When an attempt on Dr. Alec Hollandâ€™s life leaves him consumed by deadly chemicals and fire, the swamps of Louisiana transform him into a superhuman creature hell-bent on ridding the swampâ€”and the worldâ€”of the evil that men do, beginning with his arch nemesis, Dr. Anton Arcane, the mad scientist responsible for Hollandâ€™s monstrous new incarnation as Swamp Thing.
Inspired by and based on the DC Comics character, Swamp Thing has become a major, recognized brand through comic books, film and television. Starring Dick Durock (reprising his title role from the popular Swamp Thing feature films), Mark Lindsay Chapman, Carrell Myers and featuring Kari Wuhrer (Sliders), Swamp Thing, the original television series that ran on USA Network from 1990-93, follows the tortured creature that was once a man and his quest to regain the humanity that was taken from him, purging the swamp of evildoers along the way.
