Captain Planet: A Hero For Earth

A Hero For EarthI have been wanting to rewatch Captain Planet and the Planeteers for a while. After seeing enthusiasm for the show in comments and getting messages from people about the show after my last entry on super heroes, I decided I am going to recap this entire show like I’m doing the Goosebumps book series.

It had an interesting premise, it was very well made, and it had an important message that resonated with kids from all over the world: don’t litter, turn the water off while you brush your teeth, walk or ride a bike rather than drive (cause we were driving when we watched this as kids)… Basically, do your part to save the world; every little action helps.

Secret identities, powers bestowed upon individuals that seem more like an unwanted responsibility than something fun, and some of the best villains imaginable… I love super hero stories.

In this entry, I’m going to count down my top five favorite super heroes. My list might surprise you.
