Captain Marvel...Sort Of
Time to talk about Captain Marvel. Not the the DC one nor any of the Marvel Comic versions. I am talking about the Captain Marvel of M. F. Enterprises. He was made when Captain Marvel wasn't being published.
He is alien robot from another planet. He went to Earth when his planet exploded. He became the superhero Captain Marvel. He befriended a young Bill Baxton (sound like Billy Batson doesn't it?)
Despite being able to "fly, shoot lasers from his eyes, deflect bullets, and emit eletrical shocks", his most notable power was the fact by saying "Split" he could shoot off his limb and reattach them when he said "Xam" (I'm not joking nor were they). The character had only a handful of appearances.
