Captain Planet by Zigwolf Captain Planet by Zigwolf
also known as the Guardian of Earth. Wheeler thought that was a mouthful and came up with the name, Captain Planet.

For as long as the Earth has existed, it's always needed a defender to stop those who would try to destroy it. Gaia created the Guardian after her fight with a former friend turned enemy, Perses (reimagined Zarm) tried to destroy her world. Using the elements of Earth, Fire, Wind, and Water and throwing in a lot of Heart, she created Earth's greatest protector. After the world crossed the brink of destruction, Gaia became too weak to call upon her guardian and instead used 5 summoning rings in her possession to call upon him. With a portion of the guardian's power in each ring, every one of them can use the element within.

The Guardian lacks any personality when he's first formed by the planeteers but as time goes on, he develops a personality of his own and his blank face will take on a more human-like appearance.

I used to watch the show when I was really young, I like this redesign. It look like it could be reboot of the old show. I just like it.

I can imagine in the live action series, he develops humanity bit by bit.

Ma-Ti is crying to Captain Planet after something bad happened to him involving pollution/radiation. The other four cry for him. But for the first time, Captain Planet spoke and starts to be re-energized into something "human".

He does gain a bit of humanity through the course of this series. He's always defending the world and humanity but he's never had much human interaction. After spending time with the planeteers, he gains a personality and his face starts gaining more human features.

Are you gonna do Captain Planet (Complete) later on? He's not the same without his catchphrase "By your powers combined... I AM CAPTAIN PLANET!". His sense of humor from the 90s deserves a comeback!

Man you've done an amazing job with this reimaging. The design is great and the new story behind the character is also good too. I don't know who owns the Captain Planet property now, but if they would ever to reboot it you definitely pitch this version to them.

Well, I'm not gonna make Gaia look supermodel hot for this. She's going to be a slightly heavier set woman with a darker skin tone and her dress is going to be changed up to something more greek looking and it'll be green, blue, and white (representing the world) instead of purple.

If the sixth planeteer is gonna be a she, perhaps a love interest to Ma-Ti. Of if it's a "he", Gi's love interest.

Since Kwame says "Let our powers combine", have the Aussie planeteer say "Let our powers unite!"

Well if she does form a crush on Ma-Ti, it'll be one that takes a long time to form. Kwame and Gi like each other right off the bat, while Wheeler and Linka have a love hate relationship.

I think that phrase is something that every Planeteer will say at one point, but that new phrase is cool to thrown in this.

I still prefer a male Aussie Planeteer. Gi & him can fit. Kwame & Karen are suited.

Her father is involved with the solar energy projects. Kwame takes interest in his work and his daughter. She can help Kwame and his people find a suitable home for them to live in peace without worrying about finding one place to another.

In this video, Kwame & Karen are together.

Well let's just agree to disagree. You prefer male, I prefer a female planeteer. I'm just tired of teams with only two women on them while there are more guys joining up.

I think if Karen becomes a love interest, it'll be for a limited time, not a recurring thing.
I like that idea of her father working on a solar energy project. Maybe to expand it, the father is involved with turning every disaster into a way of creating energy. Tornados into wind energy, floods into hydro-electric energy, and volcanos into geothermal energy.

Let Karen be Ma-ti's age and make her father a recurring ally. Sort of an Australian eco-friendly Tony Stark.

Once the Planeteers restored Earth, they could inspire him to see an opportunity on every natural disaster.  That's why his daughter Karen admired them enough to join their ranks.

Zigwolf Featured By Owner Mar 18, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Ok, that can work

I can't see that happening, only because after the world is restored, disasters go back to occurring as much as they were before the world ended. So he should get to developing those disaster energy devices while the world is ruined.

Ok, you know what ? I know you like to suggest ideas on all my drawings but I'm the one in control of this. I'm not 100%sure if I'm going with the idea of Karen being Australian and the sixth planeteer but it is still a good idea. Don't be commenting like you have control over this. If you want to make a sixth planeteer that you're happy with then go make you're own, because I guarantee that if I include a sixth planeteer you're probably not gonna entirely happy with how I make them.

If Ma-Ti gets a love interest, it would make the Heart Ring even stronger, since love it's the power that makes the world go round.

Sorry, but I can't resist quoting Huey Lewis' "The Power of Love".

I like the pollution being his weakness. But having problems with one of the planeteers will lose a part of its strength. Like its connection is lost.

Well this is still a good way of keeping them in the fight after Cap is summoned, because from what I remember from the old cartoon, the planeteers didn't do anything after Cap appeared.

If Captain Planet's weakness to pollution is reduced to 0 now, then what's it weakness then?

Captain Planet is invincible. But what if there is a deadly pollution that would affect him?

:iconzigwolf:
Zigwolf Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Bullets and Missiles, you know stuff that can kill everyone else, but it takes quite a bit more to take him down. Pollution to a degree still affects him, but only the concentrated pollution that harms him is the kind that Captain Pollution/Plague releases.

I'm trying not to go the kryptonite route with an easily obtained weakness that others can gain without trouble.

Well the reason I'm not too eager to get to him is because he's not all that big or important to the other Eco Villains (You know what ? I'm changing that. It's lame) ...........................the other Lords of the Apocalypse. He's more like a glorified garbageman. He serves Creedly, Blyte, and Plunter and gets rid of their destroyed war machines, failed genetic experiments, and slain enemies.

:iconryderdecade:
ryderdecade Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2017
Guess a replacement for Rigger, Argos Bleak, Ooze & Leadsuit. But he'll still try to scheme behind the other Eco-Villains' backs just so that he can find a way to make quick rich schemes without them.

Would be nice to see him turn over a new leaf later on. Turn on the other eco-villains for the Planeteers. He'll side with them when he realizes his mistakes.

Well it's not like those characters can't appear here, but I need something to add to their character because I can't have just a buck tooth redneck, bald, evil moustache bodyguard, (I can't find any picture of Ooze but his description is boring: jeans, a vest, and a hardhat) and a nerd in a blue hazmat suit. There needs to be something that makes them interesting.

Like Leadsuit could be a mutant that releases more radioactive energy than Duke Nukem and the suit is to keep everyone else around him safe. He's a prisoner in a lead covered and instead of glasses on the inside, he has lenses covering his visor (like this  i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTAwWDUwMA=… )

I think Sly trying to do some scheme behind his masters' backs sounds good, it could eventually lead him getting punished and turned into a mutant made of the garbage he gets rid of (like this vignette4.wikia.nocookie.net/t… )

Sly isn't the type to change, he's all about making the quickest buck for the smallest amount of work. He was the one that poisoned Gi's homeland when he dumped toxic waste into their water because he was too lazy to properly get rid of it.

I feel like an "edgy" Captain Planet could work and this is a very good basis. This Captain Planet looks and feels like a DC superhero.

But does he still have the weaknesses of the original Captain Planet? I always found it pathetic that CP was weak to the thing he was suppose to fight. I was thinking that maybe this Captain Planet would be immune to any kind of pollution and his main weakness would instead be his dependence on the planeteers. Basically CP would only have the will to fight as long as the Planeteers do, if any of the planeteers start to lose faith or trust in each other or there cause of protecting the Earth, Captain Planet would be weakened considerably.

Zigwolf Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2017  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Nope, that stupid weakness is gone. I do like that his power is tied to the planeteers and their statuses. I think if there's massive distrust among them, it'll leak into Cap and he'll become a reckless loner not listening to anyone. If one of them falls, he loses their source of his power and becomes weaker.
