What The--?! #15 (4th story)

WHAT THE--?! #15 (November 1991)
4th Story:
By Scott Lobdell & Dennis Jensen

Captain Ultra (Griffin Gogol), Counselor in Chief, camp kids & counselor

Griffin Gogol performs stand-up comedy for kids at a summer camp (due to a booking mix-up), but suddenly everyone wanders off. Gogol realizes someone is trying to control his mind and his Captain Ultra powers are triggered. He learns that the Counselor in Chief has been subliminally preparing the kids to be his army, and he’s ready to attack. Captain Ultra defeats the Counselor in Chief (accidentally) and he gains a bunch of fans (who had never previously heard of Captain Ultra).

An editor’s note points us to Marvel Comics Presents #50, Captain Ultra’s previous appearance. This is a fairly standard story (meaning, not cartoonish and silly like most other things in What The--?!) that seems like it was intended for Marvel Comics Presents. Heck, it’s even eight pages like most MCP stories. I don’t see any reason why this isn’t 616, and the editor’s note gives me reason to think it is.

Placement suggestions:

T 336
M/CP 50/3
*WT? 15/4
M/HOL 1991/7

WT? 15/4

The handbooks have referenced this as a 616 story, so that should settle the matter. :)
