When Captain Mar-Vell Had the Ability to Cast Illusions!

In Captain Marvel #16 (by Archie Goodwin, Don Heck and Syd Shores), Supreme Intelligence gives Mar-Vell new powers and a new costume, however, it is unclear if the old Zo-given powers are gone...

In fact, Mar-Vell even suggests that the new powers are still there, but we don't see him use the illusion-casting.

The following issue (by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane), it seems like Mar-Vell lost most of his new powers when he got the Nega-Bands...

So he cast illusions no more!

What a weird power, right?
