Captain Marvel Jr. Ski Jump Punch-Out Kit


Captain Marvel Jr. first zapped into our lives in December 1941. He’s the sidekick to Captain Marvel (also known as Shazam) and was introduced by Fawcett Comics.

Unlike his elder, Junior remains a teenage boy and does not grow up when transformed into a superhero.

Captain Marvel Jr was a big hit with young boys and caught the imagination of one young fan in particular – Elvis Presley.
In fact, the King’s Captain Marvel Jr. comic book collection still resides at Graceland!

Soon after his appearance in a comic book, Fawcett made sure toys of Captain Marvel Jr. hit the shelfs.
One of the items was this Ski Jump action cut-out.

I wonder if Elvis once owned an item like this?
