Synopsis for "Dark Genesis"Edit
- Synopsis not yet written.
- This issue is reprinted in Roots of the Swamp Thing #1, DC Special Series #2, Swamp Thing: Dark Genesis and the Secret of the Swamp Thing collection.
- The origin of the Swamp Thing is revealed in this issue.
- Many resources cite House of Secrets (Volume 1) #92 as the first appearance of Alec Holland. However, the creature that appears in that issue is actually Alex Olsen, a man who became a swamp monster during the turn of the century. Writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson recreated the Olsen character as Alec Holland who makes his comic debut in this issue.
- For many years, it has been widely accepted that Alec Holland physically transformed into the Swamp Thing. Swamp Thing (Volume 2) #21 establishes that the Swamp Thing is actually a separate entity that had absorbed Holland's memories and personality. Alec Holland's physical remains were eventually recovered, buried, disinterred and later buried again.
