Captain Marvel was a jet-booted and laser-eyed alien android powered by an “M”-emblemed medallion who had been sent to Earth by his creators to escape the atomic destruction of their war-ravaged planet. He possessed a durable android body with several powers and he also had a super-intelligent computer brain programmed with the scientific knowledge of two worlds. With this amazing brain, he could alter his internal mechanisms to do anything from breathe underwater to travel through time.

Vowing to protect the peace of his new home, the self-proclaimed “Human Robot” took the secret identity of journalist turned Dartmoor University professor Roger Winkle in the city of Riverview, USA where he lived with his young ward Billy Baxton, the first person he met when he arrived on Earth and the only one who knew his true origins.

Captain Marvel is a whole lot of copyright infringement concerns, all wrapped up in the story of a magical robot from outer space. Not only is CM’s own name problematic but he lives with Billy Batson — oops! I mean Billy Baxton! He also fights villains with names like Plastic Man, Dr. Fate, and Prof. Doom.


He had a ladyfriend by the name of Linda Knowles but Cap was always afraid that he wasn’t worthy of her love since he was actually a mechanical being.

Still, there’s some fun possibilities with him so go ahead and drop him into your campaigns ASAP!
