Ok, so I stumbled across this image recently -

Captain Planet Poster

And after some close inspection, it turns out this was fan made (Some clues indicate the Typography - the "C" looks terrible, the symmetry of the title is off, the Captain Planet logo looks too crisp against the rest of the figure, etc).

The figure used to represent Captain Planet was almost certainly borrowed from somewhere to use in this art. I know I've seen him before, but I can't place him. That is to say, I have seen that exact image elsewhere before. Where's he from?

  • Are you asking who is Captain Planet or who is the character on the poster? – Yasskier Aug 25 '15 at 2:02

    @Yasskier Who is the character on the poster. As I said above, this is a fan made image, so the image of the person in the middle is taken from somewhere else. – Ben Aug 25 '15 at 2:04

    I think the C is meant to represent the planet, also I'd watch this, looks cool as, kudos to whoever made it – Aequitas Aug 25 '15 at 2:30

    Using the planet Earth to represent the element earth is... an interesting interpretation. – Moyli Aug 25 '15 at 10:35

    @Aequitas The 'C' is actually just that way in the font. That is the Birth of a Hero font. (Granted, whoever made this might have selected that font because they felt the 'C' worked that way, I suppose) – SnoringFrog Aug 25 '15 at 15:57
