The first volume of _Marvel Spotlight_ ended in 1977 after 33 issues and many memorable characters, including Ghost Rider, Son of Satan, Spider Woman, and Moon Knight. This second series was launched in 1979 featuring Captain Marvel and would include other characters, such as Star-Lord and Captain Universe. Unfortunately, this new incarnation would not prove as popular among readers as the first and would end after 11 issues.
This September 1980 issue is notable as an early example of Frank Miller's non-_Daredevil_ artwork in the main story and the cover. It is unusual to see Miller connected with a sci-fi series, and even more so to show so many influences from Jim Starlin!
