* BoundAndGagged: Almost every climax in the Golden Age revolved around the villain trussing and gagging Billy -- either to prevent him saying the magic word, or just because they didn't want a nosy kid snooping around -- and whether he could manage to get it off in time to save himself from a deathtrap; the nigh-invincible Captain Marvel beating the bad guys to a pulp was, naturally, a ForegoneConclusion. This also happened frequently to his teammates, Mary and Freddy.

*** In [[http://www.theworldsmightiestmortal.com/2016/12/a-showcase-of-captain-marvels-powers.html one Golden Age story]], it was explicitly said what the Power of Zeus did: it made him invulnerable. The Courage of Achilles (which is what his invulnerability is attributed to in more modern stories) instead gave him Achilles' ''fighting skills'' as well as literally making him fearless. So the "Power" confusion is not so much New Powers As The Plot Demands but New Powers Because The Writers Forgot What His Old Powers Were. [[note]] Mind that the Golden Age comics weren't really written with an eye toward consistency, and with how he totally overwhelmed most enemies in the days when actual superpowered villains were the exception instead of the rule, there wasn't much need to. For instance the way the mythical gods in the setting were depicted differently pretty much every single time they showed up. [[/note]]
