tracings of Mac Raboy drawings of Captain Marvel Jr. This would change in later years.
