Captain Planet is the eponymous character of the TV show Captain Planet and the Planeteers.
Captain Planet has long green mullet and brown eyes.
Captain Planet displays a wry sense of humor and often makes puns while taunting the show's cast of villains. In episodes like Mind Pollution and A Formula for Hate, however, Captain Planet refrains from his usual dishing out of jokes and puns, probably because of the serious nature of the subject matters of these particular episodes (drugs and HIV/AIDS respectively).

Powers and Abilities Edit
Captain Planet's abilities are never clearly defined within the show, allowing him to always have a way of defeating his enemy and solving the problem before him. He can shape-shift and alter his structure to take on the properties of any element or material as well as transmuting other objects in a similar fashion. In various episodes he flies, has great strength, withstands various forces that can kill a normal human, and displays telepathic and empathic abilities.
Weaknesses and Limitations Edit
Captain Planet is weakened when he is in contact with pollution (including mental pollution, hate). Like Gaia, he is bound to the physical realm of Earth. Although he is capable of flying into orbit, he can’t travel away from the planet. Thus, in one episode he is unable to "return to the Earth" completely as two of the five Planeteers and their rings, Earth and Heart, are stranded in space.
In the beginning of the series, Gaia assembles a modern-day group of young people from several nations. When the modern-day Planeteers combine their powers to summon the elemental warrior, this incarnation takes on the appearance of a superhero named "Captain Planet".

Captain Planet and Gaia don't have much screen-time together, mainly due to her staying on Hope Island while he assists the Planeteers on their missions and/or him returning to his crystal matrix as soon as his work is done. However, when they do interact, they get along well and show that they care for each other. This is best visible by the end of Summit to Save Earth Part II; when the Planeteers summon him to deal with Zarm, Captain Planet first forces Zarm back into his ship, then pauses to give Gaia a hug before proceeding to send Zarm back where he'd come from.
Captain Pollution Edit
The two are polar opposites and Captain Pollution was created to be the archenemy of Captain Planet.
