    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.....

    Namor and Man-Thing are incredibly similar to Aquaman and Swamp Thing.
    I co-host a podcast about comics. Mostly it's X-Men comics of the 90's.

    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.

    It’s interesting that now the x-men have krakoa they’re almost like the environmental heroes

    The Knights of Pendragon was an environmental team, the comic was even printed on environmentally friendly paper using half the trees and minimum whitening bleach

    Iron Man has often been extremely concerned with the environment. I think he's probably one of the few heroes who can be, because of the level he operates at.

    Not so much an environmental power set but Husk left Generation X at the end of the series, her plan was to work in environmental conservation. She tried to get the others on board but wasn’t able to as they decided to go their own ways. Presumably this is what she did before joining X-Corp, so Paige is at least considered environmentally conscious.

    Exploitation of natural resources is a theme of Aaron's God of Thunder in the later part of the run and the following volumes.
    Yeah Roxxon, is the Marvel version of oil companies. Last Days of Midgard really goes into it.

    Scott Lang has had some environmental issues throughout his career. he himself isn't an environmentalist. but he has to be conscious about it because of the surrounding community. i imagine that a lot of that was Spencer's writing. he did create the last Plant Man as a somewhat ineffectual supervillain.

    You mean, Aquaman is like Namor.



    From 1970, Sub-Mariner #28.

    An awesome short story from the late 80s, and some of Jim Lee's first work, was a Namor story in Marvel Comics Presents #33 called Dying in Paradise.

    Then there was the 90s John Byrne series which started out as Namor fighting pollution as a businessman.
