Adventures of Captain Marvel: The Guillotine (Chapter 2)

Please choose a format above.

Things got off to a Shazammy start with Chapter 1, the one where Captain Marvel uses his new superpowers to… shoot a bunch of guys in the back with a machine gun. Look, it was the '40s, they were still figuring out the whole superhero thing.

Now, with Adventures of Captain Marvel: The Guillotine, the second installment of this classic serial, things really start heating up. One of the powerful lenses raided from an ancient tomb in Chapter 1 has been subsequently raided again by one of the guys who raided it. But which guy? He, the masked supervillain, naturally works with a bunch of old-timey gangsters to get the rest of the lenses. And for some reason, they’ve constructed an electric “guillotine” contraption so overly complicated even Rube Goldberg would blush.

But the most shocking reveal of all? Squeaky-voiced Billy Batson has a radio show!

Oh, and there’s also some Captain Marvel stuff. Join Mike, Bill, and Kevin as they wonder “When will Gabe show up?” and enjoy Adventures of Captain Marvel: The Guillotine!
