Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941, William Witney and John English)By Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 26, 2017 From The Stop Button
About seventy percent of Adventures of Captain Marvel is narratively useless. Nothing occurring in chapters two through ten has an effect on how the story actually turns out. The serial has a great first chapter involving a tomb robbing archeological expedition in Thailand. Radio journalist Frank Co... Read full article
Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941, John English and William Witney), Chapter 12: Captain Marvel’s SecretBy Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 22, 2017 From The Stop Button
Captain Marvel?s Secret opens with yet another lackluster cliffhanger resolve. No reason to change it up at the end, apparently. The chapter has a lot to do in sixteen minutes. It?s got to reveal the evil Scorpion?s identity, stop the Scorpion?s evil plan, and maybe do something regarding Frank Cogh... Read full article
Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941, John English and William Witney), Chapter 11:By Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 21, 2017 From The Stop Button
Valley of Death is the penultimate chapter of Adventures of Captain Marvel. It?s in a rush to finish. The cliffhanger resolution is boring, though leads to some decent effects shots.

There?s nothing nice to say about Doom Ship?s opening cliffhanger resolution other than it?s short and leads into an energetic fight scene for Frank Coghlan Jr. More than ever, Coghlan?s got the wrong timing for turning into Tom Tyler?s Captain Marvel this chapter. Unlike the times when Coghlan?s be... Read full article
Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941, John English and William Witney), Chapter 9: Dead Man’s TrapBy Andrew Wickliffe on Nov 19, 2017 From The Stop Button
Dead Man?s Trap is, I guess, a bridging chapter. It depends on what?s next. Otherwise it?s a treading water chapter. It picks up from the previous chapter?s ?cliffhanger? (quotations because it?s more of a ?beware the cliff 150 meters away? than anything else) and gives George Pembroke quite a bit t... Read full article

[sound of a huge gong omninously echoes down the valley]
Billy Batson: What's that, Mr. Howell?
Howell [Ch. 1]: I don't know, Billy - let's find out. What do you make of that cymbal, Malcolm?
John Malcolm: I don't know, Howell. Does it mean anything to you, Tal Chotali?
Tal Chotali: The men of the hills are gathering. The cymbal says that the white men are to be driven from the Valley of Tombs.
[handing the Scroll of the Scorpion to Billy]
Tal Chotali: And Billy, this is for you to guard. Guard it well. It contains a precious... and a dangerous secret.
Tal Chotali: The chief warns us that no permit can protect us from the curse of the Scorpion if we enter the inner tomb.

The cast member under the Scorpion's hood, momentarily visible and identifiable when he is accidentally unmasked in one episode, is not the same actor who is eventually unmasked as the actual Scorpion in the final episode.
Superman was originally considered for this project, however, when National Periodical Publications (now known as DC Comics) turned Republic down, the producers made the offer to Fawcett Comics for their top character and was accepted.
