So, instead, let's talk about Swamp Thing. The original eco-warrior. He never set out to be a hero. But, that's what he became. First, he was a scientist. You might think a scientist working the swamps of Georgia would be safe from supervillains, but, no! Apparently, when you're working on a plant that can survive anywhere, word gets out. And before you know it, you're a mutated beast fighting another mutated beast to save the woman you love and the world. Stuff happens.
I met Swamp Thing in the 80s movie pictured above and I've loved him ever since. He's that reluctant hero, doing what he feels is morally right and accepting the way his life changes with quiet dignity. Plus, have you ever been to the swamp? I totally can picture some kind of swamp creature living there meting out justice to wrongdoers among the hanging vines and murky water. Can't you?
