Check out the Swamp Thing DC Comics Statue. “Dr. Alec Holland had all the answers... he was an intelligent man... but Alec Holland is dead... and in his place stands only a... SWAMP THING!” Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present Swamp Thing! The Swamp Thing, also known by Dr. Alec Holland is an elemental creature who shares a connection to all plant life on the planet Earth through a network called the Green. He is a mass of vegetable matter that absorbed the memories and personality of Alec Holland, a botanist who died in a swamp shortly after creating a hormonal Bio-Restorative Formula for plants.
