In this comic book, a mysterious stranger named column Captain Marvel, who used the identity of a superhero, was suddenly afflicted by an illness. When his friends tried to save him, he transformed into a superhero and flew off. The others soon caught up with him and caught him as the criminal Captain Marvel. They brought him to the Savage Land, a place where only those who have been transformed into a superhero are allowed to live. There, they also made him the leader of their gang while battling villains. He then went on to fight the evil villain, Doctor Voodoo and fought against the Monster, who sought to kill the Marvel family.

Following several issues in which he became the most wanted man in the world, a mysterious jewel called the Diamond Stone came into existence, near the Savage Land. Through the use of magic, the Diamond Stone transformed Captain Marvel into a superhero known as Captain Marvel. After defeating the evil villain Braincase, the Earth was erased from the universe, and the Marvel Family returned home. Though the super hero’s comic book history is scarce, much about this period is known, especially through the numerous trades for this comic book.
