Captain Planet

Back in the ’90s, “Captain Planet” was a popular animated television show about the environment. Five youths from different continents were dubbed the Planeteers and given the task of defending Earth from pollution and disasters.

In situations that the Planeteers could not resolve alone, they combined their powers to summon Captain Planet, who possessed magnified powers and also exhibited a lot of wit when confronting evildoers.

My son, John David, enjoyed the show while growing up. So when he attended Thursday’s Convocation at Elon featuring Brian Williams and five others who sought to confront Earth’s problems, he created this visual representation.

In the role of Captain Planet, Brian Williams leads (from left) Shirley Jackson, David Walker, David Levin, Eboo Patel and David Gergen on their Elon quest
