In Chapter 9 of Adventures of Captain Marvel (1941), the Scorpion’s plan to obtain the six lenses that will allow him to locate the powerful Scorpion Tomb continues. Captain Marvel tries to stop him, but the Scorpion is always one step ahead.
Meanwhile, Betty Wallace and her brother Whitey are still in danger, as the Scorpion’s henchmen continue to pursue them. They are rescued by Billy Batson, who manages to fend off the attackers with the help of his quick wits and his transformation into Captain Marvel.
Captain Marvel then sets his sights on stopping the Scorpion once and for all. He tracks the villain to an old warehouse, where a fierce battle breaks out. In the end, Captain Marvel emerges victorious, but the Scorpion manages to escape once again.
As the chapter ends, the Scorpion’s plan is nearing completion, and Captain Marvel realizes that he must act quickly if he is going to prevent the villain from obtaining the lenses and locating the Scorpion Tomb. The stakes are higher than ever before, and it remains to be seen whether our hero will be able to save the day.
