    I have the first issue of the MF Enterprises Captain Marvel! He fights a guy called 'Plastic Man', who is equally dissimilar to the original. A nice little oddity.

      Back in 1990, Kitchen Sink Press mentioned it in issue #2 of the World's Worst Comics Awards
      ( http://themagicrobot.wordpress.com/c...-worst-comics/ ), as a runner up for Worst Series.

      Rather amusingly, the winner of this particular Woo-Woo was....(wait for it)...Jack Kirby's Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers! Now where have I heard of that title before..?

        Tony and Tulku,

        Thanks for the replies guys.

        Not too many of us are left that remember the Split/XAM Captain Marvel or even have any copies of it so you are lucky indeed!

        I dunno if you checked the CM link in my original post, but here is a link to the entire site. There's some AWESOME stuff there, ESPECIALLY his Jack Kirby tribute, montage, and trip with METRON tracing Jack's many mind blowing creations and his place in the history of comics..

          Just clicked the link. That is an amazing site-thanks, Old Superman!

          Why is it that your name always makes me think of Retired Man from Legends of the Super-Heroes?

            Yeah, I had those too at one time. Don't know if I still do. Haven't looked at them in years (with good reason). An interesting curiosity whose major effect was to cause Martin Goodman to direct Stan Lee to create a Captain Marvel title (the Kree spaceman Mar-Vell) for Marvel to secure the trademark, later preventing DC from using the name in a comic book title when they brought the original back in SHAZAM!

              Captain Marvel's split!!

              THAT Captain Marvel was one book I put right back on the rack. I "split". And shook my hand to rid myself of touching it. Yikes.!! I thought it was REALLY terrible.
              I did pick up those issues of the "bad" Mighty Crusaders, though. I was a sucker for the MLJ heroes. Still am. They have returned (in the back of The New Crusaders book).

                TONY, thanks for the reply.

                I didn't read or collect Legends of the Super-Heroes. I did read and collect the LEGENDS series that DC published.

                But I do hope Retired Man was a good guy 'cause I'm a good guy too.

                  NOBODY "read or collect(ed)" Legends of the Superheroes. It was a pair of live-action TV specials produced by Hanna-Barbera in 1979 (and Adam West & Burt Ward's last official appearance as Batman & Robin). You should be old enough to remember this, but click on the link for further elucidation.

                    OMG Yes! I do remember that TV fiasco. When I viewed then as a kid I was disappointed. Now as an adult, its just plain fun to see it again.

                        Ahhhh my boy my boy! You forget those were originally produced in 1979. I was around 28 I think.

                        Too much drug abuse or Kryptonite has affected my memory.

                        "Can't move....kryptonite sapping my strength....wait....here come Krypto with a lead pipe in his mouth....GOOD BOY KRYPTO!"

                        "ARF ARF!"

                        When you are an old fart of 61 like I am, ANY age under 40 is considered and accepted as being a kid!

                          No, I remember them quite well. I believe they were on TV on a Thursday, actually. LOL! In my case I was 12... (45 now.)

                          Ah, 61. Well, that's older, at least. My own relationship to time and age is a tad odd, but then I'm odd in general.

                            You sound like a really good guy and I appreciate your replies to my posts. Thank you so much!

                            This is a GREAT forum! There are not too many comic forums left that can have the fun and share all the great comic info that we do here.

                            Welcome to the future my friend. With guys like you I have no doubt it is in good hands.

                              Maybe nobody was wondering, but... YES, it is available on DVD (Region 1 only, sorry!)
