I have a lot of problems with Captain Planet & The Planeteers, but I also need an article link. Most superheroes end up with an “opposite number” at some point. Some last and become popular like Venom, Black Adam, or Bizarro. But then you have the ones nobody remembers, like the Owlman that isn’t from Watchmen. The “evil twin” was a trope even Captain Planet couldn’t escape. Dinosaur Dracula chronicles the brief and surprisingly dark life and death of Captain Pollution.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)

    I know you have problems with Captain Planet, but was that a Captain Planet action figure in your drawer of action figures that you use for art modeling? Also, don’t you have some Captain Planet comic books? I only watched a few episodes of the cartoon in my younger days. I was aware of the comic book, but never had an interest in getting it. But plenty of other folks got into Captain Planet, and the cartoon, comic books, and toys did have a major impact on 90s youth. Captain Planet may have even inspired some of them to go into environmental careers such as ecological biologists, environmental lawyers, park rangers, wildlife rehabilitators, etc.

    I understand what you’re saying. That makes me think that if I come across Captain Planet back issues at a comic store, I might pick up an issue to give it a try.
