Back in summer 2011, comedy site FunnyOrDie.com presented the world with its unique take
on the Captain Planet series
. The short video featured Oscar nominated actor Don Cheadle as the environmental superhero helping the Planeteers - and going a bit haywire with his ability to turn evildoers into trees. In the end, he basically flips off the world, turns one of the sobbing Planeteers into a shrub, and flies away.
It was brilliant.
Yesterday, FunnyOrDie released a sequel with Cheadle once again suiting up, turning blue, and showing us a side to the Captain that bodes ill for humanity. Basically, he's become a supreme dictator of all things green and has started turning people not only into trees, but also rabbits, broccoli, manatees, etc. Even the Planeteers have been reduced to only one - Ma-Ti (Heart).
The site is promising a Part III, so we'll have to see if the Captain can be reasoned with not to wipe out humanity. Check out the video below.
