The Superman & Captain Marvel Power Hour Ep 002 - Golden Age Origins

Welcome to the second 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. I am your host Kyle Benning, and thank you for joining me on this journey to explore the evolution of my 2 favorite DC Characters, Superman & Captain Marvel. This time out, I tackle the Golden Age origin stories of both characters, taking a look at Superman’s enhanced, more fleshed out origin as it was retold in Superman #1 from May 1939, and Captain Marvel’s origin from Whiz Comics #2 that went on sale in December 1939.
