Who's Captain Citrus?

Have you heard of Captain Citrus? He's a superhero, commissioned by "Florida's citrus industry" to promote and sell more orange juice.

According to NPR, Captain Citrus has solar powers and he has cool, green hair. Not only that, but he starts off each day with a healthy drink of Florida orange juice.

I guess you can download his comic book adventures somewhere, but the NPR story doesn't tell you.

Little known story. I used to be a fan of the Legion of Super-Heroes. This was a few reboots ago. I eventually grew tired of learning new origins for my favorite future heroes. But they inspired me to create a superheroic identity for my old dog Moogie: Citrus Lad. He fought crime with the power of citrus. That's about as far as I ever got to defining his powers. But I'm sure he'd take a bite out of Captain Citrus if given half a chance!

Anyway, let me know if you know where to find his comic. I'm tempted to give it a peek!
