#2 (#1); C.C. Beck cvr/art; origin & 1st app. Captain Marvel
It's hard to imagine now, but for about a decade, Superman's most fearsome nemesis was not Lex Luthor or the Toyman, but the Big Red Cheese, Captain Marvel. His colossal popularity and mammoth sales eclipsed even the Man of Steel's as he moved as many as five million copies per issue. DC gathered an army of lawyers to pummel Fawcett and eventually drove them out of the funny book business as court costs skyrocketed just when sales began to lag. It's no surprise that DC would raise an eyebrow at the Captain when you see the Action #1-inspired cover of this first appearance. It's in the pages within, however, that C.C. Beck and Billy Parker put their immortal spin on the new superhero mythology, as young orphan, Billy Batson, imbued the story with an unexpected poignancy. The moody, mysterious origin tale, with unfathomable caves, ancient gods, and atmospheric visuals set this series apart from all others of the day. Rich and detailed, instantly appealing, and perfectly tailored to its troubled times, Fawcett's family of Marvels remains a literary triumph and comics cornerstone.
