Who is Swamp Thing?

Swamp Thing was created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson and first appeared in DC’s House of Secrets #92. Alec Holland was a botanist who developed a serum called the Bio-Restorative Formula in a laboratory in Lousiana. While on the run from an evil orginization, Alec was shot and fell into one of the swamps, where he was assumed to be dead before transforming into the superhero Swamp Thing. Swamp Thing is associated with the Parliament of Trees, the Justice League and most notably in the New 52, the Justice League Dark. Swamp Thing’s abilities include Plant Manipulation, Super-human strength, elasticity, and has mastered the elements of earth, fire, water and air.
