Tuesday Team-Up: Sub-Mariner and Captain Marvel

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Here's another mighty mis-match between two significantly strident super-heroes for your pulse-pounding pleasure! Namor, the savage Sub-Mariner and the Kree-born Captain Marvel don't get along swimmingly, but they do make a mighty pair of baddie-battlers. This story is particularly interesting to us Captain Marvel fans, as it occurs between the final issue of the Good Captain's own mag and the beginning of the Kree/Skrull War in Avengers #89. Written by Rascally Roy Thomas and drawn by Our Pal Sal Buscema, here's a true fave, baby! From Sub-Mariner #30 (July 1970), here's "Calling Captain Marvel"!


  1. Holy Moley!
    OOPS! Wrong CM! This is my favorite series Sal Buscema drew, beside's his Avengers. His art was inked really well in his too short stint on old Subby. I was & still am a huge Sub-Mariner fan!I especially loved Sub-Mariner #34 &#35 the first teaming up of the Defenders VS The Avengers no less!

    Sal's Subby VS Hercules was another favorite of mine. Hey Groovy one, how about a Hercules week or Olympians/Asgardians week? You could even thrown in DC Comics Hercules Unbound series maybe.

  2. Hmmmm, not a bad idea there, Mike! Not a bad idea at all...

  3. JJAAAAA Groovster!
    I'm glad you liked my suggestion. If you decide to do it. I'd love to help do a few articles/reviews for it.Especially on Marvel's Hercules! For Asgard! UUmmm wait, that's not right! For Zeus!

  4. Awwwwesome! This may be the only the only piece of THE Marvel himself, Captain Marvel, Mar-Vell, that I don't have! Thank you for posting this! :) Should start a petition to get him in the movies, the character was always made for the screen!
