The Captain Carrot wiki last edited by pikahyper on 09/22/14 06:55PM View full history

Origin

Earth-C and Roger Rabbit were first discovered when the Superman of Earth-One accidentally pierced an energy barrier created by a strange, glowing meteor that teleported him to the Earth-C dimension. Unaware at first that he was in an alternate dimension, he flew towards what he believed to be the parent office of Galaxy Communications. What he found instead was Wombat Communications, a media publishing house responsible for cartoons and comic books such as the JLA (Just'a Lotta Animals).

It was here that Superman first encountered mild-mannered artist Roger Rabbit. After a brief exchange, Roger began eating a mysterious glowing carrot. Unaware that anything was amiss, he soon developed a muscular physique, super-hearing and the ability to bunny-hop clear across the city. Roger donned a costume he acquired from a costume party and became the super-hero known as Captain Carrot. Across the country, other animals experienced similar transformations. Roger met with these super-powered critters and together with Superman they defeated Starro. Then (without Superman) they formed the Zoo Crew.

Creation

Captain Carrot was created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Scott Shaw, first appearing inside a special preview inserted into New Teen Titans #16 in 1982 before starring in his own ongoing series Captain Carrot and his Amazing Zoo Crew!.

Writer Keith Giffen created the Captain K'Rot version for his short-lived New 52 sci-fi series Threshold. His appearance and demeanor appear to be a direct reference to Marvel character Rocket Raccoon.
