Oh, Captain Planet! For a brief few years in the early '90s, one of the strangest superheroes ever inspired kids everywhere to "take pollution down to zero." But what would happen if he went power-mad and starting turning everybody into trees and broccoli?

Luckily, the comedy team at Funny or Die is here to tackle that very question, in the hilarious followup to a 2011 short that starred Iron Man 2's Don Cheadle as the big blue superhero taking things way too seriously.

Now he's not playing around. Toss that plastic bottle into the trash instead of recycling? Bad move, my friend.

Check out the short below and marvel at the idea of a real-life Captain Planet roaming the world kicking pollution's ass.

What do you think? Is Cap becoming the next great supervillain?
