Captain Marvel Jr. was one of my favorite heroes when I was much younger. His deal was that he was injured by debris in the middle of a fight between Captain Marvel and Captain Nazi (seriously. This was 1941, mind). Cap was able to get him to the hospital in time to save his life by granting him a portion of his own magical superpower, but was too late to prevent him from going lame in his left leg, permanently requiring crutches to walk in his human form. Captain Marvel, Jr, of course, was ablebodied.
So yeah, as kind of a sickly little kid, I latched onto this idea that you could say a magic word and be healthy and strong.

"I try to be patient. My parents always taught me to be tolerant of others. But if you mention this Justice League one more time I will fry you!”
Just to be clear, this is totally deserved.

"I know! Marvel Girl!”
You can tell that Freddy is a true-blue Marvel because he didn’t immediately come to the conclusion that dropping Risk was the best option. For everyone. I mean, it came to mind toward the end there, but that’s like blaming Jesus for resisting the third temptation.
It’s a good thing that explosion we caused didn’t end up killing any of us, right guys?
Phew. Okay. I’ve done the whole Marvel family. I can stop obsessing over it now.
Captain Marvel Jr. and Doctor Sivana!
