People seem to be incredibly opinionated about any kind of thing happening to Captain Marvel or any of the Marvel family. Now, it’s been a long time since the guy’s salad days. Sure, in the 40’s he had the distinction of outselling Superman, but recently he hasn’t nearly been as successful.
In fact, the last successful thing he’s been in was a graphic novel that spawned a 49-issue series in the mid-to-late 90’s. Arguably, his sales wasn’t even that great even then. I might be wrong about this because I didn’t really care about the numbers then. Still don’t much care now.
So, I have to ask, why do people still like Captain Marvel? Why do people care?
That’s a question I sometimes ask myself.
