Swamp Thing (Friday, 03 July 2015 17:56) Opponent: Swamp Thing First Appearance: House of Secrets #92 / July 1940 Powers: Control over plant life, Supernatural knowledge, Super strength Alec Holland was an idealistic scientist who was synthesizing a top-secret chemical in his hidden lab in the marshlands. But after a bomb in his office explodes, the young scientist is murdered. Or so it seems. Because rising in his place is the Swamp Thing, a creature made of vegetation that’s absorbed Alec Holland’s memories, personality—and grief. The monstrous Swamp Thing can control every iota of plant life on this planet, from the fungus on stale bread to forests of towering oaks. Superhumanly strong and grotesque, he can grow himself a full array of titanic bodies from even the tiniest sprout of green. A living embodiment of the power and terror in our environment, the Swamp Thing protects both humanity and the environment—usually from each other. And the battle begins: Both Swamp Thing and Superman share the power of super-strength. So that power can be disregarded. Swamp Thing has control over any and all vegetation, however, Superman has the ability to shoot heat waves from his eyes and has super-breath that has been seen to alao be, at times, super cool, this too would kill the plants. Swamp Thing is super smart but when going against Superman, knowledge is usefull but not the end all boost that one would need to defeat him. Now knowing that this battle would never actually happen due to Superman's ecofriendly views and Swamp Thing's natural friendliness, in fact Swamp Thing saves Superman's life in DC Comics Presents #85, yet if it did happen, Superman would most definately win.
