An in­con­ve­nient su­per­hero is back

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

Just when you thought you’d heard the fi­nal scrap­ing at the bot­tom of the su­per­hero bar­rel, along comes the an­nounce­ment for a live-ac­tion re­boot of Cap­tain Planet.

The weedy eco-war­rior who ru­ined Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon telly dur­ing the “car­ing 90s” will soon re­turn in the imag­i­na­tively ti­tled Cap­tain Planet: The Movie.

“With the earth­quakes, tor­na­does, melt­ing ice­bergs and all the other prob­lems threat­en­ing the world right now, Earth re­ally needs her great­est de­fender,” writes pro­ducer Su­san Mont­ford in the scary press re­lease.

She’s right. Where is the Le­gion of Su­per-Pets when you need them?
