Get an early look at Swamp Thing, the latest champion from Infinite Crisis – the free-to-play MOBA from Turbine based in the DC Universe! On Wednesday, December 17, players can step into a new protector role when Swamp Thing goes live in the game!
A brilliant chemist, Alec Holland had long been developing “a bio-restorative formula” which promised to solve food shortages forever. Tragically, thugs hired by a rival who wanted to steal the formula triggered an explosion in Alec’s lab, destroying it and killing Alec. The explosion saturated nearby plants with the experimental formula giving birth to the Swamp Thing.
Possessing Alec’s memories, the Swamp Thing initially thought he was Alec reborn and cursed the monster he had now become. However, in time he learned the truth: He was actually one in a long line of elemental protectors summoned by the Parliament of Trees. This group of sentient plants protected the Green, the force that created and sustained plant life on Earth. Swamp Thing embraced his role as protector and, thanks to the memories he inherited from Alec, expanded his charge to the protection of all life on Earth.
Swamp Thing can endure tremendous damage and is capable of complete regeneration. He also has control over plant life, and can command it to do his bidding.
