Captain Marvel #48-49 (1977)

NOTE: Post Updated February 2019

There are a LOT of words in these issues.  It’s not clear why Gerry is suddenly overwriting in the extreme just to tell a pretty bad story about “El Gato The Cheetah!” who hijacks the Kree Sentry robot and makes it do his bidding in a battle against Captain Marvel.

How bad are these issues?  Check out this sequence, in which a doctor finds Rick Jones in the desert and tries to treat him…

“Who finked?”  Nobody talks like that.  Nobody ever talked like that.

In the end, Ronan the Accuser gets involved but ends the story by going crazy.

Don’t ask.
