He's the mean, green, sludge with a grudge and he's here to save the big bad Bayou from evil. The swamp thing is back and ready to prove why he's one of DC comics' most popular cult super heroes. Our story begins with Abby (Heather Locklear), a beautiful horticulturist desperately trying to solve the mystery behind her mother's death. It's a journey that will leap her to the laboratory of her evil stepfather Dr. Arcane (Louis Jourdan). Monstrously splicing the genes of swamp creatures with those of humans, Dr. Arcane plans to create an anti-aging serum. But there's only one thing that can save Abby from the diabolical clutches of Dr. Arcane, and that's the swamp thing. Rising from the murky depths of the Bayou, he's about to wreak swampy hell.
