Captain Marvel’s struggling-musician sidekick Rick Jones was getting hip, too. In Englehart’s Captain Marvel #37, Jones’s tourmate Dandy hands him a capsule, which she coyly refers to as “Vitamin C”: “a present, in case your ‘personal thing’ gets boring!” Rick Jones’s ‘personal thing’ at this point was that he would switch places with Captain Marvel every time he banged together the metal “Nega-Bands” on his wrists; this meant he spent a lot of time biding time in the Negative Zone, where one of them had to remain at all times. The next time Jones is floating idly in the Negative Zone, he pops the pill and begins hallucinating about his childhood in the suburbs; meanwhile, Captain Marvel’s jaw starts tingling, his head pulses, and his surroundings take on the properties of an Escher drawing. When the Watcher shows up and attacks Captain Marvel, our hero breaks out in a cold sweat; fortunately, by the next issue, he and Rick both have their bearings. Captain Marvel lauds Rick for the growth of his mind.
