Notes

  • In The Plague of Lies, Virgil Klance's Prevaricator Ray changes human physiology, making people unable to tell the truth. The device also has a reverse setting. At the end of this adventure, Captain Marvel has confiscated the only known prototype of this machine, but its demented inventor is still alive and at large.
  • In The Laughing Peril, the antidote to Booster Beale's extremely potent laughing gas is tear gas. Like Klance, Beale is still at liberty at the end of this adventure, after idiotically endangering thousands.
  • At the end of The Menace of the Moon, Professor Dyke also gets the same break that Klance and Beale got, despite recklessly endangering the entire population of Earth. He's not only alive and free but still has his rocket ship and his planet-breaking ray projectors.
  • Also featured in this issue of Captain Marvel Adventures were:
    • Dopey Danny Dee: "No Picnic!" by George Marko
