Debuting in the pages of this fall’s SWAMP THING ANNUAL #2, The Burgher Thing is a previous Avatar of the Green. Using the knowledge he acquired as a Swamp Thing during the 1500s, The Burgher Thing is appointed by the Parliament of Trees to become the Swamp Thing of today’s guide. His purpose is to train Swamp Thing about what more he can do with his powers due to the challenge issued to him by Seeder.
