Floronic Man in Swamp Thing

Yesterday was Christmas (December 25). Christmas is associated with Christmas tree. The villain character who pops in my head is Floronic Man. This character shows up in the TV show Swamp Thing.
Swamp Thing  started production the fall 2018 in North Carolina. Swamp Thing was executive produced by James Wan. James is famous for be a director in Insidious (2010), Insidious: Chapter 2 (2013), Conjuring (2013), Furious 7 (2015), The Conjuring 2 (2016) and Aquaman (2018).
Swamp Thing first appearance was in House of Secrets #92 (July 1971) published by DC Comics and created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. Swamp Thing fought against people who killed his wife and people who caused him to turn into this monster. One of the villains will be Dr. Anton Arcane. Dr. Arcane has an obsession of immortality. Swamp Thing has developed a special bond with Dr. Arcane’s niece, Abigail. This TV show is similar to the movie The Shape of Water (2017 American dark romantic fantasy movie winning Best Picture).
Jennifer Beals (famous for her role in L Word and Taken) plays the part of Sheriff Lucilla Cable. Crystal Reed (famous for her role in TV Wolf and Gotham) plays the part of Abby Arcane.

Kevin Durand plays Jason Woodrue also known as Floronic Man.  The picture above is a courtesy from wikipedia.com This character first appeared in Flash 245 published by DC Comics.  Unfortunately, he is not on the cover. Floronic Man is a biogeneticist who has the ability to control plant life. It is a bummer we only see Dr. Woodrue in the tv show and not Floronic Man until the end. Maybe WB will make season 2 of Swamp Thing and then we will see more Floronic Man.

Flash 245 can be bought on ebay for $5-$10 plus shipping back in the fall 2018. Now you are looking at $10-20 plus shipping.
