It’s Only Love Doing Its Swamp Thing.

§ June 19th, 2011 § Filed under swamp thing § 5 Comments

So reader LT was good enough to send along a couple of DC Universe Online screen shots featuring Swamp Thing…he tells me this first screen is a shot of Swampy in the Justice League Watchtower’s arboretum (which, I guess if you’re going to have Swamp Thing hanging out with our favorite superheroes, they better make him feel at home in their satellite headquarters):

Here’s a better look at the detail on Swamp Thing’s skin. Looks like the League also offers Turtle Waxing services:

Pull back a bit, and we see a few more characters in the scene with Swampy:

Facing off against Mr. S. Thing (who seems to have a nice grimace, there) is LT’s character:

And off to the side is another character standing next to one of the JLA’s gardening staffers, who clearly is in a rush to finish his work and has no patience for any superhero shenanigans:

LT also tells me that in the game, Swamp Thing’s voice “sounds like somebody trying to do a Barry White parody.” I’m sure that came in handy when Swamp Thing started putting the moves on Abby.

Thanks, LT, for sending those screenshots along!

    Oh yeah that voice is horrible, “I am…. …. Swamp Thing… … … … And I represent the green… … … …. …. growing things… …. …. …. ….. …… ….. of earth.”

    You have to listen to it over and over and it takes forever.

  • I HAD to check out the Swampy appearance, and found a clip on youtube.

    The voice sounds a lot like Michael Dorn (aka ; WORF from ST: TNG), but while I thought it was the ubiquitous Phil LaMarr, it was someone named Chilimbwe Washington.

    Never before has the green sounded so groovy.

    If I was publishing self-insertion fanfic,it wouldn’t be about Spider-Man explaining pissing to me.

    Still in severe Swamp Thing completist mode here (want to get all this done before Snyder’s new ST hits the shelves):

    Find anything in those letters pages from The House of Secrets Speaks? I’d like to see the initial responses to the very first ST story from HoS #92 since those letters were so important!

    Also, a new request. Need the complete rundown explaining the following magazines:

    Critics Choice Files Magazine Spotlight #1: Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing.

    Critics Choice Files Magazine Spotlight #2: Swamp Thing—Green Mansions.

    Critics Choice Files Magazine Spotlight #3: Swamp Thing—Finale.
