@matchesmalone21: There are going to be some awesome respect worthy scans from rot world since he will be fighting so many different rot infected characters. I hope they really show the fight next issue. It will be awesome to see how he beats Superboy and the others.

Swamp Thing 16

In Rotworld future,Batman create a serum capable to cure rotted people,,but has no way of summarizing it and knew the Swamp Thing, would be the only one able to do it. Alec uses his own body to create the missing components (at Metamorpho style) and added the Venom to fortify formula

Swamp Thing 19

Causing the ground engulf an oasis and summon giant vines to round up some mercenaries in the middle of the desert.
Alec can change his size and traveling to any place where there are plants,even in microscopic ones.
A quick battle against Scarecrow
After Scarecrow using carbon dioxide against him,Swamp Thing faints and lose control over the plants,that begin to attack Metropolis

#30 Posted by Cap10nate (2296 posts) - - Show Bio

@matchesmalone21: Another great issue. The only question I had was with the carbon dioxide being what hurt him. Since plants breathe in CO2, shouldn't it have no effect on him. It was good to see his power engulf Metropolis though. Very reminiscent of his siege on Gotham.

#31 Posted by matchesmalone21 (8752 posts) - - Show Bio

@cap10nate: True. Charles Soule fails there,but still is a great issue

Justice League Dark 19

If enter in contact with enchanted plant life he would still able to control it and it's abilities (probably). Swamp Thing can also track someone/something through the Green.
Doctor Destiny implies Swamp Thing has a important role in Trinity War.

#33 Posted by Lvenger (19851 posts) - - Show Bio

@matchesmalone21: So Swamp Thing has a role in the Trinity War? Interesting. Nice scans mate!

#34 Edited by matchesmalone21 (8752 posts) - - Show Bio

@lvenger: Ohh yeah!!!! I can't wait to read Trinity War

#35 Posted by matchesmalone21 (8752 posts) - - Show Bio

Swamp Thing 20

Without Swamp Thing the plant life is out of control and soon would destroy Metropolis.
Swamp Thing can heal himself,as showed after being burned by Superman (This means he can heal destroyed plant life).

Holding Scarecrow. Destroying his body and rebuilding it in another place.

Found myself enjoying the last two issues Soule did over the rushed Snyder blockbuster. can't wait for more from the new team. the art fits perfectly as well. next issue can't come soon enough.

#39 Edited by Damian_Arrows (53 posts) - - Show Bio

@cap10nate: higher amounts of CO2 (along with a normal temperature, moisture, and nitrogen levels) would increase his growth. so, Soule got it right.

Swamp Thing 21

Regrowing his head.

Swamp Thing 22

Tracking the Seeder through The Green to a small village in Scotland,Alec is able to sneak upon the citizens by just enter into other plants and growing his body inside of it.

Swamp Thing 23

After Constantine cut his connection with The Green,Alec had to use all remaining energy and willpower to keep your body together so he could escape from jail.

Due to not being connected with The Green his body could be easily destroyed,but his consciousness connects with local flora and uses their pollen to eliminate Seeder's control over the citizens.

Rebuilding his body from a mountain.
