'Captain Planet' Trailer Looks Serious Enough To Be Real

He's blue as shit. Remember Captain Planet? The blue guy who would probably be asking you to sign a petition outside of Whole Foods if he wasn't a superhero? Well, an enthusiastic fan put together not only a pretty funny origin story, but a spot-on send-up of the superhero genre. And while the effects aren't quite Avatar quality, they're better than anything you've ever done, so just shut up, ok? Considering this was a labor of love, the production values were actually quite high, and the screeching rock song in the background goes a long way to sell the grittiness. So jump on board with Captain Planet. You silly Planeteers.
