(p.152) Epilogue
Captain Marvel and the Art of Nostalgia

Brian Cremins

University Press of Mississippi

The epilogue returns to Captain Marvel’s first appearance and studies the debt it owes to James Hilton’s novel Lost Horizon. This section also examines the hero’s impact on science fiction writer Harlan Ellison, whose story “Paladin of the Lost Hour” offers a variation on both Lost Horizon and Billy Batson’s origin story.

Keywords:   Captain Marvel, Comic books and science fiction, Harlan Ellison, James Hilton’s Lost Horizon, “Paladin of the Lost Hour”
