Country: United Kingdom
British B&W reprint magazine.. Originally known as 'The Mighty World of Marvel' Vol 1. Renamed 'Marvel Comic' with issue 330 then 'Marvel Super-Heroes' with issue 353. It was cancelled with issue 397 - not 388 as sometimes thought.
It is often believed that because original Captain Britain strips stopped in issue 388 (leaving a 'next week' caption at the end) the title was cancelled at that point. This is not so. Alan Moore had just taken over the writing on the strip and plans were being made for a new UK Marvel title (The Daredevils)with Captain Britain at the helm. Issue 389 featured a three page article on the varied history of Captain Britain by Alan Moore.
Original Captain Britain strips continued in - 'The Daredevils' UK Monthly five months later.
Marvel Superheroes is notable for the first appearance of Alan Moore and Alan Davis' run on Captain Britain.
Some later issues also featured Alan Moore 'Night Raven' text stories.
After cancellation, this title merged with 'The Daredevils'.
