Notes

  • Captain Marvel: Ezra Steele destroyed his written copy of the formula for his Wonder Alloy, but he's the inventor, so he could just as easily reformulate it. And if not, three very large samples of the metal exist, so it could still be reproduced.
  • Golden Arrow: This story takes place during the brief time in history when the Pony Express was in business, so either 1860 or 1861.
  • Also appearing in this issue of Whiz Comics were:
    • Spud and Jud: "Gold Goofs"
