Abby and Alec head to a rotted area of swamp. In , DC Comics revived the Swamp Thing series,  attempting to capitalize on the summer release of the Wes Craven film of the same name.
A revival had been planned for , but was a victim of the DC Implosion. The new series, called The Saga of the Swamp Thing , featured an adaptation of the Craven movie in its first annual.
Now written by Martin Pasko , the book loosely picked up after the Swamp Thing's guest appearances in Challengers of the Unknown , DC Comics Presents 8, and The Brave and the Bold , with the character wandering around the swamps of Louisiana seen as an urban legend and feared by locals.
Pasko's main arc depicted the Swamp Thing roaming the globe, trying to stop a young girl and the possible Anti-Christ named Karen Clancy from destroying the world.
When Pasko had to give up work on the title due to increasing television commitments, editor Len Wein assigned the title to British writer Alan Moore.
When Karen Berger took over as editor, she gave Moore free rein to revamp the title and the character as he saw fit. Moore reconfigured the Swamp Thing's origin to make him a true monster, as opposed to a human transformed into a monster.
In his first issue, he swept aside most of the supporting cast that Pasko had introduced in his year-and-a-half run as writer and brought the Sunderland Corporation to the forefront, as they hunted the Swamp Thing down and "killed" him in a hail of bullets.
The subsequent investigation revealed that the Swamp Thing was not Alec Holland transformed into a plant, but actually a wholly plant-based entity created upon the death of Alec Holland, having somehow absorbed duplicates of Holland's consciousness and memories into himself.
He is described as "a plant that thought it was Alec Holland, a plant that was trying its level best to be Alec Holland".
This is explained as a result of the plant matter of the swamp absorbing Holland's bio-restorative formula, with the Swamp Thing's appearance being the plants' attempt to duplicate Holland's human form.
This revelation resulted in the Swamp Thing suffering a temporary mental breakdown and identity crisis, but he eventually re-asserted himself in time to stop the latest scheme of the Floronic Man.
Issue 32 was a strange twist of comedy and tragedy, as the Swamp Thing encounters an alien version of Pogo , Walt Kelly 's character. Moore would later reveal, in an attempt to connect the original one-off Swamp Thing story from House of Secrets 92 to the main Swamp Thing canon, that there had been dozens, perhaps hundreds, of Swamp Things since the dawn of humanity, and that all versions of the creature were designated defenders of the Parliament of Trees , an elemental community which rules a dimension known as "the Green" that connects all plant life on Earth.
Moore's Swamp Thing broadened the scope of the series to include ecological and spiritual concerns while retaining its horror-fantasy roots.
Alan Moore also introduced the concept of the DC characters Cain and Abel being the mystical reincarnations of the Biblical Cain and Abel caught in an endless cycle of murder and resurrection.
The Saga of the Swamp Thing was the first mainstream comic book series to completely abandon the Comics Code Authority 's approval.
With issue 65, regular penciler Rick Veitch took over from Moore and began scripting the series, continuing the story in a roughly similar vein for 24 more issues.
Veitch's term ended in due to a widely publicized creative dispute, when DC refused to publish issue 88 because of the use of Jesus Christ as a character, despite having previously approved the script in which the Swamp Thing is a cupbearer who offers Jesus water when he calls for it from the cross.
Beginning in issue 90, Wheeler reintroduced Matango, a character that Stephen Bissette had introduced in Swamp Thing Annual 4. After a period of high creative turnover,  in DC sought to revive interest in Swamp Thing by bringing horror writer Nancy A.
Collins on board to write the series. Starting with Swamp Thing Annual 6, Collins moved on to write Swamp Thing vol.
Her stories tended to be ecologically based and at one point featured giant killer flowers. With issue March , the title was handed over to Grant Morrison for a four-issue story arc, co-written by the then-unknown Mark Millar.
As Collins had destroyed the status quo of the series, Morrison sought to shake the book up with a four-part storyline which had the Swamp Thing plunged into a nightmarish dreamworld scenario where he was split into two separate beings: Alec Holland and the Swamp Thing, which was now a mindless being of pure destruction.
Millar then took over from Morrison with issue , and launched what was initially conceived as an ambitious part storyline where the Swamp Thing would be forced to go upon a series of trials against rival elemental forces.
Millar brought the series to a close with issue in a finale where the Swamp Thing becomes the master of all elemental forces, including the planet.
Written by Brian K. Due to the circumstances under which she was conceived, the Swamp Thing, possessing John Constantine , was not aware that he was given a blood transfusion by a demon.
She held power over both plants and flesh. Believing herself to be a normal human girl named Mary who had miraculously recovered from cancer three years prior, she rediscovers her powers and identity when she finds her boyfriend and best friend betraying her on prom night.
In a moment of anger, her powers manifest and she kills them both. During this series, it seems that the Swamp Thing and Abigail have reunited as lovers and are living in their old home in the Louisiana swamps outside Houma.
The home in which they live more closely resembles the one that the Swamp Thing constructs for Abigail during the Moore run than the home in which they dwell during the Collins run.
Also, Vaughan's Swamp Thing does not seem to have been divorced from the humanity of his Alec Holland self. The disconnection between these two entities becomes a plot point in Volume 4.
A fourth series began in , with writers Andy Diggle 1—6 , Will Pfeifer 7—8 and Joshua Dysart 9— In this latest series, the Swamp Thing is reverted to his plant-based Earth elemental status after the first storyline, and he attempts to live an "eventless" life in the Louisiana swamps.
Issue 29 was intended to be the final issue of the fourth volume, which was cancelled due to low sales numbers. The conclusion of the crossover event Brightest Day revealed that the Swamp Thing had become corrupted by the personality of the villain Nekron in the wake of the Blackest Night crossover event.
The Swamp Thing went on a rampage in Star City, ultimately seeking to destroy all life on Earth. The Entity within the White Lantern used several heroes, including Hawkman , Hawkgirl , Firestorm , the Martian Manhunter , Aquaman and Deadman to slow the rampage and to construct a new Swamp Thing based on the body of Alec Holland.
Instead of merely thinking that it was Holland, this version of the Swamp Thing would actually be him. The new Swamp Thing defeated and killed the corrupted and original Swamp Thing.
The Swamp Thing then restored life to natural areas around the world and declared that those who hurt the Green would face his wrath. He also restored Aquaman, Firestorm, Hawkman, and the Martian Manhunter to normal.
The book ended with the Swamp Thing killing several businessmen who engaged in deliberate, illegal polluting activities. This three—issue miniseries follows immediately after the events of Brightest Day , and follows the actions of John Constantine as he tries to work out what has changed with the Swamp Thing and track him down, with the assistance of Zatanna , the Batman , and Superman.
DC Comics relaunched Swamp Thing with issue 1 in September as part of The New 52 ,  with writer Scott Snyder and Annual. Snyder's run concluded with "Rotworld", a crossover event between Swamp Thing , Animal Man and Frankenstein, Agent of S.
