Captain Marvel Junior

This Captain Marvel Junior comic book was published in 1947. The character actually first appeared in 1941. He was actually a spin off of the Captain Marvel superhero in that he turned into Captain Marvel but as a teenage boy.

He also said "Captain Marvel" to transform instead of saying "Shazam".

Fritzi Ritz

Fritzi Ritz started out as a somewhat shallow figure who mainly thought about men and clothes and money. Eventually she became a down to earth woman when Nancy came along. Nancy started out as a house guest but somewhere along the line Fritzi was Nancy's aunt. I'm speaking of  Nancy from the Nancy and Sluggo comic.

I always liked this cartoon but don't you even think I'm that old. :-) Fritzi got her start in 1922. Sh was still going strong in the funnies in the 60's.
