Captain Kid was a recurring featurette in Captain Marvel Adventures which chronicled the adventures (or rather missadventures) of a costumed lad who protected his town of Swatsville in Podunk from threats both pedestrian and potent. But mostly the former. Another red haired teen titan, Al Pratt, adopted a similar skimpy outfit and cape whle assuming the identity of the Atom. Neither aspiring hero had superpowers when they began their careers though Al later gained superstrength while Kid retired in his late teens to capture the attention of Betty Mae. Pratt himself had a longterm courtship with Mary James, although like Betty their affection was fickle depending on whether their boyfriends stood up to bullies and the like, which both Al and Kid feigned fear towards (okay, only Al did this, the Kid really was the anxious sort). Nevertheless, these costumed crusaders proved that even with diminutive bodies they had gigantic egos allowing them to best even the bitterest of bad guys!
