Ideal's Captain Action Mini-Comic, Part 2

Part 1 here.

Click on any image to enlarge.

Is it just me, or do none of these folks in the next panel look trust-worthy?

Why don't superheroes give bystanders guns and knives anymore? Oh, look, apparently he had a pistol left over. Unfortunately, Captain America wasn't accustomed to using a gun. I suppose it explains why he misses shooting the alien directly in the crotch.

Isn't giving Aquaman flippers a bit like giving Superman a bullet-proof vest?

Concluded in Part 3 with Spider-Man and Action Boy!

Wow. Steve Canyon. Can't wait to see the transformation into Mary Worth so he can deal with all the psychological agony of citizens packing heat

So, Captain Action needs a parachute unless he's wearing the Superman outfit, which apparently gives him the power of flight at least if not all of Superman's powers? Is that the suit that ends up in that one issue of Kamandi?

And in the universe in which the Aquaman suit comes with flippers, it makes perfect sense to have the Captain America outfit come with a gun.

Speaking of what Captain Action outfits come with, what comes with the John Holmes outfit?

Why, Mrs. Captain Action does.

I consider that Kamandi issue Kirby's finest this-story-makes-sense moment.
