BUT WHAT IF?
If Return Of The Phantom had gone ahead as originally intended then the World would have been robbed of the hero Captain Africa! Without Captain Africa to light up the lives of those who really needed him, the other Captains of Earth (Captain America, Captain Planet and Cap'n Crunch) would have had to fill the large void created by his absence.
This would have resulted in all of the Captains having to work overtime and occasionally the odd nightshift. Gradually all the extra hours would have proved a few hours too many and after being overworked and underpaid the Captains would have contacted their union, Captains Unite for Nicer Treatment, to complain about such harsh working conditions. Captains Unite for Nicer Treatment would have then taken action on behalf of the Captains by putting them all on strike and with none of them able to cross the picket line, the World would have faced numerous disasters without its greatest champions! Eventually the situation would have escalated beyond belief and after numerous hardships humanity would have turned into vicious savages, caring for nothing except survival. Earth would have faced its darkest day!
