BIO:

Swamp Thing is a mysterious and sometimes fear-inducing elemental creature. He shares a connection to all plant life on the Earth through a network known as "The Green". A botanist named Alec Holland met his death in a swamp after creating a hormonal Bio-Restorative Formula for plants. Shortly after, Alec became Swamp thing... a mass of vegetable matter that absorbed his memories and personality. Swamp Thing was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, first appearing in House of Secrets #92 (1971).

It's always interesting when a character with a long pop culture history finally makes their fighting game debut. Aside from being a DC Universe mainstay, Swamp Thing has that immediate name recognition from 70's / 80's & 90's. As far as his Injustice 2 apperance goes, he's easily one of the most interesting and visually pleasing characters in the game. He's got that instant intimidation factor... and those MK9-esk Noob Saibot clone combos are pretty slick too. Other than that, I don't personally see the "big deal" behind this design. Maybe the excitement of this character was before my time (didn't care much for him as an 80's kid), but that's besides the point. Swamp Thing made a pretty cool fighting game character.
