Captain Planet has weighed in on Australia’s same-sex marriage debate.
The environmentally-conscious superhero from the cult 1990s cartoon series Captain Planet and the Planeteers has urged all Australians to enrol to vote and have their say in the government’s postal vote on the issue in a post on the character’s official page reading: “Heart Not Hate!”
“Without heart, there would be no Captain Planet!” the post’s caption reads.
“Australia, you have only 14 days to make sure you are enrolled to vote for the postal vote on same sex marriage: http://www.aec.gov.au/enrol/ THE POWER IS YOURS!”
In the post’s comments section, Captain Planet elaborated: “People are a huge part of our planet and caring about each other is one of the most important things we can do to make our world a better place.”
The cartoon series, broadcast in the 1990s, followed a group of teenagers who could command the natural elements and combine them to summon the titular superhero character to fight environmental disasters.
