Does Captain Marvel's industry pay off? Yes, it does! Because Cap didn't loaf but invested his time in making his pal Whitey a better soldier, Whitey is promoted!
Captain Marvel's industry is clearly seen through his actions in both digging ditches and training his friend. There are many other examples throughout the pages of Cap's comics, but this stands out to me as one of the better examples. Captain Marvel is a hero who exemplifies industry, and that's just one more reason he's been my hero and a hero to countless others!
