The Superman & Captain Marvel Power Hour Ep 007 - Minneapolis Mystery & Rebirth Discussion

Welcome to the 7th episode of the Superman & Captain Marvel Power Hour Podcast, the podcast devoted to exploring the publishing history & adventures of both the Last Son of Krypton and the World’s Mightiest Mortal. This time out I take a look at the Golden Age Captain Marvel story "The Minneapolis Mystery" from 1943's Captain Marvel Adventures #24 as well as discuss my thoughts on Superman's treatment thus far in the post-Rebirth era of DC Comics. It's a little something old and a little something new, but coverage on both characters nonetheless!
