Captain Marvin

ALIASES: Wotta “Wott” Lawsuit
IDENTITY: Secret on Earth; known to the Kreep government
OCCUPATION: Astronaut, spy, nuclear physicist
CITIZENSHIP: Kreeps, Reality-665
PLACE OF BIRTH: Unrevealed; presumably Kreeps’ homeworld, Reality-665
GROUP AFFILIATION: Unidentified team of Kreeps under Colonel Egg-Nogg’s command
EDUCATION: Apparently Kreep military training including combat and nuclear physics
FIRST APPEARANCE: Not Brand Echh#9 (1968)

Kreep Captain Mar-Vinn, under the command of Colonel Egg-Nogg, arrived on Earth on a top secret mission to obtain scrap metal. Under unrevealed circumstances he took on the heroic identity of Captain Marvin. He also usurped the identity of nuclear physicist, Wotta Lawsuit, who had been killed in a ferryboat collision at Fort Mudge. After spotting a Scent-ry (a Kreep robot) he contacted Egg-Nogg, admitting he could no longer recall his mission. Egg-Nogg declined to remind him, claiming he wished to keep his own mind uncluttered to deal with other matters (more likely it was because Egg-Nogg wanted to pursue a romance with Mar-Vinn's girlfriend Uno-Who, who was with Egg-Nogg on board the mothership). Mar-Vinn located the only phone booth in the county and changed back to Lawsuit, a process that took a couple of hours. As Lawsuit, he arrived at the military base the Cape, aka the C*p* for the first time, where he was briefly interrogated by security head Clairol Dandruff. This interrogation was interrupted by the now rampaging Scent-ry, and Mar-Vinn dashed back to the phone booth and, apparently much more quickly, changed back to Captain Marvin to deal with the robot. During the fight he placed a long distance phone call (this time using the phone from the phone booth) to Egg-Nogg, asking what the robot's weaknesses were; Egg-Nogg claimed he didn't think the robot had any. Remembering his ultimate weapon, Mar-Vinn, projected home movies, which horrified the Scent-ry but compelled it to watch them anyway. Mar-Vinn recalled his mission and proceeded to dismantle the Scent-ry.

HEIGHT: 6’2” EYES: Blue
WEIGHT: 220 lbs. HAIR: Silver

Mar-Vinn has demonstrated superhuman strength, speed (fast enough to keep just ahead of a giant robot), and durability. He has oversized binoculars, a wrist communicator which he uses to contact his mothership (but which also picks up radio signals from other sources and apparently requires money to use), a boot that can trip giant-sized beings (the boot resembles an ordinary boot but Mar-Vinn claims it is in fact a weapon), a screwdriver-like device, a shovel, and an “ultimate weapon” that plays home movies. He carries additional equipment whose purpose is as yet unrevealed. He keeps his equipment and change of clothes in a large sack; it’s possible that this sack shrinks some items when not in use to fit inside the sack. His spacesuit has a badge whose text is constantly changing.

Re: Captain Marvin

The above was originally created for the Amateur Submissions thread. It didn't get any feedback other than a naming error so otherwise submitting it as originally presented. As per the post from: Mar 20, 2011

I used the version found in Essential Captain Marvel v1, which was in B&W. I couldn't find a colour copy of the story and so had to make an educated guess on his eye and hair colour based on Mar-Vell at the time. Given that he seems to have some knowledge of nuclear physics I considered the possibility of increasing his intelligence on the grounds that he had amnesia, but he never actually applied his nuclear physics knowledge in the story and forgot at least one other thing briefly (his ultimate weapon). Plus he claimed to have used his last dime on his wrist communicator and yet later found money to use a pay phone to phone the spaceship. Plus nearly everyone in that reality is pretty stupid. So on the balance I determined that his memory loss was the result of low intelligence and not amnesia.
