Captain Marvel is the name of several fictional superheroes appearing in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Most of these versions exist in Marvel's main shared universe, known as the Marvel Universe.


Publication history

Following a trial in which DC Comics sued Fawcett Comics for breach of copyright, the latter stopped publishing Captain Marvel.[2] In the late sixties Marvel gained the trademark "Captain Marvel" with their first series, forcing DC to call their Captain Marvel comic book Shazam!, but to retain the trademark Marvel had to publish a Captain Marvel title every year or two since leading to a number of ongoing series, limited series and one-shots featuring a range of characters using the Captain Marvel alias.[3]
