Golden Age Christmas – Captain Marvel Fights a Plot Against Christmas!
Welcome to the latest edition of Golden Age Christmas, where we will feature a different Golden Age Christmas comic book story every day from now until Christmas Eve!
Today we look at a 1945 Captain Marvel Adventures story about Captain Marvel fighting a plot against Christmas!
I dunno who wrote this story, but the art was likely by Pete Costanza.
The story is another pretty straightforward Scrooge-type story.
A bad guy named Groucho Smith won’t let his brother Jolly give away toys for kids. Not only that, but Groucho doesn’t even seem to care that his brother almost dies during their argument…
So Captain Marvel pulls a “Ghost of Christmas Present” on him…
And eventually it pays off…
This plot was EXTREMELY straightforward. Too straightforward, I think, really. Nice art, though!
