Since the first appearance of Swamp Thing in 1971 House of Secrets # 92, he became one of DC’s most popular characters, thanks in large part to Alan Moore’s critically acclaimed review of the character in the 1980s. During his time with Swamp Thing, Moore significantly Expanded the character’s mythology, transforming him from a monster into an Earth elemental. DC has once again refocused its attention on Swamp Thing, not only creating a new version on Earth-0, but also introducing Spore, which can do what Swamp Thing does, only across the entire multiverse. While the circumstances of Spore’s creation led to his unique abilities, it makes readers wonder if Earth-0’s Swamp Thing could ever achieve such powers.
