A super hero from the DC Universe, who roams the swamps of Louisiana. He has been featured in several comics, films, and television shows. His video game appearances however, are however relatively rare.
Swamp Thing was once Doctor Alec Holland, but after being caught on fire, doused with strange chemicals, and dumped into the Louisiana swamps by the evil Dr. Anton Arcane, Alec's body mutated. No longer is he human, or even an animal. Instead he has become a plant elemental, composed completely of botanical matter, with the mind of a man. Generally, he is driven by ecological justice, though he occasional becomes involved in more mundane superhero affairs.
Swamp Thing's powers are myriad, and seem to vary in strength and scope depending on the writer behind him. Most commonly, Swamp thing displays super human strength and durability, regenerative powers, as well as varying control over plant life.
His greatest nemesis is Dr. Anton Arcane, the uncle of his lover Abigail Arcane.
