Synopsis for "Captain Marvel's Wedding"

An evil witch, Theo Hagge, is doing away with employees of the Kleensweep Broom Company, one by one. (She's stashing them in a cave where she has a secret flying-broom factory, in support of her planned upcoming wave of witchery.) Billy Batson finds out about the abductions, and Captain Marvel investigates, just in time to rescue one abducted employee. The witch flees to a remote shack in the countryside, but when Captain Marvel gets there he finds only the pretty young receptionist from the broom factory, tied up and anxious to escape from there. She's afraid to go home, so Marvel carries her to Mrs. Wagner's Boarding House, where his landlady agrees to rent the girl a room right next to Billy Batson's. When the clock starts to strike midnight, the new tenant abruptly shoos both of them out of the room. No sooner are they gone than her true for becomes visible; this is the cackling old witch herself, and she has a plan for dealing with Captain Marvel (whom all witches hate and fear)!

The next evening, Captain Marvel invites the receptionist to attend a play, and she becomes overly romantic towards him, to Marvel's annoyance. This goes on for several more evenings, at cafes and concerts and night clubs, until reports of this seeming romance appear in the newspaper gossip columns. Marvel decides to publicly squelch the rumors on WHIZ, but when he reaches Mr. Morris' office, the receptionist is there ahead of him, having just finalized an arrangement with Morris to televize their upcoming nuptials. Captain Marvel is in a bind! He doesn't want to be a cad or a boor, so he fears he may have to go thru with the wedding!

That night the World's Mightiest Mortal wanders the streets in a daze. Suddenly overhead he spots a witch on a broomstick, flinging a young girl to her death! One flying rescue later, the girl (a stranger) is rescued, and is quite upset that "the old hag is escaping!" Marvel mis-hears this as "Theo Hagge" is escaping, which just so happens to be the name of his new accidental fiancee. Marvel is befuddled, but Billy has figured out what's going on, and he says Marvel is a big dope! He then sets up a ruse to reveal that Miss Hagge is actually the gnarled witch, who assumes her true form every midnight. He resets the clock in her room to run one hour early, then visits Theo and plays checkers with her until eleven o'clock, which turns out to be twelve o'clock. The witch reappears, but now she has the upper hand! She knocks Billy unconscious and he doesn't wake up until wedding day morning.

At the broadcasting studio, Mr. Morris is directing the caterers and florists and musicians and staff to set up the big and splendid wedding, and wondering where Captain Marvel is. Marvel simply stays away until shortly before the next midnight, and times his arrival so that halfway thru the wedding ceremony, lovely young Theo pops back into her hideous old witch form, in front of lots of witnesses. Thus Captain Marvel can back out of the wedding and not be a heel.

Soon the scheming witch has been taken away by police, and Billy explains to his radio audience what she really was up to.

Notes

  • Final issue.
  • In Chapter One: "I Conquer Africa", Sivana discovers a new radioactive mineral, and names it Sivanium, but this is not the same "Living Metal" that he had synthesized back in Captain Marvel Adventures #100.
  • Sivana's Sivanium-powered Molecular Rearranger had the effect of changing people's heads into duplicates of Sivana's head, including his evil Sivana brain.
  • Sivana's Marvel Machine redirected SHAZAM's magic lightning bolt through Sivana's Molecular Rearranger, which thus became also effective on Captain Marvel.
  • Also appearing in this issue of Captain Marvel Adventures were:
    • Doc Sorebones: "Wear Pumps!"
    • Dopey Danny Dee: "Washed Up!"
    • "Interplanetary Jailbreak" (text story, featuring Jon Jarl) by Eando Binder
    • Judge Smudge: "Dead Duck!"
    • Tightwad Tad: "Junior's Glasses"
