Includes a few characters in the upper left that never had the name Captain Marvel, but they are Ultra nice to see \:\)

If you look close you will see the two Captain Marvels from the 70's live action show in there as well.

Seeing Shazzan in the picture brings me to the conclusion that the two kids who summon Shazzan with their rings could be the inspiration for the Wonder Twins on the Super Friends show.

Interesting piece, it apparently it doesn't just include people called Captain Marvel (and various other iterations of "Marvel"), but also re-named knockoffs (e.g. Miracle Man) and characters whose costume and/or power-MO were (or possibly could have been) inspired by the Big Red Cheese, including e.g. Thor and He-Man. As someone who has done research on Golden-Age superheroines, I am particularly tickled by the inclusion of Filipino comic heroine Darna (in the upper right).
