Strange to think he hasn't been done yet. Since Rourke has been PE Approved.

My 9th PG Proposal, and my second for a Disney character, after Soos Ramirez. Atlantis is a good film, my younger and older brothers and I watched it way back in the early 2010s and it still has it's merits. This is technically a formality post, since he's under Pure Good. Just not under Approved Good Articles. Of course it's time to talk about Milo James Thatch.

I'm sorry that I misspelled proposal, didn't mean to spell it like that. Nevermind, EmeraldBlade fixed it.

What's the work?

Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a 2001 film by Disney about a group of adventurers on a journey to find the titular city way underground. It's main protagonist is Milo Thatch.

Atlantis: Milo's Return is another film which is direct to video and released in 2003. It was originally meant to be a pilot for a new Atlantis series which has Milo uncovering another Atlantean city in a desert, stopping the Kraken from plaguing a town, and preventing the end of the world from some delusional moron with a spear.

Who is he?

Milo Thatch, grandson of his Atlantis obsessed grandfather. Milo Thatch embarks on a quest to find the lost city of Atlantis. And fights of Commander Rourke to prevent him from killing all the citizens of Atlantis, and later prevents Ragnarok in the sequel.

What has he done?

The Lost Empire

  • He respected his grandfather at a young age. And continues his search for Atlantis after the latter's demise. As a result he became a good linguist and historian.
  • He tried to get funding for a search to Atlantis.
  • He guided his crew to Atlantis and put up with their terrible chef. Also, unlike the other members of his crew, he has no tendency to be rude or condescending or even mischievous. And while he did throw away the chef's meal into a fire, it was understandable due to the fact that it really didn't look nice.
  • He most likely stopped the crew from getting killed by Atlanteans upon their arrival, since he was able to figure out that they speak multiple languages.
  • Even though he did not volunteer for it, he still went ahead with the crew request to talk to Kida and learn more about the city.
  • He and Kida attempt to learn and restore Atlantis' knowledge and power. They both learned how to restore Atlantis' flying vehicle thingy. Which was a huge plot point later, as they used them to defeat Rourke.
  • He forgave his friends when they betrayed Rourke.
  • He tried to protect Kida from the Heart of Atlantis before Rourke stopped him.
  • He tried to save the king of Atlantis with one of the crystals before the king denied the offer.
  • He led the mission to rescue Kids and taught them how to use the flying machines.
  • He personally fought Rourke toe to toe and helped destroy his balloon.
  • He stayed a little longer in the volcano to hook Kida to one of the flying vehicles. Thus he saved both the Heart of Atlantis and Kida.
  • He used a spear to break Kida out of Rourke's container.
  • Due to saving Kida, the heart of Atlantis was able to make the giant statues surrounding the city to shield the city from the volcano's explosion.
  • He gave one of the crystals to Whitmore as a thank you note.

Milo's Return

  • After his friends come back to Atlantis and tell Milo about a mysterious creature in Norway:
    • Milo finds out that the Kraken is causing numerous problems with shipments.
    • He defeats the town owner who was sacrificing souls to the Kraken.
    • The town becomes much less gloomy after the Kraken's defeat.
  • After finding out about a Western Atlantean city, he promised the Coyote Spirit that they would not tell anyone about the city.
  • He prevents the end of the world at the hands of Erik Hellstrom.
  • After obtaining the spear the Erik stole, Kida combines it with the Heart of Atlantis to make Atlantis rise above the ocean. Milo's friend Mr. Whitmore, who funded the trip, claimed that the world was a much better place after this.
  • Ultimately, due to his actions in both films, he restores Atlantis culture and power to one huge degree. Allowing Atlantis to thrive.

Corrupting Factors?

  • In the montage of Milo guiding them to Atlantis, he accidently led them to the wrong cavern, which made a monster attack the truck, however, the truck didn't really get damaged and no one got hurt. This was not brought up again, and due to it being an accident and the fact that no one got hurt makes me think it's not corrupting.
  • Milo accidentally aimed his flashlight on the firebugs in the cave when they all set up camp in the cave outside Atlantis. However, it is never said if anyone died. Also it is implied that everyone survived the event due to Rourke's mass amount of men in the volcano.
  • He briefly gave up hope when Rourke blew up the wooden bridges, however he quickly regained his confidence once Sweet the doctor convinced him to fight Rourke after an inspirational quote from Thaddeus Thatch.
  • He crystallized Rourke at the climax of the film, but this was necessary as Rourke was close to killing him, not to mention that Rourke was endangering the Atlanteans by stealing the Heart of Atlantis which was fused with Kida.

Final Verdict?

With Milo Thatch, I think he has a relatively strong chance of being approved due to saving Atlantis from Rourke (a Pure Evil) and the world from Erik Hellstrom, and restoring Atlantis' was of life and culture was something no one could do easily. Not to mention the fact that he doesn't really have any corrupting factors.
