About Captain Euro

CAPTAIN EURO- HIS ORIGINS

Captain Euro is the superhero persona of Adam Andros. Adam took over the giant SUSTANIA Corporation following the murder of his father, and has dedicated his life to keeping Europe united, and moving towards global sustainability in all areas of human society.

Prior to becoming Captain Euro, Adam Andros was an investigative journalist and a writer with a deep interest in international affairs, social psychology and identity. He discovered his deep passion for keeping Europe together while reporting on the horrific events of the Yugoslav wars, where he made the realization that unity was the only way to move towards peace in Europe. Following the release of his bestselling book which explained his experiences in Yugoslavia and the need for a new age of European Enlightenment, Adam goes on an incredible adventure where he finds out who he really is and comes face to face with his arch-nemesis, Dr. D. Vider, for the first time.

You can learn more about how Adam became Captain Euro in the origins story.

At the head of SUSTANIA, Captain Euro has assembled a crack team of top sustainability experts to help him achieve his goal of keeping Europe together, and ensuring the future of mankind. His team includes Europa, Erik, Marcus, Helen, Pythagoras, and Lupo. Together, they have the team spirit, brainpower, high-tech gadgetry and strength to tackle even the world’s biggest problems!

CAPTAIN EURO’S ADVENTURES

Captain Euro and his team operate from diverse secret bases located in iconic locations around Europe like the Eiffel Tower (Paris), the Atomium Building (Brussels), the Colosseum (Rome) or the Big Ben in London. He promotes non-violence and does not have super powers. He uses the power of the intellect, persuasion, and strategy to solve humanity’s problems and to defeat those who would damage our world. During his adventures, Captain Euro encounters a wide variety of exciting and interesting characters, both fictional and real. Not only do we get to see him going toe to toe with the evil Dr. D. Vider and his henchmen, but we also get to enjoy watching Captain Euro negotiating with world leaders, monitoring political affairs, and developing groundbreaking ideas to advance sustainability.

CAPTAIN EURO’S ENEMIES

Captain Euro faces a variety of adversaries. His main adversary is evil and ruthless speculator DR. DEXTER VIDERIUS (aka DR. D. VIDER), and his evil DIVIDEX conglomerate, a global giant whose only goal is expansion, at any cost.

Dr. D. VIDER is the billionaire at the head of DIVIDEX. All he cares about is making more money, with no concern for the suffering of others. His ultimate goal is to break Europe apart. He believes that doing this will create a climate of absolute global economic disaster and ruin which he can use to secure cheap investments and developments, which in the long term can net him incredible profits. He can also use the break-up to exert more influence and power over the now-weaker states.

One of the companies owned by DIDIVEX is a travelling CIRCUS, which he uses as a front and secret base to recruit his evil followers. Dr. D. VIDER’s team includes his son JUNIOR VIDERIUS, the sole heir to Dr. D. VIDER’s evil empire, NINOT, a human cannonball working in the circus, with a flair for sleight of hand and computer hacking, and MALA SEVILLE, a former child star of the trapeze, lion tamer and knife thrower; among others.

THE CAPTAIN EURO RELAUNCH

Captain Euro® was originally launched back in the 1990s to help launch the new Euro currency, and solve Europe’s lack of clear identity. It created instant public impact, appearing on the cover of The Wall Street Journal, Time magazine, The Times, BBC, The Sun, CNN and news channels around the world. He was a divisive and exciting figure. With the Euro’s successful launch and reception, Captain Euro had done his job!

AT LEAST, UNTIL NOW! Now, Captain Euro has returned to solve the EU’s identity crisis and tackle global issues from an entirely different angle. He’s back, and this time, it’s personal! Times have changed, and so has he.

With Captain Euro’s relaunch comes an entirely new approach and audience. The new Captain Euro uses the power of satire, humour, and intrigue to raise awareness of critical global issues.

He is also tasked with exposing and criticizing areas which lack effective global governance, or systems with excess bureaucracy; particularly in the context of contemporary national, European and global politics. These new stories include Captain Euro dealing with global issues and world leaders including Barack Obama, Angela Merkel, Matteo Renzi, European Commission President Juncker, Vladimir Putin and David Cameron, among others. When world leaders want advise and wisdom about EU and global affairs, they come to Captain Euro. Who else!?
