    Yeah, the closest I can think of for semi-recent stories has been in Aaron's Thor, where that new SHIELD agent Roz is part of the environmental SHIELD department or something. Ive never thought about it, but given the political/social underpinning of the MU, its sort of surprising they haven't dug into this topic more.

    I wonder what the rights to Captain Planet are like right now? I'd laugh my ass off to see Marvel try to update and incorporate that character into the 616.

    Oh! Maybe Zen the Intergalactic Ninja! He was an environmental character too right? Never saw the cartoon but I did have an old Game Boy game and he was always fighting smog monsters and stuff.....

    DC have Aquaman and swamp thing but marvel doesn't really seem to have anyone?

    Namor and Man-Thing are incredibly similar to Aquaman and Swamp Thing.

    Oh, and then there is this lesser known character named Storm that is basically all about the environment....

    Brute Force has potential. Marvel just needs to call Grant Morrison.

    Marvel: Hello, Grant?

    Grant Morrison: Yes?

    Marvel: We love what you did with We3, you took the concept of animals wearing power suits and really made it work.

    Grant Morrison: Thanks

    Marvel: Speaking of which we have some animals in power suits..

    Comics in general mostly use environmentalists as villains, albeit villains who have a point. Namor, for example, was often as villain who attacked the surface because some individual polluted the ocean. I think it's hard to use environmentalists as heroes because the issues is usually too big or too small. It's too big when it's the side-effect of some corporation mainly staffed by innocent people. And too small when it's one person being a litterbug. Captain Planet, notably, created a very artificial situation with pollution-villains. Such villains feel out of place anywhere but children's comics.
