rating: 3 out of 5 stars
My exposure to Captain Universe has been infinitesimal, limited to an issue of What If and some ads. I know that he wields the uni-power and the power jumps to a different person in every story. Thanks to Marvel Unlimited, I'm able to read one of Captain Universe's early appearances.
This was a pretty average story, livened up by some pretty spectacular art by Steve Ditko. Captain Universe' power seems limited only by the wielder's imagination, kind of like Green Lantern. I could see Marvel utilizing him like Doctor Who, overhauling the character with each story arc to suit whomever is writing him.
Anyway, this story was visually amazing but did not stand the test of time. Three out of five stars.
