Adventures of Captain Marvel: Time Bomb (Chapter 3)

Please choose a format above.

Our story continues, which can mean only one thing: Captain Marvel somehow survived the electric guillotine in the previous chapter? But the ending led us to believe he’d perished! Surely the serial won’t pull anything like this on us again.

To refresh you: it’s all about lenses. And gangsters. And a mysterious villain named The Scorpion who wears a hood and also stole… a scorpion. But like, a statue of a scorpion. Which is also where the lenses came from. Billy Batson has a very high voice. So does his friend, Whitey. They all have fistfights and car chases, and just a general good time. Oh, and now and then some guy called Captain Marvel shows up.

Last episode’s big reveal: young Billy Batson hosts a major radio program. This episode? He’s also suddenly a pilot! With his own plane! If only he had the ability to fly in some other way. Especially since there may or may not be a Time Bomb hidden on his plane. You know, from the episode title!

Strap on a half-cape and soar with Mike, Kevin, Bill and Adventures of Captain Marvel - Chapter 3: Time Bomb!

Written by: Mike Nelson, Conor Lastowka, Sean Thomason, and Zach Shatzer
