Captain Marvel #51 (July 1977)

A lot of the fun of fooling around in the Marvel playground is getting to bring back characters that haven’t been seen in years, and in my third issue of Captain Marvel I brought back a few characters who … well … now that I look at it, maybe they shouldn’t have been brought back at all.

I’m not talking about the 4-D Man, who’d last been seen in an issue of Thor four years previously, because he made a decent adversary, but rather the Teen Brigade, friends of Rick Jones who hadn’t been seen since the earliest issues of Hulk and The Avengers. Did we really need to see them again?

What can I say? It seemed like a good idea at the time.
