Major Terror (Evil Captain Marvel, Jr.)

Major Terror

(Evil version of Captain Marvel Jr.)


This character is an original creation. We often call these “homemades” or “homebrewed” – think home cooking or craft beer.

Many of these characters were created to take part in tabletop role-playing game sessions. Others were invented as a creative writing exercise, often as part of a community event.

This specific character was created as part of an evil version of the “Marvel family”.


Major Terror is petty and backstabbing. While he lacks the ruthlessness and brutality of Captain Terror, he makes up for it in his natural deviousness (which comes from Freddie, not just “the Cunning of Set”).

He frequently directs subtle insults at Willy, ranging from his choice of names (intended to “outrank Captain Terror”) to his affair with Bloody Mary, who Willy wants for himself.

DC Universe History

Major Terror is intended to exist in the anti-matter universe introduced in JLA: Earth 2, populated by the Crime Syndicate of Amerika.
