Nintendo Power, Volume 7 - July / August 1989
This article previews "The Super Mario Bros. Super Show" and "The Legend of
Nintendo Power, Volume 8
This is where we first got a glimpse of Kevin Keene, Princess Lana, Mother
Brain, Mega Man, and Duke! Notice the differences between the article and
the show. The show is called "Captain N: Game Master". Videoland is called
Nintendoland. The Ultimate Warp Zone is referred to as "the Power of the
Orb". Also, Kid Icarus was originally going to be called by his game name,
Pit. The "N" on Kevin's jacket is yellow. Lana has her power scepter! Why'd
they take that out?! There's also mention of the Forces of Light and
the League of Darkness. It seems as though the comic books included most of
the stuff that the TV series rejected! Good for them! Also, this article
establishes that Kevin is 15 years old in Season 1, just like I guessed!
