Synopsis for "Capt. Marvel Jr.'s Nemesis"

One day as Fate is examining his card files, he notices an error: He has never gotten around to appointing anybody to be the Nemesis of Captain Marvel Junior. Fate resolves to correct this oversight at once. Meanwhile and elsewhere, big time international counterfeiter Black De John seemingly dies in a speedboat accident while attempting to flee from Captain Marvel Junior. Fate retrieves and revives this half-drowned felon, and puts him to work.

Captain Marvel Junior intimidates and interrogates his way thru Black De John's gangland associates, until he learns of a secret meeting of big time counterfeiters, and he crashes that meeting. While he is busting the attendees, Black De John shows up at the door with dark glasses and a flare gun. He blinds Cap Jr. with a magnesium flare, and leads the others in a successful escape. Still, it takes only a few seconds for Junior to shake off the effects, and he's quickly on their trail.

Out in the country, De John sends his cohorts ahead in their getaway car, while he stays behind to distract Marvel Junior. He walks halfway across a rope/plank footbridge, where Junior overtakes him, but as Fate would have it, at that moment the walkway breaks, sending a nearby young woman and child plunging into the canyon. True to form, Junior rescues them, while his "nemesis" stealthily escapes along a hidden rock ledge.

Soon Freddy Freeman learns, from his friend Jim Bellows, about a series of over a hundred truck thefts, with evidence connecting them to a counterfeiting racket. Freddie racks his brain to figure out what the big plan is, here. He hides in a Daily Gazette delivery truck, and hopes for it to get stolen. After a short nap, Freddy awakens to find that the truck's already been stolen, and that he's inadvertently infiltrated the gang's distribution operation. But before he can get Marveled up, one thug knocks him out with a blackjack. As soon as he's gagged and tied, De John gives the order to have him killed. But Freddy very luckily catches his gag on Black's gun muzzle and says his magic word, then Captain Marvel Junior subdues all the other crooks. He punches Black De John so hard that Fate visibly extracts himself from De John's form. Marvel Junior sees and recognizes him, and is pleased to hear that Fate has now completely given up on trying to develop a Nemesis for him.

Notes

  • According to Captain Marvel Junior: "Smoot devised some kind of spray that makes physical bodies react magnetically away from me. First I've got to learn what his formula is! Then I've got to discover an antidote! (...) The Smoot Formula requires tremendous amounts of the rare catalyst known as Hexydol!"
