The Dark Avatar was a corrupted version of Swamp Thing.

In the wake of the Blackest Night, the Swamp Thing was corrupted by the personality of Nekron and believed to be an incarnation of the said entity as it had once believed himself to be Alec Holland. Dubbed as the "Dark Avatar", it went on a rampage in Star City, ultimately seeking to destroy all life on Earth. The Entity within the White Lantern used several heroes, including Hawkman, Hawkgirl, Firestorm, Martian Manhunter, Aquaman and Deadman to slow the rampage and to construct a new Swamp Thing based on the body of Alec Holland. The corrupted entity was quickly defeated and destroyed by the new Swamp Thing.
