So this one time an incognito Shazam had Mr. Mind in his ear and Captain Marvel could only get him out with the power of ROCK!

From The Power of Shazam! #18, cover date July 1996, written by Jerry Ordway, pencils by Mike Manley.

And oh yeah, Captain Marvel was wearing a space suit at the time. Because he just got back from Venus, where he was forced to team up with Dr. Sivana (whose own space suit looked like the Mark I Iron Man armor) to stop an invasion of Earth from Mr. Mind's entire species.

I fucking love comics, you guys.

(Incidentally, if anyone out there knows where this original page is, I'd love to own it for real. The reasons should be obvious.)
