  • Episode Description
  • The Eco-Villains team-up and, united, steal the Planeteers rings, and with them, their powers. The teens are stranded on the island of Commander Clash, a cold calculating military mind. He is tricked into going after the Planeteers by Blight, and succeeds, capturing Ma-ti and Gi. Without their powers, Planeteers are soon overwhelmed. Elsewhere, Dr. Blight creates dark variants of the power rings, and together, the eco-villains summon a dark, evil version of Captain Planet, dedicated to laying waste [literately] to the earth: CAPTAIN POLLUTION!moreless

    Notes (7)

    • Goof: When Wheeler wakes up after Skumm and Sludge are gone, we still can see the ring on his finger.

    • Captain Pollution is a play on the "Superman" villain, Bizarro - Superman's evil opposite.

    • The evil rings that are created by Dr. Blight are opposites of the Planeteers' rings. These examples include: 1. Duke Nukem - Super Radiation (counterpart of Fire) 2. Looten Plunder - Deforestation (counterpart of Earth) 3. Sly Sludge - Smog (counterpart of Wind) 4. Verminous Skumm - Toxics (counterpart of Water) 5. Dr. Blight - Hate (counterpart of Heart)

    • Captain Planet's entrance when summoned: His entrance is just like in A Hero For Earth but this time with boots.

    • First mini-series of the series.
