Synopsis for "Seeds of Destruction"
At the Sunderland conference, Swamp Thing states that the corporation is using his DNA without his consent and warns them that they're not their property, but promises them he will provide them cities along with food before leaving with Flora. The Sunderland stock takes a massive hit in about a year after the meeting, leading to its executives quitting or being fired including Sally Quaid. The cult worshipping Swamp Thing again requests him to destroy the world and build a new one with him as its king, but he rebuffs the proposal.
Phil, the leader of the cult, the decides to proceed with Thomas Cain's plan and convinces Avery Sunderland to try becoming the President of the United States. Alec meanwhile has built plant cities over the past year where he offers food and habitation for free, in addition to free schooling. Avery soon becomes the President and after taking office, is shown the nuclear football by Thomas and the newly appointed Attorney General Phil. After finding Swamp Thing's location, Avery decides to launch a nuclear strike on him.
Thomas and Phil however take advantage of the President not knowing how to launch a missile, assuring him that they'll do it themselves but instead launch missiles to destroy the world. As they take Avery to hide in a fallout shelter along with their cult, Swamp Thing destroys the nuclear missiles by reaching out to the dust and moss present in the missile silos and all the tiny particles of life. This action however results in his death.
Twenty years later, Phil and his cult decide to head back to the surface, but realize the world was never destroyed. When he meets with Swamp Thing, the latter states that he was killed while trying to stop the nuclear missiles but was revived by Flora and that the world is built on what we pass on to the future generations instead of death.
