To be added
The Man-Thing is a monster without a personal consciousness, and he's all with the swamp. He doesn't have moral values, and he kills whoever put the swamp and the Nexus at risk.
He's incredibly strong and he's virtually invulerable, since he's always regenerated by the swamp itself. He's composed by plants and other living beings of the swamp, which he controls with his thoughts.
