Captain Planet and:
The Planeteers VS:
Now before you type read this:
"CAPTAIN PLANET 101:
"(Only radiation that would be harmful to the planet or the elements would harm him but only if the radiation that he emits doesn't overpower the harmful radiation)"
"(His power comes from Gaea, Titan of all types of earthly materials, not just the ones on the planet itself. Earth is a element that can be found anywhere in the solar system, same with the other elements including heat generated from the sun)"
Hulk can't hit captain planet if he turns intangible by completely becoming an element such as heat/air molecules, ice/dust particles, or even pure energy. The fact that he can manipulate the elements even to a molecular level like that would also suggest that he is also manipulating the individual molecules themselves, at which point he would be able to manipulate the molecules of anything around him (mostly every substance [man made or not] on earth is made up of earthly and elemental substances, meaning they share the same molecular structure in which said structure can be manipulated, broken down and dispersed) including hulk himself. Taking the full extent of Captain Planets powers into context instead of just making a joke out of it (it was an 80s right wing TV show about recycling, give it a rest and focus on the character), he was comical but that doesn't forfeit him out of every fight. Taking into consideration what I've just stated, this portion of his power set would place him at the level of molecule man (and this is just 1/3 of his full power set, the source of his power is what makes him greater than Molecule Man).
Like I stated in quotes above "His power comes from Gaea........", Gaea is the God of the Earth, the first Titan, she has power over all things that have to do with the planets substances and properties. She is a cosmic being and she magically created Captain Planet as her herald to protect the planet, funny thing is he can completely manipulate the planets contents ans he sees fit. And to add to that he has the power greater than that of a Greek god backing him, a Titan, Gaea no less THE Titan of the Earth who's power is only rivaled by the combined might of most if not all the gods. She grants him power like how Shazam grants Captain Marvel power (just without having to say the name) only that Captain Planet's source of power is greater and more focused as to what his purpose is. Anyway, Captain Planet is a magical being (like Capt. Marvel), and he also has strength from Gaea as well (he draws power from the elements in the Earth and the earth itself, the earth generates gravity, he can manipulate that as well but he can draw power from it as well much like Hawkman's Claw of Horus but to a much greater effect since he has such massive magic backing him), he moves through the winds since he can become the wind, fast as lightning since he can turn into energy as well, even travel through light particles granting him light speed travel (add on the magic boost and he's way beyond that as well), he cannot be physically harmed (reasons stated above).
Using the power of "heart", Capt. Planet can influence the minds of Earth creatures including humans, animals, plant life, and micro organisms. This if taken into a wider scope than just calming people and animals down, he can tell them what to do in general. It is the basic form of telepathy through strong magic and through telepathic connection with the planet itself (geo-kinesis) since he is one with the planet (so magic use is not needed unless it is an other worldly matter) which makes him one with the Earths inhabitants physically and mentally. He can have complete control over a persons thoughts and/or actions through the use of "heart" (heart meaning mind, since you don't actually believe with all your "heart", the heart is just a blood pumping muscle and cannot process thought, but the mind can so the only other thing "heart" can mean in this case is mind. And if he can control the "heart", he can control the mind).
And......that's why no one short of Void/Sentry, Pre/Post-Retcon Molecule Man, PC Mordru, Nabu, Spectre, SHAZAM, PC Darkseid (non-jobbing), Wonder Woman (with all godly equipment and God Wave), Imperiex, 1/2 full Galactus, King Thor (with Odin Force), Classic Dr. Strange, Dark Phoenix and other matter manipulating god types should really be able to face a fully realized herald of Gaea with full support from her. Without Gaea, he is still at least high matter manipulating herald status above Superman, Silver Surfer, Thor, Sentry, Wonder Woman, Juggernaut,.....basically any of the JLA (barring the Spectre and Nabu), Avengers (barring Void or Classic Dr. Strange), X-men (barring Dark/White Phoenix), and Fantastic Four (barring Reed and/or Doom with undefined amounts of prep), along with others like them.
Hulk doesn't even make the low herald list, he's just a high level meta-human. After reading this post and taking the definition of Capt. Planet's powers and what the upper limits are into account and consideration, you will see that this isn't even a fight. This is basically Hulk (any version) vs Captain Planet..... Hulk gets stomped....
I got this info on Planet from a Hulk vs Captain Planet thread. So Captain Planet is no push-over.
and The Planeteers are kind of like Green Lantern's but a bit more "fragile".
So who wins?
