Captain Planet

A superhero with the powers of nature, Captain Planet is a composite of the five Planeteers and their powers -- Earth, fire, wind, water and heart -- magnified. All the forces of the natural world are at his disposal. Captain Planet has grass-green hair, sky-blue skin, earthy brown eyes, a blood-red chest, gloves and boots, and a sunlight-yellow insignia/globe. The globe on his chest sometimes flickers and turns gray when he is losing power or is exposed to high levels of pollution. Captain Planet was voiced by David Coburn.
