A Live Action Captain Planet Movie Concept That I’d Actually Go See

It's A World of Laughter A World of Tears

Don Cheadle is Captain Planet from Don Cheadle

Five human children raised in isolation by the mysterious spirit Gaia now face the responsibility of their ultimate purpose: reaching out to humanity and convincing it to change it’s polluting ways before it’s too late. At the same time, they feel compelled to solve the worst of the man-made natural disasters by summoning a dangerously amoral, nigh omnipotent entity and hoping desperately that he saves more lives than he takes.

Of course, my version isn’t supposed to be funny. It’s like if you threw Animorphs, Watchmen, and The Authority in a bin, shook it up, and looked at what came out.

In other words, this is why Hollywood shouldn’t hire me.

Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
