Captain Planet and the Planeteers
From Uncyclopedia, the content-free encyclopedia
“The Planeteers exhibit remarkable levels of security awareness when engaged in criminal activity, and are typically very knowledgeable of law enforcement techniques. They are to be considered armed at all times with elemental magic rings and are extremely dangerous. Do not attempt to apprehend these individuals until back up has arrived.”
Several illegal immigrants who join powers with a scraggly looking Brooklynite to summon "tree name" Captain Planet. Recently the Planeteers have received paramilitary equipment and training in the middle east after joining the League of Shadows, where they acted as Ra's al Ghul's assassins to bring about the violent end of the industrial age. Remember kids, eco-terrorism is for bad guys.

Despite the fact that it only worked during the day, the solar powered jet was the Planeteers main method of globetrotting. The pollution free vehicle was invented by a young Al Gore in 1977, and is said to be part of his pre-work on the internet. It remained locked up in his parents garage to avoid drawing the ire of auto manufacturers, until the early eighties when it was swallowed by the earth (along with Mr. and Mrs. Gore). Whexzzvxzn Giah (AKA Mother Earth) was cleaning out her basement she found it and decided to give it to the Planeteers to screw with the FAA's tracking abilities.
The planeteers were renowned to be very protective of their jet. To the extent that when they were approached by leading aerospace companies about being able to research the design for mass production they declared all aerospace research to be ecocide and that the human race must limit themselves to half a billion or face earth's wrath. Because they only traveled during the day (and thus had to do all planet saving by night) some have speculated that the Planeteers are, in fact, vampires.
edit Special Feature: Where Are They Now?
Following a major conflagaration in Brooklyn, police discovered a disoriented naked Wheeler wandering the streets. Taken into custody, forensics experts discovered gasoline and other chemical accelerates soaked into his clothes. FBI psychologists theorise that when he lost the ring of fire, Wheeler's pyromaniac tendencies and drive for animal rights had no socially acceptable outlet, leading him to laboratory arson.
Returning to Russia, Linka became a journalist. Her most recent scoop was a major expose on corruption in the Putin government, coincidentally around the same time as her near fatal pollonium poisoning. She maintains control of the Russian mafia, and maintains close ties to Iran, Iraq and Syria which supply her with a stockpile of nuclear and chemical weapons.
Kwame, "The mole", able to control the rocks that form the Earth itself; he recently went to work for the DeBeers diamond cartel. He has allegedly 'moved on' from his earlier environmental beliefs, now stating that "business, money, stock markets, the environment and the slave trade should be able to co-exist." He is believed to have an army of fanatically religious child soldiers used to secure conflict mineral mines in the Congo as bases of operation for GAEA.
Gi has been in the press lately, after allegedly attempting to seduce and asphyxiate Aquaman with a plastic bag; and inject his blood with acid. An attempt to drug the water supply of Gotham with powerful hallucinogens in retaliation for the rise of pharmaceutical mutated fish. Interpol agents lost her in Hong Kong; though a string of unexplained shipping disasters in Singapore bear her forensics signature.
Mai-ti was originally depressed at having the worst power of the group, until he discovered it's true potential after watching Death Note. Utilizing this power he took over 80% of South America's drug cartels...by making them LOVE him. He now spends his days getting humanity to dig their own graves and kill themselves, they do his every bidding with just a wave of his ring.

- Mowing the lawn on Hope Island. Cleaning Gaia's house. Washing Gaia's clothing. Changing the channel on Gaia's TV when she asks. Hey, you weren't expecting the spirit of the earth to not enjoy her position just a bit?
- Breaking the fingers of greedy American CEOs who pollute the environment and telling them they better clean up their act before the next "visit". Beheading them live on the internet if they don't change.
- Planting thermite charges at oil rigs, genetics laboratories, Mako reactors, and land developments.
