Joey Wheeler is a Planeteer of FIRE!

My friend came across an interesting theory/explanation for the "wheeler" in Joey wheeler.

He's named after Wheeler the Planeteer of Fire in Captain Planet.
Wheeler: From North America (specifically Brooklyn, NY), Wheeler controls the power of Fire. At 17 years old, Wheeler is oldest, yet least knowledgable about earth preservation trends.He is the street-smart comic relief for the group whom, while having his heart in the right place, tends to get himself into tight spots when acting impulsively. He also tends to annoy Linka (cough Mai cough), on whom he has an ongoing crush throughout the series. His compassion and fighting spirit adds to the team's backbone.

other parallels:
Wheeler's father had suffered severe liver problems due to a lifetime of drinking.

skip to 5:48... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_w_TE3yuGqw to hear Wheeler in all his Brooklyn-y goodness. XD

I vaaaaguely remember this show because... I was 6 when it aired last... :/ (but i remember it being cool)

I demand a remake of this series.

a thought...

Alright. So Yami no Yuugi (and thus eventually Yuugi) is the King of Games, right? This means he tends to win every game he plays (most of the time, Doma doesn't count). Right?

Well, this got me thinking about something rather crucial to his character and personality. And then this got me thinking about the rest of the major characters through out the series. Winning Duel Monsters is such a prevalent concept. But does that mean they also... Collapse )
