The characters list for Captain Planet and the Planeteers

The Planeteers

The Planeteers are five teenagers from five different continents assembled by Gaia, the Spirit of the Earth to defend the world from pollution, criminals, and natural disasters. When the situation is too much for them to handle they let their powers combine to summon the environmental superhero, Captain Planet. A monkey is with them too.

Captain Planet

  Captain Planet is the result of the Planeteers powers being combined and magnified. He is summoned by the Planeteers as a last resort to save the day. He can use all the Planteers powers and blend them to make more. His weaknesses are pollution and hate.

Eco Villains

The Eco Villains are a small group of villains and their subordinates who wreak havoc on the Earth with pollution, wildlife endangerment or shady business dealings. Why many of them do this is never explained other than the fact that they can.
