   * Matt Cable and Jefferson Bolt capture the Swamp Thing in his Louisiana bayou, then take him back to DDI headquarters in Washington, D.C. There, the Swamp Thing confesses to Matt Cable that he is Alec Holland, something Cable had long suspected but hadn't wanted to admit. He and Abigail Arcane decide to break him out of his prison and help him escape. Bolt tries to stop them at first, until Cable tells him what he learned from the Swamp Thing, and he agrees to help them with their plot to let Swamp Thing escape by burying him in the grave of the dead scientist who was killed trying to protect him, allowing Swamp Thing to later escape.
