NPR asks why Captain Marvel isn't more famous?

Great article by Glen Weldon over on the NPR.com blog Monkey See about the history of the original Captain Marvel, his sad lack of public recognition in this day and age, and just why that might be.



Weldon echoes some thoughts I had on the subject a few years ago, so I was happy to read an article from such a right-thinking individual. The moment I see or hear a writer talk about how the Big Red Cheese is so very much like Superman, I know they're entirely wrong for the job.

(Yes, I know that opinion reeks of fantitlement, and no, I do not care.)
