AIM Poll #3: God vs. The Planeteers

Poll for the week of August 4 – August 11, 2002

The Question:

We’ve all seen the Planeteers clean up pollution galore on TV, but could they have handled the 10 plagues God sent to Egypt in the Bible?

The Response Starters:

1. God would reign supreme because…
2. By their powers combined, the Planeteers could do it because…


Shamus: God would reign supreme because aside from having the omnipotent, omnipresent edge, God is always a proper noun, even in pronoun form. now that’s power.


Pat: This is the God of the Old Testament, mind you, so He would simply yet spectacularly explode the heads of each of the Planeteers individually, except for the kid who has Heart, because he’s just so freaking useless anyways it would be a waste of time.

Treesa: As for the poll, dude, I feel bad for the cows, and the 1st borns, and the 1st born cows. Cows. hm. reminds me of ice-cream. Yum.

AND THE REST…in no particular order:

Lacey: God would reign supreme because first of all you don’t mess with God… he made the man who made the planeteers.. come on now.. Plus if you know anything about them, you know when their “powers combine” there comes Captain Planet! But what exactly are their powers? Individually they are fire, water, wind… And you think God doesn’t control fire, water, wind and all that other crap? Boy is the devil gonna have fun with you in HELL.

Shaun McQuaid: God would reign supreme because in those times, the pollution wasn’t the plagues, it was the heathens! Therefore, the planeteers (in a fit of rage brought on by too much mead, perhaps) might actually join in and produce some plagues of their own, like too MUCH ozone or perhaps some sort of water-cleaner out of control that kills everything in the Nile.

Alex: God would reign supreme because (insert reason) the planeteers have someone who’s power is “Heart.” WTF use does that have!? No earthly powers could even compete with “he who shall not be named” let alone a bunch of fairies running around with rings, led by a green guy that can’t do anything when he’s around pollution. Wrong planet to be on dude!

Katie C: God would reign supreme because, well, as a PK I feel compeled to say that. Although, if you go from the religious point of view you could say that the Planeteers were created by God, and maybe God would have created the Planeteers so that some body could clear up the plagues.

Hamel: God would reign supreme because God did way more cool things than the planeteers could ever do….like changing women into poop, filling valleys with carcasses, flooding the earth, making the universe, the planeteers will eventually die and God will still be around….number one top dog.

    The ability to summon a green dude wearing a speedo and tanktop/bra with a mullet has to count for something. Plus the Geo Cruiser is such a hot ride that even God has to give mad props to the Planeteers.

    I had never heard of the Planeteers, but I believe I may now be scarred for life.

    Really, what’s interesting about this poll is that no one took the plagues one by one. The fight wasn’t between God and the Planeteers, it was a question of ‘could the planeteers handle the plagues.’

    Ten Plagues:
    1. rivers to blood – I bet Water and Earth could fix this one up.
    2. frogs – heart has a chance to shine.
    3. lice – maybe heart again.
    4. flies and beetles – Wind could easily get those things out of Egypt
    5. livestock disease – oooh… I don’t know. It’s too bad there wasn’t a Penicillin planeteer
    6. unhealable boils? Bummer.
    7. hail mixed with fire – Fire and water could handle this
    8. locusts – wind again
    9. darkness – Could fire boy generate a sun?
    10. death of 1st born – not a chance.

    so there you have it. The Planeteers would do a darn good job, but God’s plagues would still be pretty devastating.

    Congratulations, I typed “Captain Planet Mullet” into Google Image search and this was the second result. Way to go!
