The edgy anime version of Captain Planet that never was

Illustration for article titled The edgy anime version of emCaptain Planet/em that never was

What if, instead of hanging out with Ted Turner and going back in time to fight Hitler, Captain Planet and the Planeteers were the stars of an R-rated anime in which they threw out their sweet vests and became disaffected eco-terrorists hooked on endangered, psychoactive toads?


Illustrator Benjamin Ang has imagined such a situation where perhaps this amphibian addiction is the case. Look how disgruntled Ma-Ti is for having the most mediocre power! I bet he only summons cone shells. Also, Captain Planet eats a hydroelectric dam whenever he's summoned. It's in his contract.
