Swamp Brothers - Swamp Thing - Netflix
The Swamp Thing is a fictional character and antihero in comic books
published by American company DC Comics. A humanoid/plant elemental
creature, created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, Swamp
Thing has had several humanoid or monster incarnations in various
different storylines. The character first appeared in House of Secrets
92 (July 1971) in a stand-alone horror story set in the early 20th
century. The character then returned in a solo series, set in the
contemporary world and in the general DC continuity. The character is a
swamp monster that resembles an anthropomorphic mound of vegetable
matter, and fights to protect its swamp home, the environment in
general, and humanity from various supernatural or terrorist threats.
The character found perhaps its greatest popularity during the 1970s and
early 1990s. Outside of an extensive comic book history, Swamp Thing has
inspired two theatrical films, a live-action television series, and a
five-part animated series, among other media. IGN ranked him 28th in the
“Top 100 Comic Book Heroes” list.
