* LifeWillKillYou: While the cause was mildly fantastic, his death from cancer was played realistically and affectingly, which may be related to his never having been resurrected.

During the [[TheSixties 1960s]], writer Creator/StanLee noticed that the name's trademark from [[{{ComicBook/Shazam}} the Fawcett Comics character]] was available again, and decided that Marvel should own it (Marvel Comics, Captain Marvel... makes sense, right?). So he created a new superhero named that, one quite different from the previous ones. The new character first appeared in ''"Marvel Super-Heroes''" #12 (December, 1967). Given the value of the name to DC and the utter obscurity of the Marvel version of the character, you'd think Marvel would cash in and make a mint selling the name back to DC at an enormous profit... except for the fact that he's called "Captain Marvel" and they're called "Marvel Comics" and you just can't let that kind of synchronicity slip away from you.

* ReedRichardsIsUseless: A variant: Rick Jones comes to Reed and the other superintelligent superheroes of the era and asks them to use their big showoffy brains to cure Mar-Vell's cancer. They come to the uncomfortable realization that they could have been doing that for everyone in the world ''the entire time''.
** And when their efforts fail to bear fruit in time to save Mar-Vell, they '''just stop trying'''! Nevermind that '''other''' people might be helped in the future, nope, it was "save Mar" or nothing.

Despite his death having occurred over thirty years ago and him unusually staying dead (save for a brief return during ''ComicBook/AvengersVsXMen''), he and his legacy still exert a powerful influence on the Marvel Universe today.

For a period of time, Marvel found himself accidentally "merged" with teenage singer Rick Jones (the same kid who was involved in the ComicBook/IncredibleHulk's origin) so that only one of them could exist in the universe, with the other one stuck in the [[AnotherDimension dimension]] called the [[AntiMatter Negative Zone]] until the one on Earth struck together his "nega-band" bracelets, causing them to switch places. (Writer RoyThomas has admitted that this was done as a nod to the original Captain Marvel, who was a child who could turn into an adult superhero.) It was later revealed that this was ThePlan of the Supreme Intelligence, who was really a MagnificentBastard whose ultimate goal was to jumpstart the evolutionary potential of the Kree race via Rick Jones's genes. Eventually, Marvel finds a way to bring back Rick from the Zone and they resume their lives.

During the events of the ''ComicBook/CivilWar'' series, the original Mar-Vell reappeared, apparently having been accidentally transported from the past. He tried to fit in the present, knowing he would have to go back in time and die at some point... until it was revealed during the events of the SecretInvasion that he was actually a spy for the alien Skrull race -ironically the Kree's biggest enemies- named Khn'nr who had, like many other such sleeper agents, been brainwashed into ''thinking'' that he was the real Marvel. Still, he ends up embracing the Mar-Vell identity and becoming a true hero anyway. Before he died.
