i always figured you could still form Captain Planet without the power of heart, he just wouldn't care about the pollution

The discussion about the lameness of heart never has in consideration that fire as used by that redhead idiot is just a flamethrower but without all of the coolness that carrying one inspires. So yeah, fire is the lamest power.

Wait, fire is lamer than heart because it's a magical, concealable, never-ending flame thrower? You and I have different definitions of lame, my friend. Very different.

I always liked fire, but I thought the kid with fire power was kinda lame.

Totally unrelated, but have you have ever heard of a show called 'Manswers'? A friend of mine recommended it to me, but I thought he meant 'Mancers'... you know, like wizards? Pyromancers and such? So I was really excited to see the show. Needless to say I was disappointed.

Sounds like Avatar: the Last Airbender to me. The "elemental wizard" part I mean.

if there were a heart bender their power would pretty much be limited to making themselves pass out

Nope, fire is lamer than heart because with fire you just have the flamethrower. With heart you can command a small army of monkeys WHILE having a flamethrower equipped.

I was thinking about a heart bender in the literal sense. Y'know, he controls blood and such. That wouldn't be so useless.

Well, he was a white male, after all...

Then again, so am I. Wink

As an add-on, here's a Captain Planet review from a guy who IMHO makes every single poster in this forum look rational by comparison:

Yeah, they went into that in the show. Zombie-like armies are pretty handy.

Plus everyone would think you're not an asshole cuz your power is 'heart' so you could probably trick 'em for a while.

That's because of the politically over correct nature of the show. He was the only white male among the supposed good guys so of course he had to be wrong about everything.

Waterbenders can already do that. It's creepy stuff.

(paraphrasing from somewhere or another)

When a man makes a mistake, people say what a fool that man is! When a woman makes a mistake, people say what fools women are!

Works the same with caucasians and non-caucasians.

The fact that white males dominate almost everything in the USA (even moreso back when Captain Planet was created; in any examination of any piece of pop culture, the prevailing attitudes of its era are crucial) makes white males almost immune to stereotype. IMHO.

I can say that because, again, I'm a white male. Wink

IIRC every Planeteer was stereotyped per nationality but that's another story.
